Blagojevich. Don't hate the playa, hate the game

Maybe  Lex Luthor or Dr. Doom are more accomplished evil geniuses, maybe, but our Guv is not to be underestimated.   After bowing out of the J'accuse portion of his impeachment trial  and presumably  having a  fit of remorse he's decided he'd like to humbly  speak on his own Capra-esque behalf. And of course they'll have to let him.  After a self serving national media blitz where he did a surprisingly good job of making his case and generally upstaging his trial he's going to get another bite at the apple in a heavily convered 90 minute monologue without getting bogged down in that awkward having to 'splain hisself.  As I don't look for a confession I have to admit; this is pure brilliance.

He'll be impeached but that's not his concern.  Given how uncharacteristically clumsy Fitzgerald has been in rolling out this complaint and how deftly Blago has responded I'd say that he's got at least a %50 chance of avoiding jail.  At least.
