we need some fresh faces

Today, we learn that our own Democratic governor from Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, apparently went on the Daily Show without even knowing what it was.

C'mon, Rod. You're in politics, for chrissakes. A governor in one of our biggest states. And you've never even heard of the highest-rated political show on television?

What's worse--your handlers didn't even explain to you what it is before you went on the set?

That's almost as bad as Bush's Homeland Security Department not knowing about events that the rest of America knew just by watching CNN.

It'se a problem--because if even our Democratic pols are that clueless as to what's actually going on around them, what hope is there for creating solutions to the problems that ail the country? A politician who doesn't even know what the Daily Show is certainly can't have much clue about what else is actually happening on the ground.

Wake up, governors and congresscritters. Get out more.
