Question of the day

Thursday, Mar 6, 2014

* Sen. Bill Brady’s lack of campaign cash has meant he’s mainly advertising on the Internet. Here’s a recent Facebook ad…

* And here’s one a buddy of mine saw while listening to Billy Idol…

* The Question: Where else could Bill Brady place ads? And what should they say?

    The sides of buses running through major cities.

    Just a big ol’ picture of him smiling.


  4. - Century Club - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:17 pm:

    Illinois Counties Association website seems like a natural. “Bill Brady, supporting 1 county 1 vote since 2010!”


  5. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:17 pm:

    “Ray’s Music Exchange”?


  6. - an innocent observer - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:17 pm:

    A laser projector that beams his campaign logo onto the moon.

    People from Paris to Manila will look towards the stars and know that they must vote for Bill Brady.


  12. - Mittuns - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:23 pm:

    A $5k claiming race at Hawthorne.

    How about an ad wall that appears before one of Buzzfeed’s journalistic masterpieces: “17 Unbelievably Cute Puppies Wearing Scarves You Won’t Believe Exist on Planet Earth”


  13. - Whatever - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:25 pm:

    A milk carton? After all, his campaign is missing in action.

    I’m sure someone has the ability, not me, to break into vehicle video screens, that way the youngsters of today can see the angst mom and dad have during an Illinois election cycle. Barf bags included


  19. - Wensicia - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:43 pm:

    Airplane banner.

    Unfortunately, it’s still too cold outside, so limited audience.

    Inside CTA buses and L trains


  21. - Boone's is Back - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:46 pm:

    He could pay girl scouts to have his ad on their cookie stands. It would say:

    “Bill Brady has been a long time supporter of thin mints. Bruce Rauner buys shortbread cookies and eats them with Rahm Emmanuel. Brady, the only choice for Gov”


  22. - Hans Sanity - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:48 pm:

  26. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:55 pm:

    On the side of a Greyhound:
    “Brady-He won’t throw you under Me!”


  27. - MrJM - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:55 pm:

    Brady should sponsor a cage fighter.

    – MrJM


  28. - CapnCrunch - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 12:58 pm:

  30. - No Buddies - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:02 pm:

    He should advertise at The Finish Line sporting store and the print ad should show him behind Gov Quinn at a finish line.


  31. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:03 pm:

    It is high time for Brady to push Rutherford off of every Emory Board across the state.

  34. - Anonymous - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    Billboards at local animal shelters. Well, maybe not the no-kill ones.


  35. - Mcleaniac - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    He could try Golf Cart placards on the carts at BCC. - oh wait - all those people have already bailed from his sinking ship.


  36. - Hans Sanity - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:10 pm:

    Power Tie Brigades.

    Brady supporters write, call, or e-mail at least a dozen other likely GOP Primary voters.

    Ties optional.

    Turn seed corn signs inside out and use the same poles with the message “Let’s make Illinois Grow Like Its Corn” (You could use soybeans too, but corn seems to provide a better visual image)


  40. - dupage dan - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:31 pm:

    The searchlight from Castle Anthrax. Brady could ask people to “vote me”.


  41. - arsonpi - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:31 pm:

    supported brady in the last race. he should have never ran this time. some peoples egos just get in the way of good judgement…..oh btw he did beat dillard that time but now we see him back….what ever happened to supporting the greater good instead of it being about me me me that’s why we keep being divided and diluted and losing


  42. - Big Joe - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:38 pm:

    At the bottom of an ad for Attorney Peter Francis Geraci


  43. - ThePartisan - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:47 pm:

    I can’t advise Mr. Brady on which venues would best fit his needs, but at this point, the message should be “My name is Bill Brady and I’m withdrawing from the Illinois gubernatorial primary.”


  44. - Walker - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 1:49 pm:

    ===== a milk carton ===

    Maybe Obie can help?


  45. - Siriusly - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 2:00 pm:

  47. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 2:02 pm:

    Gun range targets.


  48. - Liberty First - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 2:04 pm:

    Direct mail to primary voters is the best use of dollars. They should say I’m the only fiscal conservative in the race who is not mired down in corruption.


  49. - LGHB - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 2:41 pm:

    Milk cartons with the caption “Have you seen my 2010 donors?”

  51. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 3:25 pm:

    Sorry, I should have added the message on my suggested advertising placement:

    Free mints, compliments of Bruce Rauner.


  52. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 3:31 pm:

    47, thanks for that. Wearing Diet Coke all over my shirt.

  54. - RNUG - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 4:35 pm:

    Bumper stickers on Rauner’s cars?


  55. - RNUG - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 4:41 pm:

    Probably too late to take out an ad in the monthly AARP journal …


  56. - AFSCME Steward - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 5:42 pm:

    Inside a cave. If you are going to run an invisible campaign, do it right.

    State Fair Bathrooms and Goat Washing Stations


  58. - Just The Way It Is One - Thursday, Mar 6, 14 @ 9:06 pm:

    At this point, I think Bill should just keep that serious look on his face, go shake a lot of hands in the most Conservative towns in the State, and KEEP whatever he has left now to focus on his dedicated state Senatorial work while one day perhaps re-building his struggling Real Estate Business. He did QUITE well for himself as the GOP Standard Bearer in 2010, made Pat Quinn sweat until the very EVEning of the General Election, and can always be proud of the earnest 2 Races for the “Top Gun Job” in Illinois that he’s run…


  59. - VanillaMan - Friday, Mar 7, 14 @ 8:00 am:

    You forgot to add, “LOL” after that last post.
