A Blaze of Glory

Friday, January 30, 2009

I had a good chat today at lunch with one of my new co-workers.   The subject was a certain former governor of Illinois and I had to admit something.  

That was unbelievable television.

I can't recall seeing a guy so guilty go down swinging so hard.  Unreal.  

That was going out in an absolute, both guns firing blaze of glory.  The speech, the news interview, the kids he was trying to get in the shot (didn't one of them ask him if he play basketball with him?), the message in spanish...  

Holy shit.  There was just so much going on there.

Blagojevich is on a whole 'nother level of slimeball politician.   But, I can't lie, much like a train wreck, I couldn't take my eyes away from the whole thing.
