7. "I have doubts about the TORTURE BILL"
"I was shot down behind enemy lines"

she's worried about what will happen to OUR SOLDIERS when they're held prisoners

now, Carol Marin (moderator) is throwing his filthy ads back in his FACE!

good for her!

10. Ooh, good point Duckworth on debating re: immigration
she deflected Roskam's desire to NOT be pinned down on the debate re: immigration. She's doing good!

14. Roskam is a SKUNK! he's avoiding the question of whether he
opposes ALL abortions, including rape and incest, instead blathering on about parental notice.

and Carol falls down on that, letting his evasion stand

I'm MAD!

18. mad at Carol Marin for allowing him to sidestep the question of
where he stands on abortion in the case of rape or incest

Tammy said he's against it in all instances

wish she'd said something about embryonic stem cell research

still, and all, that jackass was very smooth, very oily.

I dunno how this thing will turn out

he's ahead by what, three points, as of yesterday's tribune poll?

17. I thought that Tammy pointed out his evasion ahead of time
so you could watch for it. She knew he was going to do this. He obviously didn't answer the question especially after Tammy already said he wouldn't.

20. but why did Carol Marin allow him to evade answering it?
I thought that was VERY important, and my guess is even those against abortion aren't in favor of a complete ban, especially in case of rape/incest/life of mother

I wanted to HEAR him say where he stands, and he didn't have to.

would have made for good ad material

23. Yeah, and Carol Marin is supposed to be our Chicago "pit bull" reporter?
:eyes:

Jayzus farking Kee-rist. She was a wimp! Let him right off the hook!

Yep, Roskam NEVER says it out loud. Tammy has to say it and then he goes off into the whole parental notification shit to avoid mentioning the unmentionables....

I have a family member who got pregnant via incest. What's even wierder is I grew up with Peter Roskam. He knows our family well - it is beyond belief he would think this was okay... he is an indoctrinated fundy. He grew up like that and has swallowed it like a woman wearing a burkha in Pakistan.

25. pretty sad, huh? she's going to hear about it from at least one
person

and she really IS liberal, too. she's written some withering criticisms of the junta over the last few years

I wonder if she just messed up, and didn't get a chance to hold his feet to the fire, or if it was a conscious decision to let him skate

and, what you say about Roskam is completely sickening

he just OOZES insincerity. what an unctuous prick

16. Abortion, gun control etc. she sounds very strong
She talks too fast! She's unpolished but comes across as very earnest. Peter Roskam's very deliberative delivery sounds so fake and practiced...

Wow. Short but sweet I thought. This is just a small slice of the debate I saw at COD the other week.

21. how did that go? btw, I was there in 2000, at a Bush rally. I was one
of about 20 dems among TWENTY THOUSAND pugs

it was like being at Nuremburg in 1933

very scary

24. Tammy supporter FAR outnumbered Roskam supporters at the debate I attended
The big applause was for Tammy, by far. I felt very comfortable being there even though I was standing at the back. I got there a bit late because of the traffic coming back from protesting Roskam's appearance with Bu$h and Hastert at the Hilton in Chicago.

Tammy has a LOT of charisma. I know there is a huge population of Cegelis supporters who can't get over the primary, but I've met both of the candidates, and Tammy has that "star" quality. In this district, I'm not sure Cegelis could have broken thru the Rethug miasma that hangs over Dupage Co. It took someone like Tammy, imho (and her cash via the DCCC - yikes, ducking from the flames!).
