Today I was going to write about Dan Seals, the perpetual Congressional Candidate from Illinois' 10th Congressional District who lives in the nearby 9th Congressional District, but I decided against it. Seals has run for office so many times
that writing about the latest revelations in his possible campaign shakeup
or his tainted political contributions
is about as exciting as clearing the leftovers from the back of the refrigerator, a task that occupied me for some minutes last night. Seals has spent so many years as a professional Congressional candidate that he now has lived in the area for almost long enough to escape the carpetbagger label which he so richly deserved in his first campaign.
Why Dan Seals thinks he can capably represent people in a community to which he has no roots nor ties is a glowing testament to the effectiveness of our nation's schools to give all children high self-esteem. So today you won't be hearing about Dan Seals, no, because everthing about him--until he pulls off another one of his signature frat-boy stunts
--is yesterday's news.
