Last week, everyone couldn't stop talking about Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's arrest on charges of conspiracy and soliciting bribes. But Saturday Night Live's weekend update couldn't resist poking fun at the helmet of hair Blagojevich sports 24/7. During Seth Meyer's and Amy Poehler's final "Weekend Update" segment together, the two dove into their "Really!?!" bit with the governor as their target. At first, the two addressed the situation as a whole, but at the 1:10 mark, the SNLers launched into a solid forty-five seconds of sheer mockery about Blagojevich's hairstyle of choice.
And to add to it all, this week, everyone is not only buzzing about officials calling for Blagojevich's resignation, but also the governor's bizarre hairbrush obsession revealed in a New York Times article.
"And yet, Mr. Blagojevich, 52, rarely turns up for work at his official state office in Chicago, former employees say, is unapologetically late to almost everything, and can treat employees with disdain, cursing and erupting in fury for failings as mundane as neglecting to have at hand at all times his preferred black Paul Mitchell hairbrush. He calls the brush "the football," an allusion to the "nuclear football," or the bomb codes never to be out of reach of a president."
What do you think of all this attention being paid to Blagojevich's fluffy 'do?
