Shut Up Kirk
- Republican U.S. Senator Mark Kirk has given his tacit endorsement of Mayor Rahm Emanuel for re-election, reports WBBM [...].
He refused to call it an endorsement, but Senator Mark Kirk made clear he feels Chicago would risk dire financial straits like Detroit has seen if Mayor Emanuel is not re-elected.
“I think the people running against Rahm don’t have the gravitas with the bond market,” Kirk said. “I would worry about the value of a Chicago debt if Rahm was not re-elected.”
Hey Kirk? Rahm majored in Dance. At Sarah Lawrence. He doesn't have any "gravitas" with the bond market any more than we do. He doesn't have an MBA or banking experience aside from the spots that Clinton and Rauner handed to him. And he couldn't even win an election against 4 nobodies - at least two of which were Machine plants to split the vote.
