· I forgot to link to this yesterday, but here is the Tibune’s congressional endorsement list.

· Topinka blasts the governor for raiding special funds.

· The Crestwood library board badges story refuses to die.

· Gidwitz profiled.

· Leach celebrates a decade at WMAY. Congratulations!

· Cleanups happening, Weinberger says, but you’d never know it.

· Good political advice from OneMan.

· Claypool scores a hundred grand from Bruce Rauner.

· Frank was good in his day, but I’m sticking with Ken on this one.

· More later.

· Vice President Dick Cheney will travel to Addison next month to raise money for Sen. Peter Roskam’s 6th District congressional campaign. Cheney’s national polling numbers are horrendous, but his boss is still doing well with Illinois Republicans. Also, check out this poll if you have time.

· This was pretty much expected, but early voting starts slowly. UPDATE: Check out Texas’ top early voting counties in 2004.

· Latest SurveyUSA trackers for Durbin and Obama.

· No pay hikes.

· Fireworks at Ryan trial.

· Sun-Times editorializes about Farrakhan ally on guv’s panel.

    The 300+ tax and fee increases are running business out of Illinois, “but I won’t rescind them all”. So, she’s telling us that some of them were good ideas?

    Someone might want to tell JBT to look at yesterdays poll; I’m not real sure that she is still the front-runner, nor the one that stands the best chance at taking Rod out.

    Ahh, a return to the glory days; I would have left that comment out.

    Dan Lipinski - The Nuanced Candidate.
    John T. Kelly is NOT nuanced; he can give you his address! I’m voting for Kelly!

    I can’t wait for Little Louie to crack open that super-sized can of worms!

    Rich - you should post a link to the Tribune’s flash photo montage of the Berhoff - it’s really cool.

    Guitierrez = Don Quixote minus the horse and the fictional damsel in distress. I wonder if the Mayor appreciates the Governor’s new partnership with the congressman.

    Berghoff I meant

    Rich,

    Can you give us some Republican primary polling numbers. Please!!!!!!!!


  7. - Rolo Tomasi - Tuesday, Feb 28, 06 @ 10:57 am:

    Cheney coming to town to raise money for Roskam. I picture Roskam in buckskin presenting a 50 cal to Cheney as the audience ducks under the tables.


  8. - Pete Granata - Tuesday, Feb 28, 06 @ 11:24 am:

    Is the presentation after they have shared their military experiences with the audience?


  9. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Feb 28, 06 @ 11:27 am:

    Can wait til they start to bring the skeletons out of Luis’ closet.


  10. - donchicago48 - Tuesday, Feb 28, 06 @ 1:56 pm:

    Look for Luis to dominate the er uh “immigrant” vote ;)


  11. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Feb 28, 06 @ 9:44 pm:

    donchicago48:

    Given your posts on the immigration issue here and elsewhere, surely you know that Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens, not immigrants. Despite the fact that he’s a natural born citizen, I agree that Gutierrez will get lots of the “immigrant” vote of which you speak.

    What exactly was your “er,uh” point?
