Cigarette and Blindfold: Backordered
So the only question now is when Blagojevich decides to hang it up. A.G. Lisa Madigan wants to get him gone. The Legislature will, at least, yank the Senate appointment by a bill — which Mr. Hair will veto or sit on for weeks, but which would put any appointment under a cloud that would give nuclear winter a run for its money.
But the story here is that Michael Madigan, the House Speaker (fist of iron, as most leaders of state legislatures are) is apparently wavering on passing articles, in a supposed move to promote Lisa’s image.
How these people act just fascinates me. Who says nepotism is dead?
Anyway: my guess is that Gov. Blagojevich, after much soul-searching and prayer, will decide this week that the best interests of the state require that he step aside.
And now, if you will excuse me, the nurse is bringing my nightly medication. Laters.
