Rod Blagojevich Reactions, ‘Scott Pilgrim’ Hate And Dr. Laura In Today’s Twitter-Wood

Someone had to make the first Twitter-Wood comparison between “The Wire” and the Rod Blagojevich trial, and Seth Meyers was that man. He, along with Roger Ebert and Jeff Katz had reactions to the single guilty verdict in Chicago last night, and they all posted those thoughts on Twitter.

In other tweets, “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World” has received a lot of love from critics, despite its poor box office performance. Bret Easton Ellis decided to part ways with the pack, however, and declared his dissatisfaction with the movie. Find out how he felt below along with a weird exchange about Target between Michael Ian Black and Dane Cook and insights into Dr. Laura quitting her radio show.

-Roger Ebert, Critic/Writer (“Beyond the Valley of the Dolls,” “Up!”)

Rod Blagojevich pt. 2: @KatzMoney Watching Blagojevich’s post-trial press conference and it is an all-time classic. I love you Blago. Don’t go. You have so much left to give.

Target pt. 1: @michaelianblack Pretty sure it’s no longer clever to say “tar-zhay” when referring to Target.
-Michael Ian Black, Writer/Actor (“Run Fatboy Run,” “Wet Hot American Summer”)

Target pt. 3: @michaelianblack @danecook I don’t understand your tweet at all, and yet I am still starstruck.

Target pt. 4: @danecook @michaelianblack I guess its an inside discount retail store joke off your Target thing. I’m Dane. I mean u no harm.

@MJMcKean Re Dr Laura: ever notice how when people quit something they’re always careful to point out they’re “not quitting”?
-Michael McKean, Actor (“This is Spinal Tap,” “Adventures of Power”)
