Blago did do his Democratic Party a favor, though, in releasing it now (yes he needs the money). If Blago waited 'till next summer, it might be an uncomfortable bit of publicity for the Cullerton-Madigan-Quinn crew that is trying to pretend they never even heard of a guy named Blagoyevich.

Does anyone really want to give this guy any more money? He is a habitual liar; why read it?

The story so far: Anonymous political hack with funny hairdo marries dirty-talkin' daughter of powerful politician, who muscles his son-in-law into governors office on laughable "reform" theme. Public doesn't yet realize he's deranged.

Governor immediately begins widespread shakedown operation and gets caught. Cuts deal with & sends semi-literate narrcisist to the Senate. Public now openly questions Governor's sanity and he's run out of town on a rail by suddenly righteous legislators.

Governor and wife go on national TV blitz that includes wife eating testicles or some such thing, and generally make fools of themselves.

You've just been saved $26, you're welcome.

He did tell us the replacement governor would want to raise taxes.

He was right, wasn't he?

Why are we all so quick to condemn?

Blago know that he screwed up the state ,with his giveaways, to the point that any new Governor would have to raise money by taxing.

He just copied the story of "Jesus" and changed the names, I believe he made Michael Madigan- Pontius Pilate and of course Potty Patti is Mary Magdalene.

Betcha Patrick Fitzgerald and crew are going to be reading it, and re-reading it again.

He hasn't yet been convicted, let alone even seen a day inside a courtroom-except for after his arrest, and this jerk writes a book ?

Maybe he'll get to use it like Cliff notes during his upcoming trial- that will be very unlike his David Letterman interview for sure. I don't think the Federal judge will be amused at his one liners.

And what happens to the cash he makes on the deal ?

Ye Ole Blago once again gives teacher a widespread source of materials upon which to teach our courses on ethics. (or in his case, the lack thereof)

$16.47 a pop for Blago's book???

I don't think so.

Not as long as there are public libraries. Or chairs at the local Barnes & Noble
