    Actually, every place that has a university tends to be blue. Except Springpatch.

    Interesting thought. . .  The GOP truly and completely fucked up by refusing to pass a farm bill for so long. Most of the red parts of the state are rural farms. (although, I never heard of urban farming before Detroit started this last year) They have to be pissed at how "their party" screwed them. If their memories are long enough.

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

    •  I'm in IL too. Kirk is not a typical Republican. (0+ / 0-)

      His own staff describes him as a progressive on social issues but a fiscal conservative.  You may have noticed that he was one of the few R senators that voted to extend the debt limit.  So, from time to time he comes through for us.

      I'm more worried about flipping the idiots we have in Congress (Republicans) from IL.  Holy cow, Roskam and Rodney Davis have to go in November.  I strongly believe that we can beat them fairly easily.  And, that high roller, Schock. His seat was bought and paid for by our billionaire polluter bros.
