Blago: As Senator, I Would Have Hunted bin Laden Myself
Somehow, former Gov. Rod Balgojevich continues to stay in the news. This, though… this may take the cake when it come sheer Blago absurdity:
During his fifth day on the witness stand, even Rod Blagojevich managed to startle observers with a new one:
If he had appointed himself to the U.S. Senate seat in 2008, he would have traveled to Afghanistan to try to hunt down one Osama bin Laden.
His lawyer, Aaron Goldstein, asked if Blagojevich talked about appointing himself to the Senate “in exchange for going to Afghanistan and hunting down Osama bin Laden.”
“Yes,” A straight-faced Blagojevich replied, bringing yet another prosecution objection, hushed snickers and head-scratching in the courtroom.
The man’s crazy. Batshiz. Loopy. Off his rocker.
