There once was a young boxer named Rod, blessed with luscious hair and a reckless disregard for consequences. Those stately qualities helped him land gubernatorial honors in the great state of Illinois, where he upheld the office's storied criminal history through a number of shoddy decisions, including trying to sell the former senate seat of the current president. Rod's poorly covered-up misconduct lost him his job, but landed his wife on reality TV and him in prison. He will come again, however, as early as 2022, to wave to cameras, smile stupidly and, hopefully, become a leftist talking head on Fox News.
