Are you as heartbroken as I am, kids?  Poor Rod Blagojevich is not only out of a job, but he's facing prison.  I thought I would help him make a good impression on the jury pool who will be deciding his fate in his impending trial.  

Do you watch American Idol?  Me neither.  However, whether you watch or not, you've probably heard of Sanjaya.  He was famous for his hairstyle constantly changing.  Well, I was thinking that perhaps the former-Governor Blagojevich might take the same tack.  

Since he's been a part of politics for many years, Blago might be comfortable with the hairstyle I call the James Traficant.

                                                 

Smokin'!  It worked for James Trafi.....Oops!  I was just told that Traficant's hairstyle didn't do him any good, and he's in the slammer.  Well, join me below the fold, kids, and we'll explore other possibilities.

Okie dokie, so maybe choosing the hairstyle of a politician is the wrong idea.  Hey, I know!  Sports!  People love sports!  And what better hairstyle is there in the world of sports than that of boxing promoter, Don King?  
                                                 

Now, that's hot!  I think tha.....Oops!  I was just informed that Don King spent 4 years in prison.  Sonuvabi....Let's move on.

Okay, so no politics and no sports.  I've got it!  Music!  Everyone loves music.  It soothes the savage beast.  Or breast.  Or beast's breasts....well, that's not really important.  What is important is picking a true giant in the field of music.  How about someone in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?  Have you guessed yet who I'm thinking about?  I bet you have--music producer Phil Spector!

                                                 

What's that?  Phil Spector is on trial for what?  Oh, shi....Let's keep going, kids.

There has to be a category I haven't thought of yet....D'oh!  I was talking about Sanjaya, and I completely forgot about entertainment!  Actors have great hair!  Let's see there's that excellent actor, Nick Nolte.
                                       

Nobody can say anything bad about Nick Nol.....dammit!

Well, then we're going to have to think outside the box.  You can't go wrong with the Serbian Stooges...

                       

Of course, it might be safer to go with fictional characters.  Maybe something for comic strip fans...

                                     

Or maybe even comfort food!

                                     

On second thought, kids, if you're gonna go Sanjaya, you might as well go Sanjaya!

My picks:

Lots of fun in eponymouse's diary Your favorite joke. I loved this one from Laurie Gator, this one from Lithium Cola, and these from BFSkinner.  

In Crashing Vor's diary, I'll Believe My Lying Eyes, Thanks., Kitty starts off a very enjoyable thread.  In the same diary, Crashing Vor posted a video of a great commercial (am I the only one who never saw it?).

In an open thread, FoundingFatherDAR asks an excellent question about Michael Steele winning the RNC chairmanship.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
