Why Carol Costello And Her Double-Standard Reporting Should Not Be Tolerated

Thumbnail image for 'Why Carol Costello And Her Double-Standard Reporting Should Not Be Tolerated'
  Carol Costello pushed the women’s movement back about thirty years with the sound of her cackle. Silly Carol.  The Palin Family can find enough trouble on their own. Sarah, Bristol and the gang don’t really need any help from you or CNN. My issue with Costello is her take on the Palin police tapes-cue... Read more »

Twelve Places Harder To Enter Than The White House

Twelve Places Harder To Enter Than The White House
Breaking News out of the Capital is week has left me unsettled. How does a knife-wielding fella get into the White House? Oh, plenty of scenarios went through my head…but I have to tell you, “through the unlocked front door while the alarm was temporarily shut off because it was too “noisy for the house... Read more »

IL Governor's Race: Quick-Give Gov Mumbles Some Discounted Cheese With His Rauner Whine
Have you caught the latest from the Quinn Camp? Yes.  I’m talking about Governor Mumbles mowing the lawn with the hand push mower.  Nice touch for all the tree-huggers pulling the Quinn Lever in November, eh? What a guy, huh? Between listening to the “Human Ambien” bullshit the public into believing he has been “busy”... Read more »

CPS Strike: I'm Just Going To Go Ahead And Say What You Are Probably Thinking

Karen is the president of the Chicago Teacher Union.  Once the contract is ratified and the teachers get the raise they want they should do two things.  One...find a new rep.  And two...chip in an buy Ms. Lewis a brassiere as a parting gift.  Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and sadly, books are still judged by their covers.  If this is the face of the CTU...it needs an overhaul along with an attitude adjustment.
What we are witnessing here is a pissing match, you know? Oh, sure it is a circus…no doubt in my mind. But there is a side show going on at the big top. And it is a pissing match. Karen Lewis meet Rahm Emanuel. Rahm, let me introduce you to Karen. FYI…take a good look... Read more »

Chick-fil-A: Everyone Has An Opinion

Chick-fil-A: Everyone Has An Opinion
I don’t care if you are a member of Team Adam & Eve or Team Adam & Steve. You are entitled to your opinion and the right to eat a delicious chicken sandwich where ever you choose ~ the closer to home the better.

Jesse Jackson Jr: Hijacking A Disease Along with the Congressional Seat

Jesse Jackson Jr: Hijacking A Disease Along with the Congressional Seat
UPDATE:  I wrote this way back in November…when I suspected Triple J might use his “illness” to lighten a sentence should he be indicted and a jury find him guilty. Fast forward to May.  With a pending sentence on the horizon, sources over at Huff Post Chicago suggest exactly what I predicted.    Here is... Read more »

Blagojevich Goes To Prison: Random Thoughts And Observations

Blagojevich Goes To Prison: Random Thoughts And Observations
  My thoughts and observations regarding the last twenty-four hours as I watch Blago do what he does best…lead a three-ring circus from Illinois to Denver.  Apparently he read my letter yesterday. This SOB is going out “O.J. Style”. Fanfrickintastic.  Those of you who had money riding on last meal  coming from the kitchen of... Read more »

Casinos Will Not Tarnish Illinois' Reputation...It Has Been In The Crapper For Years

The City of Big Shoulders also offers athletes with danglers the size of coconuts...and even bigger egos.  Nothing yells  "Illinois-brings-over-paid-screaming-brats-to-the-arrogance-table" more than a temper tantrum thrown courtesy of Big Z.
Governor Quinn has put his “more-than-likely-purchased-at-Payless-Shoe-Store” wing tip down. Yesterday he took to the podium with a four-hundred-page bill (no doubt splattered with grease from whatever free lunch he scored the day before) and a message. The Casino Bill as it stands is not getting his signature. And, of course, ten more minutes of the... Read more »

Hey Stand Up! Chicago Protestors ~ Sit Your Asses Down

Hey Stand Up! Chicago Protestors ~ Sit Your Asses Down
Has this picture made it to your Facebook wall in recent days; or perhaps your e-mail inbox? Who knows if an actual College Senior wrote it. Look closely, do those look like the hands of a twenty-something? My point is not to dispute who authored the sign in the picture nor analyze the handwriting. I... Read more »

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment
How many members of Bears’ upper management does it take to determine a field unplayable? Apparently about twenty. And, of course, one Lovie ”that’s a gooood question” Smith. He assessed the damage Friday afternoon while sporting a backpack (what the hell does he carry in that thing??) and a clueless look on his face (sadly, even more oblivious than... Read more »
