Without actually saying this was some kind of bribe, I really don't know how to describe what happened. Apparently Madonna's lawyer, Alan Chinula has convinced two of the three appeal judges to let Madonna adopt Mercy. Alan also says the third is just about to agree. How in the hell do you know if a judge is about to agree to something? The only way you know they are about to agree to something is if you did something to make them want to agree. I'm sure Alan's legal arguments were great, but I have never heard of a system where you go to work on judges one on one to make sure you get your way. I don't want to know what went on. Well, actually I do want to know what went on. I just don't want to speculate about how you get judges to agree with you one at a time and know they are going to agree with you and can predict when they are about to agree with you.
On Sunday, the Malawi Supreme Court is expected to announce she can adopt Mercy. I guess they were shown enough reasons, (ahem), that Madonna is no longer subject to the residency laws for adoption. It is going to have to be something unique to Madonna or else every other person in the world who wants to adopt a baby will come to Malawi and take advantage of the loophole. I think the Madonna rule will be that if you spend a million dollars in the country, then they consider you a resident. If some of that million goes to some deserving people and family members than, that is all the better. So, basically if you have enough money you can go buy a kid and ignore the laws and do whatever you want. Yay rich people!!
