    Who gives a crap what the source is, that's some sleazy stuff to campaign on that. If that's the best you can come up with ....

    I swear, a guy can't win with these fucking Republicans. The guy just needed to get off, and charging the taxpayers for phone sex is a lot more fiscally responsible than charging them for an entire hooker.

    You don't have to go to either extreme. Just buy an f-ing cigar and go from there.

    Just out of curiosity ... how much is a half a hooker?

    Did the voice-over guy sound familiar to anyone else? Does he do beer commercials or something?

    I, for one, do not want to vote for anyone who has dialed a wrong number.

    Who's to say the 800 number was the "wrong" number? He might have just been crank calling the criminal justice center. :D

    I think the Peoria Pundits would be a great name for a minor league team.

    Speaking of negative campaigning, it seems like EVERY candidate in Illinois is using the tag line, "What Was He (She) Thinking?" That's thanks to Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich's tagline for Republican opponent Judy Baar Topinka, whom the ads state wants your grandparents dead, your injured veterans permanently maimed, and your children diseased. Or something like that. Though political advertising, I've also learned that in the race for Henry Hyde's old seat, Tammy Duckworth wants to raise your taxes while letting illegal immigrants take over your block, and her opponent, Peter Roskam, wants to ban every book ever published and personally climb up your uterus to protect your zygote. What were they thinking? (Oops, sorry.)
