Hey Maverick! Where's Goose?

I have completely changed my mind about soon-to-be ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich. Anyone who -- with a straight face -- said he considered appointing Oprah to Barack Obama's open Senate seat is okay in my book. (Hey, Rod, maybe you hadn't heard but Oprah HAS a job. A rather consuming one.)  Her job, however, wasn't the issue.  He wasn't sure Oprah would take his call so he didn't know how he'd get in touch with her.  Note to next governor: We, the people of Illinois, would like to elect someone who tends to have their calls returned by important people.

He went on The View (and every other national program known to man) and said his wife swore like a sailor only because she picked up the bad habit from him, so he takes full responsibility.  Ladies, chivalry is not dead!

I have a new theory on G-Rod. He is actually an actor from the Second City comedy troupe and as a lark ran for governor just to get material for his act.  Well, lo and behold, the dumb ass people of Illinois (no offense) voted -- and re-elected him! -- into office and he went with it. Comedians generally can use an extra $177,000 each year.  His wife and kids are actually stand-ins represented by the William Morris agency. The wife is doing an especially superb job!  She'll probably land in a soap after this gig is up.

G-Rod told Greta Van Susteran, when asked how his life currently was on a scale of 1 to 10, that it was currently a 2.  Then he bumped it up to a 4 because he loves his wife and kids, then reconsidered and knocked it back down to a 3.  Note to next governor: We, the people of Illinois, would like to elect someone whose life is at least a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10.

I'm growing tired of this guy's face (and black bomber jacket circa 1986).  Wake me when it's over.
