An Obama Cheer Me Up

This is circulating on the web these days and has hit my inbox with some regularity. Since our late night comedians often inject truth into their monologues you might want to consider what they are saying*. (*See disclaimer at bottom).

Political Robocalls Annoying But Did Help Me Decide - To Skip Illinois Primary
I don’t know about you, but robocalls annoy me and that is why registered with the Do Not Call Registry. Unfortunately, the brains behind the Act excluded political robocalls.

Illinois Primary Matters To GOP Candidates - Not Sure If Candidates Do. But Hey, Illinois Needs Change Bad!
