WASHINGTON--Rod Blagojevich makes a cameo in a hilarious Daily Show video on a faux hunt for the Wisconsin Democratic state lawmakers hiding out over the Illinois border near Rockford--to deny Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker a vote on a bill to strip union collective bargaining rights. Blagojevich faces an April re-trial on federal corruption charges. Though the piece is funny, Blagojevich uses the schtick to make a point on workers rights to organize--and perhaps then to justify taking part in a stunt that calls him a former "warlord" and mocks his famous phrase, "f------ golden."
