Forget it, Jake! It's Chi-Town!

When the president comes from the bowels of Chicago politics, where the spoils system is evolved into a baroque and elaborate thing rivaling kabuki or Byzantine imperial court protocols, rumors like this should not be surprising.

Everyone knows that the first thing you do after you get elected is give the janitorial contracts in the city buildings to your buddies and deny the renewals of your opponents' liquor licenses.

A quote from the comments:

"If this is how the Democrats manage a car company, just imagine how they will cut health care costs:

Live in a Blue District...you get your chemo, Dad gets heart surgery, grandma gets a hip replacement.

Live in a Red district...better vote right next time."

...If you live until the 'next time', that is.
