Chicago Tribune columnist John Kass stands and smokes a cigarette near a cut-out of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich after The Chicago Tribune held a contest to come up with the best name for Blagojevich's memoirs, at the announcement of the contest's winner, Kevin Floyd, 30, 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."
