Roskam Supporters Cut and Run from Comments About Roskam's Cut and Run Comments?

NW Burbs -- I suspect that's a pseudonym -- reports that the pro-Pete forces know that the Creepster's absurd "cut and run" mischaracterization of Maj. Duckworth was a big mistake and they are now trying to smother its discussion:
Background: Dave Diersen (a DuPage GOP operative) culls news clippings, letters to the editor and video and podcast links for a little Illinois Review ditty he likes to call GOPUSA ILLINOIS Daily Clips. Today's Daily Clips included a link to the Scott Fornek he-said/she-said piece on Roskam's cutandrun quip.

I put up a post in response to this article, which Diersen promptly deleted for reasons sadly known only to him. I've since reposted it, but am quite certain in his radical righty rage he'll just delete again.

Anyway, here's my post in response to Roskam and McLaughingstock's claim that Roskam never said Major Duckworth wanted to cut and run:

Regarding the Sun-Times story "Duckworth camp: 'Cut and run' crude; Roskam team: He never said that of her Iraq stance"

Folks, you can listen to the tape of the WBBM debate.

Peter Roskam said "The 6th Congressional District is not a cut-and-run district. It is not a timetable district."

He may not of said she advocated "cut and run" but that is clearly what he is implying.

Of course, according to the Illinois state GOP leaving Iraq sooner rather than later is a (quote) "principled" stance. The GOP sent out a mailer saying 8th District candidate Bill Scheurer is "principled" for wanting to leave Iraq ASAP.

Maybe Roskam needs to get in touch with the GOP to get the latest talking points accurately.
I can't help but think that the Roskam camp might not be stumbling down the stretch so much if they had participated in a primary campaign rather than using their massive war-chest to bully the moderate Republicans off the ballot.

Maybe third time's the charm. Or maybe Diersen's taking a siesta.

Illinois Review has now left my (re-)post up for 40 minutes and counting...

I wouldn't be surprised if they stopped censoring that post now that they've been called out.


PS: My real name is N. W. Burbs. Check my license. OK, not really. You caught me -- it is a pseudonym. But at least you know where I live (NW Champaign suburbs... Wait, no. I mean Chicago suburbs. That's it.) :)

Oh, and Illinois Reviewers, I don't have an older brother (regular Review readers will understand).

Update - Sad. NW Burbs was wrong. Dave Diersen chose to censor the re-post. Disturbing.

(Diersen has a thing for pronouns-as-sentence and talking in the third person. Maybe he likes Bob Dole.)
