Live: Blago’s Statements
Okay, okay- but can ya BLAME me?
Here is the real link to live video feed in Springfield…(12:11 pm EST)
He’s been talking for 5 minutes now.
No notes- completely by the seat his pants, off the cuff- choose your analogy. Alot of pissing and complaining about fairness…
Quote from Blago: “How can you throw a governor out of office without any PROOF?”
I’m reminded of Sarah Palin’s statements, after the Branchflower “Troopergate” report came out, which clearly said she was guilty saying that she was cleared of any wrongdoing.
And… now he’s quoting John Warner, Elizabeth Taylor’s husband! And telling a little story of meeting him!
This guy is even loopier than Palin. Holy fuck.
He’s bouncing back and forth between discussing the articles of impeachment specifically to discussing his governorship as a whole to talking about whatever happens to pop into his head. Healthcare issues for Illinois citizens, vaccines, the flu.
BUT NOT A WORD REGARDING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SENATE SEAT. NOT ONE.
A total disconnect of the charges. He wants to “clear his name” and to be judged by his record- not face the criminal allegations against him.
Another quote: “How is it an impeachable offense to help families afford healthcare?”
