Hastert Defeated. We Fired The Coach.

In the final analysis, I am a fucking genius. Again.

That's right, sports fans, because what I had been saying all along has finally come to pass: and now Dennis "J. Dennis" Hastert has been defeated outside his district.

Right again, kiddos. Outside the motherfuckin' district.

Some of the beef-headed morons of the Jim Birch Society (and other various sundry dolts) snottily sneered a few months ago that I didn't know what the fuck I was talking about when I said that. Today they probably think John Laesch's "Revive the American Dream" theme is what turned the House back over to Democratic hands.

"The American Dream" theme, by the way, is a southern slang akin to "hang all the niggers." True. I got a good snicker from those silly purple signs the kid kept buying, though, every time they sprang up by the dozen at corners. Oh, yeah, kid: corners don't vote. You'd want to have those signs in yards to make your popularity look real. Nice try, though.

But what in the world was I talking about? Oh, yes. How fucking smart I am.

So "The Coach," the oafish dolt, the Accidental Congressman who rose to become Accidental Speaker of the House and performed wonders as a kindly fat old man who would never lie or play demagogue (but did at every fucking turn, because he's not kindly at all) has been fired. Outside the district. The only way it could happen.

Check out the vote totals by county and tell me I'm wrong, Progressive Patriots. You blew through money like a crack whore and you've got nothing to show for it. Zip!

As for my next pronouncement: Denny "J. Dennis" Hastert won't serve out his full term of office. He can't stand losing. Never could. And now he has plenty of good excuses to waddle off to the big old farm in Wisconsin and hang out with Sensenbrenner.

Wow, I have been reading all of your blogs as it pertains to John Laesch and Dennis Hastert, I am really not too involved in any political party, but I do know that you are a total moron. I've been reading the papers about John Laesch and I for one thought he was the best shot we had at taking down Denny.

Tom Brophy said...

He did better than any other candidate hs in the past. Hopefully, after Denny retires (and HRC, you're right - that will happen before his term expires)- we can make a better run at the office. Hopefully, the DNC and DCCC will help out this time, hopefully Madigan and the state party will help this time. Those bastards didn't help anyone except the "chosen few". Obama and Durbin were doing that which Madigan and his forces at the state level should have been doing.

I'm hopeful for the Democrats of Kendall County - expecially the future of the Democratic Party in Kendall.

HRC - glad you're back - I think (ha-ha)

Nicely stated Tom. The best part is that this blog is now irrelevent so whatever Political Insiders opinion is it's not going any farther than this. PI will never show at a meeting and will never try to improve things by working together. PI is just a petty moron who will continue to complain, but who cares.

Fair's fair. You have been right all along, a little over the top occasionally, but right.

There are no final victories in politics but there are final defeats. History will not judge this era kindly and I hope the US attorney looks at the land deal in more detail.

Continued success. Enjoy the glow.

Tom you really are not smart enough to come in out of the rain. You really are just as stupid as stupid does. What is really funny is that outside of your 12 goofs you really think that you accomplished something. Well reality bites and you suck dick. Maybe if you and the communist keep sucking the republican tit they might let you have an elected office how about dog catcher. Then you and little John won't have to rape the neibors pooch.

ARRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HRC is right about one vey important thing..

With the petty bullshit that brought on the party split in 2004 and the formation of the progressive council (often refered to as the "Birch Society") the dems in kendall have been able to do absolutely nothing. Acting like a tough-guy and challenging people who dissagree didn't work for Tom B, helping take over a party didn't work for John L, and sniping didn't help John C (not that he had much of a chance in Dist 1) or Joe P. Matter of fact NOTHING done at the holy meeting of the KCDCC helped anyone at all.

Why did they even bother? What was accomplished? Do they still feel important? Do they think that 34% for their rock-star (in Kendall) is something to be proud of? And at what cost for the future?

These questions are very important, but the most important is what can be done to build a viable party here? can anyone from either administration still be trusted? Is there a rational and knowlegable middle ground person to help it build and grow? There is too much distrust on one side and nowhere near the knowlege needed on the other.

Is there still hope for the party or did Dalas manage to pull off the ultimate victory?

Anonymous said...

Brian,

You state that Dems have been unable to accomplish anything since the split. What exactly was accomplished before the split?

Nothing.

Same shit. Different Day.

