If Guiliani was qualified to run, Rahm certainly is as well. I’m skeptical, though. I don’t think he’d want to hurt Joe or Hillary’s chances. Well, maybe he wants to hurt Hillary’s chances.

Because eight years of Chicago politics is not enough.

Probably irrelevant to the non-trolls among us except as another matter for derision. Few to none of us would vote for another Chicago fascist (although more than expected would apparently vote for an undeniably RINO-esque NJ gov).

As of Sunday, there were 470 homicides in the city in 2012, compared with 394 during the same time period last year.

Good job Rahm/

Can we please stop with the 2016 talk already? Geez, I’m completely burned out from the last year of nothing but political talk.

Gosh.. How about we play Chicago politics with this guy and expose certain preferences. I’ve found that the gay community isn’t keen on people stuck in the closet.

Emanuel 2016 A body count like none other!

Rahm has a birth certificate. It was issued by the government of Israel. No ambiguities. Rahn is clearly ineligible. He is not running. .

I`m not sure. With Obama putting atleast 2 new uber-liberal Justices on the Supreme Court, they`ll find a way to redfine citizenship.

ThePrez on November 26, 2012 at 5:43 PM

Gewhiz, they can just declare that term limits don’t apply to Obama.

Ok that’s it. No more reading comments. My favorite blogs have been taken over by the evil twins of Daily Kos posters.

This is why he went back to Chicaguh to become mayor. And Dem voters are real Dembeciles if they back him. That would really be The End.

Your list of demands is a publicity stunt

“what happened that day was emblematic of a deeply troubling trend among progressives…”
