FOF #1250 – Betty White for Mayor of Chicago

Sep 9, 2010 · 39740 views

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).

    What the hell are these parking meters you guys are talking about?

    • In 2009 Mayor Daley privatized the parking meters in exchange for a large sum of money, and people are complaining here in Chicago (and in other cities) that they aren’t seeing any of the money put back into the City’s infrastructure or transportation.

      LAZ Parking to me appears like a company that takes advantage of a city’s struggle to bring in revenue and makes a Faustian “deal with the devil” to exchange a quick sum of money in exchange for all the revenue from the machines. But it goes nowhere.

      Here’s a good early story on it in the Chicago Sun Times:

      And here’s another story:

    • I like a lot of things Mayor Daley has stood for, but ultimately I’m not a fan of his. A lot of people in Chicago think of their political leaders like Daley as the Devil You Know, fearing someone even worse will replace him.

      He’s not that bad, but he’s not that good either.

    Pastor Terry Jones’ daughter,Emma, does not want her father to burn the Koran. She has begged him not to go through with it and she describes her father in an interview as a man who became a victim of his own delusions.

    It kinda gives Madonnas’ song “Papa don’t preach” a whole new meaning. :)

    I guess after this incident Justin Bieber lost most of its German speaking fans. :-) It is about time he goes back to school!
