Free Blago

I applaud Chicago governor Blago for refusing to step down amid calls for his head. This is an entertaining spectacle, and an endearingly impressive display of brass tacks. He reminds me of a WWF* villain, standing on the turnbuckle, jeering on the crowd, readying to bust the ref over the head with a folding chair.

I'm of the opinion that one should rarely quit a job, least of all when others without the power to fire you are calling for you to step down. If they want Blago they've got to come and get him. No retreat, no surrender. Fight on, your corrupt, fun-to-read-about egotistical freak.

*WWF in this case of course stands for the official trademark holder, the World Wildlife Fund. And the greatest WWF villain, incidentally, was always the dingo.
