Rahm Emanuel is out of the D.C. bubble and back home campaigning for mayor in Chicago.

So, whose brilliant idea was it to have him create a media logjam and block commuters trying to get to work?

I’m sure there were more than a few “$%%^&^! you!’s” muttered under the breath.

Like when Rahm yanks this poor dude through the throng of journalists so he can get to the escalator:

Welcome back, Rahm.

Chicagoans: Watch out. He’s planning more logjams and obstructionism near you:

Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel said he plans to hit Chicago’s grocery stores, train stops, “bowling alleys and hot dog stands” as he prepares to run for mayor of the nation’s third-largest city.

Emanuel announced Sunday in a video posted on his website, ChicagoforRahm.com, that he’s preparing to run. He had been careful not to launch his candidacy from Washington and headed to Chicago immediately after his resignation was announced by President Barack Obama on Friday.

In the video, Emanuel said he’s embarking on a “Tell It Like It Is” listening tour of Chicago.

“As I prepare to run for mayor, I’m going to spend the next few weeks visiting our neighborhoods — at grocery stores, L stops, bowling alleys and hot dog stands,” Emanuel said. “I want to hear from you — in blunt Chicago terms — what you think about our city, and how the next mayor and you can make it better.”
