Impeachment trial starts today

At Noon in Springfield, IL in the state Senate chambers of the Illinois State Capitol. There will be live coverage, head over towards the Illinois Channel for that.

The Governor choosing not to take part in his own impeachment trail is embarking on a media blitz. It largely started in Chicago on Friday. I noted that he came to the neighborhood to visit with Cliff Kelly at WVON-AM.

On Sunday he's made a national appearance on the Today Show. This morning you should have been able to see him on Good Morning America and The View.

BTW, check out Rich Miller's syndicated column this morning. It may offer an indication of how he's run his administration. The conclusion being that he's difficult to control, especially if anyone on his staff or apparently his lawyers doesn't entirely agree with him.

Also read this very scathing blog over at Chicago Carless about the Governor's media blitz. There are links there to editorials around the state about the Governor's call for editorial board support for his rights at the impeachment trial. Hmm, because of what he tried to do with the Tribune as outlined in his criminal complaint or even his boorish behavior towards certain editorial boards outside of Chicago, he's not going to get those types of editorials.

Also over at Illinoize, I blogged about a New York Times article comparing the Senate appointment process of both Blagojevich and NY Gov. David Patterson.

Finally Marathon Pundit takes a look at those reports that seeks to explain the Governor's mental health condition.
