UPDATE: Twitter reaction of the day, via MKH: "@samyoungman Daley not running for reelection. Rahm-shaped hole in the wall of the West Wing."
UPDATE II: The Left's anti-Rahm campaign is already underway. A group calling itself the "Progressive Change Campaign Committee" is urging Illinoisans to sign a petition that reads:
"I will not support Rahm Emanuel in any future election for Congress, Mayor of Chicago, Governor, or other office. He sold us out on the public option and is a weak Democrat who caves instead of fighting conservatives and corporate power. We won't forget the choices you've made, Rahm."Yeah, that squishy pseudo-Liberal has really been acquiescing to the right wing constantly, hasn't he? You show him, Progressives!
Epistemic closure, anyone?
