The [Friday] Papers

"Rahm Emanuel and Jesus 'Chuy' Garcia clashed in an argumentative second debate Thursday night, a face-to-face meeting in which the challenger tried to put the mayor on the defensive by mocking his leadership of Chicago," the Tribune reports.

Not only that, but the consensus seems to be that Chuy won.

Now, that's not just me seeing things through an anti-Rahm prism. In fact, I'm not sure I've ever tabbed Chuy as a debate winner, while I have done so with Rahm. But I believe there is corroborating evidence.

"In a reflection of how the Emanuel camp viewed his performance, the mayor made a rare visit to the post-debate spin room," the Tribune account says.

Rare, indeed - but telling. Here's why:


Back to the Tribune for further evidence:

"While Emanuel didn't go on the offensive much during the debate, he did afterward. The mayor criticized Garcia for only recently coming around to the mayor's idea of backing an expanded state sales tax on services to shore up the city's finances."


Case closed.


Rahm also said this in the "spin room" after the debate:

"Attacking somebody is not an attack on the challenges facing the city of Chicago."



Finally, it's not quite Bernstein and boobs, but Mike Flannery, who retweeted this reply, apparently agrees about his colleague's legs.

Because women must always be judged by their bodies, even in the workplace.
