Even though a permit has been denied, even though they have been told they cannot have audio-visual equipment in the park, and even though they have been told they cannot use the band shell, the Gasbag Movement will have its rally in Grant Park. Why? According to local comedian and organizer, Gasbagger in Chief Angie McMethane, Facebook says it is OK. If enough people want something on Facebook, they will get it, in spite of the law. Facebook rules.

Gasbaggers all over the country are having satellite rallies to watch and participate in the Gasbag rally in DC being held by the leaders of the Gasbag Movement- comedians Steven Cobert and Jon Stewart. The Gasbag movement is taking off nation wide. Gasbaggers are planning town hall meetings, protest marches and rallies, and even getting candidates to run for public office. There are Gasbag Patriots and a Gasbag Express- an old school bus painted in psychedelic colors- scheduled to tour the land.
Gasbaggery is the new political rage. Whoopie cushions- their symbol- are flying off the shelves. It appears Gasbaggery is no passing movement. So, today, in spite of being denied permits and permission by the city, Gasbaggers will fill Grant Park. I will bet the city does nothing. Gasbaggers will not even be responsible for any clean up and damage. There will be no arrests, even if they disrupt traffic. Josy Weis is too busy looking for a clue to be bothered by a bunch of Gasbaggers. The mayor is chuckling. He is retiring, so what does he care about Gasbaggery.
Folks, we now have an open city where people can just do whatever they want, when they want, how they want, no matter what they are told. Permits and fees? Quoting Gasbagger spokesperson Richard Cranium- “We don need no stinking permits and fees!”
Facebook and Gasbaggery now rules our town. Gasbaggery is the new radical anarchy. Could the Gasbag Movement be the death of the Democratic Machine? Will the machine be hung on its own petard?
So, if you are not doing anything between 11AM and 2PM, take the kiddies to see history being made. Go to Grant Park and witness the birth of the Chicago Gasbag Movement. Just don’t get too close.
