The Blago Trial

I love the way John Kass describes Blago's performance on the witness stand yesterday.

Rod filled the jury with stories involving emotion, about his feelings and his fears. He was the star of his own Lifetime movie. He explained that he's ashamed of his narcissism. He reveled in his childhood heartbreaks. He described how self-conscious he was as a young man when he realized — all clad in polyester and leather at Northwestern University — that he didn't have the right clothes.

"As I got older," he said wistfully, "I started wearing less polyester."
I wish it was televised. I would have watched that.
