You Couldn't Make This Stuff Up

  • On Tuesday, Illinois voters fed up with government corruption and criminality selected a hooker-slashing* pawnbroker to be the Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor.
  • A new ad campaign for the ExtenZe "male-enhancement supplement" will feature "Fox NFL Sunday" host Jimmy Johnson. I'm just waiting for Flomax to hire retired race car driver Dick Trickle.
* Since the charges were dropped, I guess I should say, "alleged hooker-slashing..."

I don't get it, either.

At least Toddler received the beatdown he deserved---but then again, nobody actually voted for him in the first place, IIRC?

Yes, that was definitely the best news on Tuesday.

His father won the primary election one week after his stroke in March 2006. Toddler was selected to replace him on the ballot four months later. So people voted for Toddler in the general election, but not in the primary.
