Turn Out For Holperin, Wirch

Hat's off to the organizers, home-grown and visiting, who are working like demons today to help Jim Holperin, Conover, and Bob Wirch, Kenosha, hold their seats against a Tea Party talk radio host and Chicago-based corporate attorney, respectively.

Let's not water down last week's gain of two Democratics in the State Senate, or give the forces of Karl Rove and Grover Norquist anything to celebrate.

The elections of the 9th were not a knockout, but the GOP took a major body blow. Momentum is on the Democrats' side, with much work left to do.

Major body blow? More like a graze to the top of the head... but nice spin.

Any word on when we can see something on Wirch's "Pants on Fire" rating from Politifact?

I guess you just can't bring yourself to do it.
