About his boss, now...

Is Richard Daley going to let Obama move into the White House, or is he going to keep him in Chicago the way he does Blagojevich?

(Just curious. Besides, to use the geeky metaphor, every Anakin needs a Palpatine, right?)

True Greens refrain from breeding for that would also increase carbon emissions. Kids, even Green ones, emit pollutants. Instead they must invest in a relationship with Mother Earth. Let the only seeds planted be that of trees. Be socially responsible.

From "Zardoz" (1974!):

"The penis is evil! The penis shoots seeds and makes new life to poison the Earth with the plague of men, as once it was! The gun shoots death, and purifies the Earth of the filth of Brutals! Go forth! And kill!"

Verify: RECHO

I'm sure the O will go the way of the Blago - he will think he's beyond reproach for having attained a higher office than his machine backers, and turn on them, only to be hoisted on his own petard.

I'm damned sure he's arrogant enough to do that. And by 2012, he will likewise have a 12% approval rating, with even Berkeley liberals pining for the good old days of W the ways Chicago libs have gotten a soft spot for (R) Governor Ryan.

Oh, no doubt.

There's no way a machine politician in the Windy City can so much as sneak out on their back porch to cadge a cigarette while Michelle isn't looking without Daley knowing about it.

If one comes up into politics through Chicago, then Daley knows where one's skeletons are buried (and if one has no skeletons of one's own, then they will be provided).

Of course, Little Dick will only use his powers for Good...

I dunno...Dickie Daley's not that bright, although he does have a certain low cunning. I see him less as Palpatine and (Godwin alert!) more as Ernst Roehm:

"Thanks for playing, now here's a lovely parting gift. Well, maybe not so lovely."

If the Greens truly wanted to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions, they would hermetically seal their heads in plastic bags.

Until that happy day, I ignore them.
