Trib for Duckworth

You’d think there’d be something in this Trib endorsement of Duckworth about her being parachuted into the district by Rahm Emanuel and having no experience in public office.  Wait, that latter sow’s ear is made a silk purse: she’s a refreshing change from politicians!  And Roskam once was venal!  And she’s an apt successor to Henry Hyde, “one of the great voices of conservatism” and a politician since he was in knickers!  Zowie!

Henry Hyde was certainly one of the great voices of conservatism, and Duckworth is certainly not a conservative. But Hyde, despite being a politician was honest and voted according to his own conscience rather than always following the party line. Duckworth will be doing the same after she is in the House.
