    I will be very glad when this election cycle is over. Some of the TV and radio commercials for the different congressional candidates are attacks against their opponent, either their political, business or sometimes even their personal life. Candidates, I wish you'd use those spots to tell me why I should vote for you instead of your opponent. The ones between Joe Walsh and Tammy Duckworth seem particularly nasty to me and they've gotten worse the past few days. 14 days till the election. I find that I'm avoiding the television so I don't have to see the ads. I should listen to CD's in the car, too, instead of the radio.

    Well... Jesse Jackson, Jr. has submitted his resignation and acknowledged that he is under investigation. Only in Illinois. In any other state he would have not run again and someone else would be making arrangements to take over his district right now. But not in Illinois -- he was re-elected despite barely mounting a campaign, so now there will be some kind of special election to replace him, and people who didn't run for the office on the November ballot will try to get it now. We might be the Land of Lincoln but I think we are also the land of SNAFU politics.
