Tonight Mitt Romney will be in Vernon Hills, IL tonight at a town-hall meeting. It's important to note that this is Lake County, not the famous (or to a lot of Ricochet fans, infamous) Cook County. I imagine Willard has Chicago's county locked up, while the suburbs might need to be nudged a little more in his favor. My parents are going to this event so if anything interesting happens, I'll find out (perhaps he'll have glitter thrown on him).
Speaking of glitter-bombs, a big story making its way around the web today is about two men interrupting a Rick Santorum speech (shouting "Mr. Santorum!" repeatedly) and kissing each other after getting the audience's attention. After disrupting the speech they were ejected from the school's auditorium.
I take James Delingpole's position on the issue of same-sex marriage (he discussed it in his latest podcast), but this was just silliness. If members of the LGBTQQIAAP community would like to raise awareness for some upcoming vote on same-sex marriage in the state of Illinois, that wasn't the time or place. But of course this wasn't about some specific law for a district or state to vote on, this was just about rabble-rousing and picking on people who (God forbid) might actually disagree with that specific special-interest minority group.
