A Children's Treasury Of Endlessly Quotable Quotes From Blagojevich's New Book

News

Book publishing and sociopathy collide in a BIG WAY this morning, as America is treated to its first glimpses ofThe Governor, the upcoming kunstlerroman from foul-mouthed ex-Monkee Rod Blagojevich. There is so much to love about this book already, and it is barely even ghostwritten: "Blagojevich writes that his guiding thought in selecting a new senator was, 'How much do I love the people of Illinois?'" Ooh! Follow-up sub-question: Is it still accurate to call it a "tell-all" if it is all lies?


This book is going to blow the lid off the conspiracy against Blagojevich. Here is some of what we have to look forward to:

  • "[US Attorney Patrick J.] Fitzgerald didn't stop a crime spree. He stopped me from doing a lot of good for a lot of people."
  • "I never intended to sell the Senate seat"
  • "I was merely engaged in the ordinary and routine politicking that frequently accompanies a significant appointment by the governor."
  • "unethical"

Oh sorry. RETROACTIVE SPOILER ALERT: Yeah so what happens in the end—and the beginning and the middle—is that Blagojevich didn't do anything wrong and is, quite frankly, a little upset that anyone would even think he would have. Rod Blagojevich will wait, probably in prison, for his apology from America.

Let's read the Mueller Report!

April 20 will be the 20th anniversary of the massacre at Columbine High School. Mother Jones yesterday published a report on mass shooters (or would-be shooters) who in one way or another mentioned the Columbine murders as something they wanted to emulate, or as a benchmark they hoped to outdo. Since 1999, there have been more than 100 plots or actual attacks influenced by Columbine. MoJo national affairs editor Mark Follman notes,

And those are just the cases for which there is some kind of public record: In talking with law enforcement and mental health sources who work to prevent such attacks, I've learned of dozens more Columbine-influenced threats that never made the news.
