The Committee to elect Rickey Hendon for Illinois’s next Lieutenant Governor, the second highest office in the land of Lincoln, has just released a powerful, hard hitting radio ad evidently designed to not only highlight the Democrat’s numerous accomplishments as an Illinois State Senator for the last 16 years but also to bring those who may be unfamiliar with the man on board and into the fold.

Speaking of accomplishments, I made a beeline to Democrat Mr. Hendon’s official Illinois State General Assembly webpage and was absolutely blown away with the overwhelming amount of qualifying material for the job of Lieutenant Governor I happened to find there!
Actually the glaring lack of qualifications Mr. Hendon possesses for the job he is seeking reminds me of another equally unqualified for the job Illinois State Senator who now happens to live in our White House.

Biography: Born December 8, 1953, in Cleveland, Ohio. Attended Farragut High School, (Chicago) 1969-1970. Youngest African American male ever appointed to serve as Assistant Majority Leader in the Illinois State Senate. His softball team, The Fighting 5th, competed in the National ASA Tournament coming in 7th out of 40 teams in Iowa in 2006. The Fighting 5th played and won two championships as well.
Wait, WHAT? This man “attended” high school for what a year or so and brags about a being on a freakin softball team? Really, is this it? Is this all the guy has? Is this who the people of Illinois really want representing them in state government? Is Mr. Hendon, don’t get me wrong now folks because I’m sure is one peachy fella to hang out with, trying to take advantage of the fact that the current president, a fellow Illinoisan, is just as unqualified for the job as the one he is seeking?
By the way, how many times did you have to listen to this thing before you could understand what the hell was being said?
