Sympathy for the Hairball

I recently posted on Chicago Mom's Blog wondering where the parents of Rod and Rob Blagojevich went wrong. In every written work about the family, they sound like your typical hardworking immigrants, and they obviously inspired their kids to work hard and reach for greatness. Our ex-governor and still-embarrassment, Rod Blagojevich, worked his way through college and law school.
Then Tribune columnist Mary Schmich wrote a column about the brotherly loyalty Rob -- who has never been in trouble before -- showed when he came to Rod's aid and got himself embroiled in this scandal.
Dammit Mary, quit trying to make me have empathy for a Blagojevich! That's about one step away from Sympathy for the Devil.
