Is Blagojevich Slavic for "Tool?"
Imagine the hairstyle of Moe and the intellect of Curly. All you need is Larry on the violin as he whines "what did I do?" over and over again!
Blagojevich Speaks at Trial: I 'Followed Every Law'
A WALL STREET JOURNAL NEWS ROUNDUP
SPRINGFIELD, Ill.—"I have done absolutely nothing wrong," Gov. Rod Blagojevich told state senators as he began his closing statement in his impeachment trial Thursday.
The embattled Democrat said he had "followed every law," as he began a last-ditch attempt to hold on to his job.
After avoiding the trial, Gov. Blagojevich reversed course Wednesday and asked to make a closing argument, after days of boycotting the proceedings that could remove him from office, calling them biased and unconstitutional.
He told senators Thursday that he had come to speak at the Senate trial because citizens said he should.
The governor repeated his frequent complaint that he wasn't allowed to call witnesses who would have defended him against the criminal charges at the heart of the impeachment case.
Mr. Blagojevich did acknowledge that the truth of his actions might not be flattering in some cases. He referred to taped conversations played earlier in the Senate trial. The tapes appeared to show Blagojevich linking legislation to campaign contributions.
He said that's something "all of us in politics do."
"There was never a conversation where I intended to break a law," he said.
The Senate is scheduled to vote Thursday afternoon on whether to convict Blagojevich and remove him. Mr. Blagojevich also said throwing him out of office would set a dangerous precedent.
The Bitter American is incredulous:
He blames "the sensationalism of the media" for his woes, but he whored himself in front of every network in NY while his fellow Illini prosecuted him!
