Senator Oprah?

Welcome to the Entertainment Tonight approach to government.

Illinois' crooked chief executive (for awhile yet) decided to go to the Good Morning America studios instead of his impeachment trial.

Anyhow, while there he confided to Diane Sawyer that, just like New York Governor Paterson, he too almost selected for the U.S. Senate a celebrity liberal, mega-rich and Obama-enthusiastic, but with absolutely zero experience in politics.

This guy's a peach, ain't he?
