Governors of Illinois (The Daily Show Edition)
Jon Stewart (2:50): Here's the truly astonishing part of this story. Rod Blagojevich is now the 4th out of the last 7 elected governors of Illinois to be convicted of a felony. 4 out of the last 7. 57%. If you were an individual in Illinois, you would have a better chance of avoiding jail by flipping a coin - heads being jail, tails being no jail - than by being elected governor of Illinois.
Jon Stewart (3:21): Let's say you're the present governor of Illinois and you're in a room with a former governor of Illinois on your right and a former governor of Illinois on your left, chances are the room you are in is jail.
Any interesting questions we can ask here?
