This will be the biggest grassroots upset in the history of electorial politics in the U.S. An upset of a sitting Speaker of the House without his party's support. Also without the support of the weak and cowardly Democratic Senators from his own state--namely Durbin and Obama.
The journalists should not be the only ones ashamed. The DCCC should also be ashamed. They told Laesch they wouldn't support him until he raised $300,000. He has raised $200,000 and they still sit on their wallets.
Laesch was 23 pts. behind 4 weeks ago and tonight it was reported that he only trails Hastert by 4pts.
Watch history being made right here in the Il-14th while the American media, the paid lapdogs of corporate wealth sleep through another one. It is up to the people and the people have heard the call--let's hope they make it to the polls that count come Nov. 7th.
