Adventures in Blago-sitting: The Blitz Continues

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Jan 27, 2009 3:40PM

Last night, Governor Rod Blagojevich continued his march through the media, appearing on CNN's "Larry King Live" and pontificating about his innocence. If you used our drinking game, then you were probably passed out about 15 minutes in. Blago dropped some great lines, like calling Ed Genson "the F. Lee Bailey of our time" (as a reader pointed out - we thought F. Lee Bailey was the F. Lee Bailey of our time) and getting the same, "if I knew they were taping..." spiel. Perhaps the greatest part of the evening? Watching Blago's reaction to the late night comedy clips (video below), including when SNL's Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers went off on his hair. While he seemed to enjoy Jason Sudeikis' impression, there was something in his eyes when hearing all the hair jokes that almost made you feel a little sorry for him, that the producers were forcing him to watch the world ridicule him. Almost.

If you missed your chance to Booze with Blago, be sure to check him out tonight on Rachel Maddow, but at this point, there's probably nothing new to hear. If you're interested in checking out the entire interview, it's up on YouTube in eight parts, but you're not really missing much. Well, except for him being over-protective about his hair.
