State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka will attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony this Monday for an exhibit at the Thompson Center celebrating the 400th anniversary of the publication of Cervantes' "Don Quixote."
Topinka is a potential Republican candidate for governor in '06. Maybe she thinks she can cut into Gov. Blagojevich's Hispanic voting base with this stunt. Someone should tell her Cervantes was from Spain not Latin America.
This is the same state party that gave us paranoiac Jim Oberweis, who claimed the number of illegal immigrants entering Illinois each day could fill Soldier Field. They need to start hiring those super-sharp young conservatives the Reader's so afraid of, or their motto will remain: "Illinois GOP: But I Put the Fact Sheet In Your In-Box!"
