Quick Update

1) I've just extended my lease on The Child; she found my ID badge this morning on the way to the car. Yeah, it was sitting right there on the sidewalk, where I'm guessing it had been all frakking weekend. Sheesh.

And b) how frakking stupid do you have to be to actually blow out the stupidometer? I may not be the shiniest whisk in the kitchen but ding dong, Gov. Rod Blagojevich makes me look like a freaking brain trust.

My colleague Christina renews the lease on the kids and her husband once a year - just after her birthday. The renewal has something to do with the gifts received I believe. Venal but....

I watched a bit of Fox News last night. They're foaming at the mouth over Blagojevich and trying to poke Barack Obama's name in as much as they possibly can.

How much do you pay for the lease on The Child?

I may need to renegotiate my contract.

Score one for our team, JP.

Don't let him harsh your mellow too much, Sling. We'll treat him like a drunk uncle at a family holiday...he only gets to ruin Christmas for everyone if we let him.

No less than he deserves, Cuz.

Will, you say 'venal' I say 'wily like a fox'.

Well, sure, Buck. Remember, they've already created a world in which having once shared the same elevator with a naughty person makes you a naughty person.

I suppose one can't blame them for trying to ride that train as far as it will take them. Considering that Blago is on tape himself calling Barack a *&%$er and raving that his people won't play, I'm thinking the train is already running on fumes.

Anne, I got a pretty sweet deal at 4% of full value for one year. PLUS they threw in a ream of copier paper. Sweet.

Rainey,

If you want to hear what Iwanski had to say about it, he sent in a rant for the show last night, that we're making available separately.

So does having found your badge mean that you went through the Hell of Government Badge Replacement for nothing? (Yay on the Child regardless, I was just wondering...)

And re: Blagowhozitz...paraphrasing a short blog by one of my fave authors, John Scalzi: Springfield, IL, needs to invest heavily in Brita or a similar filtration system, because there's obviously something in the water that makes their governors Teh Stoopid.

Yay on finding your ID badge, Boo on the soon-to-be Ex-Governor of Illinois.
