New Illinois State Seal…

Good morning, Netizens...
Cartoon Credit: David Horsey/Seattle Post-Intelligencer

As I noted yesterday, the potty-mouthed Illinois State Governor Blagojevich is in deep trouble with the FBI and Justice Department. Hence, according to David Horsey and others, here we have the new Illinois State Seal as modified to fit circumstances.

Before some start muttering that this is because of Blagojevich's being a Democrat one hastens to point out this brings the total to 3 governors in prison in 35 years. What is it? Is there something in the water?

The only thing Horsey forgot in this cartoon is an old-fashioned hard bar of Ivory Soap for Blagojevich's mouth, as based upon the expletives he used frequently during his taped phone conversations. Someone who talks that filthy has no business in the Governor's Office, but behind the wood shed having their mouth washed out with Ivory Snow soap.
