People of Chicago Allowed To Vote For Their Favorite Insider Rahm Again

by Jack Stuef


Rahm Emanuel’s bid to become mayor of this city may proceed, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled on Thursday.

Well, there you have it. Perhaps this is the last Rahm post we’ll ever have to do until he becomes a boring mayor and disappears forever? [NYT]

Countdown until Mayor Rahmbo pirouettes into his new office.

twaingirl January 27, 2011 at 8:43 pm

Change you motherf***kers can believe in.

You forgot to add a threating "or else" to the end of that. That's how all of Rahm's sentences end.

AddHomonym January 27, 2011 at 8:49 pm

He's got Rahmbunctious Emanumentum!

If they bring an appellate court, you bring a supreme court. Its the Chicago way.

Again with the incitement of violence (clutches pearls and faints away)

nounverb911 January 27, 2011 at 9:11 pm

Vote early, vote often!

Carol Moseley-Braun can sleep with the motherfucking fishes.

The streetlamps are on in Chicago tonight,
And lovers a'gazin' at stars;
The stores are all closin', and Daley is dozin',
And the fat man is counting the cars…

To me, way, hey, tow them away,
The Lincoln Park Pirates are we,

He threatened to bite iff the judge's finger.

Natl_Indecency_Cmdr January 27, 2011 at 10:45 pm

here's Rahm's statement after hearing the news:

"It's fucking called fucking goddamn democracy you motherfucking pieces of shit. [finger] Now wake the fucking dead and tell them who the fuck to fucking vote for."

Please tell me the ballots weren't printed without his name. I can't stand six months of lawsuits while the Lizard People argue whether or not the people of Chicago spell better than the people of Minnesota or Alaska. RAHM … it rhymes with BOMB, but that's not how it's spelled, people.

SayItWithWookies January 28, 2011 at 12:20 am

They did print a bunch of ballots without Rahm's name on them — but they're going to make up for it by printing an equal number with votes for him already filled in.

This is indeed a great day for . . . Democracy?

zhubajie January 28, 2011 at 8:46 pm

I guess he's a Democrat, isn't he?

His swearing in ceremony will sound like an Emergency Broadcast announcement in Oklahoma during tornado season. They will only be allowed to show it on Cinemax after midnight.

harry_palmer January 27, 2011 at 11:51 pm

If he wins he may end up thinking the Israeli army was a relatively quiet, soft life..

ttommyunger January 28, 2011 at 12:00 am

There was a really big article about this in "Who Gives a Fuck" Magazine today.

SayItWithWookies January 28, 2011 at 12:27 am

"The court's not really sure if Rahm is a resident of Chicago or not, but we figured it would be a lot easier to explain how he won the election if we said he was eligible to run."

Negropolis January 28, 2011 at 1:05 am


LionelHutzEsq January 28, 2011 at 2:27 am

"Having counted the ballots, it is clear that Mr. Emanuel has won, therefore he must be eligible to run. "

Welcome to Volusia County!

Callyson January 28, 2011 at 12:27 am

Oh, if only I were a legal Chicago resident, I could vote in this election…oh, what now?
Also, now that he is in the race, perhaps Chicagoans can benefit from a little voter education:

Barbara_i January 28, 2011 at 12:38 am

Ugh, I tried to look Palin up on Twatopedia and there is no such website. Maybe we could start one.

Callyson January 28, 2011 at 12:59 am

No worries–it seems dickipedia is in favor of equal opportunity for women:

horsedreamer_1 January 28, 2011 at 9:16 am

Her lady-wood is strong.

The Daley…er….the Lord works in mysterious ways. Now, all that is left to do is a few cemetery crawls, and buy-offs of black and hispanic politicians and community activists and we'll all be done.

No, when's the coronation? I hear Chicago is beautiful in the fall.

zhubajie January 28, 2011 at 8:52 pm

Winter is impressive.

Negropolis January 28, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Yes, if by impressive you mean a below-zero gale force wind whipping off Lake Michigan into Grant Park freezing you to your seat. It certainly is impressive.
