Question of the day

Wednesday, Oct 31, 2012

* I told subscribers about this last night, but the Sun-Times also had a story on its blog yesterday

In a House district that is 51-percent Latino, state Rep. Angelo “Skip” Saviano said Tuesday he has lined up backing from the best-known Latino politician in Illinois.

Saviano (R-Elmwood Park), who is running against Democrat Kathleen Willis for the 77th House District, plans to announce an endorsement by U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) during an event Tuesday at Saviano’s Wood Dale campaign office.

“The leaders of the community know what I’ve done, and I’ve been working to get that message out,” Saviano told the Chicago Sun-Times.

“This just solidifies my whole record with the community,” Saviano said of Gutierrez’ endorsement.

* Here’s a photo of Democratic Congressman Gutierrez with GOP Rep. Saviano after last night’s big endorsement announcement…

* The Question: Caption?

Best comment wins a hard-to-get invitation to my election night party, which is being co-sponsored by Google. Yes, Google. I’m not making that up. I swear.

    Louie confirms that after being dropped on his head he forgot Skippy and the GOPies tried hard to slice and dice his CD so there be no Hispanic members from IL.

    “Meet Luis he’s a Democrat
    and folks wish that he’d remember that
    But Skip is a Republican
    Who’s in a war war Madigan
    What a crazy pair

    Still they’re cousins
    Identical cousins and you’ll find
    They laugh alike, they walk alike
    at times they even talk alike

    You can lose you’re mind
    When cousins, are two of a kind.”

    Did Gutierrez have to stand on the Marty Sandoval chair to look that tall?


  22. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 31, 12 @ 2:50 pm:

    I’m backing Skippy because on Family Ties he was funny…..and on Diffren’t StrokesI always liked Arnold better than Willis. Weeeee!!!
