"Can anyone name the last statewide office held by a conservative? Dont say Peter Fitzgerald. He was a libertarian who only beat Carol Mostly Fraud because he had his own (family) money. When Fitz retired after a single term, due to lack of popular support (including conservatives ) we got ... (wait for it) ... BARACK OBAMA."
You don't know much about IL politics, do you ?

His description of Fitzgerald does sound like something he made up off the top of his head. The “only beat Carol Mostly Fraud because he had his own (family) money.” is a typical mainstream media talking point they came up, after they had egg on their faces from predicting Fitzgerald didn't have a snowball's chance of hell of winning. The rest of it is something out of the Twilight Zone. Everyone knows Fitz had very high approval ratings among “likely votes” at the time he announced his retirement. And Libertarian? Never heard his politics described in such a way. That was out of left field. It would be like referring to Mark Sanford as a “Green Party type”

Would you care to specify where I am wrong or are ad hominem arguments all you are capable of?
