I literally laughed out loud as I read this on a crowded airplane early this morning:

Mr. Blagojevich, 52, rarely turns up for work at his official state office in Chicago, former employees say, is unapologetically late to almost everything, and can treat employees with disdain, cursing and erupting in fury for failings as mundane as neglecting to have at hand at all times his preferred black Paul Mitchell hairbrush. He calls the brush “the football,” an allusion to the “nuclear football,” or the bomb codes never to be out of reach of a president.

    I heard that Lt. Governor Lee Fisher has a “sitting pillow” that he recently upbraided the staff about for not having it at the ready.

    Wonder what he calls his pillow?

    Blagojevich’s arrest and the corruption charges highlight the need for change in laws and procedures to make sure this does not occur ever again. Does it sound strange that the previous Illinois governor also had issues with honesty and bribery? I don’t think this problem only exists in the state of Illinois, but the voters, the public – need more control and tougher watchdog to make sure this will never happen again. What’s even more disturbing is Blago’s insistence that he has done nothing wrong and that he is completely innocent. Wonder what drug is this man smoking? The best for Mr. Blago would be to apologize to the voters and step aside.
