Blago Doesn't Give A Damn About Your Polls

We'll hand it to Blago - he doesn't blink in the face of heavy criticism. When asked to respond to yesterday's Trib poll that found only 13 percent of those polled approved of the job he's doing, the Governor simply responded that if he were up for reelection on November 4th, he'd "win by 10 points or better." Sure, if his opponent were Emperor Palpatine, and even then we still think it'd be closer. Blago also said he didn't think he's done anything to garner such low ratings. Nope, nothing at all.
