In yet another sign of how desperate Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias has become, he's now claiming to be an "independent outsider" to avoid the tarring that Democrats in general, and especially Illinois (now that they have run our state into the ground) are expected to take in November.
If Alexi is an "independent outsider" than I'm a non-partisan, objective blogger.
I guess the irony of Alexi claiming to be independent, today of all days, is completely lost on him, since President Obama, his former basketball buddy and political godfather, is coming back once again to Chicago to try to save Alexi's campaign.
However, in the same breath, Alexi says he would stand with Dick Durbin, while his opponent, Republican Congressman Mark Kirk, would “negate every single one of Dick Durbin’s votes.”
Wow. That's maybe the best reason I've yet heard for why Illinoisans ought to be voting for Kirk over Alexi. Kirk ought to put that in his next commercial. ;-)
