The news (read: rumor) just broke that Rahm has spoken with the office of our esteemed Governor, Rod Blagojevich, 21 times in some recent time frame. Months at most.

Here’s the prediction: Fitz now has a WAY better idea of how politics work from his Libby experience, Rahm will be exonerated for not playing ball, and all the blowhards who scream otherwise in the interim will be made to look like idiots. Again.

Bonus prediction! It won’t matter to the blowhards, or their mainstream media counterparts, and you’ll only see how stupid this all is if you read the political blogosphere.
