Attention Tammy Duckworth Team: It's Baghdad, Not Bagdad

You'd think that the staff at Tammy Duckworth's US Senate campaign would catch something like this:  the spelling of Baghdad on her announcement.  After all, this moment is SOOOOOOOO central to the Tammy Duckworth story and campaign.  

You'd think they'd spell the city where the incident occurred properly.

But...alas...they didn't get it right.  From her campaign site comes this screenshot:

Fumbled announcement.  Spelling errors.  Seems like we're going to have plenty to cover on this race.

Tammy Duckworth Fumbles US Senate Rollout

All this 'yes she is', 'no she isn't', doesn't portray the Tammy Duckworth for United States Senate campaign in the best light.  Clearly...NOT the *worst* campaign rollout (ahem...Mike Frerichs), but not a good start for her campaign.  Why would you give her dough when she can't even get this straight?

Rich Miller, over at CapitolFax, labels this fumbled campaign announcement 'somewhat odd' and we have to agree.

Duckworth, will be facing off against Senator Mark Kirk - who is seeking re-election.  We'll be watching the Duckworth/Kirk race closely as we hope it will give us as much material as the Frerichs for Treasurer race ever did.

For Shame, Rahm. Earmuffs On Election Day? Really?

As we all know, real men don't wear earmuffs, Mr. Mayor.

What were Rahm Emanuel's handlers thinking?  Sending him out to greet voters sportin' a sweet pair of 'muffs?  That's bad.

But, then boasting about it on Twitter?  Come on.  Haven't seen State Treasurer Mike Frerichs sporting them since last winter.  He learned his lesson.

Governor Pat Quinn To Process: Screw You Guys...I'm Going Home

Bravo Illinois Governor Pat Quinn.

Way to head out on a high note.

Mr. Treasurer: You've Learned Your Lesson!

Well, well, well...look at what Mr. Mike Frerichs - our newest Illinois State Treasurer showed up wearing at a Habitat for Humanity build this weekend:  gasp!  Work clothes!?!

Good for him.  He's clearly learned his lesson from the last time he did one of these things:  he wore a suit to the last one and we ridiculed him for it endlessly this past year.

But...as we learned the hard way...it didn't really matter.  Oh well.   The Truth Team did everything we could, but now we wish Mike well in his new job.  The State of Illinois is counting on you.

Congrats, Mike.  Here's hoping you don't wear any earmuffs on big inauguration day today!
