What Were You Thinking?/Now We Know

Drew Peterson – You became “mock” engaged to a girl 26 years your junior JUST for the publicity? Your “mock” ex-fiancée claims that you “had told me that his lawyer had wanted him to be in the media and wanted to propose to someone at a restaurant”. Seriously? "Peterson told her: 'Well, if it comes out that I'm engaged to someone, it's not really true.' ... He had told me that he never said it was me. He never said that he was engaged to me. But I have heard that, like, off camera he had told I think his producer or publicist that it was me." Peterson’s Ex Christina Raines on CBS’s The Early Show.

Raines disclosed that she met him when she was 15 and he appeared to stalk her trying to date her since Stacy's disappearance. (Ewww!) Or should I say "mock" stalk? He frequented the restaurant that she worked at and was always "showing up" wherever she hung out. I had a feeling when Blagojevich was taking over Chicago media that this might be a stunt and joked around with Anastasia and a few bloggers, but I didn’t think he would be so stupid. I was wrong!

Now we know. You are just a media whore. If you can’t get your 15 minutes of fame on a regular weekly basis you have to make stuff up to catch the media’s eye. We'll just call you Illinois' media whore #1, k?

Michael Phelps – Over the weekend a London tabloid released a photograph of Michael Phelps taking a hit off a bong from September of last year. He apologized. "I'm 23 years old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again." Michael Phelps Caught Behaving Badly - -Again. The bong incident was the second behaving badly incident. The first was a drunk driving arrest at age 19 after the Olympics in Athens. He has contracts with Kelloggs and Subway and has been caught in public consuming competitor products. Sponsors Speedo and Omega say the photograph of Phelps taking a hit off a bong is a non-issue.

Now we know. You can be a role model to millions of young impressionable children and behave badly and you will still be rewarded. Exactly how is it we parents are supposed to teach our children to say no to drugs when a 14 gold medal winning swimmer smokes marijuana and there are no consequences?

Rod Blagojevich – Is going to be on The David Letterman Show tonight. You've been removed from office, how long do you plan on doing this media circus road show?

Now we know. You are just a media whore. We'll just call you Illinois' media whore #2, k?

Illinois sure knows how to produce psychopaths :p

btw, just watched Blago on Letterman - heh, Letterman didn't give him much sympathy, did he? But what was up with Blago as time-filler? He was on for most of the show?

@ my fellow Illinoisians, Mema and Lynne- Blagojevich is freakin nuts! I had to laugh because my partner is at her Mom's tonight being caretaker and we kept texting each other as we both watched Letterman.

I have to think Letterman rather enjoyed digging the hole deeper for Blagojevich. I mean, they played "My Way" when he walked in! Then Letterman kept mocking him.

It was very enjoyable. Lol!

@ Charming Lamb- His ears are rather large, aren't they?
