Talk radio just got a whole lot worse

By Michael J.W. Stickings


Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will be back on the airwaves Wednesday, serving as a fill-in host on a Chicago talk radio station.

Blagojevich will host the Don Wade and Roma Morning Show on WLS-AM — a show the station refers to as "the most positive, optimistic radio show in the universe" — alone from 7-9 am Wednesday. The station confirmed to CNN that the gig is a one-time occurrence.

So that would be... today.

But to tune in or not to tune in? On the one hand, it would be a shame for Blago to succeed. Surely we don't want that. On the other hand... why the hell not? There is rarely such opportunity for unintended hilarity, and it could be rather entertaining.

A question, though: Is Blago being brought in to guest host because the irony was just too much to resist?

If you want "positive" and "optimistic," after all -- and how stupid is that slogan? -- he's not exactly the best choice.

Unless it's positivity and optimism regarding his own massive ego and delusions of entitlement and superiority.

Yeah, this could be hilarious. Blago on Blago, ad nauseam. What could be better?
