On doors hitting, part II. - Diary of a Necromancer
Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
On doors hitting, part II.
So, our Long National Tittering Behind Our Hands is over, and after inviting everyone to walk a mile in his hair Governor Blowhole disappeared down into the steam tunnels of the state capitol to have some sort of "HALLO CLEVELAND!" moment while his security detail was busy packing up and taking the baby seat out of the official vehicle. (Which seems like a mistake, since I've walked by his house a couple of times since all this started and if I were one of his neighbors I'd be ready to do something rash myself by now considering how hard it must be to park over there even without all the newstrucks...) So, what's the next shiny scandal du jour going to be, anyone have any bets?

Mmm, Chicago politics, never a dull moment: what's next for the politics desk beat?

Daley finally gets what's coming to him. (Unlikely, perhaps, but the way things have been going better not rule anything out...)
Entire staff of Streets and San discovered to be clones of the same highly-placed relative
Blagojevich found in City Hall basement wearing half-mask and playing pipe organ
Obama decides DC is boring, moves government functions into Cultural Center
Two words: Governor Oprah.

feeling: amused amused

I'd love it if Daley got caught for running the city (not that I think it's likely). Then again, I still miss Harold Washington...

You forgot the option of the ex-gov, after being soundly convicted in the criminal case, publicly asking president Obama for a presidential pardon.

Who knows, he might even start using the spotlight to ask for it before he's convicted. The fix is in, after all. And I can totally see him doing that too.
