Blagojevich on Letterman

Rod Blagojevich, recently removed from office as Illinois Governor, appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman tonight.

It’s not fair. The man hasn’t even had his day in court yet. Why was he subjected to this punishment?

Letterman: Why exactly are you here? Honest to God…

Blagojevich: Well, you know, I’ve been wanting to be on your show in the worst way for the longest…

Letterman: Well, you’re on in the worst way.

Transcript and video here.

Blagojevich is a TV freakshow. Watching him is like watching Tammy Faye Bakker or Kato Kaelin.
David Zurawik, Baltimore Sun

Blagojevich may have turned himself into enough of a celebrity to land a fat book deal — if he can stay out of jail
