Booking Blago

It is my firm and considered belief that Blagojevich is angling for a fat book contract.

Why else would he flap jaws with Diane Sawyer and Larry King and a host of other television luminaries? Testifying before what other egomaniacs call "the court of public opinion" is not going to help him withstand the Illinois Senate's impeachment proceedings, nor will it prevent Patrick Fitzgerald from bringing an indictment from a federal grand jury.

What Blagojevic is doing is banking celebrity bucks, making himself enough of a household word so that some desperate New York publisher (they're all desperate these days) will offer a nice advance for a memoir, an advance large enough to keep him and Patti afloat while they appeal the inevitable.

The man is a lunatic, but a lunatic with a plan.
