    but if you knew the candidates running against the crooked Dems, one still has to choose the crook.  the thing is, if we had a legitimate opponent and real competition, I think both sides would clean up. I've seen it too often. if there is an opposing candidate, sometimes not even that, it's someone who doesn't even have a working email or the nutcasery becomes obvious at the lwv forums or the simple unpreparedness shows the opposition party is just throwing a body or name at the race as a space filler.  

    sometimes I spend more time reading the comments than the diaries. no offense to diarists: thanks for the launch pad.

      as I was born and raised there, but it happens in Chicago too.

      A lot.

      And I agree with teacherken here. A healthy and viable GOP is necessary for a proper functioning democratic republic and to minimize corruption (I say "minimize" because I also feel that x amt. of corruption is necessary for any government to run).
