What Makes Blago Tick

I posted this on my blog and then decided Red Staters might enjoy it:

There’s a famous story about three men sitting outside a country store playing cards. This guy runs up to them and says, “Hey, the world’s coming to an end!”

The first card player says, “Well, I best go to Church and pray.”

The second one says, “Well, hell, I’m gonna go and buy me a case of Bud.”

The third one says, “Well, I’m gonna finish the game.”

Rod Blagojevich’s political world is coming to an end. But you know what? He’s finishing the game that he started. He knows he’s made mistakes. But he can’t publicly admit to them. His enemies would use it against him.

Sure, the world might end. If so, not much the three guys can do about it. But what if it doesn’t? The calm card player will win the game.

I have a feeling we haven’t heard the last of Blagojevich. And for now, he’s serving a useful purpose for us Republicans. He’s making the Democrats look stupid.

The game’s not over for the Republicans either. What are we supposed to do? Convert? Give up politics? Hell, no. We shall finish the game.
