    playing havoc with his thinking. He looked horrible, and sounded weak and disjointed. The Rush I know (and gave a service award to 15 yrs ago) was active, vibrant, well spoken and emotional. I don't know what sort of cancer he is fighting, but the cancer is winning. I do know that there were serious questions of whether he had the energy to even run this time. There was talk of "replacing" Rush with his wife. (a la Todd Stroger, Lisa Madigan, and other family affairs)

    He was not making sense, and he was definitely not himself. Even so, what he said was foolish, petty and counter-productive, which surprised me.

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

    •  Yes, thanks for the update on Bobby (0+ / 0-)

      What I saw today at the presser was not the Bobby Rush I had come to know and respect 20 years ago.  I did not recognize the man who defended this Burris pick in a rambling, slurred, incoherent, and inexplicable speech.
