What's the matter, wasn't Jack Abramoff or George Ryan available?

The Republicans are a joke! They get killed on the corruption issue last year, and now here they are again pushing the same dirty retreads.

Just another sign that 2008 is going to be a bigger blowout than last year.

a joke? only because they are politicians. SO, you think the democrats have anything to offer, except race baiting and empty promises?

look around chicago. see what a democratic govt has done. the lack of fiscal responsibility, the pandering to race...everyone here elects the same, incompetent fools. Invest in Chicago public schools? HA! what a poor investment. (if we buy them more text books, does that mean they will stop carjacking us?)

I submit Stroger as a fine example, Daley too. This place just gets worse and worse. time to move.

Go BOB! Vote republican, and long live capitalism. ITs all we have to save us from the socialistic parasites.
