    I'm stunned.
    I bet Rhambeaux is on the phone, right now, with Obama crying: "You said you were going to fix this!!!".

    It takes a huge dose of arrogance to try and pull this stunt. What type of fool tries to run for office when he doesn't qualify under the basic requirements and everyone knows it? ... never mind...

    Yeah I'm pretty surprised he went on this long, it occurred to me that he might not meet requirements but I just assumed he'd addressed any issues since he wanted to run there.

    As bad as Rahm would have been as a mayor, she's even worse.

    Wow, this was...unexpected. Rahm Emanuel's chances of winning the election are still hovering around 55% on InTrade as of now, indicating that this may not be the end of the fight. Those odds are, however, about 40% lower than they were yesterday.

    I doubt this will make it to the Supreme Court.

    It will go to the State Supreme court... who will uphold the decision. Rahm will not have time to get it to the US Supreme Court.

    fyi

    rahm is a bitter and self aggrandizing back stabber

    more than once he's been accused of leaking to wapo's dana milbank who obediently types it all up:

    “Obama's first year fell apart in large part because he didn't follow his chief of staff's advice on crucial matters. Arguably, Emanuel is the only person keeping Obama from becoming Jimmy Carter.”

    Dana Milbank - Why Obama needs Rahm at the top - washingtonpost.com

    Rumbling Over Rahm - The Daily Beast

    i never understood why the white house kept the little punk around, he was NOT effective as congressional liason, he was crass and cruel and classless

    and he's certainly not loyal

    his gripe was always the same---he wanted pragmatics, he thought the admin was too idealistic (particularly on the public option)

    it was this kind of thinking that led gibbs to suggest that the professional left, ie, the bloggers and journolisters (led by ezra klein) be drug tested

    go, carol!

    Finally, good decision. If you don't live where you are running, then you don't get to run. End. Of. Discussion.
