Blagojevich's book "The Governor" is laugh-out-loud funny.

The Coiffed One is back on top again ... at least on Amazon.

Blago's novel comic book memoir reached No. 1 on Amazon.com's State and Local Politics section on Tuesday, seven days before it becomes  available for shipping.

"The Governor" (read our take here) is ranked 15th in the Leaders & Notable People category (just before Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, by Doris Kearns Goodwin), and ranked 69th among all memoirs, just beating out My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One-Night Stands, by Chelsea Handler.

The Amazon product description reads, in part:

We follow the governor as he is awakened early one morning –his young daughter sleeping peacefully beside him – and unceremoniously arrested by FBI agents without knowing the charges being brought against him. We see the harsh glare of the spotlight, the media whirlwind already staking out his home and family, rushing to judgment before even the governor himself knew what crimes he’d been accused of committing. We follow him through the maze of political conspiracies that threaten to unseat and impeach the governor of the fifth largest state in the U.S. –forces brought to light by the ambition of an attorney general and the greed of her Democratic State Party Chairman father –as well as the zeal of a federal prosecutor and the manipulations of a disloyal lieutenant governor.

Several Amazon users have already tagged "The Governor" with words they think best describe the book.

Those tags include "moron," "delusional," "historical fiction," "fantasy series," "testicular virility," and "careful picking up the soap."
