Just when I thought it was safe to tell people where I'm from.
Just when I thought I could move past the agony and embarrassment and Rod's bad hair.
The Joliet Jack Hammers, a Will County minor-league baseball team, have offered former Governor Blagojevich, a contract for the 2009 season. Team officials faxed an offer to Blagojevich's publicist this week—which includes an $800 a month salary and free lodging with a host family. The ex-governor has not turned down the offer.
The Jackhammers could celebrate Blagojevich night by giving fans bobble hair dolls (the hairstyle bobbles instead of the head). They could also sell special "golden" seats (a dig, referring to the infamous wiretaps in which he calls President Obama's former U.S. Senate seat "fucking golden.")
Just when I thought another politician surely wouldn't be as stupid as the last.Roland Burris, the Freshman Senator appointed by Rod Blagojevich to fill Barack Obama's seat, is now hearing calls for his resignation amid allegations he lied to legislators regarding the Blagojevich investigations.
Gasp, he lied?
Maybe we could be the host family for two aspiring minor league ballplayers?
