Robert D. Novak plans to report this weekend:
Former House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert has indicated to a close former aide that it is likely he will not run for a 12th term from his northern Illinois district and may even resign from Congress before his present term concludes. That runs counter to widespread speculation on Capitol Hill that Hastert will continue in the House for another two years as a private member with no leadership responsibilities. Since last year's Democratic takeover of Congress moved him out of the speaker's office, he has enjoyed returning to his former specialty of energy issues as a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. A footnote: If Hastert does not run, a leading candidate will be his chief of staff, Mike Stokke. Before going on Hastert's staff, Stokke was an aide for both the Illinois state legislature and the governor's office in Springfield.”
Buh-bye now.

ADDENDUM:
The New Normal: 75% Of Americans Will Be Overweight By 2015 25% of them will be Denny Hastert. Cheap shot. Ask me if I care at this point.

I was just musing the other day that we haven't seen that massive hunk of GOP garbage around lately. He didn't even show up in the Memorial Day parade in his hometown. Not that we missed him....

This will be a good time to get a strong candidate in Illinois. I would run for the position, myself, but I'm too busy blogging.

awww, I'm gonna miss the fat bastard. Maybe some stories about he and his long-time "roomie" can't be hidden anymore.

ME,
I know what you mean. I was going to make myself available for a late entry in the presidential race, but Cliff's such a slave driver.

He only feeds me Laughing Cow once a week.

Gimme,
Can anything be hidden on Denny Fatstert?

The funniest thing I ever heard about Big Boy was on the Daily Show: 'Dennis Hastert...what did he know and when did he eat it?'

It was funnier when Jon Stewart said it.

Amazingly Hastert is now just barely overweight for an old man. He's lost something like 85 pounds recently, so he probably only has a spare 30-40 left at most.
