During introductions at a round table discussion on methamphetamine Monday, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan introduced state Sen. Mike Jacobs, as ... Sen. Mike Boland. Oops. Boland's name was listed with Jacobs and Pat Verschoore on the list of people to introduce, but Boland wasn't in attendance. Everyone pretty much laughed it off, with Madigan adding, "that is kind of funny."
It's not funny, it's hilarious!
What I'd give for video.
Any chance Lisa Madigan's gaffe was "accidentally on-purpose" as an extremely artful jab at "Young"™©® Sen. Jacobs?
And speaking of methamphetimine, Ashley Smith, the blonde who was held up as some sort of incredible hero when she was host to the man who had murdered a judge and others in Atlanta, and who also has been held up by the religious right as some sort of proof that religion had caused the fugitive to give himself up after she told of reading the guy some religious book. Well.....
Turns out she was a drug addict who had lost her child due to her drug abuse and had done crystal meth with the murder fugitive before he decided she was an angel sent from God and that he'd been led to her. (Sounds like the meth induced delusions had more to do with his giving himself up than God.)
Ms. Smith revealed the drug use in her new book which she no doubt will make big bucks from in addition to the thousands of dollars showered on her as a reward for her role in the capture of the fugitive.
What a shame when another phoney attempt to create a hero crumbles under the truth.
