You can't stop Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich -- you can only hope to contain him.

Because Monday's Blago-inspired media circus just wasn't enough, the embattled governor, who's facing imminent removal from office, has scheduled a whopping 11 television interviews for Tuesday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet. As of this post, on Tuesday morning alone he's already talked with "CBS Evening News," "The Early Show" and "Fox and Friends" and has been interviewed by the Associated Press and Fox Business Network as well. (No truth to the rumor that he'll be appearing on "Sesame Street," however.)

Oh, and lest President Obama be the only one to get some good press for getting his kids a puppy, Blagojevich announced Tuesday that he and his wife gave their daughters one for Christmas.
