Governor Rod Blagojevich's surname is of Serbian origin, and back in the Old Country, (or Countries
) it's spelled Blagojevic, without an h on the end. In defiance of VDARE.com's helpful advice to to bad speller Max Blumenthal, (below
) reporters around the countryÂ have been trying to spell Blagojevich by hand,
instead of using the copy and paste command, and I wasn't totally surpised to see a headline about Governor "Blagovich",
which error is repeated several times in Google News
Based on my limited knowledge of Balkan pronunciation, KXMC North Dakota is right in saying that it's pronounced "blah-GOY'-uh-vich." If he would just go away, we and the North Dakotans could stop worrying about it.
