Surprise, surprise, surprise!
You’d think Daley would just declare Rham the winner

Now the Chi-town libs will realize true tyranny. Get ready for more Meigs Field fiascos. They will wake up each morning with new decrees which they must abide.

Suffer well fools.

In addition, perhaps the little ballerina’s former hangout, Man’s Country, the sodomite bathhouse in boystown will now become a state landmark....

For his party or for the mayorship? Is there a vote between the two parties?

He wet his pants when the judge said he couldn’t claim residency. Had to come up with plenty of cash to fix that one I’d bet.

Ahh Chicago. I’m so damn glad I don’t live around there any more.
