Prosecutors question Blago about convicted fundraiser Rezko

Like I said already I haven't really paid attention to our Ousted governor's retrial since it commenced. I just got to say this part of the trial which was before federal prosecutors cross-examined Blago was just bizzarre:
Defense lawyers are trying to thread a needle in their questioning of Rod Blagojevich, portraying him as at times extremely shrewd and at other times a loose cannon when plotting strategy to appoint a successor to Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate.

“Did you discuss the idea of appointing yourself (to the Senate) and going to Afghanistan to hunt down Osama Bin Laden?” Blagojevich was asked by his attorney, Aaron Goldstein.

Blagojevich managed to answer yes before prosecutors could object and U.S. District Judge James Zagel sustained the objection. But the point was made for jurors: Blagojevich often rambled about ridiculous things when discussing the Senate vacancy.
Well that's what I wanted to get at in this post. As far as reading what happened at Federal Court in downtown Chicago, I need some time to digest this looooong report from the Tribune!
