Today is Rod Blagojevich’s birthday. My bet is that he is not too interested in his cake.
There isn’t much I can add to this unbelievable story. I wouldn’t even mention it, except for the fact that I know someone who worked on Blagojevich’s first run for Governor back in 2002.
I keep remembering how proud he was to be working for Blagojevich, someone who represented a fresh start in Illinois politics. He was impressed with Blagojevich personally and professionally.
Then, Rod became Governor and almost immediately became worse than same old same old.
For my friend, yesterday’s adventure must have been a particularly annoying slap in the face.
