Blogojevich Book Deal/There Oughta Be A Law

Have you heard? Blagojevich Lands Six Figure Book Deal with Phoenix Books.

"Corrupt Illinois politicians, for example Rod Blagojevich, are looking to cash in by telling their stories after the fact," Rep. Jack Franks (D-Woodstock) said. "They should not be allowed to benefit from their actions in any way, most of all financially." "Franks’ bill would cover any book or movie deals that detail a crime for which the elected official was convicted, and any profits derived from the deal would have to be turned over to the state of Illinois."

I don't know about you, but I'm not buying it. Blagojevich's publicist "said Blagojevich won’t 'pull any punches' and plans to reveal information and provide insights that will at times be embarrassing to himself as well as to others." Hmm, really? Just like he didn't pull any punches on his 'I am not a crook' publicity tour on GMA, The View, Letterman, etc.

Considering his past record with the truth, I'm sure it will be complete fiction. I bet he can't wait to get back on the talk shows and morning shows.

It'll be at the dollar store by mid Jan. You can pick up your copy then.
Maybe Drew will have one too :()

You know what? I wouldn't even spend a buck on it. I might consider reserving it at the library, but only if I'm going there to pick up other books. Lol! I'm not even willing to expend extra effort. Lol!

It really makes me mad that people like him are so arrogant to think we really want to buy his book and read more of his lies! Sometimes I hate to admit that I am from Illinois! LOL

Margo said...

Is it just me, or does nothing really surprise us anymore? Just another sign of the week that the world is, ahem, a little messed up.

Hey Lola. Maybe you can tell me if this site is completely bogus, or your readers can help me out. I've been nomimated at this site:
for some humor award. They supposedly give out monthly cash awards for commenters. I have no idea who nominated me, or quite frankly, why. BUT, maybe it's legit?

Jo said...

By the way, stop by my place tomorrow for an award because I think you rock and I want us to be bloggy buddies!

He just makes my blood boil, he has from almost the very beginning. Now that he has just about bankrupted the state, lived high on our hog, now he gets to make more money off of the people of this state and now the country. Slime ball...

and no, I would not even check out a copy at the local library

If every Illinois resident boycotts the book and refused to buy it, maybe he will get the message!
