Predictably, former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich treated his conviction Tuesday on 1 of 24 criminals counts as 100 percent proof of his innocence. Yet the outcome was enough for the Chicago Tribune to headline an editorial “Rod Blagojevich, felon,” and look forward to a new trial on the counts that confounded the jury. Meanwhile, a Washington Post blog asked readers to vote for their favorite Blagojevich quote. Among the nominees:
“I’ve got this thing and it’s f—-ing golden, and I’m just not giving it up for f—-ing nothing. I’m not gonna do it.”
“You understand, it’s very important for me to make a lot of money. I need independence. I need freedom.”
“I’m blacker than Barack Obama.”
