Reviewing The Governor

As reported on the main page, Eric Zorn is reading Rod Blagojevich's book The Governor and blogging about it chapter by chapter, to hilarious commenting ends. Elsewhere, the New York Times and the Seattle Times give some back story to those less familiar with the Blago saga, neither of them saying the book is ridiculous, crazy or horrible, as I'm just guessing it may be, but neither saying it's a worthwhile read, either. It'll be interesting to see how forthcoming reviews shape up.
