Today is the day Mayor-elect Emanuel pays the piper. A few weeks ago, he appeared on the Roe and Roeper show over on WLS AM. After talking for a bit and answering questions posed by listeners, Roe and Roeper asked Emanuel if he followed "the fake" guy on twitter.
Rahmbo laughed and asked "Are you kidding?". Seemed he was a loyal follower just like me. Emanuel has agreed to give Dan Sinker $5000 for his favorite charity and shake his hand. He promises to do it today at 5:00 p.m. live, on the air, while dressed in a "mayor suit" (whatever that entails).
Alexis Madrigal writes an article in the Atlantic giving all the details.
If you are reading, Mr. Sinker, I would like to thank you for the most enjoyable read. For the better part of two months I followed you religiously. You tell a wonderful story that made me laugh so hard I would cry. And, you made an otherwise snoozer of an election fly by. Bravo!!
I have included a few of my favorites--it is so difficult to choose only twenty.
