After 21 years leading the nation’s 3rd largest city, Chicago’s Mayor Richard M. Daley pulled a Steven Slater by shocking everyone when he announced that he won’t run for office again when his term expires next year.
The usually aggressive leader is taking a hands-off approach, telling voters to pick whomever they like, as he won’t be making any recommendations or choosing a successor.
Anyone could be the next Mayor, meaning next year’s election could be one of the most colorful political races the nation has seen since voters in California ousted Gray Davis and replaced him with the Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Who will be crowned king of the Windy City? Ron Huberman? Rahm Emanuel? Ronnie Woo Woo? Snookie?
Can’t people just check in on Foursquare to become Mayor of Chicago?
Chances are, if you leave it to Facebook, Betty White will become the next queen of the Windy City. And yes, there is already a Facebook page to choose Betty White (thankfully I didn’t have to create it and this meme is as old in internet years as Betty White is in real life).Joining us today is cabaret baby Melissa Young to weigh in on all the hot news: God Hates the Q’uran for Being a F*g Day, celebrities we’re sick of, and if they put you on a box of breakfast cereal, what would that cereal be called?
