President Obama’s royal send-off for Rahm Emanuel may have played well in Washington today, but it laid an egg at Chicago’s City Hall.
Some aldermen were downright offended by what they perceived to be Obama’s attempt to dictate Chicago’s next mayor by praising his departing chief of staff to the hilt.
Others went so far as to advise the president of the United States to butt out or risk a political backlash.
If the aldercreatures are truly offended, stop dropping out of the race for mayor. Slap Rahm around a bit. Start campaigning before he does. Sleaze him up - you know he cut off JJJr at the knees. You think he isn't compiling dossiers on potential challengers at this very moment? Start the attack now and don't wait for him to hit town.
Oh wait, this is all theater anyway, right? Shortshanks is still pulling the strings? Never mind.
