Chicago - Just when you thought you'd heard it all with regard to Illinois' travesty of a Governor Rod Blagojevich, better known these days as Blago, now comes the cake.
Blago it seems has an internet pen pal named Koko, as in the famous Gorilla Koko, whom researchers claim has a vocabulary of nearly 30000 symbols (possibly more than the Governor).
While he's taken many a strange turn, it now seems that ideas such as withholding money for statewide 4-H programs, moving the IDOT from Springfield to Benton, Illinois and quoting old Hank Williams songs at prayer breakfasts are being blamed on a Gorilla. A Blagojevich spokeswoman said, "We now know that it was Koko that encouraged Tony Rezco to offer jobs in return for contributions to the Blagojevich campaign fund. The Governor had nothing to do with it."
House Speaker Michael Madigan had this to say about the revelation, "Well I guess that makes him the missing link doesn't it?"
