Question of the day

Friday, Mar 14, 2014

* From Aviva Bowen’s Facebook page

Election Day is Tuesday, and you know what that means! - the Running of the Political Cliches, brought to you by Masters of the Obvious. Today’s kick-off begins with an old favorite - “it all comes down to turnout.” Stories about the impact of weather and debates on undecided voters (spoiler: little to none) must be on the way.

Other favorites, fellow hacks and flaks?

(And reporter friends, I’m not dissing this story; it’s a good round-up. Just laughing at the headline.)

She then linked to a story with the headline: “Turnout could swing GOP race for Illinois governor.”

* Some of her comments…

Kevin Lampe: We have done everything, it is now up to the voters.

Scott Cisek: Winning comes at many levels.

Kyle Hillman: Something, something… Abraham Lincoln ….something, something

Will Caskey: Low turnout, voter apathy mark (election). Political science professor Dick Simpson said (sad panda).

Elizabeth Austin: This has been a hard-fought primary, but I think I can speak both for my team and for my opponent’s in saying that we are firmly united in our commitment to a (Democratic/Republican) win in November.

* The Question: Your favorite/least favorite political cliches?

    Signs don’t vote

    Until the last vote is counted


  2. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:44 pm:

    Cautiously optimistic


  3. - Perry Noya - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:44 pm:

    Least fave: Voters went to the polls under cloudy/sunny/snowy/rainy skies.
    Least fave: Has/lacks fire in the belly.
    Fave: Heck, I can’t think of one.


  4. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:45 pm:

    Undecideds will break after …


  5. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:46 pm:

    “X” has worn out his/her shoes, hitting the precincts.


  6. - Perry Noya - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:46 pm:

    OK, I thought of a fave:

    Democrats in disarray!


  7. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:48 pm:

    Well, we feel the momentum is on our side…


  8. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:48 pm:

    “Moral victory.”

    “Symbolic defeat.”


  9. - ??? - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:48 pm:

    “The only poll that counts is the one on election day.” (said by politicians whose support is in the single digits, of course)


  10. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:48 pm:

    The only poll that matters is the one taken from the People voting on Election Day


  11. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:48 pm:

    Before the polls open: Close elections are won or lost by two votes per precinct.

    After the polls close: You can’t blame anyone but the candidate for a loss this big.


  12. - Anonymous - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    It`s for the children.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    Sorry - ??? -.

    This was really a group effort showing how “X” brings people together


  14. - Capitol View - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    The suburban moms have spoken in favor of choice

    We have to stop: (Mike Madigan) (the Far Right agenda) (taxing and spending)


  15. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:51 pm:

    The people spoke


  16. - ??? - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:51 pm:

    Oswego Willy, no apologies needed. We were posting at the same time. Great minds think alike!


  17. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:53 pm:

    This (district/town/state/etc) made it clear it (favors/opposes) “x”


  18. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:54 pm:

    “Now let’s throw it to (clueless TV reporter) who is talking with someone who just voted.”


  19. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:54 pm:

    - ??? -,

    Careful, you may have the great mind, I will hop on for the ride.

    It’s a mandate.

    “Little known challenger faces uphill battle”


  21. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:55 pm:

    “It is clear that my (extremely narrow win) was a mandate from the people!”


  22. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:56 pm:

    What is the pulse in the precints?

    We are at (diner/greasy spoon/bar) where the talk about the election…


  23. - Jimmy CrackCorn - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:56 pm:

    The desecration of fine establishments for “sandwich summits,” “beer summits,” etc. between winner and loser.

    I just want a corned beef sandwich from Manny’s without having to shake hands with you dopes.


  24. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:57 pm:

    Absentee ballots could very well decide this race.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:59 pm:

    I think we made our case…


  26. - anonymoose - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 12:59 pm:

    At this point, least favorite….”fat lady” clearing her throat, getting ready, approaching the stage, etc. Various graphics usually accompany with a “Rubenesque” woman. Has no one even a thimble full of sympathy for the hefty “moose” size amongst us?


  27. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    “We’re going to prove the pundits and pollsters wrong.”


  28. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:01 pm:

    The experts are going to get this one wrong come Election Day

    We will be the last one standing

    Rich - sorry!

    EVERYONE counted us out…


  33. - ChinaTown - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:03 pm:

    “That’s not what we’ve been seeing, (reporter), and I think a lotta folks out there are going to be surprised. We’ve seen a lot of polls, but the only one that counts is the one they take on election day.”


