Meet The New Boss

Same as the old boss?

In case you don’t follow the US political news the former governor of Illinois, Rod Blagobitch was removed from office last night for gross corruption.

As my regular readers know I have been doing work for the state of Illinois so look what I found in my State of Illinois mailbox this morning… I thought it was worth sharing with you!

State of Illinois
Office of The Governor

Governor Pat Quinn
January 29, 2009


Dear State Employees,

I want to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for your exceptional work during this difficult time. The everyday workers of state government deserve a salute - because you are the true embodiment of public service.

In the coming days, we will face some tough choices. I am confident that by working together we will meet these challenges to emerge a much stronger and vibrant state.

As most of you are aware, it’s annual performance review and raise time here in the state.

For your convenience please note that I have attached an automated campaign contribution form so that your contributions to my campaign for reelection can be direct deposited to my fund from your pay check each month. Since I care so deeply about your welfare that is just one less check you have to write each month. Did I mention it’s annual performance review and raise time here in the state?

I believe our state’s best days are ahead. I welcome your help and support as we work together in behalf of the people of Illinois.


Regards,


Pat Quinn

Meet the new boss

Same as the old boss

And the world looks just the same

And history ain't changed'Cause the banners,
they all flown in the last war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
For I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?
YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

There's nothing in the street
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Is now the parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled againNo, no!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

Of course I am kidding you! :) That's my thing, that's what I do!

The fact that you had to ask me though means I did it right! lol!

That is high praise so thank you! :)

You had me until about half way through...the campaign thing was just a little over the top.

Though I'll bet nothing changes in politics in this grand ol' state!

A lot of us are wondering the same thing - - I haven't been able to find anyone south of the Collar Counties who will admit voting for him! I sure didn't - - either time!

I was going to say "pictures or it didn't happen", but I guess that is why there are not any pictures.

Its sad that in the state of IL, stuff like that is believeable.
