Why is anyone still taking the proposed sell-off of the state lottery as anything other than a political ploy by Governor Blagojevich? I hope Dick Durbin’s comments in this SJ-R article were a response to a direct question about the "plan", because I hate to think he takes the idea seriously enough to bring it up on his own. Surely Durbin doesn’t believe the sell off is really going to happen or was ever intended to happen. Still, I guess he has to say something if asked, no matter how hypothetical the scenario.
Poor Dick Durbin. He’s faced with the lottery political stunt here at home and the gay marriage/flag burning political stunts in Washington. What’s a guy got to do to get to some serious governing?
