I’m not even sure how a normal American could comfortably say “I’m blacker than Barack Obama,” but to hear those words come from a seasoned, albeit scandalous politician is mind-boggling. That’s right – he’s done it again – Rod Blagojevich has shown his lack of intelligence one more time, in an interview on WLS Radio in Chicago, he claimed to be speaking “metaphorically” when “expressing frustration that the policies of this new administration still haven’t really been focusing on the great deal of inequities we have in our society.” Sounds like he’s covering his ass in preparation for a prison term.
He does on to say that Obama was elected on hope, and apparently his qualifications, public personality, and ability to hold his own in debate (not to mention Sarah Palin is an idiot) had nothing to do with it.
“I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived,” Blagojevich said. “I saw it all growing up.”
The blubbering idiot continued along while trying – too late – to cement his point, but the damage has been done. I’m not sure when this fools twenty-minutes of fame are going to be up, but I think that time has passed and it is definitely time for him to move on and accept that the people have seen enough – shut up and move along.
