That's right - Rhymefest joins the crowded smoke-filled (chat)room for election night coverage. We decided this year to push the envelope and have a radio show that delivers election results and analysis and also create another show that is just on-line. We are embedding a chat room on this page and having our pal Steve Edwards moderate. It's going to be a lively, energetic night with election results from the reporters in the field, candidates logging-in to talk about their races and panelists shooting from the hip, creating must-see internet. 7pm-10pm. Longer if necessary. Then we'll all meet up at the Billy Goat afterwards. And not the crappy Navy Pier one.
We've added a few more people to the list, including Chicago's own hip-hop superstar Rhymefest
. We've also secured good, healthy "yes, unless we say no at the last minute" confirmations from
Governor Pat Quinn
, Cook County Board President Todd Stroger
, 5th District Congressman Mike Quigley
, Cook County Board Commissioner Tony Peraica
, Congresswoman (9th district) Jan Schakowsky
, Senate candidates Alexi Giannoulias
and David Hoffman
and many, many more.
Not to mention all the editors and reporters from your favorite sites. And not to mention you. Wait, I mentioned you, didn't I? It's what election night is supposed to be. And at the end, hopefully you will be informed and entertained and we'll feel like this:
