N.b., I was going to put my reply to the following into the comments section with links to the MYTHBUSTERS, then decided this issue of my commitment to truth and our site’s commitment to courtesy deserved their own blog entry.

I notice that the first image conveniently didn’t include George Ryan’s picture but included him in small print at the bottom – a Republican who is also in jail. So it doesn’t matter if you are a Democrat or Republican, they are all corrupt! But this site is only one sided – typical BS!

My REPLY

Dear GK,

My first stop each day is at my Home Page, Fox News. Yesterday, I saw the headline about Blago and made this graphic, which I posted to Chrissy’s Site Bites and sent out to my email list:

My second stop each day is here to read the Grudge Report and catch up with my PoliNations buds. When I got here yesterday, Pete had already posted an illustrated blog about Blago’s conviction.

I saw no point in adding mine just because I’d already created it. The issue had been addressed. Plus I didn’t want to give Pete the impression that I thought his post wasn’t good enough.

I did think it would be fun to make a new graphic and blog it as a gift to poor, conservative Illinois Pete who suffers under the tender, loving governance of the Democrats who dominate his state’s corrupt politics.

True, I did not put a picture and box of data about the Republican. Four 4 boxes made the graphic crowded and difficult to read.

Also, the point of the blog entry was Obama’s choice to build his Democrat political career not in his home state, but in the very corrupt environment of Illinois politics, where Democrats dominate.  I didn’t have to add the line at the bottom about the Republican, but I have a commitment to honesty.

I make no apologies for my beliefs or the fact that I spend most of my graphicking energy targeting the people I want out of office. But I resent being accused of “typical BS” when I also spend my precious time making graphics like these.
