The Rod Blagojevich Reality Show Heads to Court

Yesterday the disgraced ex-governor said he was "stolen from the people of Illinois," by U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, then got all Chicago Guy for the cameras and said: "Why don't you show up in court tomorrow?"

Blagojevich is facing racketeering and fraud charges, which are a rarity in Chicago politics. Putting on his best television tough guy face outside his office, he called Fitzgerald and Chicago feds "cowards and liars," and said they had better lay off his wife, or else. Then he basically called Fitzgerald a pussy: "I'll be in court tomorrow and I hope you are man enough to be there, too."
