The [Friday] Papers
So this is how the week ends, with Crazy Joe Biden fulfilling a mandate to laugh his way through a debate with Cub Scout sophist Paul Ryan in order to assert Barack Obama's manhood; J.C. Brizard out by "mutual agreement," which means he leaves on a lie as surely as he arrived on one; Rahm Emanuel announcing a "children first" budget that has almost nothing to do with children; and Pat Quinn's approval ratings in the dumper. Where to start?
How about here. I did not know that.
I was going to cover all these developments with a new feature today called The Tweek in Chicago Politics, featuring the best tweets of the week from the Beachwood Twitter feed, but for some reason the embedding feature isn't working for me this morning, so you'll have to be patient while I attend to that.
In the meantime . . . we have QT!
By Monday we'll have it set up in a permanent home for your bookmarking pleasure.
No word on whether the rat was J.C. Brizard.
Also, University of Chicago doctors announce that you can now finally get "a little bit pregnant."
"A Naperville man who allegedly shoved his hand into his pocket to mimic the appearance of a gun during a convenience store holdup was sentenced Thursday to 15 years in prison," the Tribune reports. "The clerk gave Alexander $83 and he fled."
If he had just tried to bribe the clerk, he apparently would've gotten off.
Let me guess: "Fuck you, Gardner!"
Stealing or bribing? Apparently it makes a difference now.
And is that under or over the acceptable limit?
Health Care Reform
Good. How soon can Barack Obama get a job there and qualify?
Occupying Wall Street
Too big to bail out.
I almost forgot Randy Michaels is still in town.
The Poets of Coming Home
The Week in Chicago Rock
The Beachwood Tip Line: Lights, action.
