Well, not much detail in this Daily Herald article, but it appears that the Green Party candidate for the 10th Congressional District in Illinois, Dave What's-his-name, got thrown off the ballot with a couple of his compadres by the State Board of Elections. We noted previously that the challenge was filed by a Democratic activist and attorney, so you Greenies can blame the Dems, who seem to believe in free and open elections for everyone, except when they feel threatened by some competition. No word yet as to whether the Greenies will appeal, so this may leave Mark Kirk and Dan Seals going head-to-head.
SEALS RUNS ON THE ANTI-SPRINGFIELD TICKET: Well, isn't this the pot calling the kettle black? Dan Seals, darling of the Democratic party, thinks we need "adults" in Springfield. Brilliant deduction. Here's a newsflash--the leading 'kids' are all members of the party you belong to and support.
I suppose that means you won't accept any support from those 'kids' down at the state capitol (all Democrats) that have screwed up this state so badly, including locals Terry Link, Michael Bond, Kathy Ryg, Karen May, and the big boys, Michael Madigan, Emil Jones and the soon-to-be-indicted (hopefully) Rod Blagojevich, and all the others. Hey, wasn't Barack Obama one of those kids not too long ago?
