The Rules In Chicago Illustrated by the Six Photographs Below

From an email circulating on The Internet:
Rod Blagojevich is the former Illinois Governor who tried to sell Obama's seat in Congress. Obama was asked by the press if he had ever met Gov. Rod Blagojevich. He replied: "I only saw Rod Blagojevich one time... And that was in the stands and from a distance at a Chicago Bears Football Game." Of course, you can believe him -- he's our President. The picture below? That's irrelevant.

Note: Rahm Emanuel has replaced Daley as Mayor! And Daley's brother has replaced Rahm Emanuel as a chief adviser to the president.

Rahm Emanuel, the new Mayor of Chicago
You have to understand "the world according to Chicago". Chicago is almost a completely different country when it comes to politics, with a different set of morals and language. There are three rules and a Prime Directive.
  • Rule #1. No matter what you see, hear, or do -- you don't know anybody & you know nothing!
  • Rule #2. If you capture something on tape or camera -- it reveals nothing!
  • Rule #3. If you know what everybody knows in Chicago -- you still know nothing.
The Prime Directive: No matter what the vote, Democrats win the election.
Now pay close attention! It's very simple. Remember, you know nothing. These two? They never met! Obama said they didn't.

Strangers in the Night
These two? Who are they?

Santa Claus, left; Easter Bunny, right
The guy on the left? He's Santa Claus. And the guy on the right, he's the Easter Bunny! That's all you need to know. These two? Don't ask.

Tweedle Dee, left; Tweedle Dum, right
Remember Jimmy Hoffa? He knew too much. Where is he now? Don't ask. Do you understand? Don't look at these pictures! Remember, you've already forgotten them.
Do you understand? They don't know each other and they never met! How is that possible? Because Obama said so! And don't! you! fergit! it! (As a wise old Cartoon Character used to say!)
P.S. If you pass this on to your friends: you know nothing and they will know nothing. So how's that "Hope and Change" working out for you?
The content is unchanged from the original email. I fixed some spelling errors, formatting errors, capitalization errors, paragraphing errors, removed unnecessary ellipses, added captions to the photos, and changed the crazy internet email font to something sensible.

  1. One thing that I was unable to verify is whether the dates on the photos precede the time of Obama's quote.
