I'm sure someone has got there before me, but I haven't seen it, so: are we really going to pretend that it's just a coincidence that Fox is running -- and hyping -- a new show about how corrupt Chicago pols are, just as the 2012 presidential cycle gets underway with conservatives hitting the theme of "Chicago-style politics" against Barack Obama?
Mind you, this is exactly the kind of thing that tends not to matter at all, as far as electoral politics is concerned. Zilch. And for all I know, it'll be a terrific show (my friend Steven Rubio, who is usually right about these sorts of things, is recommending giving it a try). And, hey, maybe it really is just luck of the draw. Could be. Really.
