Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich will likely hold a press conference by the end of this week, ABC News is reporting.

I wonder if he’s going to prepare a statement or just wing it.


If he’s going to go with the prepared statement, it’s going to be a SHORT press conference: “Based on the advice of my legal counsel in this ongoing matter, I have decided not to answer any questions. Next question.”

But if he tries to wing it, well, let’s just say that you should set your TiVo:

“I ain’t a crook. What’s wrong with trying to make a buck?”

“C’mon. It’s not like I was trying to sell the Brooklyn Bridge.” 

“This is the cost of politics and business. It’s how things get done here in Illinois.”

“What does quid pro quo mean? I don’t speak Spanish.”
