That whenever Chicagoland's liberal Air America radio station WCPT promotes its Jerry Springer show its only biographical reference to their on-air "personality" is that he is the former mayor of Cincinnati?

Durbin Analysis Interesting . . . Schakowsky Blast Hilarious

"After all, when it comes to marginalizing political effectiveness through the partisan fire-branding of the opposition, the Illinois delegation in Washington already has Rep. Jan Schakowsky."

Liberalism Defined by Barack Obama

Illinois Senator Barack Obama Wednesday offered a new twist on the traditional liberal mantra that poverty causes crime. According to Obama it's the federal government's job to watch over American citizens so they won't commit future crimes. According to Obama:

"Look at the crime rate in [New Orleans'] 9th Ward before the hurricane. These people were abandoned long before the hurricane."

-Barack Obama

No - thank YOU, Mary

"Thank President Clinton and former President Bush for their strong statements of support and comfort today. I thank all the leaders that are coming to Louisiana, and Mississippi and Alabama to our help and rescue. We are grateful for the military assets that are being brought to bear. I want to thank Senator Frist and Senator Reid for their extraordinary efforts. Anderson, tonight, I don't know if you've heard - maybe you all have announced it -- but Congress is going to an unprecedented session to pass a $10 billion supplemental bill tonight to keep FEMA and the Red Cross up and operating."

- Sen. Mary Landrieu (D- LA), to CNN's Anderson Cooper, Aug. 31, 2005

To which Cooper responded:

"I haven't heard that, because, for the last four days, I've been seeing dead bodies in the streets here in Mississippi. And to listen to politicians thanking each other and complimenting each other, you know, I got to tell you, there are a lot of people here who are very upset, and very angry, and very frustrated. And when they hear politicians slap - you know, thanking one another, it just, you know, it kind of cuts them the wrong way right now, because literally there was a body on the streets of this town yesterday being eaten by rats because this woman had been laying in the street for 48 hours. And there's not enough facilities to take her up. Do you get the anger that is out here?"

When O.J. finds the real killer, maybe he can find the guy who blew up the levees

Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn spent yesterday morning listening to the morning drive show on WVON and subsequently made written transcripts of what he heard guests and callers say.

Here's an excerpt:

"A [neighbor of mine] said she heard a loud boom before the water came up. I believe with all my heart [a deliberately set explosion to breach the levee] is exactly what they did. [The way the water was flowing in my neighborhood] "made no sense at all.""

It’s time to set aside hatred for Bush

Ever since President Bush won the first time, and then won re-election, I have watched in disgust the way the liberal press and the democrats have nipped at his heels on every issue.

First, he stole the election. Then I t was those pesky Christians who gave him his second win. Then it was the lies about the weapons of mass destruction (that every major country believed to be true).

Social Security, tax cuts for the rich, Cindy Sheehan and her rhetoric – blah, blah, blah. Then comes the pundits. Now it seems that President Bush is responsible for the horror of Katrina.

. . .

Did anyone ever really answer why John Kerry lost? Could it be because all he could do was criticize Bush? He had no alternative plans that made sense. No one knew what he would do on any given isuue.

I just pray that the hate for one man can be set aside for the good of the country. It has to stop and stop now.

Tribune Bias

Typical Tribune . . . the front page story "TV Images Keep Heat on Bush" contends that "In the 24/7, split-screen, blog-drenched, unfiltered America, controlling the image and controlling the language go a long way toward controlling the blame."

I thought this was going to be a fair article about the backlash that can face incumbents following a natural disaster. But as I turned the pages I see a picture of a Bush-hater holding a poster of a de-faced President Bush with a slogan "What, me worry?" orignially linked to Bush by a liberal Park Ridge woman.

Nice reporting, Tribsters. Way to get people to believe that the President doesn't care about one of the greatest natural disasters in American history.

A somber prediction

"It's only a matter of time before South Louisiana takes a direct hit from a major hurricane. Billions have been spent to protect us, but we grow more vulnerable every day. "


Just wondering . . .

Why did Bob Creamer make a deal and plead guilty? Could the plea have included getting his wife off the hook? After all, it was the Jan Schakowsky who in March of last year said “My husband was innocent seven years ago, and he is innocent today”. . . . And it is the same Jan Schakowsky who formerly served on the board of Illinois Public Action.

Just wondering.

10th Congressional Democrats Trained by Convicted Felon

A suburban Democratic organization, the 10th Congressional Democrats, has admittedly organized a “training” seminar conducted by the convicted felon, Bob Creamer. Creamer, the husband of U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), pleaded guilty yesterday to a federal bank fraud charge for orchestrating a complex check-kiting scheme involving his liberal agency, Illinois Public Action.

Earlier this year, the so-called “10th Dems” organized the training in which Democratic candidates “who are considering future runs for elective office” could learn from insiders such as Creamer. As stated on their website, the 10th Congressional Democrats is a group with an objective to “Recruit & train new precinct committeemen/women”.

Today, many people are questioning the type of political tactics that convicts and political hacks impart in trainings such as the one recently held by the 10th Dems. The number of complaints of henchman tactics in the collar counties has risen in the last several election cycles.

The 10th Congressional Democrats’ website lists an address as a Post Office Box in Deerfield, IL. Multiple calls to a phone number listed on their site went straight to voicemail without ringing. At this time, there is no confirmation that the 10th Dems’ involvement with a convicted felon has forced the group's officers to terminate the group.
