HOW CAN EVEN THE IL GOP NOT BEAT THIS GUY (Via Bucky Tremblay):

Illinois Governor Confused by 'Daily Show' (Fox News, February 24, 2006)

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich wasn't in on the joke. Blagojevich says he didn't realize"The Daily Show" was a comedy spoof of the news when he sat down for an interview that ended up poking fun at the sometimes-puzzled Democratic governor.

"It was going to be an interview on contraceptives ... that's all I knew about it," Blagojevich laughingly told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in a story for Thursday's editions. "I had no idea I was going to be asked if I was 'the gay governor.'" [...]

The segment, which aired two weeks ago, also featured Illinois Republican Rep. Ron Stephens, a pharmacist who opposes the governor's rule. Stephens has said he knew the show was a comedy.

Even if Blagoevich didn't know what the Daily Show was, shouldn't a staffer have known? At least it wasn't Ali G.

Would that it were only the Daily Show that confuses Gov. Rod

Be funny to see the faxes and e-mails John Stewart and the producers are getting from Illinois Democrats over this one.
