Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

While Labor Day marks the traditional start of the election season, in Lake County that honor goes to Libertyville Days. Every summer, ops and hopefuls from both political parties march in the Libertyville Days parade. And every summer, the Tea-Party-istes at the TeamAmerica10th blog handicap the field for the benefit of subscribers to their Internet tip-sheet.

This year TeamAmerica10th blundered by missing an easy call, which your LakeCountyEye quickly rectified:
LakeCountyEye Rebuttles TeamAmerica10th
As a precaution against future embarrassment, your LakeCountyEye has compiled an Internet widget that local bloggers are invited to use for posting any forthcoming Libertyville Days Parade reports. Simply select one item from each section, paste the items together, and post next year. Report the parade without ever having to leave your basement! All items are 100% recycled material from past posts. More importantly the finished result is guaranteed accurate to under one standard deviation:

Look for your LakeCountyEye -- where else? -- at the next Libertyville Days Parade.

Thanks, BB, all this attention is making this humble blogger blush.

But, I think the main thing your post proves is that, year after year, the Lake County GOP is consistently strong, while the Dems struggle for consistency of message and candidates, at least in the Libertyville area.

And describing us over at Team America as "tea-party-ists" or whatever, really gives the actual tea partiers a chuckle. Almost as funny as trying to label Bob Dold a tea partier. You are doing quite a public service, especially since Zanies in Vernon Hills is now no more.
