Patti, Rod Blagojevich on "Celebrity." Who Rod is comparing himself to now

| 2 Comments

My musings about Patti and Rod Blagojevich interviews on NBC's "Today Show" to tout their upcome roles on "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!"

The impeached Illinois governor, facing federal criminal corruption charges is now comparing himself to former presidents.

"I prefer to be compared to people like Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman and others in history, not some of these comparisons," Rod Blagojevich said on "Today."

On an earlier media blitz timed to the start of his impeachment trial, he compared himself to Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi, saying he thought about what they went through and "tried to put some perspective to all this.''

Rod should be comparing himself to those people he is most like. George Ryan, Dan Walker and Otto Kerner. They should dedicate a wing in one of the prisons to Illinois governors

DO YOU GUYS REMEMBER BONNIE AND CLYDE!
WELL THEY ARE BACK!
