I hated, HATED Illinois' governor until very recently. Blagojevich is a hack who cannot get along with anyone, even the other Democrat hacks who run this sorry excuse for a state. He enjoys the lowest approval rating of any governor in the nation, and typifies the arrogant heavy-handed sleaziness of Chicago politics. He also has worse hair than most local TV weathermen.
At this point, however, Blago seems like a hilariously delusional, scheming, and most importantly foul-mouthed entertainer. Most governors are screw-ups, but at least this screw-up spends most of his time practicing his Elvis impersonations and shaking down donors, instead of raising taxes. I must concede that I share his opinion of our President-elect. The transcripts of his profane tirades are chock full of gems, but pale in comparison to the rants of one of my favorite foul-mouthed historical figures: Richard Nixon.
