Governor Blago is one insane MoFo

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.

I'm speechless. It's awful enough that Blago did this, but what's worse is Burris even accepting this appointment under these circumstances. What kind of credibility does he think he'll have in the Senate or with the people of Illinois?

I've lost all faith in any Democrat from Illinois at a time when a gang of them are moving into the White House. What an albatross for the incoming Obama administration.
