This should come straight out of Blagojevich's pocket: Today in Video Gamer Rage News Today

Video Game Industry Wins Over Half A Million Dollars In Attorney's Fees From State Of Illinois

The State of Illinois must pay the video game industry $510,528.64 in attorney’s fees for its unconstitutional effort to enact a law banning the sale of violent video games, Judge Matthew F. Kennelly, United States District Judge, Northern District of Illinois, ruled yesterday.

Thanks, Rod. That's half a million bucks this insolvent state doesn't have, but I'm glad you got a few minutes of precious TV airtime out of championing this ridiculous law. It was totally worth it ... it's a small price to pay for you to be able to vapidly waggle your coif for the cameras and insipidly proclaim some vague victory for something something, blah blah blah, mindless platitude etc. etc. You dimwitted pretty boy.

Not that I give a shit about video games, personally. But here's a guy who does -- and I'm pretty sure he could actually be Rod Blagojevich's chromosomally challenged nephew, but I'd need a DNA test to be certain:

`Saved by the Bell' star in scuffle with woman

OMAHA -- Dustin Diamond, who played geeky Screech on "Saved by the Bell," says he got into a dust-up with a woman at a hotel this week.


He said that the woman pounded on his hotel room door for a while early Monday so he called security. Later, he said he was opening his door to catch a ride for an early flight, and there she was.

The woman was holding a can of Mace, he said. "I'm freaked out and jump back and she says, `Where's the money, come on, tell me where it is,' and she's trying to look through my bags."

Then, he said, "she grabs my PlayStation Portable games, said, `This will have to do,' and goes running out the door.

"I'm a big gamer, and you don't mess with the D-man's video games."

(Emphasis added.)

Word. You don't tug on Superman's cape. You don't spit into the wind. You don't pull the mask off the ole Lone Ranger. And you don't mess around with the "D-man's" little plastic toys that go "beep" and "boop" and make the pretty bright lights on the teevee.

If only this had happened last July. Maybe then Gov. Hair -- the "B-man" (or should that be "R-man"? It's unclear, because "Dustin" and "Diamond" both start with "D" ... but I digress) -- would have realized what powerful and twisted forces he was messing with.
