Blago Should Have Put It on Ebay

I'm looking for the first MSM wag who will have the gumption to suggest that Rod Blagojevich, the Dem Illinois governor accused of trying to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat, should have put it on Ebay.

Suggested MSM defense of Blago: hey, even with the bailouts, car czars and other government intervention in the economy, we're still trying to encourage the free market system, aren't we? If it was good enough for Sarah Palin and the Alaksa governor's plane, why shouldn't Blago have been entitled to test the market to see what a Senate seat is worth? ;-)

There could be a place yet for Blago in the Obama administration: a new cabinet position as Secretary of Innovative Entrepreneurship, perhaps?

Update [h/t FReeper Steve-b]:

Someone's gone and done it:
