Two Guys, Opposite Directions

This anecdote, from David Mendell's excellent article about the former governor of Illinois, in whose trial the jury is still deliberating, actually makes me like the guy:

Leaving his radio show the next weekend, Blagojevich was greeted in the lobby by an autograph-seeker, a deeply tanned man wearing lipstick, a strawberry-blond wig, and a dress. The cross-dresser handed Blagojevich a photograph to sign: a picture of Blagojevich and Obama sitting together at a Democratic Party event several years earlier. He scrawled in black cursive, "Here are two guys whose careers have gone in opposite directions. Best, Rod Blagojevich."
