Goodbye and good riddance – again

Jim-Allen-Illinois-GOP-sizedWhile we’re on the subject of politicians quitting…

An Illinois GOP county chairman has resigned after saying stupid things.

Jim Allen, the chairman of the Montgomery County GOP, compared former Miss America Erika Harold to a “street walker” whose “pimps” were Democrats and moderate Republicans.

Classy guy.

Harold, the 2003 Miss America and a former Chicago attorney, is running against a sitting Republican congressman in next year’s primary election.

Allen later told a newspaper his comments were “very inappropriate” and said he had apologized to Harold and her supporters.

Unfortunately, one does no pull one’s foot out of one’s mouth that easily.

The Republican Party continues to suffer from fool’s like this.

It’s not to say the Democrats don’t have people saying damn fool things.
It does.

But it seems nowhere near the number of Republicans.

This is no way to capture the Senate and the White House.
