Blagojevich Does Letterman

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

Last night, we gave you a sneak peek at former governor Rod Blagojevich's appearance on David Letterman's show. Now that we've seen the whole thing, we know this much: if there is one Blago appearance from his recent media blitz to see, it's this one (or maybe Rachel Maddow). We thought the cantankerous Letterman would be an excellent foil for His Hairness and, indeed, we were right. Not taking any of Blago's crap, Letterman's frustrated exasperation with Blago early on mirrored our own and, for once, it was worth sitting through another Blagojevich appearance. We knew it was going to be good when the band played Sinatra's "My Way" for Blago's introduction. Even though Letterman softened on Blago as the interview wore on, it was still worth it to watch Blago squirm.
