She’s A Lady.

Well she knows what I’m about,
She can take what I dish out, and that’s not easy,
Well she knows me through and through,
She knows just what to do, and how to please me.
She’s a lady. Whoa, whoa, whoa. She’s a lady.
Talkin’ about that little lady and the lady is mine.

Meet Patti Blagojevich. Wife of Rod, daughter of one of the most powerful alderman in Chicago, realtor to one Mr. Tony Rezko. And such a potty mouth!

“…hold up that fucking Cubs shit. . . fuck them.”

My goodness. My poor delicate ears. To be fair, of the 18 beautiful f-bombs in the affadavit, these are her only two. And actually both Chicago Bureau and I have expressed pretty much the same sentiment on at least a couple of occasions. Maybe that means Patti is born to be a Stinquer after all. Come on in Patti, we won’t judge, we promise!  We welcome that sort of thing…

And only 18?  In 72 pages?  I say more than that before I get out of bed in the morning.

Girlfriend must do something about that hair.

@SanFranLefty: It’s like that commercial – “She needs some hot oil help”. You would think making $700,000 in commissions could afford you a trip to the salon.

@homofascist: And a facial or two. And lipstick that doesn’t clash with her outfit. Sheesh.

Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck
Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck
Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck Fuck

And for the tie-breaker…


UGH, I miss you guys! I have to stand outside and balance the laptop on the washing machine on my gay husband’s terrace to get a wifi connection, and it’s freaking cold (for the Mediterranean coast, that is) so I’m not on nearly as much as I’d like, but I have been reading and LOVING EVERYTHING!

This weekend is huge gay festa, after which I will be logging a full report on what teh gays (i froci) think of Obama, BOOOSH, and our fucked up election process. Stay tuned!

@SanFranLefty: She’s obviously showing her solidarity to Jennifer Aniston in the whole Brangelina drama. That is, Jennifer Aniston circa 1997.

I don’t know what their kids hair look like but they’ll lose either way.

@Mistress Cynica: @homofascist: @SanFranLefty: C’mon heroes, it’s hard to put on your best face when your husband is going to end up raped and stomped to death in a federal penitentiary and the feds are working up a forfeiture claim so they can seize your bank accounts and blow it all on expensive hookers they’ll be screwing on your living room floor and dining room table.

That’s no excuse for letting your roots grow out like that, and failing to use hair conditioner. And if she’s looking concerned it’s probably because she’s waiting for the other shoe to drop from Fitzy’s indictments. Maybe the Blagos can have His-n-Her jail cells. Couldn’t he bunk with George Ryan?

Alternative song lyrics could have been provided by Lyle Lovett’s “She’s No Lady, She’s My Wife”:

She hates my mama
She hates my daddy too
She loves to tell me
She hates the things I do
She loves to lie beside me
Almost every night
She’s no lady she’s my wife

The preacher asked her
And she said I do
The preacher asked me
And she said yes he does too
And the preacher said
I pronounce you 99 to life
Son she’s no lady she’s your wife

And I can’t remember
How I met her
Seems like she’s always just been hanging here off my right arm
And I can’t remember
How I ever
Thought that I just couldn’t live without a woman’s charm

And even though
She loves the smell of French perfume
And even though
She walks around in high-heel shoes
All I know
Is I’m the one who pays her price
Man she’s no lady she’s my wife

And I can’t remember
How I met her
Seems like she’s always just been hanging here off my right arm
And I can’t remember
How I ever
Thought that I just couldn’t live without a woman’s charm

Yea she hates my mama
She hates my daddy too
She loves to tell me
She hates the things I do
She loves to lie beside me
Almost every night
She’s no lady she’s my wife

Now, to flesh out what Dear Leader homofascist said about the Cubbies and their place of business: the very first time I heard that the state wanted to buy Wrigley Field in order to help out the Cubs, I flipped the fuck out.

Seriously — in a state with a multi-billion dollar deficit, failing schools, whole square miles of Chicago that are gang/gun riddled, a mass transit system with (as I believe I’ve mentioned a couple of times) train viaducts which have crumbled down to the rebar — the state wanted to buy Wrigley… home to about 10,000 pure baseball fans, 10,000 tourists, and 20,000 drunk frat boys and trixies who could give a toss about the game that they are paying to watch. But also: a lawsuit waiting to happen, given its own problems with structural engineering (e.g. chunks of concrete, clogged ramps, etc.). That suggestion royally pissed me off.