Little Birdie told me that Rob Reed had a secret meeting with Tammy Wintermute. He was asked by the kendall powers to be to help bring John Laesch some support in his bid for the congressional race. Hear the republicans in Yorkville were really worried about JDL snd wanted to make sure that he had his support.

Tom Brophy said...

You're all still as nuts as ever. There was a post in another section of this blog that stated this blog is no longer relevant...I'm beginning to believe that.

You fucking idiots need to understand that the Democratic party - as a whole - just accomplished a great thing....the numbers in Kendall county continue to grow and good ol' Denny had to stay here and spend $1 million to retain his seat which ultimately he will retire from because he too is no longer relevant.

If you want to change something - get involved - if you want to bitch for bitchin's sake - go hang with the repugs. All of the bad mouthing going on at this point is useless.

See ya!

bob sparlo said...

Tom you are right allot of democrats did very well however it was not through your efforts. Spending all of the county resources chasing at windmills. Starting arguments all over the county. Not delivering the foot soliders that were promised by the current regime. Calling the voters stupid. Oh yeah Tom hat's off to you and your crazy group. With the national media on Kendall County and the chance to gain postive attention for the party you only gave the party yet another black eye.

Tom Brophy said...

Hey Bob - you need to lay off the crack...what do mean "arguments all over the county"? I argue with the 5 or 6 folks who read this blog - nowhere else...

What county resources were spent? Are you talking about the print ads for ALL OF THE CANDIDATES, or are you talking about the cable TV commercials for ALL THE CANDIDATES, or are you talking about the newspaper that encouraged voters to vote for ALL THE CANDIDATES...I don't know where all of the "county's resources" wre spent on any one candidate.

Who promised what foot soldiers to whom? All I know is that there were folks out all over the county handing out flyers for ALL OF THE CANDIDATES. There were candidates who didn't provide any literature for our "foot soldiers"...guess what, we made our own and included those candidates on that flyer. My precinct captains and I deliverd to all of Churchill Club and Ogden Falls. I know that literature went out all over the county. I also know that anyone who asked for help with literature got it.

I don't think I called "the voters" stupid. I would call you stupid, I would call the cowardly young repugs stupid. The voters here (especially in my precinct) are the most intelligent ever - what the hell, all of the statewide democratic candidates won in my precinct. Laesch got 43% - 3 points higher than the county. The voters aren't stupid - I think you may be.

Those of you who continue to fight an old fight are giving the party a black eye. There's nothing left to fight about - you've exhausted it. We are making great strides in this county - get over it. Bob, I definately think you're being stupid.

Now, go find someone who has served our country...thank them for their service...buy them a cup of coffee...thell them you appreciate their sacrifice. I know I do.

Now Tom please quit spearding lies and rumors the party is over and tell John to shut off the lights.

joe stupec said...

I feel exactly the same way. That same list of friends for me would include two great "young people", Kristen and Jared Lash. When I became concerned enough, last November, to decide I'd better do something, I searched out a candidate. It was going to be between Zamora and Laesch because I live in the 14th. It was a toss-up but my wife and I decided on Laesch. That's not to say anything negative about Rubin but that's just how it worked out.
My concern was for the younger generation (I'm 66). It seemed they were oblivious to what was being done to their futures and they had no idea. After this election I feel much better because of people like John & Jennifer (30 somethings), Kristen & Jared (20 somethings), Ben (18) and another great 18 year old named Jeff plus several others. I have a 28 year old daughter, a 29 year old son-in-law and I'm going to be a grand father in June (YES!!!). These are the people I'm concerned about the most. They need to know how the last 6 years have adversely effected their futures. I'm breathing a little easier now. My first election result wish was for John Laesch to be in a completely Democratic Congress. My second result is what has happened. For me the good news is the next election is only 2 years away and I intend to stand with all the friends I've made during this campaign to work on that number 1 result again.

On another subject, the Aurora Beacon News was lamenting the idea that Hastert was not going to try for a leadership post in the next Congress. First of all he doesn't have a chance in hell and he knows that and secondly he knows all of the crimes he's been party to and he'd just as soon sneak away and not be seen again. Sorry, I too want him to stay close. Crimes have been committed and I demand justice for all of the leaders that have screwed with our constitution. I'm talking impeachment, jail time and fines exceeding the amount that they greedly accumulated. We are a country of laws (not pitchforks and torches) and it's time for that slow wheel of justice to begin turning. We can do both, govern the country and clean up the mess left behind by these corrupt b@#&%*&s. If I sound angry, I am. So many have died from New Orleans to Baghdad and for what? Ok that's it. Let me know what I can do, whatever it takes.......

kevin simpson said...

