Happy Birthday to the State of Illinois

On December 3, 1818, Illinois became the 21st state to enter the union.

Bill in Portland Maine gives Illinois a big CHEERS:

CHEERS to the 21st State. Hey, Illinois! You’re turning 187 tomorrow. Because you had the sense to send Barack Obama to the U.S. Senate last year, will we now forgive you for producing the vile Donald Rumsfeld? Gosh, maybe.
