Chicago Math: Three is Only Two
On WLS AM 89 radio in Chicago political reporter Bill Cameron featured an interview with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel that shows just why math is soooooo darn hard for politicians.
The interview was about Rahm trying to get hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to be set aside and wasted–er, bestowed–on a presidential library for Barack Obama.
In the radio clip Rahm says the following:
“I have been to both the Lincoln library, the Carter library down in Atlanta, President Clinton’s library in Little Rock, and seen the economic and cultural energy that’s created.”
So, Rahm has been to “both” of all three locations?
No wonder it is so hard for our Chicago politicians to understand that hard math stuff. When three only equals two, I guess we can see why so much money mysteriously disappears in Chicago.
I’d like to note that George W. Bush’s Presidential Library is funded by private sources. No tax dollars involved.
(Note on the WLS website, Bill Cameron helped Rahm out by editing out the “both” in Rahm’s quote in the written piece. But Rahm clearly says “both” on the sound clip aired by WLS. Even Cameron understood that the “both” made Rahm look bad, so Cameron made to help Rahm out by editing the quote to sound better. Thanks lapdog media.)
