A cardboard cut-out of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich stands beside actor Neil Giuntoli playing the role of late Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley and Kevin Floyd, 30, winner of The Chicago Tribune's contest to name Blagojevich's memoirs, outside the Tribune Tower in Chicago, Illinois on March 6, 2009. Kevin Floyd, 30, is to be awarded a beef tongue for his winning entry, Rod and the Giant Impeach, after his entry surged ahead in the final minutes the online contest was open, leading Kass to speculate on Chicago-style election tactics in his column; the beef tongue was awarded "in symbolic anticipation" that the former governor will "sing to the feds."
