    OT Politics - You Can

    Gentle Readers:

    The Illinois primary election was held a week ago today to determine which democrat and republican candidates will run against each other in the 2010 general election. To no-ones surprise, every single successful dem was from Crook County or within a stone’s throw.

    Out of a collection of interesting contests, the most interesting of all was the outcome of the dem’s Lieutenant Governor race. The surprise winner was Scott Lee Cohen. Cohen is a Chicago pawnbroker. His campaign was self-financed to the tune of approximately two million dollars.

    Last Wednesday morning – about twelve hours after the polls closed, Mr. Cohen started receiving what became a blizzard of press coverage. Among Mr. Cohen’s other ‘qualifications’, was a 2005 arrest for allegedly holding a knife to the throat of his live-in girlfriend. The former girlfriend was and remains a “massage therapist”. They met while she was on the job performing her ‘services’.

    In addition to rubbing Mr. Cohen the wrong way, she has an arrest record for prostitution. At one point she rubbed an undercover cop the wrong way too.

    But that’s not all… Cohen is an admitted former steroid user and wife abuser. He’s also reportedly a dead beat dad owing at one time something like $54,000 in unpaid alimony/child support.

    Well, all the ‘honorable’ dems (Chicken Dick Durbin for example) immediately squealed that Cohen was unfit to serve. Under withering party pressure, Cohen announced Sunday evening that he was pulling out of the race.

    I’m just speculating here but my guess is someone named Guido, Vito, or Giuseppe quietly told Mr. Cohen that he (Cohen) could pull out of the race or have his corpse pulled out of the Chicago River. OTOH, the party machine may have simply bought him. Either way, Mr. Cohen’s selection has been nullified and he will be replaced on the ticket.

    So there you have it. Once again, a majority of ignorant democrat voters have embarrassed the whole damn state by picking this goof ball Cohen only to have their party leadership run him off.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    I think a New Jersey Democrat named Torricelli made this up.

    I can't believe that this guy went so far and noone knew of his past. In central llinois we have a representative who had his divorce decrees's frozen from the public for 25 years. That was about 30 years ago. The reason for the freeze was the fact that he had beaten his first wife to the point of unconsciousness and he took her to the hospital thinking he had killed her. I know all this crap because the emergency room nurse quit nursing and let that little titbit out one evening when a group of us saw this worm in a restaurant. Remember the email that told about all those people who had judgements against them, all those who had gone bankrupt, and had b een charged with domestic violence and batteries? Those are the ones' that have fooled the rest of us to vote them in office. Nice group of beggars aren't they? Not one of them does a damned thing for those who elected them without holding out their hands. Dan
