BLAGO’S NEXT MOVES: LETTERMAN, WRESTLING
So if you didn’t know, Rod Blagojevich will be on the David Letterman show tonight. There are some uppity people asking why anyone would want to watch that. It’s simple. If Letterman goes after him like he has done with Paris Hilton, Harvey Pekar, Bill O’ Reilly or any other number of guests, it will be absolutely hilarious.
I should care that he was the governor of my state? That somehow this scandal makes me look bad as an Illinoisan? That’s just dumb. Big deal. Every state has corrupt politicians. So we have more. Hooray. The Dish DVR is set. Call me any name in the book–I can’t wait to watch the show and see the banter between Blago and Letterman. If I’m Letterman the first thing I say after he takes a seat is, “Hey, your hair looks great tonight!”
What’s next for Blago after visiting with Dave? Could he pull a reverse-Ventura? Jesse Ventura went from wrestling to become a governor. Sporting News says maybe Blago can go from governor to TNA wrestling. Kurt Angle has extended his invitation:
“He’s innocent until proven guilty,” Angle said. “As the leader of the Main Event Mafia, I am a huge fan of the Illinois style of politics. As such, Governor Blagojevich is welcome to join me and the entire Main Event Mafia at any and all TNA events in the future, and certainly is welcome to sell his seat with us should he choose not to accept our generous offer.”
I think all this is great. Why shouldn’t we derive a little pleasure from having a corrupt governor. Can’t we all use a little more funny these days?
