OMG!! OMG!! OMG!! There is finally verdict (ish) in the Blagojevich trial!!
In less than two hours we will finally, sort of, maybe find out this man’s fate!!!
It seems like just yesterday that it was 2005, and he was still an under-the-radar narcissist working in the capitol, and I was but a lowly intern stalking him for quotes at discrete back-door entrances to underground tunnels. Him, donning his forceful press secretary and blacker than black, black hair; me with my uncomfortable heels and a need to please my boss by getting even one word on the record.
Oh how I still vividly remember, where I gang-banged him with a slew of real reporters, as we huddled around him hoping against hope that we would get a quote or three. One time, I actually dropped my digital recorder, and he stopped everything so he could lean over, pick it up, and hand it to me.
Those were the days man.
And then, wow, I can still remember every stunning detail about his near-jail experience. There I was scrolling through an early morning breaking news alert on my pink blackberry (what ever happened to Blackberry?) while I sat on the toilet. Blagojevich Arrested. Dec. 9, 2008.
Has it been two and a half years already, dude? Where does the time go?
No lie, it was pretty disappointing last time we were told of an impeding verdict. Really jurors? All you could agree on was one freaking count? Really? For shame.
Now though, it seems as though the latest round of jurors has agreed on 18 glorious counts! How splendid!
I simply cannot wait to find out whether or not Blagojevich will be spending time in jail or on some sort of reality show in the fall. Could go either way, you know.
Personally, I’m rooting for an appearance on “The Voice.” That, or “Survivor,” would be Bleepin’ Golden.
