IT’S RAHM’S BIRTHDAY: And He Wants You To Know It

Want to p**s people off? Tell them it’s your birthday.

Shriek up to the nearest bartender, “It’s my birthday! Give me a free drink!” They love that.

His one tweet yesterday was an announcement that he’d be turning 55 today.

His one tweet today? Asking you to sign his birthday e-card.

What an ass.

That’s the kind of guy who’d slash a police district’s manpower by 25%, then take 5% of the remaining cops to guard his house 24-hours a day. (Not guard him and his family. Guard his house.)

Oh, wait. He did—and does—do that.

Yes, Happy birthday Rahm. Maybe this year we’ll give you 10% of our cops.
