Mayor Emanuel

Posted: February 22, 2011 by aliceaitch in FAIL, WTF is wrong with Illinois

At first, I thought that Chicago electing Rahm Emanuel as mayor was the ultimate act of self-loathing, but now I’m guessing that it’s an evil plot to bring federal dollars to the city.  Are the people of Chicago really that autophobic, or are they trying to save the local fish population?

The election is also making a good case that we’re going to have to nuke Illinois from outer space to clean up the Chicago political machine. My support for president goes to the first candidate who believably makes that a campaign promise.

    You really should warn before posting things that cannot be unseen.

    Cannot say i am suprised at all. It’s not like they have elections in Chicago.

    My whole family is from Illinois–hardworking GOP stalwart farmers and surveyors and such. Hell, I was first exposed to the writings of P.J. O’Rourke when I got my hands on my uncle’s copy of Parliament of Whores on a visit back there. That helped to turn me into a conservative. (I’ll admit that the “Whores” part enticed me to pick it up. I was about 13 at the time.)

    In short, just because all my long-dead ancestors voted for Rahmbo against their will today, that’s no reason to write off the whole state. Just nuke the South Side of Chicago and Springfield, and we might see a return to common sense.

    For whatever reason, that pic gives me a Rocky Horror vibe.
