So what's the deal, why so pissed, "House Speaker Michael Madigan drew this seat not just for a Democrat, but specifically for Duckworth."
So you redistrict the state, and make a seat just for her, an injured vet, in the burbs of Chicago, IL, against a Tea party candidate, and SHE STILL CAN'T WIN, perfect!
Eddie sounds like a whiny, leftist bitch.
I wish this were true, but if their name is John Cox, Steve Lonegan, John Raese (and on the Dem side, Myrth York & Dan Seals), they become three, four, and five-time losers because they can't take the hint after multiple defeats in a row that voters don't like them.
Regarding IL-8, my track record for predictions has been terrible there (I said there was no way Crane would lose in 2004, and said Walsh had no chance against Bean in 2010), so I'm not going to make any predictions on the race this time. I do think there's a SLIGHT chance Walsh could win it again though, and it would be hilarious if Duckworth STILL lost running in a now Dem-majority district, custom-made for her.
Life’s been good
Apparently this is the wrong Joe Walsh I was thinking off...
Democratic dreams of big wins in Illinois fading.
I’d love to see Rahm’s sock puppet lose.
Not true here in the People's Socialist RepuliK of Illannoyed. They just run for the next higher office.
Here in IL, all our congressional districts were re-drawn after the 2010 elections thanks to the Democrats controlling the IL House *again.* They purposely re-drew 5 districts in an attempt to un-seat Republicans, to try and re-gain the 5 House seats the Democrats LOST in 2010.
In all but ONE of those re-drawn districts designed to un-seat the Republican incumbent, the Republican is WINNING.
Walsh is the only one in danger to losing, to two-time loser herself, Tammy Duckworth.
The problem with Tammy Duckworth is, she took a political job from now convicted felon Rod Blagojevich, and Duckworth is accused of mis-appropriating MILLIONS of taxpayer dollars while she held that position.
Hopefully Duckworth loses AGAIN.
