“I’ve got no strings on me.”
He hadn’t been beholden to his Chicago puppet masters for a long time and it was time to have fun.
He played with the celebrities.
And, unlike Disney’s Pinocchio, who didn’t know he had an audience, Rod knew he had all those potential jurors out there.
And the potential book deal.
Or at least cut a deal with the U.S. Attorney to tell what he knows about those other politicians he is suggesting have been naughty.
I wonder if he had time to see how New York City workers put Chicago’s to shame in the “make work” department.
