20 Top Tweets from @mayoremanuel...

"Word has it the 35th has set up a miniature Tokyo and has a big Godzilla suit for me to stomp it all with. Can't fucking wait!"
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.

Chicago Mayoral Race: Let the Freak Flags Fly

Do you follow the "fake" Rahm on twitter?  It has been the highlight for me during the campaign.  Whoever is writing the 140 characters or less tweets based on Emanuel's daily/hourly whereabouts is, in a word, hysterical.

Emanuel should lift his four-fingered right paw and... Read more »

Mayoral Bully Bashers: Three Men and a Little Lady

Mayoral Bully Bashers: Three Men and a Little Lady
    Last Monday, four of Chicago’s mayoral candidates met for a debate televised on WTTW.  To be honest, I found the platform of CPS students asking the questions a bit risky.  Could these candidates “be real” when surrounded and asked questions by a group of kids–many of whom will not be able to vote in the upcoming election?   Not...
