The clueless governor

By Steve Outing

Is there anyone who doesn’t know that The Daily Show With Jon Stewart is a fake news program? Oh, yeah.

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, a Democrat, went into a recent interview with Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones and had no idea that the interview was a joke. The poor governor thus comes off looking like a chump.

I always wondered where Daily Show correspondents find people to interview who seem unaware that they’re being set up. Apparently that’s not so difficult.
