blagojevich wireimage Rod Blagojevich already apologizing for saying 'I'm blacker than Barack Obama'Before we could even write a story about Blagojevich’s interview in the February issue of Esquire in which he claims to be “blacker” than President Obama, Blago is already apologizing for his comments.


This guy, he was catapulted in on hope and change, what we hope the guy is. What the f**k? Everything he’s saying’s on the teleprompter. I’m blacker than Barack Obama. I shined shoes. I grew up in a five-room apartment. My father had a little laundromat in a black community not far from where we lived. I saw it all growing up.
