Blago's book is out

Ousted Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich appeared on the “Today Show” this morning to promote his new book, which hits the shelves today.

The book, The Governor, reveals the former governor’s side of proceedings that led to charges he tried to sell Pres. Obama’s vacant US Senate seat.

'I was arrested in the early morning hours on Tuesday, December 9, 2008. I didn’t anticipate it or expect it. I had no idea it was coming. It came out of nowhere — a nightmare that was hard enough to live through as it happened and, quite frankly, is hard to relive now.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Blagojevich also uses the book to attack White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, claiming he tried to get a placeholder in his House seat when he took the White House job in case he wanted to go back some day.

If you haven't had your fill of Blagojevich yet, he's scheduled to appear on "The View," tomorrow, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Thursday and "The Daily Show" on Sept. 24. He also has a date with court next June.

And even though he was stripped of his governor status, Blagojevich has set up his own website called GovernorRod.com.

Are you sick of hearing from Blago? Any plans on reading his tell-all?
