It's been awhile since we talked about the Senate race. Rather than stir it up ourselves, we'll just let the truth-seekers from both wings duke it out: here's The Truth about Keyes and the Obama Truth Squad. Also, "Chicago Chow Girl" has set up a Chicago Democrat's Toolkit to help those who'd like to volunteer. (Anyone know of an equivalent for the local Republicans? Email ah@ this domain.)
