Oh this little nugget, courtesy of Gateway Pundit, is simply too rich not to share: Seems Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is trying to distance himself from Barack Obama.

A picture from just after the election that appeared on Gov. Blago's website of Blago congratulating the president-elect has been taken down because, you know, the governor just can't risk his single-digit approval rating being corrupted by way of being associated with Obama.
