Remember to vote tomorrow!

In Illinois we are voting for governor…the incumbent Rod Blagojevich (D) or Judy Baar Topinka (R)

Though both have somewhat tainted records, and also have had to deal with allegations of corruption (and I am not thrilled with the choice, regardless)…I must choose one.

Eeeenie meeeenie miney mo….

well must go with the Dem even though I am not thrilled about it. Topinka’s associations with past Governor, George Ryan (R) (who is going to jail soon on racketeering and fraud convictions)concerns me more than the yet unproven accusations of Blago’s alleged political hiring.

I hate having to pick what I feel is the lesser of two evils. I would love to be able to vote for a candidate who I can at least have respect for.

Well, the 15 million dollars Blagojevich spent worked. People thought that Judy was "Ryan's Treasurer" without considering that Judy has been "Blagojevich's treasurer" for four years too.

Ah, the power of negative advertising.

Democrats talk about throwing the bums out and supporting centrists, but that's just a pose to make themselves feel tolerant and openminded. Topinka was an actual centrist (she was pro-choice and pro-gay), and Blagojevich is going to be indicted during the next four years, but that won't stop people from voting for The Party in the People's Republic of Illinois.

The same thing is seen in leftist attitudes toward richers. Supposedly inherited wealth gives mediocre people unfair advantages, so we need to level things out -- Bush is held up as an example. Okay, then, why are Democrats supporting people like Jesse Jackson Jr., Todd Stroger, Lisa Madigan, Richard M. Daley, and Dan Hynes? I guess nepotism is okay in Illinois if it is for the proletariat, ahem, "working class."

Fantastic result for America and the world. Problem is the 'village idiot' is still there for two years and is still beating his war drum.

Someone should put him out of his misery! Cheers!

Jason, and maybe Topinka will join him in jail? She may be a moderate, but she was a Ryan buttsniffer. I had to choose the lesser of two crooks.
