ILLINOIS GOP NET
-- Halvorson Smear Ad Pulled By Comcast - Mark W. Johnson
http://www.ilgopnet.com/node/1041
(THE POSTING: Statement from Illinois Republican Party Spokesman Lance Trover on Comcast Cable pulling the DCCC's false attack ad against Marty Ozinga: "The Illinois Republican Party confirmed Friday that the latest false attack ad against Marty Ozinga has been pulled by Comcast cable systems for being, well, a false attack ad. If voters had any doubt that the negative attacks from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC)-Halvorson team are brazenly bereft of truth, this latest development should remove those doubts. Throughout this campaign, Debbie Halvorson has chosen to hide her record as Rod Blagojevich's favorite Springfield politician behind false, negative and personal smears. Halvorson should stop her false and negative attack campaign and start talking about the issues that matter to Illinois families.")

CHAMPION NEWS
-- Illinois Democrats making no secret of their travels to battleground states - Doug Ibendahl
http://www.championnews.net/article.php?sid=1217
(FROM THE ARTICLE: And the outflow of volunteers is surely only going to increase as Election Day gets closer. While what currently passes for the GOP leadership here spent much of this year actually trying to prevent good Republicans from becoming delegates to our state convention in June - and then put on a horribly rigged affair for those who did slip past the roadblocks - the Democrats have been pouring out of Illinois to help their nominee. While State GOP Chair Andy McKenna, Jr. has done basically nothing for almost four years beyond trying to squash reform of the Illinois GOP - even going so far as to make up a ridiculous policy that says if you don't publicly support even the corrupt GOP officials you can't use the word "Republican" - the Democrats have been free to go elsewhere to stop our leading reformers, McCain and Palin. . .While most every other State GOP has been doing serious grassroots work like holding "Super Saturdays" this summer where volunteers go door-to-door to identify McCain/Palin voters in advance of the final November election push, Illinois Republicans have been treated to spectacles like Chairman of the County Chairmen's Association Randy Pollard screaming at Chris Lauzen and Jim Oberweis at the Decatur convention when they both spoke in favor of returning to direct elections for the State GOP's Central Committee. Maybe that kind of buffoonish behavior makes Mr. Pollard a "big man" around the state prison chow hall where he works, but it's incredibly destructive to the efforts of those of us who are actually trying to rebuild this party and attract real professionals. Needless to say, that kind of behavior harms McCain and Palin too.)

ASSOCIATED PRESS
-- DIERSEN HEADLINE: AP discusses the results of its "deep-seated racial misgivings" poll. AP outrageously fails to acknowledge a) that for many decades, Democrats have shouted at minorities, especially at blacks, that Republicans, especially older white conservative Republicans, caused all their past, present, and future problems and b) that tragically, 90% or so of blacks believe the Democrats' disgusting destructive false racist argument.
