The Blagojevich Attention Whore Tour Stops at The Daily Show

I was really expecting more passion from Jon Stewart last night when he had former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich on his show. His treatment of this criminal didn’t measure up to how he went gangsta on non-criminals Marc Thiessen, Cliff May, Dick Armey and especially Ken Blackwell and Jim Cramer.

But part of me is happy he didn’t. I’m glad he didn’t completely embarrass Blagojevich because then the video would have gone viral and he would have gotten exactly what he craves above everything else: Attention. I personally propose that we start a new “Shameless Attention Whore of the Year Award” and Blagojevich become the first honored recipient.

Watch the interview after the jump to see Blagojevich handle himself remarkably well:

Let’s recap what’s happened since his scandal broke. Instead of going into hiding like many of us do after we do something stupid so the memory can fade from our witnesses’ minds, Blagojevich played it up. He was constantly in the media and went on David Letterman’s show. He talked to NBC about being a reality star, performed in a musical mocking him for charity, wrote a book, went on “The Celebrity Apprentice” and now is on “The Daily Show” and is chillaxin at the Chicago Comic-Con Convention.

This guy is a narcissist, as if we didn’t already know that from the recorded tapes. I honestly feel like he thinks this whole scandal is the most fun thing that has ever happened to him. He probably wouldn’t have even received this much attention if he had run for president in 2016 or after as he was recorded planning for.

I’ve been watching “Jersey Shore” and I’m sure Angelina will move out or get kicked out. Who will replace her next season then? If I didn’t already think I was the best candidate, he would be my nominee, although he might try to sell his seat.
