Blago Invokes Bin Laden, Finally Throws Public a Bone in Second Trial

The re-trial of ousted Illinois Governor has for the most part, been a rather ponderous exercise. The prosecution didn't play those entertaining recordings of Rod Blagojevich this time around and the media has basically ignored the proceedings. By the time Blago's defense started, the trial had the wrong kind of media inertia going. The longer the trial garnered no interest, the more difficult it would be to to generate. Even taking the stand himself created virtually no interest.

There may be faint signs of life after Blago's fifth day of testimony, during which he said that one of the reasons he considered appointing himself to Obama's Senate seat was so he could get Osama bin Laden:

Via Daily Caller:
Rod Blagojevich tells jurors he discussed the possibility of appointing himself to the U.S. Senate in 2008 so he could hunt down then-al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
If Blago has any chance of getting the media to take notice, he's going to have to start delivering more nuggets like that.
