And Illinois Democrats think they deserve to be re-elected.

The Republican Party has a new campaign commercial out and it's a good one. It harkens back to when top state Democrats--including now Gov. Pat Quinn, Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan, Treasurer and senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias, and House Speaker Mike Madigan were arm and arm in support of Gov. Rod Blagojevich. 

In November, Illinois voters have a chance to demonstrate that they aren't as stupid as Democrats take them for. 
This video is worth watching just for its clever use of pop songs to make its point.
