One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest

I'm no psychiatrist or psychologist but I think I can safely see what "crazy" looks like, and I look no further than soon-to-be ousted Illinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich (Blago).

How do you explain who has been found on tape for trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat with all kinds of expletives only to go around any media outlet who will allow him to say all some of the most damning things that make him look really bad even for his lead defense attorney (who defended R. Kelly) to resign?

You can't explain it but your eyes are glued to the TV as if watching a trainwreck that's left you spellbound and dumbfounded at the same time. Blago actually likened himself to Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi and disciples in the Bible being persecuted. Hmmm, the disciples in the Bible were persecuted for what's right and just. The same goes for MLK and Gandhi. Blago on the other hand, is not being indicted for what he did, in his words as "mostly right." But the few things THAT WERE ILLEGAL AND UNETHICAL.

And the nerve of this guy to say he was considering Oprah Winfrey to the senate seat. How many black people will he throw under the bus. Then Oprah had to call into her friend's radio show to state her piece - she had no clue what Blago was talking about.

I wish the Media would stop attaching a microphone to this guy. But I know that will be an unfulfilled wish especially when the media's mantra is: "If it bleeds, it leads." This guy keeps bleeding scum and like flies the media can't help but buzz around the subject.
