Why Blago Lives On

I find it kind of funny how some of the local and Illinois blog/talk show/pundit crowd continues to be so upset by citizen Blagojevich’s appearances in the major media. Really, these appearances are not “news” and aren’t meant to be. They’re entertainment. That’s why Blago will be on Letterman and Larry King tonight, because the guy is a freak show and people will tune in to see it. No one should get frustrated when Blago lies and the interviewer doesn’t bust him on it. That’s not why he’s there. And that’s actually part of his media appeal; everyone knows he’s a scoundrel but it’s entertaining to see him pretend he’s not. He's harmless now. Let him be stupid.

I agree with you in that he is entertaining. My guess his that he will end up having a new career in the entertainment industry.
