I've sort of run out of words to describe the sociopath that is Governor Blagojovich. He is just plain nuts, pure and simple.
With the legal noose tightening around his neck, he decides it's the perfect time to appoint former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to fill Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.
There's a part of me that admires his sheer balls-iness. Blago doesn't march to his own drummer -- he marches to a sound that can only be heard by dogs and aliens from distant planets.
If the Democrats were holding out any hopes that he'd go gentle into that good night, that ain't happening. He's going down like the titanic, and he's going to drag everything and everybody he can get his hands on.
It puts Harry Reid in the awkward spot of having to reject an African-American former state Attorney General with an impeccable reputation -- something that can't be too appetizing. But he doesn't have much choice -- Blago is tainted, and therefore his appointment is tainted, too. Probably not the way Harry Reid wanted to start the New Year.