  34. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:04 pm:

    Machine politics, plain and simple…


  35. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:05 pm:

    Chicago-Style


  36. - that guy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:05 pm:

    I’m going to hold my nose and vote for the guy who happens to belong to the same political party I’ve voted for in the past 20 elections. I’m really an independent but every election the other party nominates the most evil person on the planet. Maybe next time.


  37. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:07 pm:

    “Is the rain/snow/wind/hail/sleet/tornado/hurricane/flood/earthquake/mudslide having any effect on today’s voter turnout? We’ll talk about that right after the break…”


  38. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:07 pm:

    The vote was stolen from the people…

    (Cue Tony Peraica and storming the County Building)


  39. - Anonymiss - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:08 pm:

    “According to exit polls … [INSERT ANYTHING HERE]”


  40. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:08 pm:

    This is/isn’t a one issue candidate/campaign


  41. - ??? - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    TV reporter to viewing audience: “I’m standing here at the XYZ Elementary School, which is the polling place for [insert candidate name here]. Candidate and Mrs. Candidate are now walking into the polling place and requesting their ballots. Wait…ok…now they are entering the poll booths to cast their votes.”

    (5 minutes later) “Candidate and Ms. Candidate have finished voting and are now exiting the polling place, waving and smiling to supporters.”


  42. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    “Should Illinois give voters the option to choose ‘None of the Above’? (TV reporter) is with a voter right now to hear her opinion.”


  43. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    Irregularities seem to exist


  44. - Anonymous - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:10 pm:

    Not cliché exactly, but Archer is tops and substitute (name of candidate/politician) for his below:

    Cyril Figgis: How do you keep track of all these lies?
    Sterling Archer: Practice Cyril. Lying is like 95% of what I do.
    Cyril Figgis: In your job.
    Sterling Archer: Sure.


  45. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:10 pm:

    “(Insert random anything) is the backbone of Illinois.”


  46. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:11 pm:

    “Candidate ‘X’, who did you vote for? (Spouse), how are you holding up?”


  47. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:12 pm:

    So, now that the election is over, what will you do tomorrow?


  48. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:12 pm:

    Reporter: Did all the attacks bother you?


  49. - Wensicia - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:14 pm:

    “We’ll wait ’til every vote is counted!”, says the potential loser.


  50. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:15 pm:

    From an actual press release I just received…

    Jimmy Lee Tillman, II is the only candidate for the Republican nomination in the 1st Congressional District in Illinois primary. A political strategist and hip hop political talk show host, he founded the Martin Luther King Republicans organization.

    “Voters in Cook County and Illinois are eager for an alternative to the current all Democratic leadership that has delivered very little,” Tillman remarked, “It is important that our community is represented in both political parties and not neglected by either.”


  51. - OldSmoky2 - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:15 pm:

    “This campaign wasn’t about winning for me; it was a fight for the values that made this community/state/country great.”


  52. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:16 pm:

    We have learned from someone close to the campaign (candidate) did his/her usual routine this morning, bite with his/her (spouse), then, will then have lunch with supporters, and about 7 head to the VFW, where he/she started this journey and wait for the returns with supporters, family and close friends


  53. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:18 pm:

    OldSmoky2 for the lead!

  57. - Robert the Bruce - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:19 pm:

  58. - Responsa - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:23 pm:

    Standard Concession statement: X and I fought through a hard campaign and I wish him/her only the very best as he/she assumes office. I know he/she will work toward what’s best for the good citizens of this great county/state, district. (This usually after weeks of lies about the opponent’s record, vicious attack ads, yard signs being stolen or destroyed and opposing campaign staff and volunteers harassed. LOL)


  59. - Robert the Bruce - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:24 pm:

    (after a primary loss in a nasty primary)

    “I just got off the phone with ”

    (Crowd boos)

    “No no, we’re all united- is a good man. We need to work together to defeat !”

    Responsa, you said it better, we were typing with similar thoughts at same time!

    What was she thinking?


  62. - lake county democrat - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:26 pm:

    We faced powerful forces.


  63. - Carl Nyberg - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:27 pm:

    “My candidate is electable. The opponent can’t win the general election.”

    That would be one of my least favorite cliches in politics.

    It presumes to speak for a group of voters whom the speaker doesn’t speak for.


  64. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:28 pm:

    We were outspent, but we weren’t outworked!


