A federal judge has ruled that Illinois has to hold a special election for the remainder of Obama's senate term (all six or seven weeks of it come November). So we have two senate elections: one for the six weeks and one for the regular six year term. Since there's no time for a primary, they're allowing the parties to choose for themselves who to put on the ballot. Both major parties are expected to run their "real" senate candidates in both slots.

So not only do I not want to vote for either of those idiot jokers but now I'm expected to vote for them twice.

There's an obvious Illinois/Chicago joke in there for you all.
