Not one bit hateful, at all, just educated.
I know exactly who Tammy Duckworth is. Rahm Emanuel helped finance her campaign while sacrificing 3 other vialble Democrats. He had Dem funds funneled to her, although she outspent her Republican opponent by more than a million dollars, she lost. She didn't live in the Sixth Congressional district, the voters didn't like that too much.
She also came a bit "unhinged" in her race against Peter Roskam.

Do your homework.

No district requirement hunny bunny .... she was a victim of angry Dupage county republicans. And considering that she was a newbie to politics, I'd say she's come a long way in a short short time.

And if you're educated, Tammy Duckworth is in spades ... she's no hack.

Put the bitter pills back in the cabinet.

Read again, wooly fooly, I never said there was a residency requirement.

I said she didn't live in the 6th District, I know she lives in Illinois and that's all that's required. She's just another member of the Democratic machine who used her Rahm connections in an to attempt to be elected.

She wasn't breaking the law schmoopie. Again, she was a victim of the DuPage County gestapo. The only thing good about that place is the COD radio station.

Tammy Duckworth is a GREAT pick. Too bad Blago didn't appoint HER to the Senate in Obama's place. Anyone who can't like this heroic veteran must be sick, oh wait, we know the GOP is sick with hate.
