NBC says all Blagojevichs are the same, casts one for I'm a Celebrity

Patti & Rod BlagojevichNow that Saturday Night Live is off the air, what's the fun in former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich doing anything if we can't have it made fun of on "Weekend Update?" The biggest douchebag in the Midwest, and I can say that because I live there, wasn't allowed to join Sanjaya on NBC's summer reality show because of that whole legal matter. So NBC, proving how "FOX-y" they can be, have now signed Mrs. Rod Blagojevich to join I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here this summer.

Now, I support the decision to not allow Rod there because he'd either be taking hits out on fellow celebrities (wait a minute ... Sanjaya will be there) or he'd just disappear altogether. But in an era where getting rejected by a bachelor can make you a "Star" worthy of Dancing, it still boggles my mind that being married to a jackass is enough. We don't know anything about Patti Blagojevich except for her terrible taste in men. Kristen Wiig hasn't even developed an impression of her and now she's going to be on a major summer reality show?

Heh, that was funny to even write: "major reality show." Haha!!

The best part is that when she was explaining on Today why she agreed to do it she said, "In this terrible economic time, I feel it's necessary to go to work to support my family." Oh, terrible economic times! Those are the catchwords of the year! Now we all have to love her and support her. Maybe Blago can bribe the production staff into letting her win. Ah, NBC, you are the new Fox.
