During his remarks at the state fair yesterday, Rep. John Shimkus fully embraced the Republicans' growing image as the "party of no," declaring that "Just say no" is going to be the GOP's "chant from now until Election Day, because we've been saying no for a long time." 

Well, good luck with that, congressman.


SHIMKUS: You know there's a chant going on in America right now. And you know, it's really not a Republican chant yet. But it's a Republican chant by the grassroots America that are attending thousands of townhall meetings. And as congressmen enter these townhall meetings, what is the public saying to them? They are saying, "Just say no. Just say no. Just say no."

Now, Republicans -- that is going to be our chant from now until Election Day, because we've been saying no for a long time.

As an aside, notice how Shimkus -- after bringing up "control of the House of Representatives in D.C." -- kind of dances around the issue of the Senate race.  He doesn't even say the word "Senate," let alone mention Mark Kirk's name.