People like you make me sick... here you have a good American like Joe Stupec pouring his heart and soul out. This guy really thought the cause was worth it and really wants to make a change... On the other hand you have a guy like Tom Brophy who is power hungry and want's to tell everyone how important he is. This is the basic problem with the Kendall Dems. Everyone down there want's to be a chief and do as little as possible. I guess this debate will linger. All the wasted time and effort because the current leadership along with the progressive council saw a power grab. At the end of the day the only thing the Kendall Dems can put on the board is Linda Holmes a fine person who will serve her district well. However on election day none of the Kendall Dems helped out they were to busy trying to salvage what was left from the Laesch campagin. Linda Homes won her race with allot of help from the Aurora Democrats. The Divide in Kendall is stupid and if people like Tom Brophy want to contiue to tell the world how important they are then fine. We will never elect Democrats period.

dekalb progressive said...

Kevin the Laesch team and the Homes team worked hand in hand through out the election. We did several joint events, rallies, fundraisers, planned walks. Our efforts in Aurora are a major reason why we carried the city. We supplied man power and time at the campagin headquaters. It was through our efforts that all the candiates on the 14th distrct either won or improved. As the head of the ticket we felt it was our job to carry the team. In some races the favor was not returned. When John spoke to the media he always made a plug for the Democrats and the other people on the ticket. We felt it was important to speak up for several candiates who were being ignored by the party leadership in their counties. We enjoyed the support of all the county leadership and tryed to send it down the line. We feel we are in a strong place now for two years. Our people feel that change is not done and in some counties we will help to push for a change again so the district will get stronger. We will demand that the party leaders share our vision for the people of the 14th. We can no longer sit and allow the 14th party to be stagant with ineffective leadership at the county level. We have just begun and through John's leadership we will see the future of the party and see him in congress in a few short months.

You people can suck a fart from my asshole. The only thing that matters is putting the fat bastard in jail. The only unity will have is through the efforts of Leader Birch. Our country needs good Chrstians who will stand on guard for American values of church, american pie, and holding our rights to bear arms. John Laesch is that guy who will fill my needs as a voter. After Lisa Madigan presses charges against Denny then the path will be clear for John to go to Washington and stand up for real americans.

yorkvilledem said...

First of all we did work very hard. It is unfair when our own pcp's would not help to get out and campagin. This was a very tough election because we had several people who were jealous of John. We tried to do what we could but when we have people calling Jim Birch and saying that they just did not sign on ofr that much work then what are we to do... We made changes and we saw postive things. At least it is a step in the right direction... two years ago as I have been told no effort was made on behalf of the central committee. We admit the only thing we should have done better was get better precinct committeeman who will do their job.

Tom Brophy said...

To the anon too far back in the comments to count - you're correct, I do need to clarify my statement - John Laesch did 3 points better in my precinct than he did in the DISTRICT - sorry!

To the other young repug anons and those using my name and Jim Feely's name - I'm sure you make your mothers proud - you're little jerk offs not worthy of my time...

To Keven...I never knew I was so important...you too, sir, need to check your meds...

Go look at the numbers again. You can see that there is a Democratic presence emerging in this county, particularly in District 2. I give District 1 a couple more years and they will be where we are now. The county is changing folks...new blood is moving in and a lot of those people vote DEMOCRATIC.

Some time I really wonder why I even bother with you idiots...you have no conscience...you have no honor...you have no courage...you have no integrity. This is like talking to a big pile of shit...the longer it goes on, the more it smells...

Who wants to bet on the fact that fat Denny will be gone before January 1st - we all know he wants to keep his Speakers pension. He's going to have to pay a lot of property taxes on the "small spread" he's got in Plano....

