The Frog and I have been watching The Wire this past year and we both agree it is some seriously brilliant television. What we didn’t realize is how prescient it truly was. In it a dirty politician finesses his way out of corruption charges using nothing but his silver tongue. Couldn’t really happen, right? Unless you’re Rod Blagojevich. The ex-Illinois governor’s trial ended in a deadlock on 23 counts and conviction on just one…lying to federal agents. So the only thing he’s guilty of is lying about not lying? Only in America people, only in America.
