What else can be said about Blago? No matter that his speech yesterday was a passionate defense that had me thinking, for just a moment, that maybe he had a point (he does have a point, it’s just that the entirety of his case overwhelms it). Unfortunately for him, he is not a man that inspires much in the way of sympathy. And so there he goes.
It does make me wonder how Bush’s abuse of power of the past eight years went without investigation or much of a whisper from his own party. In that sense it is a relief to see Democrats allowing and following through with this impeachment, citing ethics over party loyalty. It’s everything that was missing from the Republican party over the past eight years. Right-wingers don’t play it like that, so we’re all better off as they flail about out of power.
