Blago Jury Spares the Rod

“A federal jury today convicted former Gov. Rod Blagojevich of one count against him: lying to the FBI. The jury was deadlocked on the other 23 counts against the former governor, and all four counts against his brother.” [Chicago Tribune]


Everybody talks like that in Chicago. I never understood the charges.

I know one Stinquer who’s going to be happy about this…

Fitzgerald said he’ll retry both of them.

Man, I’ll tell you what — the postgame show with Blago, Sam Adam Jr. and Sam Adam Sr. was worth the price of admission. I was listening on the radio, and sweat from their foreheads dripped through my speakers. The hate for Fitz was just overwhelming, and the repeated references to kids dying on the streets of Chicago were the definition of overwrought.

All-time classic rants. Youtube it or seek out the local teevee coverage — you will NOT be disappointed.
