In His Footsteps.


Above is a photo of Hyde Park in Chicago. We stayed with friends in one of the lovely old condos on the right of this picture. On the left, obscured by the tree, is the very unit where our Dear Reader lived before Rezko gave him some real estate advice. That's right, I snuck cigarettes on the back porch while gazing down on the very alley that the Anointed One did while he snuck cigarettes on the back porch. That grassy lawn is where his sneakers trod as he walked to the SUV he drove before he bought his Chrysler.

While no "George Washington Slept Here" plaques have been put up yet, Shootin' Buddy's friend has already had to evict at least one pack of bicycle-riding hippies in Obama shirts who had come to wave their Little Red Books in homage at the nascent shrine.

Tam, I think you're single-handedly balancing the scales from all the liberal Bush bashing that's taken place. I admit it's a tall order, but you're doin' it.

Hey, now! There are people on our team living in that building!

We need to support regime change in Chicago. I, for one, dream of rolling down Lake Shore Drive as a conquering heroine, with the grateful populace showering me with flowers and tickertape.

First we take Chicago, then we take LA!

Tam, Tam, Tam, wake up. Your dreaming about Wrigleyville on Halloween again. You look fabulous in your SAS smock. *snapping fingers*

And Tea-partying Wookie suiters to boot, but they can explain how socialism is wrong in four different languages.

Don't you mean "before he bought Chrysler"?

He liked his car so much, he bought the company! :D

Our Chicago buddies (both UC grads '99) live right there too. I love the new decorative Jersey barriers, warning billboards, idling Crown Vic Police Interceptors, and ID checkpoints on the (formerly) public street. Hear the flushing tax dollars? All this for a house the Messiah only visits 2 or 3 times a year.
Chicago politik.
