How’s about Bobby Seal jr? Oh, that’s right, he’s dead too. How’s about Angela Davis? Oh, she’s dead too. How about Jane Fonda? I am sure Chicago politics can arrange it so her home address is in Chicago :)

Hard to find a race-baiting hate monger that wants government to order every breath in life.

Former Congressman Mel Reynolds, of course. A far left black pedophile will be greeted with open arms by the Congressional Black Caucus. The Jackson Family will be so proud!

There’s a ton of racist black thugs in Chicago. Open the phonebook and pick a name.

What? No interviews at Cook County Jail?

The Dems have to think out-of-the-box.

I was thinking more along the lines of a prison.

Have Baraq pardon Blago and give it to him.
He deserves it.

She'll be disappointed to hear that.

I’m sure they can find another criminal to take his place. They are prob trying to upgrade and find an openly racist black woman criminal to take his place.

What about Barack Obama? I know most freepers don’t agree with his views, but I’m sure they would be in favor of him getting the seat.
