Saving Governor Ryan from the shame and castigation he so richly deserves would just not be right. Today, as the worst governor in Illinois history leaves office--ethical scandals, corruption, failure to execute justice on all convicted murderers--let's give Loathsome George an appropriate send-off.

Take your pic and caption it.

I can't wait to ask my friend in Decatur how far this senile old man has set back the Republican party there.

You don't have to ask your friend, I can tell you personally. Lyin' Ryan has killed the GOP in Illinois for many years to come.

I can tell you: this vile, evil man has utterly destroyed the Illinois Republican party. The only one left who has any balls at all to stand up to the corruption is our senator Peter Fitzgerald, and he's being targetted by infighting members of his own party. As our new Chicago mob boss...er, I meant governor..is sworn in today, I see absolutely no hope of any comeback for the party in this state for many years to come. Congratulations, Corrupt King George, Illinois has become the California of the plains.

The pictures of the former governor with Jackson persuade me that Ryan did this more for himself than he did for the condemned prisoners. With the possible exeception of Jimmy Carter there is likely no man drawing breath today more utterly convinced of his own essential goodness and decency that Ryan. Make no mistake about it: there are enormous psychic advantages to his actions--but only if he can bask in the very public praise of the liberal media and the dominent liberal culture in which he moves.

Ryan has now lowered the Illinois Republicans to the same level as the Daley/Dimocrats.

What were your state party officials doing/saying during the election processes behind his climb to the Governorship? Did they try to strangle conservative opposition? Did they push him as the only 'viable' candidate?

I ask because of the tendency for Republican leadership to court and groom RINO's in favor of conservatives in many situations and at all levels. I suspect this was the case here, but I'd like your input.

I could be wrong about the lavish liberal praise. It could be a local thing only. I just went to DU and looked hard for any mention of Ryan's death cell jailbreak. Not a single mention anywhere. Interesting.

I have a question. How many of the attorneys that got a death penalty conviction were later disbarred or suspended? How many of the judges were removed or suspended or penalized in some way in these convictions? An outsider looking in on this thinks he made a very hard, wise decision, especially in this climate of fingerpointing and blame.

The next governor, to save his butt, would be placing blame on Ryan for not doing anything about a system that was broken.


Walk a day in my shoes, then we'll talk.

Wrong on both counts. It wasn't hard for him because he's not a conservative; and wisdom considers particulars rather than making one-size-fits-all decisions.

King George Ryan is just as liberal as Riordan is too. But the tragedy is that Lyin' Ryan isn't even honest enough to campaign as one. He ran as a anti-abortion, pro-capital punishment tax-cuter, and has since governored to the left of Tom Dasshole. Perhaps that explains why his approval rating has been in the toilet long before the licenses-for-bribes scandal of his even became big news.

But according to the media elites and RINOs/uninformed freepers, Lyin' Ryan is such a "principled conservative Republican" for communting the sentences of all 160 murderers without even reviewing the cases. No wonder political corruption is so rampent, when abuse of power and breaking every one of your campaign pledges is considered a admiral trait.

Voting for Ryan's last opponent was one of the very few times I voted for a Democrat---and I'm proud of that vote.

If I was in his shoes, I'd would have resigned in disgrace years ago and pleded gulity to causing the deaths of dozens of motorists by giving liceneses to incompentant illegal aliens. Only then could I live with myself for what happened under my watch as Secretary of State.

Sure makes a hell of a lot more sence if he wants a "legacy" standing up for "innocent" people that could be killed.

I'm George Ryan, I'm a lying RINO SOB, I'm corrupt and I can do anything I want. How dare all of you simpletons at that hate-filled webzine FreeRepublic critize me. These people are just misunderstood and that reallly irritates me that you question me. Ein volk, ein reich, ein fuhrer. Hail King George.

Similar thought crossed my mind about Riordan in the unlikely event he was elected.

George Ryan has done something I never would have thought possible. That being, that I am actually glad to see a republican (Ryan) replaced by an incoming democrat.

This guy could even beat Bloomberg and Jeffords out for the Worst RINO. What a pile of steaming &#%$

He looks as power mad as Nero. I usually try to respect my elders but this guy stinks. I blame the Republican party for pushing these RINO's to the front of the party.

People are looking for a change, the country is moving right, I'm sure politicians will be the last to know.

The area around Chicago is heavily Rat, but downstate GOP votes had kept a Rat out of the Governor's mansion for 25 years, until Ryan came along. Rat Blagojevich sworn in yesterday as first Dem Governor since the 1970's.
