  1. Ya know I thought I had been taught a bit about LA politics, but I'm pretty sure that IL is as bad or worse.

    End of the day, dat boy wuz jes playin da game we call politickin!

    The real funny thing is that, it will not change one gotdaaumed thing! Don't mean I'm sad to see him go away for hopefully a very long time, but I suspect to see some long sentence imposed and be out in a year or two.

    He should be able to handle prison ok though, it's obvious he knows how to bend over! Good boy taking one for the team eh?
