The Senate trial begins by mrsteabag on 26 January 2009 8:37pm
We may have a new Gov. by Friday. Instead of staying in Springfield and defending himself against the charges, Gov. B. has made the rounds of the talk shows to plead his case in the court of public opinion. No one is representing him.
Three other notes:
Mrs. B was fired from her job as head of economic development for an NFP last week.
Ed Genson, who'd been retained as lead council, quit last week because of Gov. B.'s decision to work with a PR firm--the one representing Drew Peterson, a retired suburban police officer whose third wife was murdered and fourth wife disappeared some 14 months ago
and the third: Chicago's Mayor Daley came flat out and said that Gov. B is "COO-COO"

I saw that on BBC News tonight. I am no longer sure if he is crazy like a fox, or just plain crazy. Maybe he is already planning his talk show career. I remember the story about the cop Drew Peterson. What a mess!

He was on The View, I heard. He wouldn't let their stylists touch his hair. Looks like a toupee, anyway. Something about that man's face makes me shudder. (The close-set eyes reminding me of W?) I get the distinct impression he's as phony as a $3 bill.

I liked the way Oprah Winfrey responded very coolly that she thought she'd make a good Senator,except she just wasn't interested.

Gov. B also toyed with the idea of one of our ABC affiliate's anchors named Cheryl Burton as senator. Same response as Oprah.
I watched a bit this morning. Gov. B was also looking at starting a foundation of some sort to ostensibly support his causes while covering his financial operations. He was going to see if Bill Gates and Warren Buffet would donate, I believe...
Mike, he is just plain nuts.

Oprah is such a blow-bag! I remember her as a big mouth local TV co-host here . She wasn't anything to talk about then and in my opinion, still isn't. But I know people worship the ground she walks on. SO funny.

I agree Patty, but she is quite personable and with her money, she could pass me a cigar anytime. ;)

OMG! WTF?!?! Patty, did I read your last posting correctly? Does this mean that I'm not the only one who doesn't run out or log on to order leopard print flats? I watched her when Roseanne was on, and when a singer I like was on. I may have to post about a lot of the questions I have about her show. You made my day. Now we just have to get Bleepgojevich's sorry self out of office and all will be well.

Geesh, I thought I was one of the few who doesn't think she is Top Sh-t! HAHAHA
Re: The Senate trial begins by mrsthing on 28 January 2009 5:59pm
I'm neutral about Oprah, too.

Did you know she used to live next door (so to speak) to John Cleese? His former 16-acre ranch, Stalloreggi, backed up to her 50+ acre estate in Santa Barbara.
