Blago Blitz Enters Its Second Week

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Feb 3, 2009 4:20PM

Like your crazy ex-boy/girlfriend or herpes, former governor Rod Blagojevich just won't go away. We already know about his appearance on Letterman tonight, which given Dave's cantankerous manner might be worth watching, but this morning we were dismayed to find Blago ruining our morning again by swinging by the Today Show on NBC. He called the impeachment a "hijacking," kept bitching about the witnesses, claimed he was offered the chance to stay on as an incapacitated governor through 2010, and continued to compare himself to the thousands of Americans who have lost their jobs. So, just like every other damn interview he's done in the last 10 days. Except he quotes Jesus this time.
