Meet Alex Armour, Jan Schakowsky’s (D, IL-09) CoS.
…judging from his Twitter account (H/T: The Campaign Spot) Armour despises and loathes the roughly 60-70% of the population* of the United States that had a problem with the Ground Zero Mosque. Extra points: Armour apparently also thinks that the expression of said problem demonstrates an ignorance of the purpose of the First Amendment, instead of it being what the First Amendment is for. I note “extra points” because Armour probably ran around yelling about how dissent was the highest form of patriotism, back when he was fighting the establishment instead of cashing its checks. He seems the sort who would do that.
Here’s the screenshot, for when Armour takes down the tweet: it uses too many obscenities to be safe for work. The real question is, of course, whether Jan Schakowsky agrees with her own Chief of Staff: if the answer’s no, she should probably say so quickly. Note that I am not calling for any kind of sanction, though. Unlike Armour (and apparently Schakowsky), I respect these fools’ right to sound like fools in public…

PS: Joel Pollak for IL-09. Not a fool.
*No real national polling on this recently, sorry.
