Finally! An Explanation for Rod Blagojevich's Hair

Posted By on Wed, Dec 16, 2009 at 9:54 AM

I suppose many of you figured this out a long time ago.

Turns out that ousted Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich is a huge fan of Elvis Presley, which goes a long way in explaining the disgraced politician's outrageous coiffure. (Personally, I always thought Blago's hair was an homage to Lego man.)

Anyway, this Elvis connection is news today because according to the Associated Press Blagojevich is scheduled to debate the merits of Elvis' 1964 film Viva Las Vegas tonight at a college in Chicago. 

The debate comes a few hours after Blago's attorneys are expected to attend a hearing on the former governor's corruption case.

Bonus material! Continue on to watch a video of Blagojevich singing Elvis at a Chicago block party this past summer.
