Here's what you saw if you were watching Rod Blagojevich's press conference on one of the channels where they weren't interrupting him. It's an amazing defense of... cattle rustling?

Hero journalist Brian Montopoli transcribed the relevant portion of Blago's disquisition on cowboys and Senate rules:

"[Under state Senate rules] if the cowboy charged with stealing a horse was charged with doing that in town, but in fact on the date and time that he apparently stole the horse in town he was on the ranch with six other cowboys, herdin' cattle and ropin' steers, and then he expects that when his day comes to go to court he can bring those six cowboys to say it wasn't him 'cause he wasn't in town he was on the ranch heardin' cattle, even if he could bring those cowboys into say that, under these rules, under 8B, it wouldn't matter."

You got that?
