Just a stay.

But he'll stay on, or there will be a river of broken legs and dead fish.

Who needs laws?

How about we just do away with elections too? Think of how much effort it would save, Voter Fraud isn’t free ya’know.

Ha ! A local residency requirement for election eligibility is no obstacle to someone for whom the Constitution is little restraint.

Seriously, it is inherent in the leftist mindset that the rules are not for them because their agenda/cause is too important and good to be inhibited by rules.

Also, rules simply get in the way of their superior “discretion” and are simply for those who don’t have the intellectual capacity to decide how they should act in any given situation.

Probably just a stay on printing the ballots, which would have excluded him.

I’ve seen you post this sentiment a couple of times today.

It seems we’re getting to that point, now isn’t it?

The left just doesn’t seem to want to even allow things to be resolved peacefully.

“the court ordered the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners to put Emanuel’s name back on the mayoral ballot while it considers the appeal.”

I can read. The court is corrupt. Rather than interpret local law, they’re legislating on the bench. They gave no reason why they ordered his name on the ballot.

All that matters is the advancement of the agenda.
If the rules favor you, screw the folks’ opinion.
If the rules are against you, screw the rules, the folks’ must have their choice!

I'm afraid so. After the Nov 2010 elections, there was a chance that the Left would understand where they stood, and might pull back a little. But Pelosi went into over-drive and rammed through everything she could. And the Republicans are not standing up and acting like they have real support.

The government clearly doesn't care what we think. I believe we'll have to get their attention somehow.

The IL Surpremes are terribly afraid an African-American will be the major of Chicago. The last time it happened, Harold Washington lasted a term. Then the machine got out and kept the whites in the executive position by re-aligning power sharing with minorities. No more of that, to be sure.

Carol Mostly Brown is one of the most rabbid racists in Illinois. I'd say the country but that rep from Texas (McKinny?) beats Brown flat out.

Carol Moseley Braun is not going to be a happy camper.

If Rhambo's not careful C. Moseley Braun is liable to publish some just-discovered photos of the former White House staffer at a DC sex club practicing all sorts of stinky kink with that babe Rosa De Lauro - his former Washington DC landlady.
