Is he 'cuckoo'? Or is he banking on constituents (and potential jury members) who are just that gullible? I don't think so.

Yes, he's proclaiming utter innocence and persecution, and for some, his guileless demeanor may be convincing. But before you step through Rod's looking glass, take another good, long look at this.
