Channeling Theodore Seuss Geisel

Rod Blagojevich is upset that, because he was impeached for corruption, he can not stand for any elected position in Illinois, so he filed suit.

The court was unamused, and quoted Dr. Seuss in the ruling dismissing the suit:

As a general rule, it’s never good when a federal judge feels compelled to address your case with a quote from Dr. Seuss.

But that’s exactly what happened Thursday to disgraced former Gov. Rod Blagojevich, whose lawsuit challenging the state resolution prohibiting him from running for any state or local office in Illinois was excoriated by a judge as a publicity stunt and an “Issue-Spotting Wonderland.”

In dismissing Blagojevich’s 2021 suit, U.S. District Judge Steven Seeger accused the former governor of using the federal courthouse as a megaphone in an ill-advised attempt to get back in the political game following the commutation of his 14-year prison sentence by then-President Donald Trump.

He quoted from Dr. Seuss’ 1972 book “Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!” which reads: “The time has come. The time is now. Just Go. Go. GO! I don’t care how. You can go by foot. You can go by cow. Marvin K. Mooney, will you please go now!””

I'm wondering what children's book should be quoted in the plethora of cases against Donald Trump.
