Hope, Change and...

..."Who's your Daddy?"...
There's an old joke about the loosey-goosey ethical climate of Chicago and Illinois politics:

The devil promises boundless fortune and perpetual re-election to a prominent local officeholder.

"The only thing is that you must give your immortal soul for all time," the devil warns.

"What's the catch?" the politician asks.

"You are SO NOT IMPORTANT to me."
Shhshhh, shshhh, baby... it'll be alright.
