    Rich, my point is “in this election” it would be boring. Didn’t mean to insult you.


  16. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 2:53 pm:

    ===“in this election” it would be boring===

    The three others would be bashing each other quite a lot and probably raising lots more cash. So, no, it wouldn’t be boring, either.

    “The Cutback Amendment” has there been a better example of the law of intended consequences? The savings never materialized and the only members cut seemed to be the intelligent ones. Pat Quinn’s stunt paved the way for Madiganistan.

  54. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 5:16 pm:

    Bruce Rauner is to Barzini what Gov. Pat Quinn is to Fredo


  55. - Juvenal - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 5:47 pm:

    Bruce Rauner is to Charles Ponzi what Pat Quinn is to Paul Simon.

    Rauner invites comparisons to some of the great deceivers and unsustainable business practitioners.

    His political campaign is no exception, attracting huge investments with promises of big returns, although very few “industry” experts believe he will actually achieve any of those lofty policy goals, even if elected.

    Still, even his harshest critics admit he falls short of the criminality of Ponzi, the ruthlessness of
    Mr Potter or the audacity of Rod Blagojevich.

    By the same token, Quinn invites comparison to Simon in his idealism, his ethics, and on the downside his sometimes Quixotic quests.

    Yet even Quinn’s best defenders know that Quinn is much more “pragmatic” in his political manueverings than Simon ever was, and his biggest detractors privately know that pension reform tops a list of axxomplishments that demonstrate he is more than just a gadfly.


  56. - aunt_petunia - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 6:01 pm:

    Bruce Rauner is to an $18 watch what Gov. Pat Quinn is to a cartoon python.


  57. - Excessively Rabid - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 9:10 pm:

    Bruce Rauner is to Barry Goldwater what Pat Quinn is to JFK. Ick.


  58. - Mighty M. Mouse - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 9:50 pm:

    ===Bruce Rauner is to Charles Ponzi what Pat Quinn is to Paul Simon.

    Rauner invites comparisons to some of the great deceivers and unsustainable business practitioners.===

    Juvenal, great post, but I’m not so sure about:

    ===….Still, even his harshest critics admit he falls short of the criminality of Ponzi, the ruthlessness of Mr Potter or the audacity of Rod Blagojevich.===

    My answer to Rich’s question: Bruce Rauner is to psychopaths what Gov. Pat Quinn is to populists.


  59. - RNUG - Tuesday, Jan 28, 14 @ 10:41 pm:

    Bruce Rauner is to the Wolf of Wall Street as Pat Quinn is to Mr Bean
