A Democrat, Bill Foster, beat a ReThug in Dennis Hastert's district. That would be the Hastert who was the Speaker of the House, a protege of the indicted Tom DeLay. Now, if the one of the two candidates left in the Democratic nomination process will quit being an asshole to the other candidate, we will have a long term lock on both the Congress & the Presidency. Remember, Mr. Foster won in Hastert's old seat, a conservative district, a district of farmers who always vote against their own interests. Or maybe it was the typical ReThug earmark for myself policy that got the GOP in trouble.
