Is Blagojevich crazy or simply delusional?

As the Illinois Senate prepares to launch impeachment proceedings against embattled Gov. Rod Blagojevich, the former Congressman has brought his arguable one person circus to New York to make his case as to why lawmakers should not force him from office. And the ongoing saga appeared to get even more strange when Blagojevich told Diane Sawyer this morning he had considered appointing Oprah Winfrey to fill the Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama.

Say what? Blagojevich remains a political pariah in light of allegedly trying to sell Obama's vacant Senate seat, but the story continues to grow even more strange as the governor arguably continues to make himself out to be some sort of populist martyr in a cynical and delusional attempt to save his job. The gig is up Blago... and you are certainly no Gandhi, King or Mandela!
