In move to protect Rahm Emanuel, Blagojevich re-trial moved to April (after February 22nd Mayoral election in Chicago)
Have you ever seen the Kevin Costner/Sean Connery movie “The Untouchables”?
I remember watching that as a kid, in the theater, aghast at how corrupt Chicago was. Here was this thug, Al Capone, able to get away with just about anything in the city, and everyone from the Mayor, to the judges, to the police chief seemed to do his bidding. It was disgusting.
Flashforward to 2010, and the Blagojevich retrial has been pushed back to April so that it won’t encumber foul-mouthed thug Rahm Emanuel’s vainglorious bid to become Mayor of Chicago. Emanuel is going to be called by Blagojevich’s defense this time around — and if the trial proceeded in January, as originally scheduled, that would have thrown a wrench in Emanuel’s campaigning for the February 22nd Mayor’s race.
Even more surreal than this trial date change, Rahm’s supporters have been trying to paint his foul mouth and mean streak as an ASSET in being Mayor, because they’ve been saying “people are afraid of him so he can shake them down and get things done”.
Chicago does not need a tyrant-Mayor who sends people dead fish in the mail and screams at them naked while they’re taking showers.
Chicago politics does not need to be a horror movie.
Starting November 3rd, after the midterm elections, I’m going to ask all of you out there to help us here in Chicago and prevent Rahm Emanuel from becoming Mayor. You might not have ever cared much for our city, but we will need your help. We need to form a Resistance to Rahm’s takeover of the city.
It’s a strategic move on your part, because if the Chicago Machine is gearing up to help Rahm, defeating him is a blow to the Machine.
This has great national implications: Chicago was the staging ground for Obama’s 2008 campaign. Chicago greatly influenced Iowa’s Caucus, because Chicagoans were bused down to illegally vote in that contest, throwing it to Obama and setting him up to be the Democrats’ nominee.
In 2012, Chicago will be used to throw the Iowa primary on the Republican side to Mittens Romney so that a losing, Cocktail Party GOP candidate can go on to face Obama in his re-election bid. If Rahm Emanuel is not Mayor of Chicago, and someone decent and honest is (like Tom Dart, the Cook County Sheriff), then Democrats will find it harder to marshal the resources for mischief in Iowa.
America’s third largest city should not fall into the hands of an Obama acolyte.
So, November 2nd is not a day to celebrate and disengage…because the Chicago Mayor’s race that really begins on November 3rd has great national importance where your help will be greatly needed.
