I really don’t even know what to say about today’s top Sneedling item…
To pee or not to pee. That is the question.
• To wit: Sneed hears rumbles that the bodyguard detail protecting Gov. Blagojevich’s family compound in Chicago has run into a rather difficult problem.
• Translation: It seems first lady Patti Blagojevich does not want the security detail using the toilet facilities in her home, despite the fact the round-the-clock detail would have to vacate the premises intermittently in order to take care of their bodily functions.
• Which begs the question: Where do they pee?
In the parkway.
No wonder they’re suspected of “leaking” inside information about the guv.
*** UPDATE 1 *** I asked the governor’s office whether Sneed’s item was true. Here’s the response…
It is not true.
*** UPDATE 2 *** Dan Curry links to Sneed’s article, the governor’s office response and then adds…
However, about three or four years ago, I talked to a state trooper with direct knowledge of the house policy and he told me it was true.
As I mentioned in comments, just because it may have been true three or four years ago, doesn’t mean it’s still true today. Still, that’s two for no-pee, and one for yes-pee.