Denny won the election but he lost the war. He has been relegated to a position of obscurity, the rpugs have worked very hard to destroy this country and dishonor our servicemen and women. As a nation, we will prevail - in spite of you. The entire repug party has been placed in the back seat. I'm hopeful that some meaningful legislation will come out of this congress. I'm hopeful that our economy can get back on track. I'm hopeful that this inane war in Iraq will find a resolution soon before too many more good young people die - yes, good young people - something you young repugs could learn from. You continue to post here and you continue to reaffirm my belief that the current republican administration needs to go away. You represent them just as they are.

You need to go find a veteran and beg his or her forgiveness for dishonoring that which they have so bravely fought for. You are a disgrace to humanity.

Tom you are so right thanks for e-mailing me about this situation. Here to help you... sounds like we have a problem on our hands... called all the other progressives... it's a matter of 'when' not if Denny steps off stage and what the bunker plans from the local GOP cabals have decided in choosing their next 'Fearless Leader' Imperator.
Am rather sure these past weeks at Hastert's shady acres compund have been full of intrigues and b***h slapping amongst the self annointed inheritors within the Kane-Kendall cabals.

Who knows, maybe they'll annoint Cardinal 'Lucky Jack' Cunningham or even someone from the Brent Schepp coalition, which would be in keeping as a 'fitting tribute' to the legacy Denny will leave behind him. {heavy snark off}

I received an email (as I'm sure many others have) from the Laesch Campaign about 'keep those yardsigns handy' and be ready to suit up again in the near future should developments merit heading back to the trenches.

Team Laesch has shown they are capable and deserving of bringing genuine Representation back to the 14th District. We cannot allow the Emanuel-Madigan play carpet baggers nor usurpers.

They kept Hastert enthroned these past 20 years, they have no claim or entitlement upon the 14th Congressional District and those of us who've been 'left in the wilderness'.
We have your back Tom Team Laesch is here for you.

My fellow progressives
Submitted by ken on Fri, 11/10/2006 - 7:33am.
I want to express my deepest appreciation for all of the hard work that people have poured into the effort to win Illinois’ 14th District.

This Nov. 7th was a historic day when Americans said, "yes" to a new direction for our country! While we may have lost the little fish with 40% of the vote in Illinois’ 14th District, we caught the big fish in Washington and that deserves celebration.

Together we raised more money ($300,000) and garnered a larger percentage of the vote (40%) than any past Democratic candidate has in this district.

Your hard work also forced the most powerful Congressman in America to return to his district and campaign. The FEC reports are not yet available, but we do know that Denny took out negative radio advertisements to compliment the 6-7 mass-mailings that he used. Laura Bush and Dennis Hastert made robo-dials and we know that independent voters received a push-poll.

Democrats have been making in-roads in this district since Larry Quick made the first grassroots run at Illinois’ 14th District in 2002, but in 2006, we moved the ball forward against a Foley-scarred Speaker.

It takes a grassroots campaign to get voters to the polls in an off-year election cycle and that is what you did. Here is snapshot of this district since the 2000 gerrymander.




2002
Larry Quick (D) 47,165 (26%)
Dennis Hastert (R) 135,198
Total 182,363




2004
Ruben Zamora (D) 87,590 (31%)
Dennis Hastert (R) 191,618
Total 279, 208




2006
John Laesch (D) 77,065 (40%)
Dennis Hastert (R) 114,385
Total 191,450




While these numbers are positive, they do not compare to the greatest experience in this election, which can not be quantified with a number. My favorite moments came while I was listening to people like you and sharing my vision with you for an energetic, grassroots political system that represents the American people.

Together we can take our country in a new direction and revive the American Dream for All Americans! This must be our shared vision for this country and it can not happen without your continued involvement in the political system.

Thanks again for your commitment to lasting and meaningful change.

Sincerely,



John Laesch

John Laesch is a progressive wet dream with no future and no hope of ever becomming anything more than a loser.

Been reading the posts and got the e-mail from Tom that the Jackyals were at it again. Listen team Laesch the only statement that we made about the election was that we accepted defeat acknowledged our goals were met and that the final goal which in every campagain was that we win. Now during the election cycle John read these posts and on several times he was almost in tears. John prays every day for people who hate him because with his moral charactor John belives in turning the other cheek. Gains have been made and yes we at team Laesch feel that the gains made here are due to our hard work. This Weekend John is Flying to washington to meet with senator durbin and senator obbma to talk about the special election. On this trip John will meet with the concord coalation about setting up the next campagin. This is only a few months away. Senator Kennedy and Kerry have already signed up to help this time. Together we will win this important race. Team Laesch is also welcoming the support of Paul Rubens and Hugh Hefener have signed on so far to help team Laesch..

