That’s the news going around. “December or January” is the most detailed info so far. Anyway, you know what that means: special election!

“Republicans are already locked in a hard-fought primary. But Democratic Gov. Rod Blagojevich could fast-track that intramural contest in order to schedule the special on the same day as the state’s Feb. 5 primary – when Illinois Sen. Barack Obama will be on the ballot in his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.”

The people at Laesch for Congress are already excited. You remember John Laesch, don’t you?

As a side note, this picture of Hastert bearing down on a photographer is one of my favorite pictures ever.

Run for your lives!
