Who the heck would ever plunk good money down to read a book titled "The Governor" by Rod Blagojevich?
That's the working title of Blagojevich's planned book, but it's a terrible title. That's why you readers are being enlisted to come up with a juicy, compelling title for our former Gov. Dead Meat's tell-all book, which was announced Monday.
If your title wins, you'll get a prize, and I mean a real prize this time, something tangible.
Because I'm writing the column, I get to go first. So how about this one:
"Et Tu, DeLeo?"
That's a reference to Blagojevich's former close friend, the former shadow governor of Illinois, state Sen. James DeLeo (D-How You Doin?), who abandoned Dead Meat and voted to remove him from office after all the good times they had.

"I Don't Discuss Business at the Table" or
"This is The Business I've Chosen"
I luv the Godfather and Blago reminds me of the movie.

"How a bad hair cut can ruin your life"
On the title what about "The Best Head of Hair in Government"...or something equally dorky like that. I do think though that for Patti Blagojevich an actress that could easily play her would be Kathy Griffin – her hair is big too so she and Rod would match. And the dialog – well it would sizzle.
I did have one question though – those six figures he got for the advance – were those figures before the decimal point or after??
They wouldn't be putting up the money for Balgo's book deal if they thought they weren't going to get a return on their investment-–regardless of the title's name--his name will sell it.
