What is this, Democrat Idol?

pick any ole corrupt black in chicago with a big mouth and nothing substantial to say. who would know the difference?
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 :)

So many scumbags. So little time.
Yeah, I’m sure he is a real tough act to follow.
My vote is for Big Bird.
An empty chair would be an improvement.
Isn’t there a Jesse Jackson III?

The Democrats should just go down to the zoo and pick something...
i think the title is not accurate, i had heard no matter what they didn’t want a white person to win the seat, no matter how well qualified they were.
What they can’t find a crook more crooked than him.....REALLY? WOW
No wait I got it...........can’t find anyone with enough cash to buy his seat?
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!
Is Marion Barry out of rehab?
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.
