Rod Blagojevich survives second week on "Celebrity Apprentice"

In trouble during his first term as Illinois governor, Rod Blagojevich somehow managed to win re-election.

In a case of art imitating life, Blagojevich once again overcame the odds and managed to earn another week as a contestant on "The Celebrity Apprentice."

In Sunday night's second episode of this year's "The Celebrity Apprentice" TV show on NBC, Donald Trump did what Illinois did by giving Blagojevich a second chance. In his first opportunity to fire a man from the RockSolid team of male celebrities, the host Trump canned comedian Sinbad instead of Blagojevich or Poison frontman Bret Michaels.

While Blagojevich's political brethren were passing a historic health care bill in real life, our disgraced governor basically stood around in the background during episode two. Perhaps our disgraced governor is just a victim of unflattering editing, but he certainly came across as the dimwitted loser who hangs out with the cool kids.

On tonight's episode of "The Celebrity Apprentice," the teams were assigned a task from Kodak to set up a "storefront experience" and photo studio. They're going to be judged on the originality of their set-up, the Kodak Moments brand messaging, and the overall experience for the public.

I'm not sure who died and made Rod Blagojevich governor, but he appoints Sinbad as the project manager for the men's team, Rock Solid. Maria Kanellis takes charge of the women's team -- Tenacity.
