First there was chutzpah. Then there was Bill Clinton. Now there's Blago, the victim of a plot to raise taxes. Anything but that!
Well, there is something that would offend his Democrat buddies more. He could be honest.
I figured Blago was looking for a new pet cause now that he's stuck Roland Burris to Harry Reid and the Senate (nothing against Burris - based on what I know now he's as tolerable as an IL Dem can be). No doubt Blago noticed the machinations of the last prosecuted (and preceding) governor of IL, George Ryan, who suddenly discovered Injustice! on IL's death row once he needed some good PR.
