Chicago's Murder Rate is Sarah Palin's fault.

& her "gun lobby", said Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

I seem to remember this:

Why does Emanuel stoop so low? Palin is irrelevant.

Sweet home Chicago.

It's always been a hotbed of crime. However that's irrelevant to most people if you live in the north side.

Chicago politics are simply horrible. Hence why we are call "The Windy City" and have been for ages.

Our politics are corrupt and horrible. And worse yet, when Chicago was (supposedly) at it's peak was when we had the most ruthless and corrupt Mayor of our period. Mayor Daley Senior.

I don't know if it's true or not, but supposedly some politicians went to the president (I think it was Kennedy) and asked for help with Daley, to which Kennedy said something like "He has more power then I do, you are on your own".

Daley and Kennedy had a strong (Irish) connection. I don't believe anyone approached Kennedy and if he ever said this. What "help" are you referring to?

Not sure, to be honest with you I can't even remember where I heard it. I'd have to try to research it.

The way I hear it, Daley was so unspooled that he made the likes of Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum look like the guys who started Burning Man.
