The Blagojevich family has finally proven they have no decency or shame. They have finally sunk to the bottom of the barrel, amongst the foul dregs. The brought their well and expensively dressed and accessorized children to court yesterday, pimping them in front of the jury.
There had to be an intimidation effect on the prosecution. Just imagine if the prosecution dramatically and passionately bashed, slammed, and denigrated Blago as a crook, liar, and thief. Imagine a whining seven year old breaking down in tears, bawling out “stop being mean to my daddy”. The fourteen year old running from the court room in tears, clutching her pink Coach purse. Heels clacking in the floor. Oh, the drama the jury could have seen- and felt. The jury would have needed boxes of tissue for the tears.
Rod and Patti Blagojevich would do anything and use anyone- including their own children- to get him off the hook. They would pander to emotions if it would do some good, tear at the heart strings. If it takes psychologically abusing their children, so what? It is all about Rod. After Rod, everyone else comes first.
This was a shameless, cruel, shrewd, and calculated move on Blagojevich’s part. Trying to portray himself as the doting, loving, daddy to two little princesses. The fawning mother hugging the youngest. The hard nosed political aunt brandishing a sippy cup, in case it was needed by the seven year old.
Hopefully, the jurors are smart enough to ignore and see through this low life facade. Hopefully they can make an informed decision on the facts and the applicable law. What ever the outcome of this case, one thing will stand out. It has been the best soap opera or reality show this year. There should be some type of award created, some gold or crystal statue. Maybe the Flying Fickle Finger of Fate Award. Rod andPatti can share the category as best performance by lowlifes.
