My Bingo card has "ACORN," "Voter Fraud," "Black Panthers," "Chicago Thugs" and "Welfare Queen" all in a row.

I may as well start picking out my fabulous prize now.

Pretty much a non-story, as an NRA Democrat has about as much pull anywhere as a pro-choice Republican has in Kansas.
 
2013-02-27 07:59:16 AM  
Chicago can continue it's long history of good government!
 
2013-02-27 08:01:15 AM  
Does it matter? The NRA has SCOTUS telling legislatures what laws to write.

(Because legislating from the bench is wrong.)

So they actually want to reduce their power and influence in Washington?

That seems odd.

I'm simply shocked that the NRA backed candidate lost to a Democrat in Jesse Jackson Jr's old district.

One issue plus lots of money in the form of a TV spot carpet bombing.

With the current state of Chicago then gun safety can bring out a LOT of one issue voters.

Gun grabber wins in Chicago? Clearly this is a turning point.

I don't have to pay taxes on that stuff, do I?
 
2013-02-27 09:03:12 AM  
With recent federal court rulings, Chicago ain't going to be a bastion of gun control anytime soon.  This woman's election won't have any appreciable effect on this issue.

Kibbler: Forget it, Jake. It's Chitown.

(Yes "Chitown" is a word here.)


o_O

I lived in Chicago or its suburbs for about 20 years, and this is the first time I've seen "Chitown" written in text, that I can recall.  Maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

If I were not already familiar with the pronunciation ("Shy-town", or less commonly "Chai-town"), I'd probably read it as"Kai tone".

Anyway, we now return you to the thread, already in progress.

In Soviet Chicago, taxes pay for you.

They elected JJ Jr. They've proven that collectively they're dumb. You can't expect a bunch of morons to start making good decisions right away.

the_foo: Gun grabber wins in Chicago? Clearly this is a turning point.


Democrat wins in Chicago, to be specific.
Even the article says the vote was just a formality, but the writer wanted to strike a point against the NRA.

/The question is when will Illinois stop being the butt of every joke about corruption and violence.
/The Cynic in me believes we have many long years left if the elections are always uncontested.
/Every politician is against corruption and clean as a whistle... until they're caught.

"Chitown" is a fairly common term here.  It's pronounced "shy-town".

This is about as significant as strom thurmond winning re-election after having been in office for 50 years.

Yeah, I know.  As I said, I lived in the area for a long time.  I'd just never seen the word actually written.

Though it occurs to me now that based upon my original post and your reply, it appears that Chicagoans have poor reading skills and/or retention.

Democrats?  In Chicago?  Winning elections?

It's more likely than you think!
 
2013-02-27 09:44:52 AM  
A white woman winning on the south side of Chicago? Yeah, like that could happen.
