While the jurors sitting through hours of testimony might disagree, the past few weeks of the Rod Blagojevich corruption trial have been pretty amusing for the rest of us.
We may be missing out on the ex gov's weird gestures that earned him a tongue lashing from Judge James Zagel, but we have been able to hear the wiretapped conversations that made this trial so much more "golden" than other political corruption trials. (See, the bad pun potential is endless.)
Blagojevich could take the stand in his own defense as soon as next week, surely providing more amazing quotes. For now, though, the crew at the State Journal-Register in Springfield are providing readers with free Blagojevich ringtones.
Some of our faves?
"I've got this thing and it's (expletive) golden. And I'm just not giving it up for (expletive) nothing."
"I (expletive) busted my (expletive) and (expletive) people off and gave your grandmother a free (expletive) ride on a bus. Okay? I gave your (expletive) baby a chance to have health care."
And the very best...
"Only thirteen percent of you all out there think I'm doing a good job. So (expletive) all of you."
