Anyone Catch that Blago Speech Today? Bizarre.

The governor wasn't exactly Perry Mason there in his closing arguments this morning before the Illinois Senate.

Unfortunately, I could only catch bits and pieces of the speech on KTRS (550 AM), which annoyingly kept cutting to commercials every five minutes, but what I did hear wasn't good.

The governor's argument that White House chief-of-staff Rahm Emanual and even President Barack Obama should also lose their jobs seemed a tadbit strange. 

So, too, was that whiny talk about how he fought to provide flu vaccines for the citizens of Illinois. What does that have to do with Blagojevich allegedly trying to sell Obama's senate seat?

I also couldn't follow that story he relayed on a poor mother In Chicago who has to take the subway to work each day. Sorry, governor, but who the hell cares?
