Behold The Chicago Way, Massa Edition

Whoa. The Massa resignation has the markings of a coordinated hit by Rahm and Axelrod.

“Mine is now the deciding vote on the health care bill, and this administration and this House leadership have said, 'they will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill, and now they’ve gotten rid of me and it will pass.’ You connect the dots,” Massa said Several times during the broadcast Massa raised the prospect of rescinding his resignation if national news media picked up on his story of being railroaded out of office by Democratic leaders.

And therein lies the problem. How interested will the MSM be to cover this story, knowing that an uproar from the great unwashed could lead to the guy coming back? Hell, the Mediacrats are as interested in helping Teh Won secure a victory as the Party  Rank And File, and mentioning this dirty detail would get inthe way of Obamacare's passage. As Ace has always stated, you don't need to spin that which you don't cover.

Between offering a judgeship to the brother of a wavering Democrat, and forcing out of office a "No" Vote, thus lowering the margin the bill needs for passage (now, all the Democrats need are 216 votes, not the more dicey 217), this is how the Chicago Way will get what they want. Just be on the lookout for military bases, contract awards/revocations, mysterious arrests in nightclubs, surprise tax audits, etc.
