Of course Daley's temporal and pronoun confusion brings to mind Sarah Palin.

"There is no clothes audit, except for when the belly of the plane got cleaned out, all the piles of the clothes that they had in there, they wanted me at my house to go through it and box things up and send it," she told the New York Times about accusations of keeping campaign clothing. "There's no attorneys coming up, and there's no need for it or anything else. But that'll be nice to have that chapter closed because, as I said from Day 1, I never have asked for anything. I'm not, I'm not keeping anything either."

 

But Daley also invents words like the Decider in Chief. When brother Bill dropped out of the governor's race in 1991 and the press asked the mayor if he would face greater scrutiny he said, "Scrutiny? What else do you want? Do you want to take my shorts? Give me a break. " Go scrutinize yourself! I get scrootened every day, don't worry, from each and every one of you."

 

The Mayor is also a fan of draw-your-own-conclusion Speak like saying, "If a rat is on your sandwich, you hope to know it before. If a mouse is on your salad, it's common sense," about a health department crackdown on restaurants. Hello?

 

Of course Rahm Emanuel is a native Chicagoan. And his speech will probably get more down home and shirtsleeves as he warms some bleachers at Cubs and Sox games and forgets the Beltway.

 

But comparisons with Daley might be brutal. In addition to replacing Richard as mayor, Emanuel was replaced by Bill Daley in the White House as Obama's new chief of staff!

 

Hopefully he won't be too scrootened.
