Why the Bride of Blago Ate a Tarantula

Usually, the all-Democrat world of Chicago politics that produced Comrade Obama reminds us of a cesspool. But sometimes it’s more like a freak show:

Former Illinois Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich says it’s difficult watching his wife, Patti, fill in for him on a reality show, but he appreciated the former Illinois first lady’s televised exercise in tarantula-eating as an “act of love.”…

After being removed from office for allegedly trying to sell President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat, Blagojevich was barred from participating in the Costa Rica-based reality show by a Chicago judge while he awaits trial.

Blagojevich said he was disappointed by the judge’s decision but that he and his wife decided she had to take his place in order to help pay the family’s bills.

In the show’s first episode, Patti Blagojevich ate a dead tarantula as part of a competition…

In the olden days, Blago would have paid the bills by having his wife bite the heads off chickens at local carnivals.
