Garrett Brings Chicago-style Politics to the North Shore

Daniel Katalinic, the highest-profile witness to testify yet in the trial that's in its third week, said Robert Sorich, a former top official in the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs, told him to which political races he should deploy his volunteers. He also said Daley's former campaign manager, Greg Goldner, doled out similar orders. In return, Katalinic would hand Sorich a list of people he'd want hired or promoted in city positions, he testified.

Katalinic said his campaign organization started small but eventually grew to nearly 300 people who worked on many campaigns, from that of U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel to state Sen. Susan Garrett. Nearly all of the group were Streets and Sanitation workers or people trying to land city jobs, Katalinic said.

Now we know Bryant Gumbel hasn't ever been to a GOP convention . . . in the last 100 years.

"So try not to laugh when someone says these (Olympic athletes) are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the winter games look like a GOP convention.

Senile Democrat Defends Himself

"She's a pretty little girl."

"The day I don't look at pretty women is the day I die."

"This little girl" ought to be "happy that I observed her going out the door."

"The one who is offended is me."

Democrat State Comptroller Donald Schaefer of Maryland reacting to critism for holding up a hearing to ogle an aide and asking her to walk back and forth for him.

Congrats to Diane Meyer of Respublica for having her on target piece published in the Trib!

Come out wherever you are

A new CNN/Gallup poll shows Laura Bush with an 82 percent approval rating, which is not surprising, at least to me, because Laura is one cool woman. But the survey got me to thinking about Illinois and the state's first lady. I don't think I could even conjure up a picture of her in my mind. I know her father is important in Chicago politics and I know they don't live in the Springfield governor's mansion, choosing instead to do their sleeping in Chicago, but what about Patti Blagojevich? OK, she's interested in literacy and in-line skating and knitting, but where is she?

So Jan, can we put your voice on MUTE since you finished third in a three-way race?

“As Vice Chair, my voice will be amplified when it comes to speaking out on issues such as the war in Iraq, which I have opposed from day one and on the Republican budget, which is nothing short of immoral. . . I’ll keep you posted on the race.”

DePaul students lash out at "crazy" Judith-Rae Ross

DePaul University History students ridiculed their professor in reviews published as recently as this month on The professor, Judith-Rae Ross, is a Democrat challenger to State Representative Beth Coulson in the 17th.

Here are some of the excerpts:

"This woman is crazy, no lie. I couldn't stand her as a person and she runs a horrible classroom (it was honestly a joke), but she is so easy that she's worth taking any chance you get."

"Professor Ross is unclear, vague, and distant from reality and herself."

"This is a class where you don’t have to come and you can get an A. Very easy. Don't expect to learn anything though."

"I don't know what kind of teacher she is, but as a person she is really rude and stuck up."

For the complete list of comments you can check out the review here.

Kudos to Gordon Frederick

The ACLU is such a noble organization. They defend terrorists, murderers, rapists and child molesters, while they sue American soldiers, Christians and the president of the United States. They defend a Muslim trying to get a driver's license with her face covered, while they sue Christians to remove Nativity scenes and crosses from cemeteries.

The ACLU is supposed to protect all Americans, not just a select few. The question to the ACLU is - Who will protect us from you?

"F--- you, you Jew son of a bitch, you lousy motherf-----, go home."

A couple of lefty journalists, Andrew Kopkind and James Ridgeway, who put out a newsletter called Mayday, hired a teacher from the Gallaudet School for the Deaf to read (former Mayor) Daley's lips. The lip reader studied the TV film closely and shook his head sadly and reported that the honorable mayor of Chicago had said something along the lines of, "F--- you, you Jew son of a bitch, you lousy motherf-----, go home."

Frivolous lawsuits: Dem modus operandi

Leave it to the son of a consultant to Hillary and Obama to sue for a $1 million because he was called a drunk. The Dems and their out of control lawsuits are crippling our country.
