Q: When is a conservative old man hipper than Blago?

A: When it comes to being interviewed on the "Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

OK, old story: On the show, Blagojevich was pitted against
Illinois state Rep. Ron Stephens, R-Greenville, a pharmacist who is trying to override Blagojevich's executive order on emergency-contraception. As everyone knows, the "Daily Show" makes a mockery of all who appear, making even dull and boring politics amusing.

But here's a new twist: According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, maybe not everyone knows about the show: The Bla-governor "said he had never watched 'The Daily Show,' and didn't know what it was when he saw it on his schedule."

In other words, when Blago comes across as a fuddy-duddy of a father, he is genuine.
"It was going to be an interview on contraceptives . . . that's all I knew about it," said Blagojevich, who laughed about the episode. ". . . I had no idea I was going to be asked if I was 'the gay governor.'" ...

Stephens said on Wednesday he was aware the segment was a joke when he agreed to do it. "I thought the governor was hip enough that he would have known that, too."

In case you haven't seen the episode, it's called "Pill of Rights."
