The always-scheming Rod Blagojevich surfaced on Today this morning after recently learning he will not be allowed to appear on I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!. Meredith Vieira pointed out that the judge who ruled against him “wasn’t convinced you would come back if you went on this show.” Obviously! Those judges are sharp, we tell you. But Blago claims he just needs the cash, and his willingness to go eat bugs on television “is just a testament to how much I love my kids.” Of course, there are plenty of ways for shamed celebrities to make money right here in America if they’re willing to degrade themselves for the public’s amusement, which Blago clearly is. We’re confident he’ll find one while he plots his next escape.
We’re all committed — I’m committed to make sure that we’ve got all of this cleaned out, and protected. Gotta take care of the floors, you know, the floors of the forest. It’s very important. You look at other countries where they do it differently, and, it’s a whole different story. I was with the president of Finland, and he said, “We have a, much different — we’re a forest nation.” He called it “a forest nation.” And they spent a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things, and they don’t have any problem. And when it is, it’s a very small problem. So, uh, I know everybody’s looking at that. To that end. And it’s gonna work out. It’s gonna work out well.
