LakeCountyEye Rebuttles TeamAmerica10th

Lake County can't get enough parades, and just as nature abhors a vacuum, Lake County abhors a parade vacuum. The proof is the mid-June vacuum separating the Memorial Day and Fourth of July parades that is stop-gapped by the Libertyville Father's Day Libertyville Days Parade.

Among noteworthy participants in Libertyville were the Republican operatives at the TeamAmerica10th blog:
Since I was marching and snapping photos, I can't say I saw the entire parade, but from what I did see, and many people that I asked, I did not see one Democrat organization or candidate marching. I would be happy to be corrected, but I just saw nothing from them at all, which is perhaps unsurprising in an off-election year when they don't need anything from the voters.

Your LakeCountyEye, it goes without saying, is happy to correct any blog that is happy to be corrected. So, if Facebook can be believed, then this should make for some happy blogging at TeamAmerica10th:

Libertyville Days Parade June 18, 2011
Incontrovertible photographic evidence indicates that Ilya Sheyman, a Democratic candidate for the 10th Congressional Distinct, was seen marching in Libertyville.

Your LakeCountyEye notes that some rare bloggers are indeed happy to be corrected. How many are happy to countenance a LakeCountyEye Rebuttles™?

Thanks, BB. I am indeed glad to see that the Lake County Blogging family is always looking out for each other. I am indeed pleased to update my post with your scumbuttles, or whatever you seem to want to call it.

And you are correct that I did indeed ask for evidence of Dems showing up to Libertyville Days. I'm not sure I can be held accountable for overlooking Mr. Sheyman, since he seems to have had a group of all of 10 people or so with him, however. And it appears that even the sharp-eyed parade watchers at LCE didn't see any other Dems besides Sheyman. A pretty poor showing by them, I'd say.
