I can't stand Rahm: he's made the city rude, uncivil and very very very mean

I can't stand Rahm:  he's made the city rude, uncivil and very very very mean
Within five minutes of waking up this morning I heard from two friends.  One said he was so glad he didn’t live in Chicago anymore.  The other said he was truly welcoming a few days out of town starting tomorrow.  Gee, I wonder why…. Chicago people may not realize it, but our city is meaner... Read more »

I can't stand Rahm: and neither can Bob Fioretti, no matter what he says now

I can't stand Rahm:  and neither can Bob Fioretti, no matter what he says now
I voted for Bob Fioretti on February 24. He is my alderman, a long-time friend and colleague–and a Rahm-basher of huge proportions. And I do mean HUGE. I generally like my aldermen.  From the crooked Fred Roti to the girl’s girl Madeline Haithcock to fellow attorney Bob Fioretti, I was there for them, as I... Read more »

I can't stand Rahm: Exactly what's he done for our sacred Downtown? Not much

I can't stand Rahm:  Exactly what's he done for our sacred Downtown?  Not much
Downtown. That’s what’s on everyone’s minds these days.  Everyone’s worried that if Tiny Dancer doesn’t get another term, Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia is going to bomb out the central city.  That he’ll  put the famous Millennium Park Bean in Englewood.  That he’ll use our hard-earned tax dollars to build the tallest building in the world...

I can't stand Rahm: to him, Chicago is a mere stepping stone to the next thing

I can't stand Rahm:  to him, Chicago is a mere stepping stone to the next thing
Have you noticed that our current mayor is buzzing around like an annoying mosquito, a startled bee and a buzz saw all at once? I sure wish he’d use some of that energy to put new light bulbs into street lights in the South Loop.  That would be accomplishing something real, Mr. Mayor.  Something you... Read more »

I can't stand Rahm: he's reckless with our money, an irresponsible gambler and a crazy spendthrift

I can't stand Rahm:  he's reckless with our money, an irresponsible gambler and a crazy spendthrift
Tiny Dancer’s four-year reign over the City of Chicago has resulted in our bond rating dropping five times; we have an enormous debt and there’s no end in sight; and his very own appointed school board is already spending next year’s money. This guy deserves to be re-elected? His operating budget is based on borrowed... Read more »

I can't stand Rahm: he's a despicable liar and a detestable sneak

I can't stand Rahm:  he's a despicable liar and a detestable sneak
Tiny Dancer is a liar.  A great big liar.  And he’s in panic mode now, fellow voters, so watch out!  The lies they are afoot.  Great big whoppers. From his initial big-bucks run-off commercial of  “Oh, I’m so unlikeable but don’t hold it against me” last week, this week he’s back to being a dishonest... Read more »

I can't stand Rahm: he's an awful person who actually uses the R word, as in "Fucking Retarded"

I can't stand Rahm:  he's an awful person who actually uses the R word, as in "Fucking Retarded"
I knew it was only a matter of time before Tiny Dancer’s “people” would turn one of his latest tirades on its head.  The new spin on Rahm yelling at two mentally ill people last week at a community meeting in Wicher Park?  It was their fault.  The mentally ill people.  They had no business being there,...

I can't stand Rahm: he's the most insidious bully I have ever seen in my life

I can't stand Rahm:  he's the most insidious bully I have ever seen in my life
Today, I want to talk about Tiny Dancer’s reputation as a bully.  This is not a joke–even though we all joke about it.  This is not to be taken lightly.   And when you cast your ballot on April 7, please don’t take it lightly.  The way he treats others is despicable. A while back, I... Read more »

I can't stand Rahm: the Pullman ceremony is one reason I can't

I can't stand Rahm:  the Pullman ceremony is one reason I can't
So there they were week before last, in the Pullman neighborhood, formally designating it a National Monument with all the hoopla.  Tiny Dancer was there, all the local pols were there, the Pullman people were there.  And the crowning glory?  The President was there.  For a nice little photo-op with Rahm, who was running for...

I can't stand Rahm and I'm going to tell you exactly why over the next five weeks

I can't stand Rahm and I'm going to tell you exactly why over the next five weeks
I can’t stand Rahm. Everyone who knows me–or reads me–knows I haven’t been able to stomach him for the last four years.  And today, I have decided to devote my blog to that subject for the next five weeks.  And tell you exactly why I can’t stand him.  From my South Loop perch in our... Read more »
