What’s worse; not leaving of your own accord, or waiting for others to tell you to GET. THE .HELL. OUT.?

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – In an unprecedented move, the Illinois attorney general asked the state’s highest court Friday to strip scandal-plagued Gov. Rod Blagojevich of his powers.

Lisa Madigan took the action as pressure on the governor intensified to step down and lawmakers considered impeachment.

“I recognize that this is an extraordinary request, but these are extraordinary circumstances,” Madigan said at a news conference.

It was not immediately clear when the Supreme Court might take up the matter. The justices also have the discretion to deny the attorney general’s request.

The move came as the governor prayed with several ministers in his home before heading to his office, telling them he is innocent and will be vindicated “when you hear each chapter completely written,” according to one of the pastors.

The attorney general asked the court for a temporary restraining order or an injunction that prevents Blagojevich from serving as governor. The filing says he is “unable to serve as governor due to disability and should not rightfully continue to hold that office.”

“The pervasive nature and severity of these pending charges disable Mr. Blagojevich from making effective decisions on critical, time-sensitive issues,” the filing said.

Do we have enough popcorn on hand to watch this drama?  I don’t know about you, but the longer he insists on staying, the more shyt he’s trying to hide, as well as the more people he will take down with him – not to mention the fact that he’s looking guiltier than OJ (y’all knew I was going to go THERE).

And I’m hearing Lisa Madigan really, REALLY, wants that Senate Seat, so I take this development to mean homegirl putting thangs in motion to make it happen.

I’ll take my non-alcoholic mojito and take a break from cramming for finals to watch this entertaintment, LOL.
