I gotta hand it to that lawyer Blagojevich hired. He's done an awesome job of turning this from a routine Illinois housecleaning to a real fight. And out of sheer spite, Blagojevich himself has managed to put the US senate in the messy position of having to reject a credible (thus far) black candidate for senator on the basis of who nominated him, thus making them look petty, at best. Fun, fun, fun.
Messy, morally (or at least ethically) curious, and dramatic, as politics Chicago-style tends to be.
