    I think that is why he is seen as a problem. Because so many, like you, are so sympathetic.

    Oooh sorry. Did I take your quote out of context? Nah, I don't think so.

    I don't sympathize, I emphasize. I don't believe what he is doing is right, but I'm pretty in his heart he feels it is right. Of course, I would actually have to meet the man to ascertain that for certain.

    The guy who ran this is loved by the ultra right wing in Illinois. There the one's who got Allen Keys to run against Barak in 2006. Most people in the state were embarresed that Keyes got 30% of the vote back then. This moron will be destroyed by the real republicans in Illinois.

Of course, this is just my idle speculation. But based on what I have heard of the character of the man, not being allowed to serve a a lawyer in Illinois, I believe it is likely that he does honestly believe this is the best way to serve the people of Illinois.
    McCarthy ostracized himself from the Republican party too, and the end of his so called Communist witch hunts, claiming that he was "honest" too. That did not make him a good person either.

    Suicide bombers are willing to die for their cause, but I don't exactly admire them for their dedication, impressive as it might be. Instead I look down upon them for being evil morons, much like this clown.

    Well I can admire anyone who fights for what they believe in, even if it something incredibly dumb.

    Is there really someone called "Allen Keys"? I means does he screw up a lot? Is he always getting lost? Is he Swedish and works in IKEA? He hasn't got a brother named "Phillip" has he?
