Jon Stewart interviewed Rod Blagojevich for the second time last night on The Daily Show. I was surprised that Blago was able to bob and weave his way through the interview. Was Stewart effective or did he let Blago off?

@wandeljw,
After laughing more than I've laughed in a very long time during the opening segment, I turned it off when Blogo came on. I just couldn't bring myself to watch it. What do you think?

JPB and Rockhead,

I myself was surprised that Blago came out of it fairly well. Jon Stewart can be a very tough interviewer. Stewart actually stammered about as much as Blago did. Once or twice, Stewart had the upper hand briefly, but Blago dodged any serious punches.

@wandeljw,
I was talking with Diane about him today, one of our days of many conversations over a bunch of hours. We got onto people's looks, I forget how, oh, maybe it was about my people watching while waiting for her after my own quick grocery shopping while sitting on a for-sale chair by the store entry area (lottery, books for sale, baked goods, "garden" area). I was off on how few blacks are here in Abq, and allied matters. Anyway, I segued to that I like that people look different even within the same old groups and I just about never dislike someone re their looks, including politicians or anyone else I disagree with entirely.

But then I remembered Blagojovic. I can hardly bear to see an online photo in news about him. I can't stand him, and it goes beyond behavior, the hair, the hair.

This makes me feel about ten years old, except that that is mean to ten year olds. I haven't had such a visceral wish to pie slap for decades.

Stewart did give him the hair points...

something about the best head of hair in politics.

@wandeljw,
I remember Blagojevich's first Daily Show interview.

Jon Stewart was a tad more critical and skeptical now then back then.
