Patti Takes Manhattan.

What a great picture, from the Chicago Tribune. Aren't they the perfect reality-TV couple?

In case you don't know, that's ex-governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich and his wife, Patti, in Manhattan to promote Rod's new book. Both Rod and Patti are the creations of long-time Chicago Alderman Dick Mell, who made Rod politically and made Patti the old-fashioned way (she's his daughter). Rod's downfall began when he crossed his father-in-law.

Because they are so made-for-TV, I wonder if their act is actually selling? Do people believe them or, like me, just enjoy the show?

Blaggo's hair quite simply makes him unbelievable.

Maybe Rod and Patti will be upstaged by Sarah and Todd.
How about an X rated reality show?
Rod and Patti and Sarah and Todd swap? :)
Sorry Chuck, I just had to do it!

I admit that "Sarah and Todd and Patti and Rod" has an appealing meter.
