A CNN poll has the Democrat and Republican parties in a statistical dead heat when it comes to whom the public thinks could do a better job of running the country. The poll showed 40% of those polled thought the Democrats would do a better job of running the country, while 39% thought the Republicans would do a better job. Personally I am underwhelmed by the efforts of both political parties.
The only bright spot I can forsee on the horizon, is that maybe, with all the public animosity aimed at incumbents – perhaps we have seen the end of the Philobluster Hare era, here in the 17th district of Illinois. The only thing that could be better, would be an implosion of the Thuggish Rock Island Democratic Politburo and their decades old control and destruction of this district. Then perhaps we could get either a Democrat or a Republican Representative, that would actually represent the will of the people of this district, instead of dancing as a political puppet for national politcal figures like Nancy Pelosi. After decades of non-representation from Lane Evans and then Phil Hare, it would be a breath of fresh air to actually have a real person in the office. But I will not hold my breath – waiting for that to happen.
