Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    I’m not going to lie – I fucking love that Rahm has to run against Chuy. I mean, it’s postponing the inevitable but it’s going to be super hilarious the next 6 weeks.

    HJA, your Star Wars characters analogy is brilliant!!!

    Chicongo voters need to be reminded about one of Einstein’s famous comments…“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

    While I don’t subscribe to Socialism, Chuy needs to be given a shot (sorry) at running the city. Rahm Emanuel is certainly ruining it.
