Disgraced Ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich Blacker than Barack Obama

Disgraced former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is pissing people off yet again by declaring he is “blacker than Barack Obama” in an interview with Esquire magazine. Blagojevich was thrown out of the governor’s office last year after allegedly trying to auction off Obama’s senate seat to the highest bidder.

“I’m blacker than Barack Obama,” Rod Blagojevich says in a new interview with Esquire magazine due out this week. “I shine shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in the black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.”

Naturally, Blagojevich’s “blacker than Barack Obama” comment has plenty of people riled up – again – over the former governor’s apparent inability to recognize how much of a dumbass he is.
Blagojevich later apologized for the comment during a radio interview on WLS Radio. “It’s a stupid metaphor, and if I offended anyone, I apologize very much. I said it out of frustration,” Blagojevich said.

When is this guy just going to learn to put his head down and shut the hell up? I mean, how much deeper a hole can he dig himself into?

Rod Blagojevich, Sharon Osbourne Compete on New Celebrity Apprentice

Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is among the contestants named for the new season of Donald Trump‘s NBC reality show The Celebrity Apprentice. Blagojevich will be going up against the likes of Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper and Darryl Strawberry to compete to win money for a favorite charity.

Rod Blagojevich was removed from office last year after allegedly trying to sell off President Barack Obama‘s former senate seat and committing various other acts of campaign fundraising abuse. Blagojevich has, naturally, denied any wrongdoing. His experience ‘manipulating’ funds in office will prove to be a great asset in the game. Except, oh yeah, he wasn’t good enough at it to not get caught. So maybe not.

A spokesman for Rod Blagojevich said in a press statement the former governor “continues to receive offers and opportunities — most of which he turns down because they are not the right fit.” In this case, however, Blagojevich reportedly accepted the offer to appear on Celebrity Apprentice to help out a worthy cause. “The former governor accepted because it offered him a chance to raise money for a favorite charity and the challenge to compete against celebrities in the popular NBC program hosted by Donald Trump,” his rep said.

Thefull roster of contestants for the new season of Celebrity Apprentice is: Rod Blagojevich, Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper, actress Holly Robinson Peete, model Selita Ebanks, WWE model Maria Kanellis, comedian Carol Leifer, Olympic swimmer Summer Sanders, former baseball star Darryl Strawberry, Bret Michaels, wrestler Bill Goldberg, Olympic sprinter Michael Johnson, Sinbad and chef Curtis Stone.

Hmmm, we’re calling this one either for Sharon Osbourne (because she’ll eat you alive) or Curtis Stone as the dark horse. Now we’ll just have to wait and see who wins and how much drama it will take to get there!

The new season premieres March 14.
