Saturday Night Live takes on Blagojevich

Disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich made easy fodder for Saturday Night Live (SNL) this week, with a great skit where Blagojevich offers to appoint a candidate approved by the Legislature if the U.S. Senate gave him a lump sum and pays off his credit cards.

Keeping in true Blagojevich style, the first word out of the mouth of the Governor, played by Jason Sudeikis, was a swear word, with many following.

Rod Blagojevich’s wife Patti Blagojevich gets a run as well, with her character storming in with expletives to demand her husband get her a seat on NASA’s board. “You promised!” she whines.

The SNL Blagojevich video as follows; it starts about 20 seconds in, NBC is now geotertarding SNL clips so we couldn’t grab a direct embed.
