So how long..?

Until the oath of office in Illinois for elected officials includes “Will the defendant please rise?”

Why should Illinois Democrats have a monopoly on arrests? Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was indicted today on charges of lying to the the FBI about bank withdrawals to avoid federal reporting requirements. The money, in $10,000 was allegedly to pay a single individual for Hastert’s “past bad acts”, and totaled $3.5 million. $3.5 million?!

“Amateur,” sniffed Louisiana politicians.

And okay, my bus to hell friends…. re Hastert, is it too soon to start a pool on what “past bad acts” justify paying $3.5 million to any one single individual? Of course, in the GOP all those “family values” do mean a lot more possibilities.

Russian President Putin has accused the U.S. of meddling in FIFA affairs because they want to take the World Cup from Russia in 2018. And most Americans are going “There’s a World Cup in 2018?”

The Chicago Bulls fired their coach saying they wanted a “new culture” after being eliminated in the Eastern Conference semi-finals. And Knicks fans are just weeping.

 

“Bachelor” Chris Soules, the Iowa farmer, and his fiancee, Chicago fertility technician Whitney Bischoff, have called off their engagement. So congratulations to all those who had May 28 in the pool.

Has he no shame? But I guess we knew that. Ted Cruz, who voted against Hurricane Sandy relief, yesterday called for the “federal government fulfilling its statutory obligations, and stepping in to respond to this natural disaster.”

Considering the way Cruz views Texas in relation to the rest of the U.S. maybe he should be calling for foreign aid?

After a social media exchange about the possibility of Dumdledore getting married in Ireland, to Gandalf, if he were also gay? Westboro Baptist Church said they would picket such a union JK Rowling’s response “@WBCsigns Alas, the sheer awesomeness of such a union in such a place would blow your tiny bigoted minds out of your thick sloping skulls.” The woman has a way with words.

 

So there’s now an election coming up for the new FIFA president.  Which may be one of the few times when voters are less enthused than for the 2016 US Presidential election.

 

The Scripps Spelling Bee ended in a tie this year with co-champions Vanya Shivashankar and Gokul Venkatachalam. Presumably they got to the finals by spelling their own names?

 

A.J. Pierzynski back in SF this weekend with the Atlanta Braves. So the ‪#‎SFGiants‬ have won three World Championships since he left. Meaning for Giants’ fans it’s a little like seeing that obnoxious ex after many years, when you’ve done better without him or her. So you’re not bitter. Well, almost….

 

From funny friend Jerry Perisho – the most amazing part about the FIFA scandal: “Do you know how hard it is to take $150 million in bribes without using your hands?”
