Idiot of the Week (7/9)
The corruption trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has been a Godsend for bloggers and bored newsies alike. Blago has cursed, criticized and accused Barack Obama, insulted the voters of Illinois and slurred just about every prominent person in the state, all while working only 2-8 hours of work per week.
But the move that places Blago among the elite of idiots worldwide is told to us by his former Aide Robert Greenlee;
“Occasionally Blagojevich hid from budget director John Filan, who often had bad news for the governor or wanted to discuss tough budgetary matters. In those cases, Blago would hide out in the bathroom at the back of his office.”
Rod Blagojevich, for cowering in the bathroom like a frightened schoolgirl;
You are the Red Dog Idiot of the week.
