I used to work for a Congressman and I have to tell you that this man is an embarassment. I never encountered any Congressmen as stupid as him. Most of the ones I knew were successful business men. They could not have built the businesses they did and be that stupid!
I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt b/c I sometimes think Politicians get a bad rap (I know some deserve it) and I try to keep an open mind. After all - it takes a huge toll on your personal life to serve as a politician. But Blagojevich really proved to be an idiot.
