Random: The Political and Moral Idiocy of Governor Blagojevich
And in striking contrast to this journal's recent idle hope for people of great moral worth to be in positions of political influence, we have the absurd escapades of Illinois Governor Blagojevich, now appearing in a news outlet near you. My favourite sentence highlighting a depth of moral idiocy that I can scarcely imagine to be non-fiction is:
The affidavit said Blagojevich expressed frustration at being "stuck" as governor and that he would have access to greater resources if he were indicted while in the U.S. Senate than while sitting as governor.
I stand amazed that there really are people like this, who would express such things out loud, and not be abandoned by everyone around them. I clearly hang out in the wrong crowds.
