Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich views what is occurring to him like he is a fish in a fishbowl. In his interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday today (8-22-10), he makes rational and intelligent folks puke—and this is being said from someone who is not even a Republican! Our legal system needs to ferret out such scum, though we know that if history is any guide, long after we are all gone, such corruption will not disappear. It is our hope, though, that with today’s (legal) efforts, the likelihood that there will be more of the Blagojevichs of the world will diminish greatly.
