Mayor Elect Emanuel has crushed all talkers

Another case of the fix being in a former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was elected mayor of Chicago. The ballot boxes must have been spitting out ballots that did not have Emanuel punched. This was not even close as Emanuel killed all five rivals to take the helm of the nation’s third-largest city as it prepares to chart a new course without the retiring Richard M. Daley. The big thing is the margin is so wide he avoided an April run off; this is more crazy Chicago politics. We are seeing still with not all precincts in that he had 55 percent of the vote, he only needed more than 50 percent of the vote to win outright. We never felt this one was going to be closer but it was the city’s first mayoral race in more than 60 years without an incumbent on the ballot and the first in more than two decades without Daley among the candidates. Chicago has a Daley in charge for more than 43 out of the last 56 years. The good news is the mayor is not going to be former Senator Carol Moseley Braun who had less than ten percent of the vote. When they write the book on this one we cannot wait to read how this one was stolen.
