More Good Stuff From Rachel Maddow

Is Rod Blagejevich batshit crazy?

Great clip, Utah: Maddow rocks. Super, red-hot crazy, unbelievable freak show political issue happening...

Clip quote: He's utterly mad.

But what kind of "mad?" Blagojevich can't be bipolar (where's Dorothy Parker and Edgar Allan Poe?): He's not smart or savvy enough.

Sociopath? No, that would be Chimpy, Cheney, and Rummy. A little bit delusional? [Maddow]. Yes, quite possibly. I guess when he's in court, he could use an insanity defense...

Great quote from the Washington Times Mental health? Whatever happened to stupid? Can't people be stupid anymore?

LMAO. This post made my day.

After watching his "press conference" today, I say the best defense is to stay with the Stupid one. He seems like the stupid son of a crime boss, who has stepped in it big time.

The guy will stop at nothing to save his slimy ass, including hurting President Obama. He is nuts but sadly I believe him to be one of many.

You're absolutely right, BB. Hmmm... maybe delusional narcissist works?

Obviously there is something "off" ... actually VERY off about him.

He's a guy who really came from NOWHERE ... both his parents were immigrants from Serbia. His father worked in a steel mill. He was sent to a "technical" high school (read ... trade school) and ended up with a college and a law degree.

I wonder if he had gone to Princeton or Harvard and came out speaking as well as the Clintons or Obama's, or, even Rhodes Scholar Rachel Maddow, people would be villifying him like this, or just saying he's a wacky rich guy like Bernie Madoff, who, in the end, or at least in my humble opinion, is the FAR, FAR worse criminal. But hey, Bernie's getting special protection during his house arrest on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending him. I'm just saying that I'm sensing an ugly elitist thing going on here.

Which, to be honest, is pissing me off than this punk guy's crimes.

The crimes committed by the leaders of financial institutions and the government that refused to regulate them are what should be in the news EVERY.SINGLE.MINUTE, not a petty gangster like Rod Blagojevich. He'll get his due punishment in time --- it has been in the works for a long time.

But in the meantime, let's get our priorities straight.

he's a five ball short of a rack, the elevator doesn't go to the top, not the sharpest knife in the drawer, and oh yes...he's batshit crazy..
