The [Wednesday] Papers
"The U.S. Supreme Court rejected former Illinois Gov. George Ryan's appeal of his federal racketeering and fraud conviction Tuesday, all but assuring the 74-year-old will serve out his 6 1/2-year federal prison sentence," AP reports.
To save time, the Court also rejected Rod Blagojevich's future appeals.
Yes, I used that line over at Division Street yesterday, but I thought it was worth repeating.
A) Tells president he taught Ryan everything he knows.
And the problem is what?
Nation would have been better served if he had just gotten a couple blowjobs instead.
The Obama Rules
"In fact, Obama's great uncle took part in the liberation of one of the concentration camps at Buchenwald, spokesman Bill Burton said this afternoon."
Obama then declared his great uncle off-limits to media queries while surrogates tried to figure out how to blame Hillary Clinton for playing the race card.
"Armed with tightly rolled blueprints and fueled by endless cups of coffee, expediters swarm the 9th floor at 121 N. LaSalle St. every business day to wade through the often arduous process of obtaining city permits for real estate developers, builders and homeowners who don't want to do it themselves."
Pro Bono Cloutis
Jim Thompson said "I think everybody's interests have been served."
Nation would have been better off if Dell had just gotten a few blowjobs.
"And though I may have missed it, I don't think I ever heard Daley cry out in sympathy for those children or their parents, nor Thompson, nor Big Bill Cellini's road builders, nor Tony Pucillo's bridge repair guys, nor any of the lads who showed up at Tavern on Rush or Gibsons or Luxbar to raise a glass and bemoan the fate of poor old George."
Maybe the mayor should build a memorial to the Willis children in Grant Park instead of a Children's Museum.
