And speaking of Sweet Home Chicago....

...what those who knew what they were about feared would happen if "Chuy" Garcia had been elected mayor has happened anyway: Moody's has reduced Chicago's debts to 'junk bond' status.

Not that this will necessarily have long-term consequences for Mayor Emanuel, who may be a totalitarian at heart but has been struggling manfully to put the city's financial house in order. There probably isn't another financially responsible candidate who will challenge him four years hence.

His strongest opponent will probably be another far-Left deficit lover. Or maybe more than one.

Chicago- which has always been a corrupt oligarchy- is now crazy Left as well.