  65. - Carl Nyberg - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:29 pm:

    Related: when someone claims to speak for the people who don’t vote.


  66. - A guy... - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:29 pm:

    It’s a funny shaped ball, you never know where it will bounce.


  67. - Carl Nyberg - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:30 pm:

    And when fringe candidates boast about the ratio of dollars to votes in a losing effort where the candidate did little campaigning beyond getting his/her name on ballot.


  68. - Smoggie - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:31 pm:

    Proft-Backed Candidates Loses


  69. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:34 pm:

    And I want to thank my family, for supporting me with all the missed (list of kid events,/birthdays/anniversary) and never complained, knowing how important this campaign is to so many in (district/county/state). I can never thank them enough.


  70. - Jake From Elwood - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:35 pm:

    “Hanging chad” or
    “The recount will prove the true intent of the voters”


  71. - A guy... - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:36 pm:

    No regrets.


  72. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:37 pm:

    If we had one more week…


  73. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:39 pm:

    We peaked just at the right time

    Experts told us that the campaign peaked too early which shows this result


  74. - Responsa - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:42 pm:

    Voters saw that he is a work horse, not a show horse.


  75. - OldSmoky2 - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 1:42 pm:

    “And I want you to know that what happened today isn’t the end of our fight for the future of community/state/country.”

    “Bite me!” by Rich Miller.

    Least favorite when it’s directed at me, favorite when it’s not.


  80. - 47th Ward - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 2:16 pm:

    There were reports of polling places opening late, sending campaign lawyers to the courts to keep them open later this evening.

    We’re hearing reports of poll watchers intimidating voters in the 33rd Ward.

    One election judge has already been sent home for showing up drunk this morning.

    Allegations of fraud were traded in this hotly contested battle.

    favorite; ” If elected, I shall see to it that every man has a square deal, no less no more” Theodore Roosevelt ( more quote than cliché) oh for Teddy this Tuesday ! least has been addressed many times here..


  82. - Joan P. - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 2:23 pm:

    “Voter turnout in the primaries is traditionally lower than in the general election.”

    “We are still waiting for the final vote counts from Cook County.” (Usually heard in the wee hours after a close election.)


  83. - 47th Ward - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 2:24 pm:

    Neither side is conceding in this race.

    It’s too close to call.

    Finger pointing begins as campaign signs disappear.

  93. - Thomas - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 3:43 pm:

    Our (insert name of 60+ year old “expert”) certainly didn’t see this upset coming.


  94. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 3:48 pm:

    We shouldn’t underestimate women voting, they make up a large part of the electorate.


  95. - Roadiepig - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    “Shake up Springfield!”

    Last two who prominently mentioned doing that didn’t turn out well for the citizens of this state (and Rich- thanks for the link and post from the IT about Dan Walker- was too young then to remember much about him, but I do remember my dad complaining about what a phony he was during the campaign)


  96. - Just The Way It Is One - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 3:58 pm:

    Among MY personal favorites: “The only Poll that matters is the one taken on ELECtion Day,” and (often in defeat, but sometimes for the Victor), “The PEOPLE have spoken,” and, (especially in Chicagoland) the age-old, “Be sure to vote early and OFTEN!”

    …Not to mention how I revel in the Generally Resolute nature of the USUALLY, definitively the Clincher Declaration (particularly when it’s ABC, NBC, CBS declaring it–because those Networks are Big-Time and mean Business), “So this Evening, at –: — PM, — NEWS is declaring (fill in the name) the WINNER in his/her race for (Office) in (Jurisdiction).” THAT Statement often sends a bit of a shiver down my spine–like the “Wow” Moment because it’s so significant and/or meaningful, especially when it’s been a close/highly contested Race for Big Stakes with a heretofore VERY Uncertain Outcome…!

    On the list of least cared-for: “Bad Weather means Low Turnout!’ and “So it’s sure looking like if this Pattern keeps up, (So and So) will be elected the next (fill-in the Office) from (Jurisdiction)…but it’s close, and all of the Precincts haven’t been counted yet.”

    Also, akin to that one is dread I too often experience as to the Remark around Midnight or later of a LONG Election Day/Night by some Major Reporter when you’re just aching already to see who’s WON so you can go to bed or go Home, to the tune of, ‘So at THIS point? It’s just TOO close to call yet, and it looks like it’s gonna be a LONG Night for BOTH Campaigns…!”


  97. - the Patriot - Friday, Mar 14, 14 @ 4:37 pm:
