Local rising political stars

Glamour magazine has a story in its November issue about female political candidates dubbed “rising stars” in this year’s election. Local candidates Tammy Duckworth (Democrat running for Congress) and Judy Baar Topinka (Republican running for Governor) are noted.

Arianna Huffington is quoted as saying, “Tammy Duckworth is fearlessness personified. She’s propelled herself into a new life. Even without legs, she has shown her fellow candidates how to run.”

Christine Todd Whitman is quoted as saying this about Judy Baar Topinka, “She doesn’t need on-the-job training; she already knows how to get things done.”

    Tammy Duckworth has no legs? I had no idea.

    By “get things done” are they talking about fraud, creating the largest defecit in the state’s history, among other things? If they are, well, yes, Topinka can get all those things done.
