Illinois Rep. John Fritchey blogs that Blagojevich's statements to media are straight out of the "'How Not to Build Support' playbook." Yes, exactly!
P.S. ... The assumption behind the Blagojevich-wants-GRT-to-fail theory is that the governor thinks he benefits politically if he can blame the bill's failure on the legislature. With zero support from anyone, that becomes quite a difficult trick to pull off. And yet the governor shows no sign of changing course. Does this undermine the kabuki theory or does it just indicate the depths of Blago's delusions? You decide!
