He took the unusual and mysterious step of making a video aired on Illinois commercial TV stations informing everyone how nasty the GOP is and that, “In the fights that lie ahead, Democrats are on your side.”

So, fair being fair, if Madigan wants to air his video, here's one that he most assuredly doesn't want watched:

  • Let's hear it for a progressive state income tax for Illinois.
