Blago Bits

In case you missed Governor Blago on his media blitz through the network morning shows today…here are some of the highlights:

On his idea of appointing Oprah to Barack-star’s Senate seat "She seemed to be someone who would help Barack Obama in a significant way become president," ... "She was obviously someone with a much broader bully pulpit than other senators"

"It's a kangaroo court and they've decided, essentially, to do a hanging without even a fair trial," {The Today Show}

{his impeachment} is "all about raising the income tax in Illinois before Memorial Day." {Good Morning America}

Numerous references comparing himself to Jimmy Stewart and Gary Cooper and movie classics like Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, It's A Wonderful Life, Meet John Doe, and Mr. Deeds Goes To Town.

"I didn't do anything wrong," {The View}

"I am not a crook." {Said on The View when the gals tried to get him to do his impression of Richard Nixon}

BTW, do you think Blago looks like Fred Flintstone?
