Rod P. Blagojevich

Gossip columnist Michael Sneed of the Chicago Sun-Times reported this morning that the Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich's wife has put state troopers guarding his house on, er, hold.

To pee or not to pee. That is the question.

• To wit: Sneed hears rumbles that the bodyguard detail protecting Gov. Blagojevich's family compound in Chicago has run into a rather difficult problem.

• Translation: It seems first lady Patti Blagojevich does not want the security detail using the toilet facilities in her home, despite the fact the round-the-clock detail would have to vacate the premises intermittently in order to take care of their bodily functions.

• Which begs the question: Where do they pee?

In the parkway.

Over at Rich Miller's website, the governor's office has issued a denial.

However, about three or four years ago, I talked to a state trooper with direct knowledge of the house policy and he told me it was true.
