Rahm’s Back! Well, Sort of.

“The court has not decided whether to hear Emanuel’s appeal of Monday’s Illinois Appellate Court ruling that tossed him out of the race to replace Mayor Daley. But the Supreme Court granted Emanuel’s motion for a stay of the ruling.” [Chicago Sun-Times, via Political Wire]

HF called it yesterday–the Machine may be a little creaky from lack of use, but it can get cranked up pretty quickly when called upon. I personally have enjoyed the drama much more so thanks to the laughing-so-hard-I-almost-gave-myself-an-asthma-attack perspective of @MayorEmanuel.

I wish they would have just declared him mayor and had a coronation ceremony. It would be more honest and saved us a lot of time and taxpayer money…
