Saturday Ramblings

I don't care how many people think Chicken Little is a great speaker, when he's not using his teleprompter and is speaking off-the-cuff, he's not.

Jeebus! He did everything but waive his little fist and stamp his little foot.

I've got news for him -- he is an ideologue, and a whiney one, at that.

Just how broke is Illinois? REALLY broke.

When you start touting just how wonderful Canada's healthcare is, think about this little horror story:
If you’re a Canadian woman, and you’ve had surgery, you might have been been given – while you were under anesthetic, without your knowledge, without your consent – a pelvic exam by medical students in training. It is, apparently, standard practice in Canada, and no, they don’t actually want to ask for your consent, because you might not give it. So they’ve settled for insisting that when you go in for surgery, you’ve implied that you consent to letting them do anything to your body that they like.
Is this something women in the U.S. might have to look forward to under Obama care?

Want a fabulous example of democratic politics in Chicago?
The inaccuracies of the flier – stating the Preckwinkle supported the unpopular parking meter sale – are irrelevant, Carter says.

“If she didn’t do that, she did something else bad against the people,” he says.
Never forget that this was Chicken Little's training ground.

For literate sports lovers in Chicago -- Chicago Sports in Haiku. Heh.

Fabulous take on broadcast news:

Gleefully swiped from Allen.
