Clearly when the republicans say Chicago they mean crooked politician. I don't think race enters into the equation.

I'm from Chicago and that's exactly what it means. Rahm fits in great!

It does in their minds, Horribilus. Of course, if you say, "garden salad," racial division enters their minds. Not much we can do about that.

Except call them on it every time it leaves their lips. That is the only reason they can get away with their BS is we let them.

"Chicago" is an apt term because, fairly or not, it evokes an image of corruption in the pop culture. Just like California makes people think of fruits & nuts and NYC in the 1970s made people think of street crime.

Think "Untouchables," or more recently, the fact that Chicago was the setting for seedy, corrupt Gotham City in the Dark Knight movie trilogy.

Like the majority of recent Illinois governors...

So were the 2 Mayor Daleys and the King of the Illinois legislature, Mike Madigan. See, the whites in Chicago are dems and superior so they feel they need to rule over the ignorant minorities.

That's certainly what comes to my mind. Say "Chicago" and I think of football, airport delays, crime mobs, and dirty politics.

Or just the location where Obama came from?

In 2004, Arnold Schwarzenegger, then a popular figure in the Republican Party, gave an exciting, upbeat and surprisingly funny speech at the GOP convention. He covered a lot of territory: the story of how he came to America, how he became a Republican after listening to Richard Nixon, and other highlights of his life story.

Afterwards, then-CBS News anchor Dan Rather reported that Schwarzenegger "slapped John Kerry around like a hockey puck."

The only problem: Schwarzenegger never mentioned John Kerry, not even once.

I bring it up because it's hardly news that much of the press likes...
