Oh, this is just too delicious for words. My all time "favorite" politician, Gov. Rod Blagojevich, has put himself in hot water. Apparently, right before his most recent State of the State speech, G-Rod payed a make-up artist $600 to doll him up and offer advice on ideal lighting. Worse yet, he paid for it with state funds.
This guy makes John Edwards look like an amateur. I think we have a new 'Silky Pony' or 'Pink Sapphire' or whatever people are calling him these days.
In all seriousness, I hope they do correct the error, but does anyone not see him for what he is now? A man who claims to be so concerned for the poor and downtrodden that he wants to spend money Illinois doesn't have on universal healthcare, yet he'll spend that same money on make-up? He's not a hero, he's an opportunist.
I hope the Illinois GOP is paying attention, because this will make for incredibly effective commercial material when Rod's up for re-election.