@Mistress Cynica: Written very pre-Julia. It’s off his 1987 Pontiac album.
A couple of songs off of the Road to Ensenada album are about her, though.

Yes, I am a total geek.

@SanFranLefty: Mrs RML covered Julia’s wedding for People magazine. She interviewed Donald Rumsfeld, who went to the pre-wedding party, at a little community fiesta parade. Some photographers actually got the nighttime wedding shot but they made too much noise in the brush, were discovered and had to hand over the film. I would have run and put in in People.

We saw Lyle Lovett play Santa Fe when she was dating Julia, and he just smiled at the calls of “where’s Julia?”

@SanFranLefty: There was a bunch of bitter on the Large Band album about Julia. I kinda like him. She’s a Ho.

@redmanlaw: Why the fuck was Donald Rumsfeld at Julia’s wedding?

@SanFranLefty: Not the wedding, just the party before. Rummie has a crib up in the hills above a little community near Taos NM, not far from Julia’s place on the way to Taos Ski Valley, and of course people like that would just move in the same circles there. I could have joined the media circus but went fishing instead. Nice little streams around there.

Rumsfeld’s daughter lives up on the east side of Santa Fe and made the news a while back when some anti-war type got busted for tagging her sidewalk. The Secretary may have moved back to NM but is keeping a lo pro if he has. His place has been described as a ranch, but it’s really just a house on some land up in the pines off a dirt road with some other wealthy types. There was a demonstration at the house a few years ago, I think when Cheney came for a visit.

Cult leader on trial:

” The younger of the two sisters — who was 14 years old at the time and is now 17 — testified that on July 31, 2006, she was overcome with desire to “lie naked” with Bent and that God urged her to visit him late that evening. Bent is known as Michael Travesser to his followers.

“I wanted to lie naked with Michael,” said the girl. “I wanted him to hold me skin-to-skin… I wanted to be vulnerable with God.” The girl — who goes by the name Healed at Strong City — said she had “a great need to get naked and to not hide my heart.”

” Healed said that she had previously told her parents about wanting to be with Bent, but they didn’t offer her any direction. The girl’s parents were followers of Bent but did not live at the compound at the time.

” The girl said she prayed outside Bent’s window for God to decide whether the church leader would allow her entry. Bent then called out to her and invited her in. ”

@SanFranLefty: Get outta my head, woman!

I will lovett Lyle now and for ever.

@redmanlaw: Donald Rumsfeld? *head explodes*

@Jamie Sommers:
Ha! I’m totally in there, exploding with you.

I’m totally a Lyle groupie. I’ve seen him play at some pretty amazing shows (outdoor wineries in CA, Wolftrap, Central Park, Carnegie Hall, David Letterman show, Gruene Country Store, other central Texas venues). My favorite though was when he and cellist John Hagen sang a duet of “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” at a show out here. Like I said, total groupie.

What is your opinion of Robert Earl Keen? I love him, but I can’t stand to go to his shows because of all the ex-frat boy/sorority girl douchebags in the audience who never stop talking. I almost cut an Aggie bitch who wouldn’t shut up at a REK show at the Fillmore a few years ago.

@SanFranLefty:Mrs RML is totally into the West Texas/Austin guys (Flatlanders, Joe Ely, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Terry Allen, Butch Hancock, etc. All the cool bands would go to Lubbock on bus tours since it was between Dallas/Austin, PHX, so she got to interview Talking Heads, for instance. Joe Strummer (yeah, that one) accidentally poked her with his cue while he was playing pool with Joe Ely one night in some Lubbock dive.

@SanFranLefty: I like him but my exposure (to most live music) is severely limited for the reasons you explain and cigarette smoke. It seems the older I get, the less I can tolerate assholes and cigarette smoke.

Either that or I’m not drinking enough.

I wanna go riding on my pony on my boat.

@Jamie Sommers:
They still allow smoking in bars?

bad hair….people magazine…salons….did I stumble into Jezebel or something?
