« Kirk Enters Senate Race; Can He Survive Primary? Roland Burris bows out of the 2010 US Senate race »

Illinois Thu Jul 09 2009

Birkett versus Madigan, the Rematch might go a little something like this:

Birkett: She's not a prosecutor.

He's a loony prosecutor *cough* Rolando Cruz, war protestors *cough*.

She's soft on corruption *cough*dad is Mike Madigan*cough*.

Hey, I remember this guy; he's the guy I beat eight years ago.

Yeah, I remember that election; hey, who was at the top of your ticket that year?

You mean the guy I tried to get suspended from office?

Yeah, the guy who the Supreme Court laughed at you when you tried to get suspended from office.

Uh...All the women, who are independent, throw your hands up at me!

All the white dudes--uh, wait, nevermind...hey, isn't your dad Mike Madigan?

Sorry, I couldn't hear you over the balloon drop.
