Contain your surprise as a supreme narcissist vows not to let go of power until the “political lynch mob” persecuting him strings him up and takes it from him forcibly. Good news or bad news, do you think? On the one hand, it means the carnival in Chicago will run for weeks or even months more. On the other hand, if he’s fight fight fighting, then he’s not talk talk talking to prosecutors about what he knows about Illinois machine politics.

Only this much is certain: Every presser by a demoralized pol should include a poem. Exit question: Maybe this one for McCain if/when the next amnesty bill gets beaten back?
