Video: Blago endorses the fleebaggers on the Daily Show

posted at 12:55 pm on March 8, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

I’m not sure what part of the video is the most humorous. Is it the corrupt, disgraced former governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, offering his “f*****g golden” rating to Wisconsin’s fleebaggers? The “covert” investigation into northern Illinois? The “checkpoints” at which the Daily Show’s investigative reporter stops? Actually, on that last point, they might have done better to point out the proliferation of toll booths throughout the state rather than risk a lawsuit from Taco Bell after implying they got food poisoning from their chalupa.

No, the most humorous part of this video has to be Joe Erpanbach, one of the Wisconsin 14 who refuse to participate in the legislative process because they can’t win votes any more, declaring that the fleebaggers “love American democracy!” He claims to represent the “majority of Wisconsin voters” despite Democrats having lost the last election in which voters expressed their mandate. Perhaps Erpenbach might get a job doing satire on the Daily Show later, but Jon Stewart should be wary of hiring him, because Erpenbach has a bad history of absenteeism.

Weirdest revelation of all: A Scottish version of Hooters? Maybe it makes the haggis tolerable.

Maybe he can send Roland Burris to Madison as a place holder?????

Yet another endorsement to hang around their necks. Bully!

Jaibones on March 8, 2011 at 1:00 PM

Yes, the Democrats are refusing to participate in representative government because they love democracy. That’s not Orwellian, or anything.

David Shane on March 8, 2011 at 1:01 PM

“Yo, Roland, it’s Blago….hey, get on the horn with 13 of your buddies, remember that thing I had for you a couple years back? Well, I got this new thing, and its effing golden….”

Dirtball magot….

One’s morality – or lack thereof, can be known by one’s friends.

The Oppressive-left has a really strange definition of ‘Democracy’ doesn’t it?

Chip on March 8, 2011 at 1:02 PM

“We love American democracy!”

Unless we don’t got da votes…den we’s gone to elsewheres.

BobMbx on March 8, 2011 at 1:03 PM

Blago endorsing anything, should be a strong warning for anyone, and everyone.

As for democracy. How is it democracy, to essentially force more, and more taxes from hard working people, so they can be used to line union coffers, democrat coffers, and pamper public servants with salaries and benefits, all at taxpayers expense?

capejasmine on March 8, 2011 at 1:03 PM

There goes my opinion of Blago.

Lanceman on March 8, 2011 at 1:04 PM

“We love American democracy!”

“By doing what you’re doing, how is that helpful?”

“I never said it was.”

“But you said you ‘loved’ American democracy.”

“I do.”

“I’m having trouble understanding…”

“I said I loved American democracy. I never said I loved participating in it.”

“Ahhh…”

Strange we haven’t heard from master baiters Jackson and Sharpton on the poor academic performance of black students in WI union public schools. Where’s Rainbow Push?

a capella on March 8, 2011 at 1:08 PM

Christ. Erpenbach is a dimwitted blabbering cretin. Is he not familiar with the Daily Show?

MadisonConservative on March 8, 2011 at 1:14 PM

What is a Tilted Kilt? Is that where the wilted stilt is rebuilt?

when you’ve lost JON STEWART…..

Who gives a rat’s backside what this crooked, slimy little toad thinks?

He’s no behind bars yet?

jawkneemusic on March 8, 2011 at 1:19 PM

We love democracy so much that we’re running away from it!

Good Lt on March 8, 2011 at 1:19 PM

The right to hold the government hostage until we get what we want…….

PappyD61 on March 8, 2011 at 1:20 PM

“We love American democracy!”

And the fleebaggers love it so much, they will attempt to reverse the results of an election in order to get it.

Hey! I’ve had haggis — in Edinburgh, it’s not bad. At least as long as you don’t think about the ingredients.

Why isn’t this idiot in prison? Who actually CARES what he says/thinks/does with his f***in life anyways….

“It’s like looking into the eyes of pure evil.”

HAHAHA

Abby Adams on March 8, 2011 at 1:31 PM

Not one of their better segments, but I’m very curious about that Scottish Hooters. We need one of those down here in H-Town.

Doughboy on March 8, 2011 at 1:44 PM

Endorsed by Blogo, isn’t that frakin’ Golden?
Followed up by Jon Erpanbach, the slimy little weasle who is getting financial aid from mommy and daddy to stage his widdle tantwum. Priceless.

P. Monk on March 8, 2011 at 1:45 PM

So can we now dub them “f@#$ing golden Fleebaggers” now?

So can we now dub them “f@#$ing golden Fleebaggers Fleece-baggers” now?

FIFY!

You Jack Wagons just don’t get it.
You see, not participating in the democratic process is the height of democracy.

esnap on March 8, 2011 at 2:40 PM

Blago used to have a Saturday call-in show on the Big890 WLS and whadduhyah know-every caller just LOVED Rockin’ Rod.

My parents were the Chicago-area reps for Clan Wallace USA when I was a teenager and we went around to different Highland Games . Inevitably some clan tent would have a wild Haggis in a cage and it would be chirping away like a less-prolific tribble.
The wild haggis I remember looked a lot like these little guys.

annoyinglittletwerp on March 8, 2011 at 3:15 PM

Three proud moments for the fleebaggers: Jesse Jackson, Michael Moore and now Blago. Who could ask for better support. I wonder who’s next? Charlie Sheen? All the nuts will want a piece of this pie?

jeanie on March 8, 2011 at 3:22 PM

Woe unto you without a location of the Tilted Kilt near you…

Now, if the Scots Dragoon Guards or Borderers had looked like that, I’d have extended my time deployed to stay with ‘em back in 2008…

LTC John on March 8, 2011 at 3:54 PM

Ah, my namesake…wonder where’s he’s been.

Can’t believe this crook’s not in prison.

Dr. ZhivBlago on March 8, 2011 at 4:25 PM

“where”…geez
