I can't get enough of the eminently quotable, real-life David F-ing Mamet character that is Gov. Rod Blagojevich of Illinois...hours of cable-news coverage last night wasn't enough to slake my f-ing thirst for all the f-ing details in this f-ing indictment. And just when I thought it couldn't get any f-ing crazier....
Turns out it's Blago's birthday today.
So I thought I'd check a few horoscopes to see how 2009 was going to be for the guv who managed to make Edwin Edwards look like Donny Osmond....
You will have plenty of fight in you this year but that does not mean you have to fight everyone. If you pick your battles carefully you will win when it counts - and get a reputation as someone who knows how to stand up for what matters in life.
Words to live by.
Today's birthday (Dec. 10): You will get to know many new people this year and will take great pleasure in learning as much as you can about them.
Seriously, Governor, that doesn't sound good.
And my favorite, Georgia Nicols from the gov's hometown paper, the Chicago Sun-Times:
IF DEC. 10 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Emmanuelle Chriqui (1977) shares your birthday today. You appear calm to others. You're gracious, cooperative and pleasant. People appreciate your sympathetic point of view; you are well-liked. Privately, you enjoy beauty, and you explore your spiritual world. You're very genuine. A major change has taken place this year for many of you, and now the dust needs to settle. Next year will be wonderfully social and friendlier!
Oh, Governor, that really, really doesn't sound good. But: happy f-ing birthday!
