Crazier than Michele Bachmann on a Ny-Quil benderSeveral months ago Rahm Emanuel left his post in the House of Representatives and temporarily abandoned his ambitions to become the first nine-and-a-half-fingered Speaker of the House in order to crack skulls for Barack Obama. Today, the specialest of all special elections determines who will “fill his seat.”

The contenders: some insane Free Republic commenter whom even Freepers find offensive, and a Democrat named Mike Quigley. Quigley will obviously win, because he is a Democrat in a heavily Democratic district, the end. But stay tuned! Rosanna Pulido may yet summon an army of swamp zombies to devour any human who goes near a voting booth, which would hand her the election by default.

  1. Whenever I see “Quigley”, I think of Mayor Quimby of the Simpsons. Don’t know if that’s good or bad for the good Mr. Quigley, if he can’t beat that crazed Puerto Rican Mexican hater Pulido, aye carumba!

  2. Come on, who hasn’t said stupid things online under a pseudonym? My whole life would be ruined if anyone connected my online comments to who I actually am.

  3. [re=282603]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: crazed *Mexican* Mexican-hater Pulido. Grandfather was a Mexican farm worker; father was born in Texas, but raised in Mexico.

  4. [re=282606]jagorev[/re]: Oh, come on. If you actually did something important and meaningful in your life, you wouldn’t be posting online all day to begin with.

  5. [re=282620]PopeyesPipe[/re]: No. Michael Steele, actually.

    [re=282619]Guppy06[/re]: Being the leader of the Republican party is meaningful! You take that back! *sob*

  6. I feel lucky that I managed to vote without getting my brains eaten… maybe she didn’t realize my precinct was in the 5th district. She didn’t even have a sign up.

  7. So if Rosanna wins, does this mean her teleprompter will be a long string of all caps? Because that would be, umm, refreshing.


  8. [re=282607]ohiolobbyist[/re]: The referendum happened when John Sweeney’s most recent DWI arrest was upgraded from a misdemeanor to a felony.

  9. Pulido will lose because she wants Latinos to return to the subsistence agriculture they left behind — and Chicago ain’t ready for re-farm.
