Patty F’ing Blagojevich’s family comes to her defense, and the MSM helps try to rehabilitate the Illinois First Lady’s unladylike image:
The family of Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s wife said her profanity-laced comments recorded by federal prosecutors don’t reflect who Patti Blagojevich really is.
“That is absolutely not my sister,” Deborah Mell told the Chicago Sun-Times and NBC5 in an exclusive interview Wednesday. “Patti is a mother, a sister and a devoted wife. She is particularly protective of her family.”
Er, *%^&! yeah.
Prosecutors say the governor plotted to sell President-elect Barack Obama’s vacant Senate seat and he was arrested Tuesday. In the criminal complaint, his wife emerges in recorded phone conversations as scheming to punish those who got in her way.
According to the complaint, it was Patti Blagojevich’s voice in the background spewing a suggestion to “just fire” some newspaper editors if the Tribune Co. hoped for state assistance to sell Wrigley Field, the storied home of the Chicago Cubs.
“Hold up that (expletive) Cubs (expletive),” she says as her husband is talking on the telephone. “(Expletive) them.”
Patti Blagojevich’s family acknowledged the salty language contained on the recordings but said those words were uttered at a stressful time as both she and her husband were under federal scrutiny.
“I can understand it. This a pressure cooker she’s living in,” said Deborah Mell, who will be sworn in as a state representative next month.
Patti Blagojevich, 43, has not been charged with wrongdoing, and she has not spoken publicly since her husband’s arrest.
Let’s hope she washes her mouth out before she does.
