Blagojevich Thinks He’s Blacker than President Obama

hmmm. Maybe its just a shadow and shading effect, but Blagovich still looks pretty damn White in this pict.

Another day of stupidity from the ousted Illi’ gov’ner. From February’s Esquire Magazine via Yahoo News:

In the article, Blagojevich refers to the president as “this guy,” and says Obama was elected based simply on hope.

“What the (expletive)? Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter,” Blagojevich told the magazine for a story that hits newsstands Jan. 19.

“I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived,” Blagojevich said. “I saw it all growing up.”

Ahhh yes. Blagojevich must have Avatar syndrome and thinks he can out minority the minorities cause he used to shine shoes and had a laundromat running dad. Does he think he’s more Asian than me cause he’s been working hard for the money and loves watching CBS shows hosted by Julie Chen? What a genius. I hope his dad still has that laundromat so he has something to fall back on.

  1. I scoffed at the news when I heard that Blagojevich thinks he’s blacker than Obama.

    Blackness is not an occupation or childhood. In this instance, blackness is just the skin color, and for Blagojevich, a white man, to declare that he’s blacker than President Obama is to throw the civil rights movement back 50 years.

    If Blagojevich wanted to point out that he came from humble beginnings, and did not lead a privileged and pampered life prior to politics, he should have said so.

    Then again, he has no right to talk, seeing as how he tried to sell Obama’s vacated U.S. Senate seat to the highest bidder. He is no better than a criminal and we should continue to treat him as one.
