Just to ClarifyIt seems some including the governor himself have a skewed perception of "the rules" in the current impeachment proceedings. Rod Blagojevich has recently appeared on Good Morning America, The View, and in an interview with Geraldo Rivera touting how unfair this whole thing has become. He says, "They have denied me my right to call witnesses."
Alright, Blago, you're the lawyer. Let me just read from the rulebook.
If a witness is denied, it is denied to both sides, not just the defense. The governor chose not to involve himself in these proceedings. It is for this reason only that he cannot call witnesses, not because the legislators in Springfield denied him of any rights.
Oh, and ask him again for his Nixon impersonation, it's priceless!
