Today, after three long years of media blitzes, reality television shows, and two trials, Rod Blagojevich will be receiving his prison sentence.
No matter where you stand on the issue, it's certainly a sad day for our state, as another Governor gets shipped off to jail.
When all of this news broke, I was working at CLTV on the "metromix" entertainment show. Our web producer Anna Roberts put together a fun blog post casting a Rod Blagojevich movie, figuring out who would play all of the key figures in the saga.
It couldn't end there.
I put together a spoof trailer for the film, which quickly spread all over the internet. "Keep Love In Your Heart: The Rod Blagojevich Story" became such a viral hit, it led to a sequel, the Western "Govnor-ROD-o!"
In light of today's events, I thought it would be a good time to re-post them on my new blog home here at WGNTV. Enjoy......
