Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is a lot of things, but TV superstar is not one of them. However, the man seems to be checking his rating on the blockbusterocity scale by making the rounds on the TV circuit.
Gov. Blagojevich, who is currently under the process of being impeached, yesterday appeared on Good Morning America, The View, and Larry King Live to plead his case to the public. Blagojevich made a claim that was full of preposterousocity claiming that he was not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing. No no, you’re eyes are fine, you read that right, the man who attempted to sell the Senate seat of Barack Obama proclaimed his innocence. Yeah, I know, but hold on, it takes another step toward loony land.
The major gearbox known as Gov. Blagojevich went on and grabbed the proverbial hammer, then proceeded to nail his own coffin shut. Put all beverages and food down, as you are about to either laugh hysterically or scream out in disgust and anger. Blagojevich actually compared himself and his situation to the likes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela, and Mahatma Gandhi. Yeah. That actually happened. I KNOW! What a dorkchop he is!
Blagojevich claims that other politicians who plan to raise taxes in Illinois are persecuting him. He went on to proclaim that he was simply trying to find the best possible replacement for Obama. Blagojevich said that one of his top considerations for the senate seat was Oprah Winfrey, who said she had no idea of her name even being in the running. In addition, Oprah said that she would have turned down the offer anyway.
The man who Blagojevich did choose to replace Obama in the senate was Roland Burris, the former Illinois Attorney General.
Blagojevich’s impeachment trial went under way on Monday and he has chosen to not be present at the trial proceedings. Having already been impeached earlier this month by the House of Representatives, Blagojevich still refuses to resign gracefully because he does not want to disgrace his children. HOLY JURASSIC PARK!!! We have officially discovered a live Reekasaurus Rex!
After attempting to sell Barack Obama’s old senate seat, Blagojevich is now under trial and doing exactly what he said he didn’t want to do; he is being a disgrace.
