This has to be good for Pat Quinn, right? From the Daily Herald:
WLS 890-AM turned its airwaves over to Rod Blagojevich for a couple hours Wednesday, as the disgraced former governor filled in for vacationing radio talk show hosts and used the platform to repeat accusations about a conspiracy to remove him from office.
Blagojevich subbed for Don Wade & Roma from 7 to 9 a.m., devoting much of that time to criticizing Gov. Pat Quinn's proposed tax increase and blasting 17 "double-dipping" state legislators with multiple government jobs. Several callers asked him questions, most of whom appeared to have been tightly screened.
Illinois voters probably aren't crazy about tax increases, but they also seem likely to want to disagree with whatever Blagojevich has to say, just as a matter of principle. Perhaps this will become a talking point on the tax increases: You're not siding with Blago, are you?
