For the first time since 1947, the campaign for election for mayor of Chicago will NOT feature an incumbent.


That’s the last time Joan Rivers got laid.

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley shocked reporters and those in attendance when he announced that he will not seek reelection in 2011.

Sure, Daley and his father, Richard J. Daley, have “ruled” over the city 42 of the last 55 years, but, the current Daley felt it was time to move on.

And, as much as it looks like an act of valiance from the stalwart politician, it may have to do more with what he and those around him may have seen coming.

A Chicago Tribune poll this summer showed more than half the city did not want him to seek reelection, only 37% approved of his job and 47% disapproved. Only 31% wanted him to preside over City Hall again. Via LA Times

Hey, wouldn’t you want to go home, count your money, chillax with the fam and go through your yearbooks, too? Hell, ya.

So, I give kudos to Mayor Daley. Get outta Dodge. Write a book. Hell, write 20 books. Go work for Obama in some weird fashion, or, better yet, move to Switzerland and take up cheese making.

That’s what I’d do.

For those interested in running for mayor of Chicago.. make sure your name is Blagoavich (that was my first attempted at spelling it) Blagoyavich… ugh… *Google’s* ok it’s Blagojevich. Jeez, get some spell check on your birth certificate.
