How are we scoring this Governor’s scandal?
Here’s my thinking. I’m giving him an 8 for “You want my help selling Wrigley Field? Stop the Trib from writing bad things about me.” It’s audacious, but the hint of insecurity it reveals is unbecoming in a scandal. We’ll call this category “Bullying.”
I’m whole-hog giving him a perfect 10 (shoot, I’d give him an 11, if I could) for his efforts to basically sell Obama’s senatorial seat for his own personal gain. Category: Audacity.
I’m adding five points outside of regular scoring for even contemplating just taking the seat himself.
But I can only give him a 3 out of 10 for “Likelihood of success.”
So out of a possible thirty points, I’m giving him a 26.
What say you?
Three categories–Bullying, Audacity, and Likelihood of Success. Ten points each.
