Inspired by the true story of Governor Rod Blagojevich's fall from grace, Blagojevich,
Blagojevich! is a fast paced satirical romp through Blago's private crusade for freedom. Get
ready to jump into a day in the life of Governor Rod with Elvis, Tricky Dick Nixon, and others
on a pill popping dream trip. Michael K. Feinstein has penned an imaginatively written comedy
that takes us into the home and mind of one of Illinois’ most recent infamous icons.
"...Timing matters when you're doing this sort of thing, and precision is important. Either you aim to hit the zeitgeisty sweet spot or you come at it with enough distance to warrant a revisit with new eyes.
