Stay classy Oak Brook Village.

October 23, 2009

Constantine Xinos doesn’t like poor people. I say that not because I’m reading that statement into his actions, past and present, but because he actually said it. “I don’t want to live next to poor people. I don’t want poor people in my town.” If, as he contends, that he speaks for Oak Brook Village […]

Boehner-head maneuver.

October 22, 2009

House Minority Leader can’t find anyone who supports the public option. “I’m still trying to find the first American to talk to who’s in favor of the public option, other than a member of Congress or the administration,” said Rep.
