Blago's "I've gone nuts" world tour

I know Governor Blagojovich is a nutjob, and belongs in a straight jacket and rubber room ... but I have to confess to sort of liking his brand of nuttiness.

I mean, I know he'll be impeached, and I know he's going to the pokey for a long, long time.  But at least he has the sac to go down in flames with his insane media tour.

Blago is innocent.  And if he could just call Emanuel, Axelrod, Jarrett and Jesse Jackson Jr as witnesses, he could prove it.  He's also heroic like Ghandi and Nelson Mandela.  And Saintly like Mother Theresa. 

At least the guy is going down in a blaze of glory, to quote that noted political philosopher Jon Bon Jovi.  What does he have to lose? It's not like he'll expose himself to be a total wack job or something.  Might as well go on a final "crazy" world tour before he's officially booted from office. 

I say: hairhats off to Blago.  Well played.

This is a classic flameout. I don't know if Blago is a genuine screwball or smarter than all of us and just boosting his the future sales of his autobiography, but I'm sure enjoying the ride.
