Rahm Rally Draws 200 Angry Hacks

Are you serious - people are protesting the court ruling blocking Rahm Emanuel from the ballot in the Chicago mayoral race? Machine hacks?

The rally itself fizzled out after 10-15 minutes, with most in the crowd heading either home or to the Emanuel campaign offices to work the phone banks. What was left behind were the zealous Emanuel supporters, the ill-informed sound bite repeaters and a media scrambling for any late footage it could get.

It was a small rally overall, with about 200 sign-waving protesters alternating between chants of "Let Rahm Run" and "Let Chicago Decide." Which is probably as best as they can do on short notice.
