So, the Great Lakes gang-Mecca known as Chicago scored the NATO gig. Gauging by the heavy metal fencing and the ground swell of protests already bubbling up, I’m thinking the sleepy Los Angeles community of Watts might have been a safer venue. Either way, in Obama’s America of sanctioned thuggery thinly veiled by the First Amendment, any NATO leader who misses the riots of his own country should feel right at home in ours. Especially in Chicago. And the city’s mayor, Rahm Emmanuel, couldn’t be more proud.
