She's one of the few good people in IL politics, it's a shame. Kirk Dillard seized this news as an opportunity to look like an idiot-

Republican state Sen. Kirk Dillard kicked off his run for governor in Hinsdale today, where Madigan was a topic of discussion.

"She's been a good attorney general and if she wants to stay there, that's fine," Dillard said. "With Lisa Madigan out of the race, it clearly makes this at least an even, if not a Republican-tilting field. Personally, I'm glad she's not going to be my opponent in the general election. I believe my chances are better with Pat Quinn or someone else than Lisa Madigan. I look forward to having Lisa Madigan as attorney general when I'm the governor."

Dillard clearly forgot about his own party's announced candidate for attorney general: DuPage County State's Atty. Joe Birkett.

Hi Eyelids.
We missed you yesterday, are you all recovered from mourning over the California Fruit Planting Ceremony?
