GOPUSA ILLINOIS Daily Clips - April 23, 2008

-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: Republican State Representatives Bellock, Coladipietro, Fortner, Meyer, Pihos, and Reboletti to hold an open forum on the state's financial condition at 7:00 PM this evening at the Wheaton Community Center Auditorium. Very sadly, Democrats will call for tax increases for all kinds of programs. However, everyone knows that Blagojevich will use any increased tax revenue earmarked for "education" or for "capital improvement" or for anything else instead for programs that will attract people to Illinois who have severe health, financial, and other problems.,6_1_NA23_TOWNHALL_S1.article

-- Underground links likely to resurface for Obama - John Kass,1,4967065.column
(FROM THE COMMENTARY: Broadway Baby was not mentioned during the Democratic infighting in Pennsylvania. But Broadway Baby - once a chic children's boutique in Manhattan's Upper West Side - is the future, if Barack Obama is the presidential candidate in the fall. This story involves two Chicagoans, former Weather Underground terrorist leaders Bernardine Dohrn and her husband, William Ayers, both Obama supporters who blessed his initial foray into politics. Last week, the unrepentant Ayers became a flash point in Obama's debate with Hillary Clinton. "And what they [Weather Underground] did was set bombs and in some instances people died," said Clinton, sweetly playing the white terrorist card. "I know Sen. Obama is a good man and I respect him greatly, but I think this is an issue that certainly the Republicans will be raising."')
