Rod Blagojevich As A Symbol Of America's Indictment Upon Itself

Click on pic to enlarge!

While Blagojevich has in a way won the heart of the media because he makes for good TV, the general consensus is that he is a crook and probably belongs in jail. What is sad in the story of Blagojevich is that he loves many things that have grown to become symbols of America and yet here we have to witness the fall of such an American at a time when the country is also going through such economic turmoil. Blagojevich was accused of bribing the Tribune Co., owners of Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Tribune, into firing journalists at the paper who were critical of him, in exchange for state help in the financing of Wrigley Field. Blagojevich said that the just loved the Cubs and wanted them to remain in their classic stadium, so perhaps he just loved the American past-time of baseball too much. He loved America too much. The ex-Illinois governor has also expressed his love of such quintessentially American things as cowboy westerns and Elvis Presley, the latter of which being the inspiration for his great American hair-do. So it is that Rod Blagojevich loved America too much and that his overzealous affection for his country and its symbols led to his downfall and charges of corruption. It does make you wonder, though, especially in light of all the corporate banks and insurance giants in America being labeled as crooks and being given government hand-outs, that perhaps this CORRUPTION, also, is a symbol of America, is very American in its essence and that the demise of Rod Blagojevich is, in reality, America's indictment upon itself.

Rod Blagojevich Does Elvis Impersonations To Influence Potential Jurors

True to form and consistent with Blagojevich's ultra-confident, cool way of dealing with his highly-publicized legal drama, he was enjoying himself on vacation with his family at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, when the indictment was issued. It is well-known that Blagojevich is a huge fan of Elvis Presley and when a couple reporters finally found him and tried to ask him a few questions, Blagojevich simply sat sipping on a cocktail while lounging outside of a guitar-shaped pool and said to the reporters, "If you expect me to get up and start singing "Jailhouse Rock," feeling sorry for myself, you're dead wrong."

Later that evening in the hotel lounge, Blagojevich was seen doing an Elvis impersonation act, decked out in a highly sequined, tight white leather outfit and singing "Love Me Tender" to the audience while holding a can of jalapeno-scented hairspray which he sprayed upon his well-known retro hairdo in between occasional pelvic thrusts. "Love me tender" was sung repeatedly by Blagojevich in case anyone in the audience might happen to become a juror during his upcoming criminal trial. When a reporter asked the former governor why he used jalapeno-scented hairspray on his gorgeous head of hair, Blago said he was still certain that he would be proven innocent of all charges and that in time President Obama would name him "Secretary of Steak Fajitas."

Rod Blagojevich Wears "Tightie-Whities" Outside Of His Jogging Pants To Express His Innocence

Click on pic to enlarge!
rod blagojevich in underwearBack in December after the then governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, was arrested on various charges of corruption, he was known to give interviews to the press before, after and during his daily exercise of jogging. He said that jogging cleared his mind and helped him come up with different ways of trying to endear himself to the public through the media. It was important for Blagojevich to do interviews and appear on various talk shows in order to try and clear his name and perhaps influence any potential jurors who might preside over his criminal case when it goes to trial. One of the brilliant ideas that Governor Blagojevich came up with was to wear a pair of underwear outside of his jogging pants in order to further emphasize his proclaimed innocence, to show that his conscience, as well as his soul, was as pure and as white as the brilliantly clean "tightie-whities" he wore outside of his clothing, in full public view, while jogging out in the infamously windy Chicago cold. When asked if the governor also wore underwear underneath his jogging pants, he simply replied, "I refuse to answer that question until I appear on the Tonight Show." Governor Blagojevich has the honor and disctinction of, out of the numerous private and public citizens I portray in their underwear in my "Obama Taco Underwear" Painting Series, being the only one so far who wears his underwear OUTSIDE OF HIS CLOTHES

Rod Blagojevich Fan Art

rod blagojevich fan artIllinois Governor, Rod Blagojevich, has captured the heart of a nation with his recent arrest and impeachment proceedings. Blagojevich was arrested after offering the Tribune Co., owners of the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field, state assistance in buying Wrigley Field in exchange for them firing a few Chicago Tribune reporters who has been critical of the governor. What followed was the media exposure of an ongoing federal investigation in which Blagojevich had been accused of many acts of corruption, including trying to sell President-Elect Obama's senate seat! It is this act and the media circus that followed in which Blagojevich endlessly entertained reporters and journalists with hilarious press conferences that have earned him this special piece of "Fan Art" in my "Obama Taco Underwear" series. . . . . . .. . . .. . . click here to read more
