From the “You could have it worse” category:
The trial of disgraced former Illinois Governor, and reality TV “star” Rod Blagojevich begins this week. And some of his lawyers aren’t exactly enamored with the thought of “Blago” taking the witness stand in his defense. The defense team is resigned to the fact that they won’t be able to quiet their client.
“He’s a celebrity idiot, but he is a celebrity,”attorney Sam Adam Jr. was quoted as saying of his client in Chicago Magazine. “He’s truly funny — totally self-absorbed but truly funny. He’s also one of the most insecure people I’ve ever met. It’s such a strange dynamic.”
Sam Adams (that can’t be his real name by the way) may have a point.
The former Governor has called a press conference to call out the prosecuting attorney and question his manhood and defense attorneys also tried unsuccessfully to have President Barack Obama testify in court. Attorneys like to get together for a beer now and then and complain about how clueless some of their clients are. And apparently some like to have that conversation in public on the eve of the trial.
