Impeached Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich is interviewed by Diane Sawyer on ABC’s Good Morning America. Speed ahead to around 5:15 for the Oprah mention
Hot Rod goes on the offensive as his impeachment trial starts today. In the above video, Blago mentions that he considered nominating Oprah Winfrey to replace Barack Obama in the United States Senate. Earlier he whines to Diane Sawyer about not being able to call Valerie Jarrett, Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel or Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. as witnesses in his impeachment trial.
But, they will be called in his very public Chicagoland trial.
Exit question: When will Washington make a deal to silence the uncontrollable and unhinged Hot Rod?

Illinois U.S. Senate Appointee Roland Burris, left, smiles as he meets with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nev., Wednesday, Jan. 7, 2009, on Capitol Hill in Washington
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid clings to the notion that Roland Burris will NOT be accepted until the Illinois Secretary of State signs off on the appointment.
The Illinois Supreme Court ruling on the matter is imminent and the Senate Democrats continue to look like Ass-hats. California Senator Dianne Feinstein has insisted that the signature of Jesse White (Illinois Secretary of State) is not required to seat Burris.
But, Reid insists that this block of Burris is NOT racial.
Obviously, a DEAL has not been cut with Roland Burris.
Stay tuned – Roland Burris will hold a news conference in a couple of hours.
