Hopefully, we're not in store for more lame skits with an impersonator on TNA Impact.
TNA's latest attempt to attract mainstream publicity is to offer the position of chairman of The Main Event Mafia to ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. TNA made the announcement in a news release today.
Blagojevich, who was impeached by the Illinois House of Representatives yesterday, was arrested in December and charged with, among other things, conspiring to sell the senate seat vacated by Barack Obama.
This is the second time that TNA has tried to gain publicity by linking its name with a political figure. A week after the presidential election, TNA invited Sarah Palin to become an honorary member of The Beautiful People. Predictably, the Alaska governor and former vice-presidential candidate did not respond to TNA's overture. Instead, a Palin impersonator (former WCW star Daffney) showed up on the scene for a series of skits that were a complete waste of time.
