READER COMMENTS CLOSED FOR THE WEEKEND

Actually, you can continue to comment, but your sage ramblings won’t show up on the blog until Monday morning.
Meanwhile, our group blog Illinoize is in charge.
Below the Illinoize feed are the YouTube items we’ve been featuring today from the Governor’s Thursday press conference. I bumped them to the top at the request of a good pal.
Video 1 from Governor Blagojevich’s Thursday press availability:
Video 2 from the governor’s Thursday press availability:
Brief excerpt: Gov. Blagojevich has serious difficulty answering questions on “the check” …
Another brief excerpt: Gov. Blagojevich spars with the Chicago Tribune reporter who broke the “check” story in the first place …
Scroll down for lots more.
Also, I never did post what the Illinois Times wrote about the blog this week.
For those in the Land of Lincoln with a political sweet tooth, Millerâ€™s blog is like a candy store, chockfull of tasty morsels of news from every corner of the state â€” with a few nuts sprinkled in. Arguably the most important site for Illinois political observers, the Capitol Fax blog is more of a news portal than traditional Web logs in which you mainly â€œhearâ€ the siteâ€™s author. On â€œyour Illinois news radar,â€ the voice of Capitol Fax publisher and Illinois Times columnist Rich Miller is but a faint blip. Miller is humble â€” during this springâ€™s gubernatorial primaries he turned down an invitation to predict the outcomes, saying that prognosticators set themselves up to look like fools â€” and for that reason we think Capitol Fax is a shoo-in for next yearâ€™s award, as well.
