Soon to be impeached Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, in a press conference today, decided to read us some poetry.
It was also beyond the Great Unknown in terms of bizarre. REALLY BIZARRE...possibly the weirdest press conference I've ever witnessed from a politician.
The press conference was his "artful reaction" to the Illinois State House of Representatives voting in favor of articles of impeachment with respect to a mounting case of evidence that he tried to sell Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat following the election last Nov. 4.
The guy was all over the map. He lined up a group of citizens (apparently from Illinios and affected by health care issues - I don't want to imagine how that group was assembled) and pontificated about health care pitfalls on the part of the State House.
I even heard him mutter the word "pap smear" in the press conference. Uhh, yeah.
Some of the talking heads think he's a political mastermind at messing with the political landscape right now...personally, I think he's simply delusional.
I don't believe this fella is working with a full deck. In any event, it should be obvious that the sooner this character is kicked out of office, the better.
