The Chicago Tribune has an article this morning about people who are outraged about what Rod Blagojevich did. That doesn't seem like anything shocking, right? Who's not outraged about Rod Blagojevich? Except they're angry about the Governor's potty-mouth.
"You expect more from a governor," said Barbara Pachter, an expert on business etiquette. "You don't always get it, but you expect more. This is just lousy behavior. We don't want our governors to be drunken sailors."
Preach on, sister. Why can't we get back to the days when politicians committed despicable crimes using language suitable for children?
Have we really fallen so far since the Teapot Dome scandal? Now that was a nice, clean unconscionable violation of the public trust the whole family could enjoy.

In light of the ongoing flap about her wardrobe, Sarah Palin sat down for an exclusive interview with the Chicago Tribune to set the record straight-ish: Oh dear no we're really frugal, it's a double standard, we're donating the clothes to charity, gosh darn it, America, priorities, such as too which.

Seems little Trig has been porking it up on the trail, and his figure just isn't what it used to be, har har…
Palin on Thursday granted one of her first newspaper interviews since becoming McCain's vice presidential nominee. She was joined by her husband, Todd, who cradled Trig, noticeably plumper since he was first introduced to the world two months ago.
Why is the mainstream media so sexist toward babies?
