    Does anybody have a rundown on the 3rd party candidates for this election? I’ve thought some of the presidential elections were “lesser of two evils” situations, but this one takes the cake.

    If I don’t find another candidate, i’m voting for Brian “Greatest American Hero” Anderson.

    I don’t pay much attention to politics, but I can say that this Topinka woman looks like a miserable, miserable lady.

    And I’m against any casino in Chicago. A casino should not be the anchor of any budget recovery plan.

    Sure, next you’ll be saying that my retirement plan shouldn’t be anchored on Powerball…
