Wednesday night at the beginning of a debate between Democratic incumbent Melissa Bean, GOP challenger Joe Walsh and Green Party candidate Bill Scheurer. The debate for Illinois 8th congressional district took place at Grayslake Central High School. While League of Women Voters moderator Kathy Tate-Bradish began explaining the rules of the debate an audience member raised his hand and (when called upon) asked if they were going to start with the Pledge of Allegiance. When she said no, the audience booed and almost all in the crowd of more than 300 stood and enthusiastically recited it anyway.

RTWT. The Lid goes on to expose Kathy Tate-Bradish as a partisan hack, Obama and ACORN tool, whose actions stand in stark contrast with the mission of, well, any non-partisan organization, as well as the common-sense guidelines that form the basis of public debate.

This blog decries the idiocy on display, and re-affirms its commitment to positive affirmations of national identity, for example, the Pledge of Allegiance. Joe Walsh, the GOP candidate in IL-8, gets a shout-out to the atrocious Tate-Bradish from his namesake:
