The first of many comments about Joe Walsh was

KGB – Wednesday, Jun 13, 12 @ 12:22 pm:

Joe Walsh — First!!

He listens to no one, has a terrible way of responding to constituents, has a horrid personal life that overshadows any accomplishments of the office.

Did I mention he has no accomplishments?

Local Republicans who think that Jack Franks should have gotten as spirited a campaign as the Democrats are mounting against Joe Walsh might start flying this flag of protest, an upside down elephant on white cloth.

The comment about “Chainsaw Jack” Franks follows:

Dirt Diver – Wednesday, Jun 13, 12 @ 5:15 pm:

Gotta put my 2 cents in for Jack Franks as I can’t believe he hasn’t been mentioned.

Biggest self-promoter there is in the General Assembly. \

I don’t know how that man calls himself a Democrat.

Lacks accountability.

Tried to cash in on the whole pension abuse issue by sponsoring a bill to remove 2 IFT lobbyists from TRS that were allowed into TRS by legislation that he voted for.

He claims he didn’t realize the bill he voted for did that.

    Wow Cal.

    Jack has done more for McHenry County than you can say for yourself and this sham “news” blog.

    On that note, well done with Tonya and her Manchurian candidacy.

    What’s next for you and Sharon?

  2. I’ll eat my hat if a single republican does this in the greater McHenry county area.

    Cal, you will be as much able to rouse a grassroots campaign with anti-establishment rhetoric against the local GOP as you were in getting Tonya on the ballot THEN shluffing that failure off to Sharon Baloney as her own invention and doing.

    Skinner Junior = All talk, no game.
