Blagojevich Takes His Innocence Tour To The Daily Show (VIDEO)

Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich continued his innocence/book-promotion tour with a trip to "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" Thursday night.

The impeached governor trotted out his now-standard defense, accusing federal prosecutors and political rivals of misconduct and maintaining that he never tried to sell President Obama's Senate seat for personal gain.

"I'm the anti-Nixon," Blagojevich told Stewart. "I want every tape recording heard by you. I want those tapes released to the public. My accusers are the Nixons."

"I mean no disrespect," Stewart said. "People can convince themselves of a lot of things."

Stewart also got his hands on Blago's 'bleepin' golden' locks, which may have won him a bet with his wife.
