From Politico columnist Roger Simon’s op-ed (headline: “Another Illinois Governor Goes to Jail”) in today’s Wall Street Journal:
“You could cut off [Rod Blagojevich's] head and he wouldn’t be any dumber,” a Chicago insider tells me.
But Blago might be getting smarter:
“I frankly am stunned,” Blagojevich told the media throng after his conviction. That kind of stuff was a crime? Since when? Still, he was chastened. “Among the many lessons I’ve learned from this whole experience is to try to speak a little bit less,” he said.
That should certainly help.
