Don’t worry, beleaguered citizens of Chicago, the Tiny Dancer is on the job!
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who flew to Washington, D.C. on Thursday, canceled planned meetings with cabinet officials and was scheduled to head back to the city, a spokesman said.
“Senseless and brazen acts of violence have no place in Chicago and betray all that we stand for,” the mayor said in a statement. “The perpetrators of this crime will be brought to justice and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
Sure they will. Then there will be another weekend of carnage. Meanwhile, what’s he doing meeting with Obama cabinet members? Doesn’t he work in Chicago? It occurs to us that if he had any clue he’d have been back in town about 10 hours ago. Guess we’ll never know what he was up to, just like Obama on the night of Benghazi. Strange, too, considering we can find no mention prior to today that he was in DC. Oh well, we’re sure it’s all on the up and up.
Here’s the idiot on Twitter. Not even mailing it in, he’s tweeting it in.
Meanwhile, there were more kneejerk calls for gun control.
Rep. Jan Schakowsky, a Democrat from Illinois, said the shooting shows the need for Congress to act on gun control.
“Congress must act now to pass gun safety legislation that protects our children, families and our communities,” Schakowsky said in a statement Friday morning.
No mention is made of all the laws already on the books and the failure to enforce them.
