Pigs, wings, fly

* I happen to agree with Brady that he’s the second choice of lots of voters. I’ve been told about other polling that supports my theory.
But, really, so what?
If somebody magically gave Brady $2 million today I think he could make this a real race.
But the hard truth is nobody’s gonna give him that money.
* Dillard ain’t getting out of the race because he has the IEA cash keeping him afloat. Rutherford ain’t getting out because he doesn’t want to admit to wrongdoing.
This is all just fantasy talk.
* Maybe Brady can make a late run up the right side like he did in 2010, but Brady raised a whole lot more cash back then than he has this time.
Two members of my family are taking Republican ballots to “stop Rauner.” Trouble is, they have no idea what to do with that ballot. They had been for Rutherford, but not now. They don’t really know much about Dillard and they’re not exactly ideologically aligned with Brady (or Dillard, for that matter).
* So, hey, maybe there will be a gigantic surprise on primary day. But until Brady can demonstrate he can compete on the “real” playing field (TV) and not just show up for events and issue press releases, then what chance does he have?
Money talks, kids. And hope ain’t a plan, especially this late in the game.
