Blagojevich in Deadwood – Is It Al or is it Rod?
You know Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has landed himself in a bit o’ hot water. Charges of lining his pockets and all that. You know they’ve got him swearing on the wire tap.
Ever watch Deadwood, an HBO western featuring all manner of corruption and excellence in creative swearing. By all accounts, Blago wasn’t as skilled in cursing as Ian McShane’s Al Swearengen, but give the man points for trying. Still, I’ve scoured the Internet for Deadwood soundbites, so have a listen to a few and ask yourself: is Ian McShane channelling Al or is he channelling Rod?
