Blago Pleads "Rambling Crazy Monologue" To Criminal Charges

"Black care never catches a rider whose pace is fast enough," Rod Blagojevich said to assembled reporters outside a Chicago courthouse today. That means he pleaded not guilty.

Former Illinois Governor Blago was charged with 16 federal criminal counts because he kept asking for money in exchange for things, like appointing a Senator.

The case won't go to trial for months still, so there is plenty of crazy left to cherish while we wait. One of Blago's ex-chiefs of staff is cooperating with prosecutors! His brother's on trial too! Whee!
