I received this from an e-mail friend of mine. I don’t know its origin but it’s funny—and so very accurate concerning Chicago politics. When the Blago “Pay-for-Play” scandal erupted, Obama danced and said he didn’t know anything about it. He’d not met Blago.
In the era of snark comes this message.
I don't know anything!!! Please, you did NOT get this from me! Is that perfectly clear? To understand the next 4 years, you have to understand the world according to Chicago. While it is a city in Illinois, it is also a completely different country, with a whole different set of morals and language. There are only three rules which anybody can understand. You don't even need an attorney to understand them and if you need an attorney, well... you know too much... so look out for Rule #3! RULE #1...No matter what you see, hear, or do, you don't know anybody and you don't know nothing! RULE #2...If you capture something on tape or camera, it doesn't reveal nothing! RULE #3...If you know what everybody knows in Chicago, well,... you still don't know nothing. Now pay close attention! We don't want to have to say this more than once. It's very simple...we'll illustrate. Remember, you know nothing. These two? They don't know each other! They said they didn't.
The fellas in the background of this picture? Well, what fellas? We don't see nothing!
The guy on the left? For all you know he's Santa Claus. And the guy on the right...well, he's the Easter Bunny! That's all you need to know.
Go to your eye doctor...your eyes are lying to you! Ca'pish?
Remember Jimmy Hoffa! He knew too much and now, well, now no one knows where he is. Is the big picture clear? Not these pictures! Remember, You’ve already forgot them…
Now, ain’t that simple? They don’t know each other, ’cause they said so! and
neither do we!
And don’t forget it!
