Last Presidential debate. Breaking news. TV networks have announced the Presidential debate will NOT be broadcast in Illinois. Due to 5 million of Chicago's 3 million registered voters having already cast an absentee ballot for Obama (not including ballots in the trunks of union bosses and precinct committeemen for emergency use if Obama is trailing) and the Bears playing Monday Night Football it didn't make any sense to televise the debate. Downstate will have the option to tune into the Cardinals game since their votes don't count or won't be counted anyway. That is all. Carry on.
