What will Blagojevich Do?

From Chuck Goudie's: How Blago's 'lynching' could turn into scene from 'Animal House'
When the state Senate gavels open its impeachment trial, our governor ought to keep in mind the most applicable quote from Eric Stratton in the movie:

"I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part."
I don't doubt he will, and his goal will be to make the Illinois Senate look like fools (check Legal Insurrection's Blagojevich Is Good At Making Others Look Bad) Don't underestimate the Guv.

Also... This comment from Pat Collin's (member of Quinn's Illinois Reform Commission)is a red flag
More fundamental than laws, though, is trying to create an attitude shift in politicians and the people who elect them, he said.
I hope the commission sticks with nuts-and-blots geek issues on openess and procurement reform, and leaves the political transformation to politicans. They'll lose any creditability if they start getting on soapboxes lecturing voters about attitudes.
