Cougar For Congress! Which Lady of Illinois' Twelfth Congressional District Will Claw Her Way to Capitol Hill?

Posted By on Thu, Jan 21, 2010 at 2:17 PM

One's a nurse. The other's a wedding planner. One's married to a veteran. The other's husband convinced her to enter the Riverfront Times' "Ask A Cougar" columnist competition.

Both are conservatives, vying to be on the GOP ticket in Illinois' Twelfth Congressional District race. Wait--did we just say what we think we said? A cougar competition?

That's right, patriots, Teri Davis Newman was once up for election, as the Quad-City Times put it yesterday, right here in this very paper. Newman, of Highland, tried out to pen our "Ask A Cougar" column back in 2008.

Though Newman didn't snare the spot, she proved herself a feisty competitor. And now her opponent in the Congressional race, Theresa Kormos, says the cougar bid disqualifies Newman from holding office.

"It goes back to her character," Kormos told the QC Times.

"She has the personality of a wet sponge," Newman retorted to the newspaper. "The whole thing is crap-ola. A big bowl of crap-ola."

Well! Certainly at least one of these women is good with, um, a wet sponge, which, as far as Unreal is concerned, could prove most handy up in Washington.

But in the true spirit of democracy, why don't we throw the vote to you? Which one of these sassy cats should claw her way to Capitol Hill? Vote after the jump.

Or just picture which one of these ladies would play nice with a wet sponge with the other boys and girls in Washington.
