Three-term Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced today, September 4, 2018, at 10:00am that he will NOT be running for re-election!
(me, ShaRhonda, after confirming story)
Okay, I am trying to figure out the right analogy to express how big this is…
-remember in the Wizard of Oz and they killed the witch?
-remember when Beyonce announced she fired her father as her manager?
okay, think hard, ShaRhonda…
got it! remember when Michael Jordan said he was retiring from basketball, the second time, even though we, Chicagoans (and especially ShaRhonda), knew the Chicago Bulls had at LEAST two more championships in them with Jordan and Pippen?
Yeah, it is just like that announcement!
*but if all POC and low-income Chicagoans didn’t really like Michael Jordan, then my analogy would be perfect!
OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG!