Dear Progressive Patriot:

I can’t thank you enough for all your support throughout our long and hard-fought 2006 campaign. We may not have won this election, but we proved that our numbers are strong and growing stronger in IL-14 every day.

We would like to ask you to bring in your lawn signs. If you would like them picked up, please call the office at (630) 385-8568 and let us know.

On the other hand, you may need that sign…and possibly sooner than 2008!

If Hastert resigns before the new Congress is sworn in, there will be a special election. So, although they must be brought in, please do feel free to hang onto that sign – we may need to deploy them quickly!

Thank you again for all your support throughout these last busy months; the opportunity to meet so many fellow progressive patriots during the last 18 months, and to earn your support and your friendship, has made this an experience I will never forget and will always cherish.

Respectfully,

JDL

Words of wisdom from Atrios...

that if you don't play you can't win, but every game has an entrance fee. If you don't have credible candidates in place - and, yes, even ones who are probably going to lose - you can't take advantage of a potential "wave," or a sudden scandal, or surprise retirements. If nothing else it seems like every election about half a dozen or so incumbents are knocked out at the last minute by scandal or surprise retirement, and those are easy (sometimes automatic) pickups if you have a candidate who is actually running a credible race.

Also, if you don't run credible candidates regularly, and run real campaigns, you don't build networks of support, you don't build local knowledge, and you don't build a pool of talented and willing volunteers.

Hey Bob - not only are you stupid, you're a real jerk-off as well. Just from the words you used in your posting, I can tell you are nothing less than a poser who wants people to believe you served our country in an honorable fashion. If you truly were a man of integrity and honor, you wouldn't use an "assumed" name and you would know exaclty what I was referring to when I use words like "honor, integrity, courage"...you obviously don't...you are a waste of my time.

The rest of you childish assholes really need to get a life...the election is over...Denny won here in this district but lost the country. He will never be relevant again. GET OVER IT! Gueass what else, he will retire and it will be soon...HRC is absolutely coreect on that point. He will retire BEFORE he loses his "speaker" pension. He, like every other rpug is too concerned about his own wealth - he won't let that go.

There will be another election and it will be sooner than you think. Go crawl back into your holes and take the top in with you. Today is a day that each of you unworthy pieces of shit need to go find a veteran and thank them for their service. You need to beg their forgiveness for abusing the freedoms you have in this country - you need to beg for forgiveness because it is that veteran who caused you to act like such an asshole. You should thank them - even though you don't deserve the honor of speaking with them.

Get ready to rev your engines...I think we'll be back at it soon.

No shit sherlock we know to day is a day of tribute however for a poser vet like you who wish to exploit vets instead of help the. You use words like charactor and honor as if they are punch lines in social talk at cocktail parties. You are a monday morining quaterback and a week end warrior all rolled into one. You wish to debate the issues however you can not even get your facts stated. You are a misinformed olf who edcuates himself by reading by reading Mad copic book. You have one speed and that is crazy{ psycho} By your admission you are not the sharpest knife in the drawer the only concern here is that you should not play with sharp objects. Well keep rev that engine because you are only spining your tires. Grow a set of balls and tell the world the truth; you have a problem with the world and you need to seek help. We pray that you are able to find the answer for your mental illiness and that you can make piece with your shadow.
Today is a day to honor vets and that is the only senseiable thing you had to say!

Wasn't Holloween a few weeks back and John Laesch and Tom Brophy came around my neiborhood trick or treating John was pretending to be a congressman and Tom was dressed up like General Patton he had the cigar thing going on too. It was funny watching two grown men running around in costumes.

Hey anon...I'm not mad nor am I bored. How the hell can anyone be bores when bullshit like this goes on. Also, do you even know what a "poser" is...or is it that you can't think up something original on your own.

I have no problem with the world...I have aproblem with people like you who have the "balls" to tell me to growe a pair when you in a most cowardly fashion post your personal insults about me using an anon name. It's actually humorous and speaks volumes about the repugs...I know you must be one. You've read the book of Rove well....

Now, GO THANK A VET

Maybe we should take a hard look at this. It is unfortunate that John Leasch did not win the district. But the district covers a lot more than just Kendall County. I also know that there was a lot of Kendall Democrats who worked very hard to get the message out.

So for all you morons who want to try to blame it all on the Kendall Democrats lets examine the local candidates that were offered up by the previous administration (Marty F.) and inherited by the current administration. We have Ken Musich(sp?) who is a functional illiterate, Ruby Gregg who, we heard through the grapevine, didn't even know she was running as late as September and Lizzy Flowers who has about as much personality as desk lamp. The sum total of information I heard from these candidates was a few forum letters in the paper and the letters were all signed by all three of them. I guess a vote for one was vote for them all. The one article I read that attempted to outline these three candidates position stated that Ken M. didn't want to be interviewed. Nice move by somebody suposedly running for public office. The only campaign signage that I saw for the local candidates was for Crawford. All these candidates campaigns were run by Marty Flowers. Not exactly a stellar job, but I don't see the HRC 5 railing against him.

We also should point out that we, the Kendall Dems, offered to help out John Crawford, the only viable candidate that the previous admin offered up, and were basically told to go fuck ourselves. We included all these candidates names in most of our lit and advertising even though they refused to work with us in any way. All because Marty was fairly voted out as chairman and his small group of friends couldn't keep it in perspective.

You clowns who think you know how to do it better have a couple of choices. You can come to meetings and contribute or you can try to organize and you get a chance to try to take it over in two years. I doubt you guys can pay attention that long.

Hey Mental Giant..

Who do you put up?

If you folks worked so hard, why did JDL do worse in Kendall than outside the county?

"come to the meetings"

Since that's all you seem to do, I'll choose to pass and continue to WORK.

Hmm.. the the race where the Flowers were most active was helping Linda Chapa LaVia (a personal freind of theirs) and she won an almost 4:1 margin.

Final Score:
KCDCC 0
Flowers 1

I know which side I'll go with to pick the winners in '08 and it won't be with the current do-nothings!

Well the progressive spin machine is full stride. First they make a power move that blew up their faces. Now they have to attack everybody involved that ran for office because thare are jealous of the success. Their guy looked like a piece of crap and all the other candiates did well. Linda and Frank really made statements. It is really sad the kendall dems never learned to play well with others.

WTF, Your skulls must be half an inch thick plate steel. When are you going to get it. It is greater than you, that flowers fella or anyone else! Do you think all repuks liked GWBush ? No but they stuck togather and got the worthless peice o crap elected!
So when anyone is on a ballot as a democrat the obligation is there!
Was the funds passed around fairly? Ill just take a guess.....Fuck no JL got it all cause they thought he had that fat ass on the ropes. Just goes to show ya how smart you really are. You may of had a few dems on the county board if a few hundred bucks were thrown their way.
Think long and hard before you respond!

Hey I agree with you. Like I said we were willing to assist the local candidates in any way we could. But we cannot force them to work with us. And for the record we did not throw any money towards JL - we assisted him with bodies. All the money from the Kendall Dems went towards advertising for ALL the democratic candidates including the ones who refused to work with us.

Tom Brophy said...

Candidates usually raise their won money. While it's true that the DCCC helped out with Duckworth in a huge way, it's because Emanuel thought they were going to win that race. The "party" seems to only want those who are sure winners. As for the Kendall Dems, there really isn't enough money to go around for any of the candidates. The function of the KCD's is to help with bodies. There was enough money to help with some literature, commercials, and print ads. Those were for all of the democratic candidates - NO ONE PERSON GOT ANYTHING. Committeemen went throughout their precincts and did canvassing for ALL the candidates. The PC's also passed out literature for any candidate who provided it. For those who didn't, we created our own which listed EVERY candidate.

you're absolutely right - this is MUCH bigger than the Flowers or any one person. This is about the Democrats finally getting a foot hold - about Democrats finally making some progress in Kendall county - and it really doesn't matter how that happened. The fact is that the Dems are beginning to emerge here.

All of the rest of this is just plain "mine is bigger than yours" type bullshit. There is a Democratic Central Committee in place that is ready and willing to support qualified candidates for public office. We can make something happen here, but we have to do it together.

There's going to be more campaigns - we need qualified people to step up and run. Things are going to get interesting!

