The Can-do Con

The latest Illinois Times has an article featuring the two Democrats running for the privilege of taking on Raymond Poe for the 99th district Illinois House seat in November. Chuck Redpath and Sam Cahnman are facing each other in tomorrow’s primary election.

But look at this little tidbit:
Until recently, Cahnman pronounced his name “CON-mun” but changed to “CAN-mun,” he says, because he wants people to think of him as the “can-do candidate.”
Well, isn’t that convenient. I mean CANvenient. When I run for office I’m changing the pronunciation (but not the spelling) of my name to Resolute Strongleader.
