QUINN ON EMANUEL, WRIGLEY, THE OBAMA LIBRARY…AND GOD’S CAPACITY FOR LOVE
This week I reverted back to Mighty Quinn on Politics and Money for two posts, one a true masterpiece, the other merely great, on
politics in general and Rahm Emanuel in particular:
RAHM EMANUEL IS NOT GOING TO BE THE MAYOR WHO “LOST THE CUBS.”
This is the aforementioned “merely great” post and the title says it all, or most of it. My readers were not at all surprised by the outcome of the Cubs saga, by the way.
THOSE HORRIBLE SOUTH WORKS
RAHM EMANUEL’S CORE CONSTITUENCY
This post, on the placement of the Obama Library at the old South Works site, is the aforementioned masterpiece not only because it continues my usual practice of skewering our poseur (An earlier mayor, from the Chicago’s days of greatness, may have said “faker.”) mayor but also because it addresses so many issues that are vital to our crumbling society.
I also put up a post at Rant Lifestyle on a very different topic…
HOW MUCH DOES GOD LOVE US?
in which I discourse briefly on something that came to me while praying. This is the type of post I was putting on Insightful Pontificator before all my musings migrated to Rant Lifestyle. Yes, I understand the irony, or worse, of such a post appearing on a site like Rant Lifestyle, which is one of the reasons I may, and only may, be going back to my own blogs from Rant. I will, of course, keep you posted.
See my two books, The Chairman, A Novel of Big City Politics and The Chairman’s Challenge, A Continuing Novel of Big City Politics, for further illumination on how things work in Chicago and Illinois politics.
