Pardon The Hair! Everybody!

The following are excerpts from a recent news report concerning the impeachment of Rod Blagojevich. Is there anything in the items below that you notice absent? Try and guess:

“Gov. Rod Blagojevich was impeached Friday ...”

“... a defiant Blagojevich insisted again that he committed no crime ...”

“... a victim of political payback ...”

“No other Illinois governor has ever been impeached ...”

“... we supported him and he's disgraced us.”

“... the first U.S. governor in more than 20 years to be impeached.”

“Blagojevich did not testify before the House impeachment committee and has not offered an explanation for the criminal charges.”

“... lawmakers complained that Blagojevich had made a laughingstock out of the state.”

Did you guess it? What good eyes you have!

There is not one single, solitary word about Rod Blagojevich’s hair.

Hair that is not at issue.

Hair that is guilty, it seems, by association only.

Hair that can’t help who’s head it sits atop.

Innocent hair.

Unique hair.

Thick hair.

But, mostly: Blameless hair.

In this time of need in the political system, there has never been more of a call for a pardon.

Someone, please, inform outgoing President George W. Bush to ...

Pardon The Hair

... before he takes leave of office.

As a nation, may I humbly suggest we collectively ...

Pardon The Hair

... if the President cannot or will not.

It didn't do anything other than have the bad luck to sit atop an Illinois head, after all .....

................... Ruprecht ( STOP )

P.S. I sure hope William Devane
doesn't think he had anything to do with this .....

  10. Agrees and adds his own pardon to that of others. It's not enough for locks of love... but its got to be good for something ;)

  11. Shave him and be done with it and give him an asshat. There is no hope for him but his hair.. perhaps.
