Any red-blooded American, reading the lead paragraphs of the Dispatch/Argus endorsement editorial regarding Illinois Senate District 36, who has a concern for good government, who appreciates demonstrated valor, values and commitment, who has a scintilla of awareness of what is wrong with Illinois and its political establishment, would presume that the D-A was indeed going to endorse change for Illinois in the person of Bill Albracht.|
However only a newspaper that wants to occasionally posture about what is wrong with Illinois can end those paragraphs transitioning to lending its "official" support to the epitome of what is wrong with Illinois, a son of a lobbyist, a political hack in a state that continues to bring new and more disreputable meaning to the term.
The D-A in its support for Mike Jacobs is essentially promoting what is wrong with Illinois. The newspaper has exposed itself, belying its concerns about Illinois government. Reading your own comments "justifying" the endorsement of Jacobs one can only conclude that the newspaper's endorsement has been bought and paid for with taxpayer money. How utterly pathetic given Illinois problems.
People who do want change in Illinois, to keep it from going over the financial precipice, will read the first paragraphs and conclude, the one with the courage to deliver for Illinois, benefiting our area in far reaching ways, by putting the state on a sound financial path rather than a bankrupt Amtrak line, is Bill Albracht.
