Well, a week from tonight the good people of the state of Illinois will annoint--uh, vote for--yeah right: Democratic senatorial candidate Barak Obama. The annointed Crown Prince will win, mainly because those who run the Republican party in this state are morons. Absolute morons!!! A crow could run the party better than these dopes. For those who aren't familiar with the story, Jack Ryan, Obama's original opponent, was yanked due to sexual indiscretions. So who did they pick to run? Alan Keyes--what a weirdo--who was toted in from the state of Maryland, rented an apartment in the Chicago area, and was placed on the ballot. I suppose, stupidly, the Republican leadership figured they needed a black guy to run against Obama? What fools. Another candidate for the primary who lost out to Ryan (second place) was Jim Oberweis, a wealthy biz dude who was outspoken about illegal immigration. Many people resonated with his cause. And I imagine he could have financed his own campaign--but NO, those in power in Republican Milquetoast Moron-Land (Illinois-Land of Lincoln, no less) couldn't actually place a respected local person on the ballot--because they didn't back him, and THEY are in charge. And I bet they were afraid of his cause, illegal immigration. To the IL Republican party, winning isn't important apparently. Backing candidates they choose rather than listening to what the people want is more important. What fools, what losers--and the Republicans DESERVE to lose. In IL, the ill state, we will have two Democratic senators: Eddie Haskell (aka Dick Durbin) and Crown Prince, His Highness, Destined for the Presidency, Barak Obama, the Politically Correct Monarch with All the Answers. It's almost as if the Republicans are in cahoots with the Obama people--did they, too want this Crown Prince to be anointed? It's nauseating to see somebody slide into office like a prince simply because he's black, from Harvard, and is a U of Chi grad. And he's essentially running unopposed. So on Nov. 2 as we break out the Holy Oil in Illinois for the annointing and shine up the state's scepter and ermine collar, let's toast the KING, His Royal Highness, the annointed and chosen one, Barak Obama. I have nothing against Obama; don't really know much about him. But it's shameful to say you're a Republican in this state! This guy is essentially running unopposed; everybody knows Keyes is a wacky guy! This is HUGE state--and we used to have one Republican senator. But no more. Uh-oh, better learn to genuflect. I hate living in a Monarchy. Sux.
