SPRINGFIELD STATE JOURNAL REGISTER
-- Voters don’t need term limits, they need to vote - Editorial  (DIERSEN: What do you say to those who a) voted for Blagojevich in 2002 and/or 2006, b) voted for Obama in 2004, 2008, and/or 2012, c) voted for Quinn in 2010, and/or d) will vote for Quinn in 2014?)
http://www.sj-r.com/article/20140823/OPINION/140829766
(FROM THE EDITORIAL: The best way for people to express their dissatisfaction with politicians and incumbents is to get involved in the electoral process by casting a vote, running for office or supporting their favorite candidates with money or time. This isn’t the first time a candidate eager to get change-hungry voters to the polls has offered term limits as a solution, but voters have a better choice: cast a ballot.)

-- Obama's vacation ends - Mario Trujillo
http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/215850-obamas-vacation-ends
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Republican National Committee blasted him on the brief return as well, noting the high price tag of any presidential travel. "He spent about a million in taxpayer dollars to fly back from Martha's Vineyard on Air Force One to take a few pictures," RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said. "Then it was back to vacationing and the golf course.")
-- RNC blasts Obama's golfing: 'Where are his priorities?' - Mario Trujillo  (DIERSEN: What do you do that impacts other people?  What are your priorities?  My priorities include putting a GOPUSA ILLINOIS email together each and every morning and sending it to you free of charge and without any advertising.  What do you say to those who demonize, denigrate, and condemn me and my priorities?)

WASHINGTON FREE BEACON
-- Michael Madigan Spokesman Steve Brown Compares Republicans to ISIL in ALS Challenge Response - Adam Kredo
http://freebeacon.com/politics/ill-dem-compares-republicans-to-isil-in-als-challenge-response/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A spokesman for the Illinois Democratic Speaker of the House drew comparisons between Republicans and the terror group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) after being nominated to take the ALS bucket challenge. A spokesman for Michael Madigan oddly brought ISIL into the equation after Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner challenged Madigan to take the viral ALS ice bucket challenge in a video posted on his Facebook page. When reached for comment on the challenge, Madigan spokesman Steve Brown asked the Chicago Sun-Times if Rauner and other Republicans would be hiring ISIL to investigate issues of voter fraud in Illinois. The comment apparently refers to claims by a local resident that he was confronted by an armed private investigator who was looking into allegations of voter fraud allegedly perpetuated by Democrats.)
BIZPAC REVIEW
-- A little extreme?  National Review editor Rich Lowery says Republicans backing amnesty ‘should be shot, hanged’ - Tom Tillison  (DIERSEN: What jobs have you had that anti-Whites, anti-conservatives, anti-Republicans, and/or anti-Americans argue that Americans like me will not do?  I washed dishes 1964-1966; cleaned golf shoes, chipped slag, and pumped gasoline in 1966; delivered mail 1966-1969; worked on an automobile assembly line and as a security guard in 1970; sold tires 1970-1971; pumped gasoline 1971-1972; collected delinquent taxes 1971-1980; and audited federal agencies 1980-1997.)
http://www.bizpacreview.com/2014/08/24/a-little-extreme-national-review-editor-says-republicans-backing-amnesty-should-be-shot-hanged-141115
(FROM THE ARTICLE: While participating in a panel discussion on immigration this week, the editor of National Review said Republicans who claim there are jobs Americans won’t do “should be shot” and “hanged.”  Rich Lowry said the GOP cannot claim to be the party of workers if it supports immigration reform that brings in more low-skilled workers, be it legal or illegal. “The Republican Party cannot truly be the party of work — and the party of workers — the way it should be, if it’s insistent on importing ever higher levels of low-skilled labor to compete with native and immigrant workers down the income scale who are already here,” he said. Taking his rhetoric to the extreme, Lowry shared what he thinks should happen to Republicans who push the myth that there are jobs Americans wont do as a reason to deliver immigration reform. “The next time I hear a Republican strategist or a Republican politician say there are jobs that Americans won’t do, that person should be shot,” he said. “He should be hanged, he should be wrapped in a carpet and thrown in the Potomac River. You know that’s what they did to Rasputin, I think it was a different river. But let me tell you, it worked.” Considering the left claims the Republican Party is the party of old, white men, there’s little chance Lowry will be accused of racism for saying they should “be hanged.”)
