Doug is exactly right…think of the Surealism movement that began in the 1920s. It’s what we have now in Illinois politics 90 years later. From Doug Ibendahl:
Mike Madigan and the Illinois Democrats received very welcome news on Saturday. Pat Brady, the man who steered our Illinois Republican Party to a new rock bottom this year, remains at the helm.
Approximately 60 members of the Republican rank-and-file attended the State GOP’s meeting on Saturday in Bolingbrook (that’s in addition to the members of the State Central Committee and other party hangers-on). That’s an unusually high turn-out for one of these quarterly meetings. Almost all in attendance were there to express their no-confidence in Pat Brady. Nearly all hoped Brady would do the right thing and resign.
Unfortunately, Pat Brady still refuses to do the right thing. Brady rattled off some made-up accomplishments, and tried to take credit for fundraising – most of which represented monies the Romney campaign and Karl Rove-affiliated SuperPacs pulled out of Illinois for spending elsewhere.
There were also the same empty promises about the new-and-improved “outreach efforts” the party will put in place for next time.
