Chicago is voting for mayor, and 8 candidates are running, including the current Mayor Lori Lightfoot. Lightfoot has been less than brilliant in the job. Reports out tonight indicate Lightfoot has been eliminated in the first round of voting.
Politics has been called show business for ugly people - a humorous definition variously attributed to Paul Begala, Jay Leno and others. If it were actually true, Lightfoot would have won easily. She’s always looked like a stray extra from a zombie apocalypse film.
It will be interesting to see who wins the runoff election. There is essentially zero chance of Chicago electing someone who will do a good job.
Thus its residents will get what they deserve, "gooder and harder" as the saying goes. Bottom line: karma is a (female dog).
