Lacker of lips and conservative pundit George F. Will thinks Republican candidate for the Senatorial nomination Jack Ryan is too good to be true; however, Mr Will is quite upset that African-American voters can't seem to vote for anybody but Democrats. How exquisitely unpatronizing. Ryan's internal polling reveals a double digit lead over the other Republicans; one campaign staffer for an opposing candidate laughed off the poll, asking, "Where was this taken, New Trier Township?" Besides, just how well can someone with the last name "Ryan" do in Illinois? Meanwhile, the Democratic field has grown more crowded, with stealth politician, sensible liberal and self-made ultra millionaire Blair Hull making excellent impressions across the state and city.
