You might have noticed the ads that FreedomWorks have here. (Is that Armey the Foul-mouthed Dick's clown car, or is that someone else's?) Well, I did since I live in IL-12 now. (Yeah, I move a lot. Too much, actually.) And it says...
Vote against Steve Enyart on November 6!See, he's naughty because he was appointed by ZOMG ROD BLAGOJEVICH CROOKED!!!! and he'll vote for ZOMG NANCY PELOSI LADY DEVIL!!!!!
One problem. You can't vote against Steve Enyart.
Because there's no Steve Enyart on the ballot.
His name is Bill Enyart.
And he's running to replace the retiring Unindicted Coconspirator Jerry Costello for the IL-12 district, extending from the Metro East to Cairo through Carbondale. He's running against Jason Plummer (R-Duhhhh), an "executive" in the family lumber business. I got a couple of his mailers this week - even though the dark money groups are taking whacks at Bill Enyart for supporting Obamacare, he has President Barack Obama - I'll repeat that for everyone. President Barack Obama - featured very prominently in his mailers, on both sides in case you didn't get it.
The job he held where he was appointed by Rod Blagarglebargle? Adjutant General of the Illinois National Guard. You know, that hotbed of Chicago cronyism, and how did someone from Belleville becaome part of the Chicago machine?
So yeah, vote "against" Steve Enyart, but vote for Bill Enyart, who is worthy of your vote.
