Amazing. But more amazing is that he found someone to actually accept an appointment. And of course the dude had to be black. Damn, Jeana. Video of Blago's announcement below. I didn't catch all of it but I did hear him say something like, "Don't see myself resinging, even if these feds house me\Big up to Jesse Jr. Big up to Jan Schakowsky..." And then he dissed Common.
