You must be doing a piss-poor job when the useful idiots of Chicago are tired your neo-liberal, Obama-supporting ass.

Maybe the 1,000s of people murdered in Chicago since he took office were his voting base?  They're dying off faster than the Boomers.

There are very few things that could get me excited about a Chicago mayoral race, but defeating Karen Lewis could become my new priority in life.

I'm a huge fan of cities, teachers, teachers unions', unions in general, women, African Americans,cultural diversity in general, liberal politics and generally shaking things up but Karen Lewis as mayor is one of the worst ideas I've ever heard in my life.

OOO! Is "neo-liberal" the latest attempt by the right-wing media at phrase-coining??! I'm sure THIS one won't blow up in their faces hilariously.

You'd think with all the black unemployment that Chicago would at least give a black person the mayor's job since they actually have control of who becomes mayor. I don't know why Democrats keep hiring white males. I guess they think white males are superior.

I think you might be a bit confused about Chicago demographics...and about democrats - and black people, white people, hispanic people, men and women...

Rahm has been an abysmal failure as Mayor.

...but if Karen Lewis is his only challenger,Chicagoans deserve an abysmal failure as mayor.

Ha ha ha ha ha! Rahm Emanuel a liberal? Much less a neo-liberal? Y'know how I know you're not from around here?

F-bomb Rahm is a union-busting, DINO, 1%-er, corporatist autocrat. Problem is, Karen Lewis would make a great opponent. But if she won, I'm afraid she'd make a terrible mayor, no better than Tiny Dancer. Yeah, we're in a bit of a pickle here.

/Oh, and useful idiots? Go fark yourself, kid. I don't insult you or your "beach".

If you actually knew anything about what's going on in Chicago, you'd understand that Emanuel is trying to put the budget back into shape by curtailing a lot of the goodies that get people elected in big American cities.  But you aren't that informed, now are you?

Daley left a smoking crater for a budget and Emanuel is attempting to rationalize the city's operation.

Karen Lewis is a walking, talking POS.  I was listening to WBEZ (Chicago's NPR station) and they were interviewing Lewis.  This was during Emanuel's push for a longer school day, Chicago having one of the shortest, compared to other large cities.  The interviewer asked Lewis what she would do with the extra time, should the day be lengthened.  Her answer was, "a longer lunch period and recess".  Yeah, it's all about the kids, isn't it, you disgusting lard blimp.

Who coined "teabaggers?"  I doubt if it was one of them.   0bamacare was coined by the media, was it not?  It "caught on", and it's convenient for even FarkliberalsTM to use, but when they get all butthurt about it like botox Pelosi, they call it the "affordable care act" -which really isn't that affordable, especially for the 20 somethings that are getting stuck paying for it.  LOL!

But I did come for the FarkliberalsTM who like to use "Bushie" and who coined "Mittens" as well as "right wing nut" - for those who disagree with them.

"Teabaggers" was the original name for Tea Party. I know revisionist history is a major at Conservative U, but this is a matter of public record.

And yeah, the mainstream media coined it. The mainstream media, which is predominantly conservative-leaning. Except then President Obama embraced the term, the thing itself became popular, and now the media talking-heads are back to calling it "The Affordable Care Act." Which was its ORIGINAL name.
