Rahm's Back in the Race!


 From CNN- The Illinois Supreme Court has issued a ruling allowing Rahm Emanuel's name on the Chicago mayoral ballot.
The court was considering a previous appellate court ruling that the former White House chief of staff does not meet the state's residency requirements for mayoral candidates. The state Supreme Court granted a stay on that decision and agreed to a motion for an expedited ruling.
Emanuel is due to be in a mayoral debate Thursday night with the other major candidates: Gery Chico, Miguel del Valle and Carol Moseley Braun.
The election is set for February 22.

I hate to tell you this, Joe, but YOU AND PHIL JENNERJAHN agree that this is a good thing.

Phil's being on-board can only mean one thing. And you already know what that is, even though Rahm is the favorite to win.

Hopefully, just this once, the curse of the wild eyed one won't apply here.

Shiftless anonymous commenters here beat you by about 2 hours with the news, though.

I'm not 5:47pm, Joe, but I hate to jump on the bandwagon, but today Mike Pence announced that he would NOT run for President in 2012.

Care to guess which conservative nitwit "endorsed" him, as if anyone was listening?

Yup.

No Michael, Rahm working for the Prez qualifies as Federal Service, thus maintaining his Chicago residency.

It's too bad we'll never know how much it cost for Rahm to buy the city of Chicago, but it was never really a secret that it was for sale

Nothing is going to happen to Alarcon. Cooley has no will to finish the job now that he lost to Harris. He likely wouldn't have finished it anyway if he won. Lots of puff and bluster before the election, no action after.

IMHO
