Blagojevich speaks on possible gag order, Patti's hair

Reporting with Natasha Korecki

Rod Blagojevich addressed a small crowd outside the courtroom during the lunch break. The first topic -- his wife's new haircut.

"It's beautiful. I say that to her every day -- and I'm not just saying that because she's testifying," he said, laughing. He confirmed that he got a trim, too.

Blagojevich also spoke about a possible gag order and said his lawyers are on the side of the First Amendment.

"One of the things we're fighting for is the First Amendment. That's worth fighting for and that's worth dying for, and that's what we're trying to do," he said.

Then Blagojevich came back to reporters to finish his sentence and make sure everyone got this: "The right of free speech, one of the cornerstones of America."

He was eventually warned by a deputy marshal to stop speaking.

So Patti finally fixed herself up. About time. Someone needs to tell city "sophistocates" that black every day in a cliche. I didn't think anyone could wear black every day for as long as Mrs. B.did. The blue jacket and white slacks looked much better.

Patty looks pretty hot with her new hairdo. She might have some money coming in a media job after Blago gets sent up the river by the feds.

Hey Natasha, are they still using an overflow courtroom? Thinking about heading down there tomorrow, and would like to know if there's any chance of getting in the main room...