If Laesch runs again, he should be more careful with his commericals and advertisements. On the commercials he claims he was an intelligence officer. In fact, I believe he was enlisted. There is a big difference between an enlisted sailor working in military intelligence, and an "intelligence officer."

They didn't call him on it this time, but if he has to run against somebody who has any knowlege of the military, that will pose a problem.

Don't worry Tom Brophy will protect John Laesch after all Tom was the master mind behind his campagin. Funny thing thou he still fot his ass kicked word of advice for the Lashies spend the money and hire a professional.

Anonymous said...

You are a total idiot - Tom was not the mastermind of JL's campaign. In fact he had nothing to do with it. Tom and the rest of the Kendall Dems were supporters of JL. Your idiotic claims are easily dicounted just go to http://www.john06.com/contact

Anonymous said...

So the Kendall Dems are not to blame for that ass wipeing. Who is to blame is it the Lashies themselves. Who was the power behind the toliet. Come on annon tell the truth who is responsable for good ole JDL getting his ass kicked.

I did it (0.00 / 0)
but I suggested it would have been nicer had he shown up about 2 weeks earlier. Now it's what can we do for him and not what he can do for us. Don't get me wrong, I admire Sen Feingold. I just would have appreciated his support during local campaigns here. I look forward to seeing him.

Republican voters, of which there is a large majority in Kendall and the fact that Denny was the incumbant and is from here and has a loyal following. John was a long shot to begin with and in the big picture he performed well.

Get some perspective and quit trying to blame it on the local party. Its just not possible to change that many voters party loyalty in one election.

Anonymous said...

To gain some persceptive John was a long shot who pissed everbody off with his antics. Through his attacks of insults and his crude methods this man destroyed any creditablity the democratic party had. Please do not insult the american people anymore with this rhetoric about what a bright and sincere man that good ole JDL is. As Americans it is time to turn the page and forget about the great poltical experiemnt and move forward.
We owe it to the country and the people to move forward and make new history. It is up to all of us to do our part.

Anonymous said...

Whatever...

There is no Democratic Party in Kendall anymore. There are 3 factions (flowers, Progs, Laeschites) who sometimes combine forces when the mood strikes them.

This is a Republican controlled county and it looks like M Flowers, J Birch and J Laesch are all working to keep it that way.




Either that or they are all too self absorbed to think about us little people and try to do what is right by us. They are almost as bad as the Republicans.

Anonymous said...

First of all you are correct the Flowers faction is weak and has nothing left they got their asses handed to them in the last election and are no longer a factor in the local party. J Birch did not slate any one for office and only supported John Laesch and the Democratic Praty. As far as John Laesch he ran a strong race and had packing from all three factions you speak of.
If there is a divsion in the party where is the divsion you speak of. This party locally is going to unite behind a strong and capable winner to build the big tent party we all expect from the Democratic Party.
There is no more spilt in the Kendall Dems because there is new leadership all the candiates did better than we ever did before and their is going to be a NEW PATH THIS PARTY WILL TAKE. Progressives Council members and the new majority in the Kendall Dems are untied in the cause for a brighter future. Please get your facts before you post. It is going to take some time to build a strong party here and get strong candiates to seek office and support our candiates. This is just a begining so please support us.

HEY, ANON!! say it ain't so..the KENDALL DEMS ARE untied? AND YOU WERE THE FIRST ONE UNTIED? AND YOU EXPECT SUPPORT IN BUILDING A LAESCH-LAND? RIGHT, GRACELAND WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY..THE BEST PATH YOU COULD TAKE IS ..GET SOME ONE TO DICTATE AND TYPE YOUR POSTS.COULD I SELL YOU A DREAM CATCHER? SUCH ARROGANCE IS WHAT HURTS A CANDIDATE.JOHN MCCAIN NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT IN '08.

Anonymous said...

Get over it. John Laesch lost because he didn't appeal to enough voters; he didn't in '06 and won't in '08. So he needs to step aside & go back to Newark or wherever the hell else he claims to be from this week. If Dems ever want to win there needs to be an open, above-board method for vetting candidates, and that means criminal records & all.

I agree, also a candidate needs to be literate, articulate and the bio's checked for accuracy.

Despite his faults, Speaker Hastert was a great leader of the United States House of Representatives. It is such a shame that he won't be able to end his congressional service in the position he currently holds.
