ROD BLAGOJEVICH IS YOUR NEW KING OF POP: Failed atavistic Fellini villain Rod Blagojevich has been spotted peddling his clownish Elvis impersonation grift at a parade in downtown Chicago. Shame on you Rod Blagojevich, for this obvious insult to the memory of John Hughes. [Chicago Tribune]

    Don’t you people act like you don’t miss good ol’ Rod. He provided countless days/weeks/months of entertainment for us and now you want to throw him under the bus, for freedom? Shame on you. Rod deserves our full support during this trying time as he attempts to put food on his family.

    John Hughes death was the Michael Jackson moment for middle class white people who grew up in the 1980’s. How dare Blago defile this moment. Excuse me, I need to go tape another stuffed animal to a light post outside a suburban high school.
