Chicago - A local Illinois hybrid of the Bilderberg Grope is courting Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for his Vice Presidential aspirations as the Dems' official White House 2016 running partner.
A rumored $100 million war chest is sitting pretty ready to roll former city slicker Rahm regardless of the outcome of the presumed Hillary Clinton/Joe Biden presidential nomination face-off.
"Rahm's our best guess for Veep 2016," a spokesperson for Dem Bundlers Anonymous said in reply to reports that a wall of hedge fund cash will back President Obama's former Chief of Staff.
"Hell, most of those vulture funds were originally backing Amazonbotch's $19 billion Chevron lawsuit," the DBA source added, "before snatching their money back and turning tail."
53 year-old ex-Bill Clinton aide and sometime investment banker Rahm Emanuel is now these hedge funds' golden boy having impressed with some panache his unique campaigning skills honed under the tutelage of the Comeback Kid.
This included sending a dead monkfish in a box to a bewildere pollster who'd hinted in public about 'something fishy' going on with Rahm.
Media reports at that time likened the gesture to the severed horse's head scene at the start of the movie The Godfather but the publicity never harmed a single hair from Rahm Emanuel's head.
Might even get him the conspiracists' vote in 2016.
