Hot anger, angst and some praise for my column that Topinka is the liberal in the governors race: Lovies Leather says Tom, you are extremely disloyal. Topinka didnt endorse Fitzgerald and now you wont endorse her. You are just as bad as her. I am extremely confused about what you have become, Tom Josh says Judy is to the right of Rod regardless of what you want to acknowledge it or not. Think about itSecond amendment, Joe Birkett, partial birth abortion ban, parental consent. Shes to the right of Jim Edgar. David P. Graf says Ill vote for Blagojevich because if shes elected shell play with the Dems just as Ryan did. Incidentally, David, I lost your address and phone; send it to me on my e-mail Jose says Judy is to the right of Edgar and your bias is overriding your judgment! Lovies Leather back again with another attack on me. Blagojevich fired Republican workers and I dont understand it. You are no Republican, Tom. Then Jeffrey Isbell goes after Lovie, trying sweet reason to say that its not important whose jobs they areRepublican or Democratbut theyre human beings
Someone named TR (not me) writes Topinka is a Stinka!...Help! Im a Republican in a sea of RINOs [Republicans in Name Only]
Lovie once more: If you [meaning me] care about social issues, dont complain when Judy loses and your buddies lose their jobs because youre no Republican, Tom.
Gene Lesko says Topinka is in the mold of George Ryan
Jeff says Topinka is no friend of the conservative movement or the Republican party but is a disgrace and detriment to the Republicans
Matt Nelson says the ASCME is no way to judge candidates. It supported Edgar
And finally Doug Ibendahl made the old man feel good by saying, Well said, Tom! Right on target!
The erudite John Curry got yesterdays quote right: Charles I of England, the second Stuart and grandson of Mary Queen of Scots after the victory of Oliver Cromwell, pointing out that while the King may have forgiven his executioners, the restored monarchy didnt, all the prosecutors were condemned and several ran away to the American colonies. He points out: submitted without search engine assistance
My favorite Wanderer reader Frank Nofsinger got it right too, Google-free as he did Johnnie Ray. I said scaffold but that also meant beheading as well as hanging, Frank and the kings head was lopped off. Im trying to get that picture changed, too, Frank!
