I love this: Blago citing Doyle as a character witness!

Blagojevich drops Doyle's name at news conference

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich said this afternoon that he hoped to get a chance to tell his side of the story during next week's Illinois Senate impeachment trial.

But Blagojevich, a Democrat, suggested that Gov. Jim Doyle, among others, would be a good witness in his defense.

Blagojevich made the statement this afternoon during a news conference in advance of the impeachment trial scheduled for Monday in the Illinois Senate in Springfield.

The Illinois governor specifically mentioned Doyle and Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Blagojevich said that he and the two governors worked together to ease the importation of prescription drugs from Canada to the Midwest.

In response, Lee Sensenbrenner, a Doyle spokesman, said: "Obviously, the governor has no connection to what's happening in Illinois. We don't have a reaction to his remarks."
Well of course they have no connection. Blago tried to sell his official decisionmaking and got in trouble for it. Doyle never got in trouble.

By the way: somebody who's good at such things should photoshop Blago's hair onto Doyle's head.

UPDATE - That wasn't a shot at Doyle's hair, or lack thereof. His hairstyle is far more attractive than Blago's.
