    I’ll pass.


  2. - bkhartbnjo - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 11:52 am:

    Redemption, they keep on using that word but I’m not sure they know what it means.

    But I guess “search for redemption” does not mean it has been found.


  3. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 11:54 am:

    It’s a close one-two…

    The new Madigan podcast and this Rod rehabilitation…

    Which is… less needed.


  4. - Amalia - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 11:55 am:

    and the Mell lab where he was created?


  5. - PublicServant - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 11:56 am:

    Being Blago? I would have called it “Should’a visited my relatives in Serbia’, but that’s just me.


  6. - Roadrager - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 11:59 am:

    So, this is the payoff for Chuck Goudie turning into Rod’s personal valet?


  7. - Melido Perez - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:01 pm:

    Bootleg Tiger King


  8. - Ron Burgundy - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:10 pm:

    “search for redemption”

    Keep searching. I suppose people are still searching for Bigfoot too.


  9. - DuPage - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:12 pm:

    Play the rest of the tapes.


  10. - James the Intolerant - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:12 pm:

    Amalia, correct. He was a product of one of the top ward machines. I wonder if that is mentioned /s


  11. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:12 pm:

    I haven’t listened to it yet, but does the phrase “Oh Look, A Kitty” appear anywhere in the podcast? What about when he said the F word in front of “Cubs.” (Or was that Patti)


  12. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:14 pm:

    ==He was a product of one of the top ward machines.==

    He was also a product of one of the top Elvis fan clubs.


  13. - Nick - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:16 pm:

    The only one who thought their rise to the “top tier” was inevitable was Blago


  14. - hisgirlfriday - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:19 pm:

    Pretty sad that it appears ABC News went way harder on Real Housewife Erika Jayne in their previous Hulu doc (The Housewife and the Hustler) than they are on Blago.


  15. - Nearly Normal - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:23 pm:

    This makes me miss Judy Barr Topinka even more! She was the real deal and Blago a cheap imitation.


  16. - Bruce( no not him) - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:30 pm:

    Hmm, posts about satan and blagojevich on the same day.
    Coincidence? Related?


  17. - JS Mill - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:36 pm:

    To find redemption one must actually believe in the need to redeem oneself and admit wrong doing. Blogo has not done that. And, neither has Mrs. Blago, who was prominently featured in the phone recordings, for that matter.

    Hard pass.


  18. - West Side the Best Side - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:45 pm:

    Rod, you really should do someplace else other than ABC or Hulu if you are searching for redemption.


  19. - Anonymous - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:48 pm:

    Melido Perez @12:01 pm….you made me laugh. Thanks


  20. - Norseman - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:54 pm:

    Aren’t there enough craven and corrupt politicians out there for ABC 7 to report on rather than dragging up this embarrassment.


  21. - Rudy’s teeth - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:55 pm:

    Where’s Milan Petrovic? It’s all about fundraising and where’s mine.

    Blago could be the Cevapi King of Chicago. He’s missed his calling. A perfect job for a convicted ex-governor.


  22. - Dotnonymous - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:56 pm:

    Speaking of Blagojevich…never ever mind.


  23. - Dotnonymous - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 12:57 pm:

    Take our former Governor…Please.


  24. - Just Me 2 - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 1:01 pm:

    Meh, the dude has to make money somehow if he wants to continue living in his mansion. I think he should go be an Uber/Lyft driver.


  25. - Sayitaintso - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 1:09 pm:

    “I think he should go be an Uber/Lyft driver”. God, no. Can you imagine the danger of that…..having people jumping out of the vehicle screaming, with their hands covering their ears…a traffic hazard of gigantic proportions.


  26. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 1:17 pm:

    ==Can you imagine the danger of that…..having people jumping out of the vehicle screaming,==

    Don’t forget he would have Elvis on full blast on the radio.


  27. - Joe Bidenopolous - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 1:21 pm:

    =if he wants to continue living in his mansion=

    Blago is a terrible person, but you don’t need to spread misinformation to make him look worse, he does that on his own. Dude lives in a bungalo - it’s nice and an expensive bungalo, but it’s still just a bungalo


  28. - Give Us Barabbas - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 1:30 pm:

    This is a remake. The original had a much better cast including Andy Griffith and Walter Matthau.


  29. - Annonin' - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 2:12 pm:

    amazing Blagoof only get 28 pings on a rainy Friday. Pretty sad turnout. Someone should wake up Sun Times fact checker for this one.
    BTW whatever happened to the BGA podcast?


  30. - Grimlock - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 2:15 pm:

    Remind me, how many pardon requests did this man seeking redemption take action on while in office?


  31. - Chicago 20 - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 2:21 pm:

    Isn’t it a little too early to rewrite Blago history?


  32. - Skeptic - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 2:29 pm:

    Ebeneezer Scrooge is a redemption story worthy of watching year after year. Blago…not so much. Hard pass.


  33. - Dotnonymous - Friday, Oct 29, 21 @ 4:18 pm:

    Our “Madman” style media culture would attempt to rehabilitate Charles Manson…if there were two bucks to be made?
