Rahm's Renter Rob Halpin Has 99 Problems.

What’s that saying about not f**king with the bull because you’re just going to get the horns? Rob Halpin and company are finding out the hard way what happens when you pick a fight with Rahm Emanuel. They hit back and they take James Meeks with you. Election records indicate a man who helped collect... Read more »

IL House Debating Medical Marijuana

UPDATE: They were several votes short. This will be pulled until early January, likely. **** Apparently, we’re packing everything into one big, freaking day: civil unions, abolishing the death penalty and medical marijuana, which they’re debating on the House floor right now. Illinois lawmakers are debating whether to legalize the use of marijuana for medical... Read more »

Vote Could Come Today On Civil Unions

Just in case you were looking for something to freak out about today, the Illinois legislature could vote on civil unions this afternoon, much to the chagrin of all of the people who needed this to last at least six weeks longer in order to ensure they received a sh*t-ton of year end donations to...

Happy F**king Birthday, Rahm Emanuel!

Have a f**king cupcake. You deserve it. Perhaps someone could get him an election lawyer?

Sh*t You Missed While I Was On Turkey Vacation

Thanksgiving Glitter GraphicsPeople who don’t get paid to do this shouldn’t have to work holidays. I love you all, but I don’t love you enough to bring you breaking news about Gery Chico in the middle of an epic Thanksgiving dinner, though, to be fair, I did have to travel to Detroit. Now that it’s... Read more »

Rod Blagojevich Chats With Perez Hilton

I’ve missed him, honestly. This is about as serious as I can see Rod Blagojevich ever getting, and it’s fascinating to me that he treats an interview with a man who’s primary pastime is drawing cartoon penises on people’s faces with Microsoft Paint, like he were one of Barbara Walters Person of the Year specials....

He's In the Majority, He Can Cry if He Wants To

You just probably cost your party major losses in the midterm election and narrowly won re-election to the majority leader position against the wailing protestations of effective Democrats everywhere. What mature activity is next for you? Well, if you’re Nancy Pelosi, the next step is calling the man who’s about to take your gavel a... Read more »

Dear TSA, I'm Just Not That Into You

Back on Monday, I totally didn’t blog because I was flying back from Boston, which is a nightmare airport only slightly worse than O’Hare, and I say that only because my flight was delayed both coming and going. Also, while I find the Chicago accent super hot in a man-in-blue-collar-uniform sort of way, the Boston... Read more »

A Rundown on Rahm's Residency

I really f**king hate this issue. It distracts so heavily from a conversation we should be having about the relative merits of the remaining mayoral candidates and their positions on business, education, city services and the like. Instead, we’re all slobbering over what appears to be the Kenyan Birth Certificate of the Chicago Mayoral Election.... Read more »

Melissa Bean Says The Long Goodbye

This only took for-f***ing-ever. Republican Joe Walsh beat Rep. Melissa Bean (D-Ill.) in the photo-finish contest in Illinois eighth congressional district–the vote counting was completed on Tuesday. Bean holds a press conference Wednesday in Schaumburg to discuss the race and Walsh has one in Washington at the Republican National Committee headquarters. If I were Melissa... Read more »
