Rahm Emanuel meets J3

Rahm Emanuel (D- Old Ravenswood) continues to be among the leading faces the media discusses regarding a mayoral bid in 2011. Last week it was revealed the current White House Chief of Staff commissioned a poll of voters and met with US Congressman (and potential rival for mayor) Jesse Jackson Jr.

Emanuel has attracted a host of crazies on the web, with sites discussing how he supports Israeli terror to those that just plain don’t like the man. So, it pays to be careful what you read about him. However, I thought one content summary summed up his personality: Rahm for F*CK’N MAYOR.

I don’t know if that’s a supportive site or not. In any case, while the media is buzzing about the meeting between J3 and Rahmbo, there is no word, yet, on the decisions made by our overseers.

He is very proud of The Dog's coverage of politics and schools in the neighborhood. Patrick wrote for the Times of Northwest Indiana as a stringer covering Cook County Government, for the Chicago Tribune as a stringer on the Chicago Wolves and for ChicagoNow as a writer before starting The Dog. He wrote for four years for ChiTownDailyNews.org as a media commentator and spent about 20 years in operations at city newspapers, including nine years as owner of his own distribution company. Prior to that he spent about nine years in public relations. Patrick has a Masters degree from the University of Colorado. He attended Eastern Illinois University for undergrad and Weber High School and St. Peter Canisius grammar school. The two-flat he owns was built in 1912 and has never been featured, to his knowledge, in any major motion pictures despite having a way-cool garden. Patrick purchased the property in 1994 and "couldn't afford to buy it now." His daughter is a college student in California. He lives in the house with his wife, Jane, and two cats who often sit in on his phone interviews.
