PEORIA — While the son of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was the keynote speaker at tonight’s Lincoln Day Dinner, Peoria County Republicans reserved standing ovations for U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood.I know, it’s too late.
I’ll likely take a Republican ballot on February 5th in an attempt to block Aaron Schock. I really don’t want that guy representing me in Congress. I’ve always felt sorry for people who live in congressional districts represented by one of the batshit insane true believers, and I don’t want to be one of them.
As I’ve long said, LaHood was a LOR (Least Objectionable Republican) with whom I could mostly disagree with but still respect. And since there’s no way anyone but a Republican will ever be elected to Congress here (or so it seams), I need to seek out the next LOR. Right now McConoughey looks like he might be a better (not good, but better) alternative.
While I’d like to vote in the Democratic presidential primary, I can still find some fun on the Republican side. I’ll be voting for Mittens because he'll be absolutely crushed by whichever Dem emerges as the victor in the primaries.
