Hurry up and say your goodbyes, people.  They’ve sent your boy, Blago, packing according to Livesteez:

Gov. Rod Blagojevich was unanimously convicted at his impeachment trial and tossed out of office Thursday, ending a nearly two-month crisis that began with his arrest on charges he tried to sell Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat. Blagojevich becomes the first U.S. governor in more than 20 years to be removed by impeachment. After a four-day trial, the Illinois Senate voted 59-0 to convict him of abuse of power, automatically ousting the second-term Democrat. Democratic Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn, one of his critics, immediately became governor. In a second 59-0 vote, the Senate further barred Blagojevich from ever holding public office in Illinois again, according to The 52-year-old Democrat gave a passionate closing statement claiming he did nothing wrong. It didn’t sway senators. Blagojevich had defiantly resisted intense pressure to quit. Blagojevich had blasted the proceedings as unfair and refused to participate until the final day.

You don’t have to go home Blago, but you gotta get hell up out that government building!
