Each week on The Grenade we would like to award a deserving member of the public eye, the Stunad of the Week Award, for lack of being overly clever; I am calling it the Stewie. To qualify this person has to go out of his/her way to say or do something like a stunad, or stupid. This week I cannot find a more deserving recipient than Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and you can even throw his lovely wife Patti, between the two managed to drop the f-bomb roughly 18 times in that 76 page report on throwing President-elect Barack Obama’s Senate seat up for grabs. My favorite part of the story is how this scumbag is not resigning from the office. You’ve embarrrassed yourself enough, Rod, just do the people you represent a favor and get the hell out of their lives and enjoy your time spent getting to know another Rod or two at one of America’s finer penitentiaries. I would love to see him pick Mickey Mouse or someone fictionial to replace the Senate seat. For kicks, he should pick good ol’ Chicago native Steve Bartman.
But, seriously, congrats on the Stewie, you truly earned it and this one will tough to top next week, but it’s always possible.
