You get a senate seat, and you get a senate seat...

Following up on Ritchie's post this afternoon, it seems to me that when you invoke the names of Mandela, MLK, and Gandhi, there's really only one place left to go:

Illinois' beleaguered Gov. Rod Blagojevich said today that when he was deciding who would take President Obama's Senate seat he considered appointing talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, a suggestion that Winfrey says "left her amused".

The governor said that Winfrey's name came up as a potential successor to Obama in the Senate.
"She seemed to be someone who had helped Barack Obama in a significant way to become president," Blagojevich said. Blagojevich added that "she had a much broader bully pulpit than a lot of senators."
I have a message for the Illinois state legislature: take your time. Really, don't rush this impeachment thing. Consider all the evidence, think everything through, and then make your decision. Because this guy has become just unbelievable. The longer we can keep him in office, the funnier this country is going to be.

UPDATE: It occurs to me that some people may not actually watch The Soup, or other week in review shows, where they might understand the title of the post. So, here's the video explaining it (the key part comes at 0:40, with about 1:20 of silliness after that).
