    Several of us from Chicago keep saying that the present administration is just practicing politics as they know it, 'The Chicago Way'. Here's a typical example that illuminates what they learned here:

    How to Dance the Irish Jig, Chicago Style - The New Editor

    Getting old? It's always been this way. Paraphrasing Mike Royko on Daley I, 'he didn't have any knowledge of the 'corruption', but when the corruption was brought to light, he'd cut them off at the knees.'

    On the other hand, that the politicos are corrupt is assumed, only when they are going to go down for indictment are they cut off. So, there's zero surprise to us that Obama has all these tax deadbeats, they just pay their taxes-no penalties-and go on their merry way.
