Ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich appears at Chicago Comic Con | abc7chicago.com:
The best coverage of this circus is on the Roe Conn Show, 890, WLS-AM, Chicago, weekday evenings.
August 21, 2010 (ROSEMONT, Ill.) (WLS) -- Convicted felon Rod Blagojevich compared himself to a superhero while making a paid appearance at the Chicago Comic Con.
At one point Saturday, he picked up a red 'Bat phone' and joked that he was calling his lawyer.
If the charges weren't so serious, if the felony conviction didn't carry prison time, and if Rod Blagojevich wasn't Illinois' twice-elected former governor, all this might be 100 percent funny. Instead, Mr. Blagojevich's appearance left some saying 'Holy downfall, Batman!'
The former Illinois governor charged $50 for autographs, four days after a jury convicted him of lying to the FBI but couldn't reach a verdict on other charges.
Comic Con was the latest stop for the man who recently admitted he talks too much. But Blagojevich did plenty of talking Saturday as he signed autographs and took pictures with attendees.
