* I can’t make up my mind about who should win the t-shirt from yesterday’s QOTD, so I’m leaving it up to you. I’m partial to “unclesam’s” entry, but let’s put this up for a vote.
Please, vote only once. I know this is Illinois, but let’s at least try to keep our own election clean…
I pledge allegiance to Illinois,
and to the power of the Three.
And we shall not be done,
’til it’s a power of One,
And the only choice is ME!
I thought perhaps that I could include a photo of each of the three leaders under that last line, like maybe these…
* “Austin Mayor”
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of Illinois,
Rod R. Blagojevich, Governor,
And to the Republic, Rod R. Blagojevich, Governor,
For which it stands.
One Nation under God, indivisible,
With Liberty, Justice and Rod R. Blagojevich, Governor for all.
I pledge allegiance to the Illinois flag
and to the politicians that top dollar can buy
To the corruption for which it stands
in the heartland
With favors and payouts for the few.
* “God’s Country”
I pledge allegiance to the Blago,
of the deserted mansion in Springfield,
and to the hairstyle, which never moves,
one mindset, that of Rod’s,
with Elvis impersonators and mammograms for all.
* “Yellow Dog Democrat”
I pledge allegiance
to the flag
of the Land of Lincoln.
And to the system,
in Combine’s hands,
Where something’s really stinkin’.
Plenty of contracts
to go around
For those who have the Clout.
But if you want health care,
or better schools,
You’ll have to go without.
* “Poli-Sci Geek”
I pledge allegiance,
to the flag of the great state of illinois,
cuz some guy sent me,
to work this ward,
for some guy I don’t know,
so I might, someday, get a job.
* “The Curmudgeon”
I pledge allegiance to Illinoize
To the good old girls and the good old boys
Who run this State for a favored few,
And to their family members
Who will succeed them:
I pledge my wallet and my vote,
I pledge my car, I pledge my boat,
I pledge the Cubs’ famed Billy Goat.
I pledge to pay and pay and then
I pledge to pay and pay again.
