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?
