Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich stopped by to promote his new book, “The Governor,” and told the crew he didn’t think he did anything wrong. He then ran through his humble beginnings – lower middle class childhood, C scholar, didn’t even pass the Bar exam the first time – but Howard lost all sympathy after learning that Rod banged the captain of the cheerleading squad in high school.

Howard asked what really happened with the controversy surrounding Rod’s “auction” for Barack Obama’s old Senate seat, and Rod claimed he’d be exonerated once/if the tapes are heard in full: “The tapes tell the big story.” Howard told Rod the real key was jury selection – Rod should pick black male jurors, as they’re more forgiving, and dismiss any bald jurors, as they’d be jealous of his hair.
