Washington (CNN) -- Politics is serious business -- but not all the time.
A big f------ deal
The Atlantic.com has a Twitter exclusive:
"It was the best fake Twitter account ever, deftly satirizing Rahm Emanuel, and elevating the Tweet and the f-word to the level of literature. But the mystery writer was never revealed - until now."
That man: Dan Sinker, founder of the Punk Planet 'zine, journalism professor and avid Chicago political watcher.
Some @MayorEmanuel gems, slightly edited because it's not very family-friendly:
"Turns out crowdsurfing your way up to a stage takes a long f------ time. OK, victory speech--let's f------ do this"
"Driving around in Axelrod's Civic, doing loops around the block outside Chico's offices, my a-- hanging out of the missing window, laughing"
It appears that Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in need of a geography refresher course.
On Monday, the Republican governor told reporters that "Juarez is reported to be the most dangerous city in America," Politico reports.
The only problem? Juarez is a city in Mexico, across the border from El Paso.

No "Dancing" for Christine
