Rod Blagojevich asked this question at his impeachment trial today.
The answer: Just watch.
The man has refused to mount any defense for his conduct prior to deigning to make a speech today. Instead of complying with the rules he’s mounted a media offensive and used his mouth to make things worse.
He doesn’t seem to understand that this isn’t a criminal trial and he isn’t Martin Luther King, Jr. Mahatma Ghandi or Nelson Mandela. They weren’t corrupt egomaniacs.
Just watch Rod, just watch.
