Hot Damn! The First Mayoral Poll...

Somebody better figure out quick how to convince a number of minority-coalition candidates to back off their bid, otherwise Emanuel is going to run away with this thing. A poll conducted for Chicago Teamsters Joint Council 25 in the upcoming Chicago mayoral race shows former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel far ahead of... Read more »

Dems To Make Trouble For Mark Kirk?

Weirdly, it seems that Illinois’ official process for certifying the Senator-elect will prevent Mark Kirk from taking his seat in Washington until well after the lame duck session has started. I could be outrageously outraged with outrage on this particular subject, but if you didn’t expect some monkey business was in store for the Republican... Read more »

It's Morning In America, Bitches.

Or afternoon. Whatever. I don’t even care. Actually, I sort of do, but I am as hungover as you can possibly be without consuming any alcohol. I even sound like Judy Baar Topinka. Go figure. Personally, I’m still digesting what happened last night, and what continues to happen in the hallowed halls of Brady HQ.... Read more »

It's HERE.

Okay, so what do you need to know for today? Other than that THIS IS MY SUPERBOWL? Well, first of all, you need to know that I have a day job which will prevent me from hanging around all day providing you with important information….at least not in this format. For up to the minute... Read more »

24 Hours Until The Polls Close And Other Stories

All of the candidates are busy puddle-jumping across the state of Illinois, hoping to win your vote between in-flight meals. Bill Brady and Pat Quinn are desperate to show you they happen to be different. Everyone else is hoping you’re too drunk to notice you voted for them. At this point, they and I have... Read more »

Democrats Accidentally Suppress Their Own Mail-In Voters

An Illinois county election official is telling the ABC 7 I-Team that thousands — potentially hundreds of thousands — of voters who are expecting a ballot sent to them... Read more »

Is This What Mark Kirk Was Talking About?

Mark Kirk is getting his ass kicked over comments that he made alluding to a vote fraud-prevention operation that he and the ILGOP are spearheading on the South Side of Chicago – an operation which will involve, among other terrifying things, “lawyers and other people.” The Republican National Lawyers Association may be involved as well...

Alexi Giannoulias: Stupid Is the Best Case Scenario

It’s no secret that I like Mark Kirk and I may or may not have helped him and his fantastic head of hair and incredibly well tailored suits out once or twice over the last few months, but what I’m about to show you has absolutely nothing to do with how awesome I think Mark... Read more »

Mark Kirk Opponents Are Clearly Desperate for Airtime

OK, let’s analyze this ridiculous story from ABC7 that insinuates that Mark Kirk should be required to apologize for (1) insinuating that Chicago precincts have voter fraud problems and (2) using the word “jigger.” OH MY GOD. There’s VOTER FRAUD in CHICAGO? Who could POSSIBLY THINK THAT. Certainly not anyone with any experience handling elections... Read more »

Alexi Giannoulias Has a Bad Hair Day

Both President Obama and his wife Michelle will be in town this week to campaign for Alexi Giannoulias, he on the 7th, she on the 13th. Obviously, the Giannoulias campaign is desperate for cash because, with Obama’s approval ratings sagging, Democrats across the country are regularly shunning his advances. Alexi, who is running neck and... Read more »
