Just like Fox News, Saturday Night Live featured Illinois’ dynamic duo, Roland Burris and Rod Blagojevich.
Burris was portrayed as a persistent, if repetitive, African-American repeatedly presenting his credentials and trying to enter the U.S. Senate, the last time falling through the ceiling of break room.
That night he tried to get into a popular D.C. Nightclub, explaining that he had served the people of Illinois twenty years and that he was “the junior senator from the State of Illinois.”
Next up was Governor Rod Blagojevich.
So, instead of using “Bleep you,” when he was asked a hostile question, he replied,
Blagojevich was asked about the 114-1 vote for impeachment.
He was asked if the use of people he had helped at his press conference wasn’t “exploitive.”
“When will you leave office?”
It was better than Blagojevich and his wife’s first appearance.
Later in the highlights of the new section, Blagojevich’s lopsided impeachment was mentioned again.
A picture of the one “No” vote was shown.
It was one of Blagojevich with a beard and mustache. Unfortunately, I missed the shot.
