January 27, 2009

(CBS/AP) By the time the Rod Blagojevich’s impeachment trial opened in Springfield the Illinois governor was already well into his efforts to upstage it with a series of high profile TV appearances, reports CBS News correspondent Cynthia Bowers.

Blagojevich is refusing to take part in the trial. He says its rules are biased against him.

He’s insists his innocent and he refuses to resign. When asked about those profanity laced FBI wiretaps in which Blagojevich allegedly is heard trying to sell, among other things, President Obama’s senate seat, he says the full story hasn’t come out yet, Bowers reports.

“The fix is in,” Blagojevich said. “And soon, I will join the unfortunate legion of others who are losing their jobs in our country.”

Should this come as a surprise? Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s carefully coiffed hair  went untouched by “The View” staff before he took to the stage for his live appearance Jan. 26.

“No, he did not use ‘View’ hair and makeup,” a source close to Blago’s appearance confirmed.

In fact, the only person to get near Blago’s bangs was Joy Behar, who gave his famous moptop a tousling — one that came as a total surprise to Blagojevich and ‘View’ staffers.

Oprah, Britney, China, ‘If U Seek Amy’ and What Next Rod Blagojevich?

January 26, 2009

China says there is porn everywhere and has shut down over 1,000 web sites to show who’s boss.  Britney Spears supporters say her new album “Circus” is all about fun but critics say she is spelling a nasty word for intercourse in the song about Amy.

And Rod Blagojevich is saying his impeachment is not aboout selling the Senate seat once held by Barack Obama and he is pleading his case on TV and everywhere else….

Blago says he thought about naming Oprah to the Senate….

Here’s what we think: China cares nothing for public morality but it does want to totally control all media so that pro-democracy messages and movements are difficult.

Britney is just trying to make money.

Oprah would be a horrible senator as she doesn’t do her homework.  But then, that is where a lot of people go when they don’t do their homework.

And screw Blago….

Britney Spears is back, annoying parent groups with a new song they say is a crude lyrical trick that doesn’t belong on the airwaves.

The song’s title, “If U Seek Amy,” is sung in such a way as to sound like a crass entreaty instead of advice for finding a girl, according to the Parents Television Council.

“There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song, and it’s certainly not about a girl named Amy,” council President Tim Winter said of the third single from Spears’ new album, “Circus.”

Officials from Spears’ label, Jive, could not be reached for comment.
