Cowboy

Did you all happen to see Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's press conference yesterday?

He went into this weird diatribe about how he's like a cowboy accused of stealing a horse, and instead of getting a fair trial, the other cowboys say, "Hang him!" There was something else about some of the cowboys being out on the range, while others stay in town, blah blah blah....

WTF?

Even Chicago's Mayor Daley came out and said that their governor is "cuckoo." I have to say, the guy really sounded nutty, and somewhat delusional. I'll give him credit, though, for one thing: the guy's got a set of brass balls! He talked a lot of nonsense about what he can and can't do legally, showing that he has a very tenuous grasp on the legalities of his impeachment and his criminal case. Unfortunately for Roddy-Rod, his chief defense attorney dropped out of the federal case, implying that his client did not listen to his advice. I can't say I'm surprised, because Blagojevich seems to have delusions of grandeur, and apparently believes that he knows better than anyone else what is good for his defense and good for his state.

In the meantime, watch for him Monday on "Good Morning, America" and "The View." That could be interesting.

All the cowboy talk made me chuckle, because it just sounded so crazy. It also made me think of Kid Rock and his song "Cowboy." I'm not putting up all the lyrics, because if you're familiar with Kid at all, you'll know that Kid has a potty mouth!

Cowboy...cowboy...Well I'm packing up my game and I'm a head out west
Where real women come equipped with scripts and fake breasts
Find a nest in the hills, chill like Flynt
Buy an old droptop, find a spot to pimp
Then I'm a Kid Rock it up and down your block
With a bottle of scotch and watch lots of crotch
Buy a yacht with a flag sayin' chillin' the most
Then rock that bitch up and down the coast
Give a toast to the sun, drink with the stars
Get thrown in the mix and tossed out of bars
Zip to Tijuana, I wanna roam
Find motown and tell them fools come back home
Start an escort service, for all the right reasons
And set up shop at the top of Four Seasons
Kid Rock and I'm the real McCoy

And I'm headin' out west sucker...because I wanna be a
Cowboy, baby
With the top let back and the sunshine shining
Cowboy baby
West coast chillin' with the Boone's Wine
I wanna be a cowboy baby
Ridin' at night 'cause I sleep all day
Cowboy baby
I can smell a pig from a mile away

  3. You nailed with saying he a big set of brass ones!!! He is a bit of a loon so I think his interviews will most likely be pretty funny.

    Oh Kid....he's awesome. Doug has all of his cd's so I am quite familiar with all of is music. The Kid Rocks!

  4. He's a kook, but he'll be fun to watch. Any chance for IL to make itself look foolish is fine with me :)

  5. Since Roj is not even planning a defense, I think the nut will be out of a job by this time next week :o)

    Makes me wish for summer, the top down, and the KID blasting :o)

  6. Hi Beth,
    Yes, I caught the Blagojevich "Cowboy Routine" and, in a word, it's horseshit. Something tells me he'll have plenty of time to reflect on his Cowboy Defense ... in the Crowbar Hotel!
    Best,
    Marty

  9. I agree wholeheartedly. Any interviews with him should be the best entertainment on television! Some cowboys out on the range while others stayed in town? Does that really have anything to do with the price of tea in China?

  11. It's amazing sitting back and watching someone with delusions of grandeur. I'm sitting here chuckling thinking, watch this will turn into the movie of the week on tv. (Hugs)Indigo

  12. I saw part of his interview with Cynthia McFadden last night. I'd feel embarrassed for the guy if it weren't for the fact that he truly believes he's going to be vindicated. I didn't hear him give one straight answer to any of her questions, either, but, then, I wasn't expecting him to.
