Blago to Make "Critical" Announcement Tonight



    Attention newshounds, politicos, car wreck fetishists, and self-flagellating Illinoisans who love/hate to hear the sordid details of their state's corruption:

    Rod Blagojevichwould like you to know he will be making a "critical" announcement today at 5:03CT outside the law offices of Sam Adam.

    Why? "To comment on developments in his case".

    Will he say he's guilty? Announce a plea deal? Rip off his track pants to reveal a re-animated Billy Mays? Explain why he chose three minutes after 5pm for his announcement? Who knows.

    That said, we will be livestreaming the announcement at 5:03CT. Follow us on Twitter for the link.
