Judge says Blagojevich can’t travel to Costa Rica for reality TV show

You have to give Rod Blagojevich some credit.  Despite defining corrupt Chicago politics, Blagojevich deals with the sticks and stones with such nonchalance that it is difficult to despise him.

How can you not love the man?

How can you not love the man?

Last week, Blago tried to petition the District court system to allow him to travel to Costa Rica for a reality TV show.  Filmed deep in the foliage of a rain forest, the show is called, “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!”  A bit ironic that Blago would petition the court to participate in such a show.

In any case, Costa Rica is about the most goddamn beautiful place I’ve ever been.  Even in the thick of the rain forests, there are paths everywhere.  Stay on the path and you’ll be perfectly safe from threats.

Anyway, U.S. District Judge James Zagel denied Blagojevich’s request to be on the show, saying:

I don’t think this defendant fully understands and I don’t think he could understand … the position he finds himself in.

Ouch.  You mean the law applies to politicians as well?  Surely you jest!
