After the sideshow of the possible attempt to sell the Obama Senate seat and the circus that was the process that gave us Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.), where else would Blagojevich want to go but the land of "If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere" — Manhattan!
In doing so, he became one of the biggest "gets" for television in recent memory — except that seemingly anyone who wanted Blagojevich got him. Larry King, Rachel Maddow, Diane Sawyer, Geraldo Rivera. And, of course, the cringe-inducing appearance on "The View." Just when we thought Illinois's Office of the Governor had been stripped of all dignity, enter Joy Behar, mussing the Blago mane and asking for a Nixonian "I am not a crook." Could "Saturday Night Live" be next?
