It's hard to believe that there are people who follow politics closely and don't know that Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" is a send-up of real news.
What's even more a amazing is that Governor Rod Blagojevich, D-IL, who is a politician, had until a few days ago no idea that "The Daily Show" is not a legitimate news program.
Naturally, the governor looked pretty foolish on the show.
From CBS 2 Chicago:
Gov. Rod Blagojevich said that he didn't realize it was all a big joke when Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" came to do a segment on him recently, a segment that, among other things, made fun of his last name and suggested he might be gay.
See for yourself, the Blagojevich bit is here.
