Us Vs. Them

Tuesday, June 26, 2007
So, in browsing the news today, I came across an article entitled Dillard ripped for Obama ad. Well, having a passing interest in politics and out of curiosity more than anything else, I decided to read it.

The short of it is that Republican Illinois State Senator Dillard appeared in an ad that endorses Democrat Barack Obama, who is, incidentally, running for President of the United States in 2008. This treachery, this treason has upset the powers that be in Dillard's party. The reaction, by and large, has been along the lines of "To say I was disappointed in him would be an understatement" (as said by his predecessor.)

Dillard's response?
The bigger message being sent is that we know how to cooperate, and the current crop of Democrats needs to have an infusion of Republican input because it's just gridlock and economic chaos coming out of Springfield.
Wow.

This man appears to be a moderate. This sort of out-of-the-box thinking that might lead to cooperation in politics to achieve ends rather than power has no place in the government. Give this man the boot, immediately!

In all seriousness, though, it sounds like he was being honest, and I respect that. So - bearing in mind that I'm not endorsing anyone - you judge for yourself:
