An “unblemished” record of “decency, civility, and candor”

Friday, Jul 14, 2017

* From the “think tank”…

It should go without saying that Wordslinger is a frequent critic of the House Democrats’ messaging. He ain’t Steve Brown.


* The poor darlings were apparently stung by this Wordslinger comment on a story yesterday aimed at them

If I could be radically candid, don’t tell me your problems, tell me your solutions that you can accomplish through the democratic processes as set forth by the Constitution and statute.

You’re in an action position now, not a coffee klatch. The taxpayers are compensating you very well. Get to work.

So, apparently Speaker Madigan is to blame because they couldn’t get their own budget plan passed. Yep. All on him and those darned rules.

    How petty, to go after a random comment. Isn’t there something better they can do?

  2. - Amalia - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:06 am:

    oh no you didn’t!!!!! messing with someone who comments here, and someone as respected as Wordslinger, is not just mean, petty, and ridiculous, it will now mean more scrutiny than ever.

  3. - Deadbeat Conservative - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:08 am:

    Congratulations Word!
    Getting called out by the IPI should be considered an honor.
    The national equivalent of getting called out by Dick Cheney on DOD issues.

  4. - Baloneymous - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:08 am:

    IPI taking the Trump civilized approach at tweeting and running the government I see. Off to a great start

  5. - Blue Bayou - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:08 am:

    What part of the “democratic process”, pray tell, does IPI want changed? The House rules, and the way Madigan uses them, are not popular with liberals. But would a change in rules allow Rauner’s ideas to flourish? Which ones? Who would be for them?

    The fault lies not in the stars, IPI.

    You act like you have no place in government.

  6. - Interim Retiree - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:09 am:

    So THAT’S why there was no word on the the flooding. It was obviously wordslinger’s fault.

  7. - Sonny - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:10 am:

    Can any one of us actually say we have an unblemished record of decency, civility and candor? If you can, kudos to you and enjoy your time in earth before your ascension to sainthood.

  8. - Name Withheld - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:12 am:

    Speaker Madigan and the wordslingers he controls.

  9. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:13 am:

    ===Can any one of us actually say we have an unblemished record===

    Only one person that I know of: John Tillman.

  10. - @MisterJayEm - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:14 am:

    As in other cults, when confronted with unhappy facts, they ignore the content and denounce the messenger as an agent of darkness.

    – MrJM

  11. - Annonin' - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:14 am:

    Wordslinger could not be that Brown guy…he does not make as many typos as Brown.

    BTW all the decency C* needs to be laid alongside the fake movie plannin’ and the Rock Island absentee ballot fraud incident.
    There are guys and gals sittin’ in 26th & California with more decency.
    But they will be big biz for 217 area criminal defense laweyers

  12. - illini - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:15 am:

    It seems that when you have nothing you can always attempt to divert the conversation, try to change the subject or find an acceptable scapegoat.

    We have seen this before and it is getting old.

  13. - news - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:20 am:

    Tweetwars are fun and all but could we get some info on the Sun-Times deal? Haven’t seen coverage on this site yet but I might have missed it. Thanks.

  14. - Cheesy - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:21 am:

    Any way to get an archived copy of the Rules as they were under the last Republican Speaker? Would be interesting to view the similarities.

  15. - Poster Boy - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:21 am:

    Wordslinger demonstrates on a very regular basis that he has limited knowledge of people and process. Steve Brown knows people and process better than almost anyone. The only similarity between the tow is that they are both spend their days spouting Madigan talking points.

  16. - Smitty Irving - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:21 am:

    Don’t they mean “Pate Philip’s rules” ?? /s

  17. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:22 am:

    It’s well known around these parts that - Wordslinger - repeatedly goes after the Democratic lack of messaging and especially the HDems 1970s stylings that never keep up with Raunerism messaging.

    - Wordslinger - is the gold standard here, calling out any and every one failing the state and the politics within the governing, be it for praise or criticism.

    The IPI might use their own time better figuring out how to tamp down the rhetoric on their Facebook page instead of falsely and purposely “guessing” who - Wordslinger - is to push a narrative.

  18. - Ahoy! - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:22 am:

    That was kind of pathetic of IPI to tweet something like like, compounded since it’s wrong. I assumed they thought more highly of themselves not to act like that, even if they were the only ones.

  19. - Ducky LaMoore - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:23 am:

    It’s hard to be taken seriously as a “news” and “policy” organization if you tweet out garbage about random, unknown people on a blog.

  20. - @MisterJayEm - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:27 am:

    “Wordslinger demonstrates on a very regular basis that he has limited knowledge of people and process”

    And THAT, my friends, is how you make intelligent people disregard the remainder of a comment.

    – MrJM

  21. - PublicServant - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:27 am:

    ===How petty, to go after a random comment. Isn’t there something better they can do?===

    Short answer: No.

  22. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:29 am:

    ===Haven’t seen coverage on this site yet===

    A couple of days ago.

  23. - efudd - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:29 am:

    My takeaway is two.
    Rich’s site is followed by those across the spectrum-no surprise.
    Commenters on this site are also closely watched.
    Those let freedom ring types sure get touchy easy.

  24. - cover - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:30 am:

    = Any way to get an archived copy of the Rules as they were under the last Republican Speaker? Would be interesting to view the similarities. =

    Yes, but not in electronic form, the website debuted with the 90th General Assembly. Speaker Lee Daniels’ House rules for the 89th General Assembly should be available in book form at the State Library.

  25. - cdog - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:31 am:

    I think Word can defend himself. No worries there.

    Back on the message though, steering away from all this messenger drama…

    “change his House rules,” is a very obvious problem in the Illinois House. This is part of Drury’s appeal; he went against this undemocratic nonsense.

    Anybody want to defend Madigan on his domination of the State via his House rules?

  26. - Name Withheld - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:31 am:

    If Wordslinger is Steve Brown - then who is Lucky Pierre?

  27. - Robert the Bruce - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:33 am:

    IPI could tell wordslinger themselves, in the comment section here. Just avoid unnecessary exclamation points.

    So IPI folks replaced Rauner’s advisers. Which children are running IPI now?

  28. - @MisterJayEm - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:34 am:

    “If Wordslinger is Steve Brown - then who is Lucky Pierre?”

    A false-flag operation conducted by Steve Brown.

    – MrJM

  29. - Lt Guv - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:34 am:

    Lucky Pierre is Steve Brown too. . . it’s his joke on the world.

  30. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:35 am:

    ===via his House rules===

    They’re mostly Lee Daniels’ rules. Doesn’t excuse them at all, but he adopted the rules of his GOP predecessor after he retook the House.

  31. - Mongo - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:35 am:

    Yes, an honor, but as with Cheney, don’t go huntin’ with IPI people.

  32. - wordslinger - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:36 am:

    PB, I know enough about people and process that Rauner could have put a brick on the tax increase bill for 60 days and then spent his millions pounding GOP legislators to keep them in line before an override vote.

    Instead, he asked them to stay in town to act on his veto immediately.

    From your knowledge of people and process, what was his true objective then?

  33. - blue dog dem - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:37 am:

    Word. Atta boy. Rarely do we agree, but concepts like IPI are what makes our two party system worthless

  34. - Rogue Roni - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:37 am:

    All that money and all the 1% gets is some online snark? I’m starting to doubt rauners business expertise

  36. - Smitty Irving - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:42 am:

    c dog -
    Funny, I don’t remember those criticizing Madigan’s rules criticizing Pate Philip, who created that version of the rules.

  37. - the Patriot - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:42 am:

    I was tired of Obama saying he inherited a mess 6 years in. You were elected because we believed your plan to fix the mess was better.

    We elected Rauner because he sold his plan to fix it better than Quinn. I suspect had he disclosed part of his plan was to get Mike Madigan to not be Mike Madigan Quinn would still be Governor.

    This is very important. The only relevant question for the current candidates is, “what is your plan to deal with Madigan.” work with him, around him, without him…maybe, but change him. Right next to my plan to get the Mississippi to flow South to North.

  38. - Smitty Irving - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:43 am:

    cover -
    Wouldn’t Pate Philip’s 2000 rules be available online?

  39. - cdog - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:43 am:

    ” Doesn’t excuse them at all, but he adopted the rules of his GOP predecessor”

    What was that line from last week…? “Persuasion” or “intellectual persuasion,” is what Madigan practices to maintain complete control.

    Regardless, it’s not right. Of course it’s among the many not right things on both sides, and has most likely been a root cause of great damage to Illinois over the decades.

    GOP should keep banging that drum, day in/day out.

  40. - Alternative Logic - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:44 am:

    ==Lucky Pierre is Steve Brown too…==

    I am Spartacus!

  41. - G'Kar - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:45 am:

    I know this has been mentioned before, but IPI and the governor’s office it controls, continues to operate on the mistaken belief that if somehow Madigan was gone, they would easily get to 60-30 and pass all the legislation they want. As long as they stay in the dream world, they will fail.

  42. - Promachus - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:50 am:

    For the feckless privileged intellectuals of IPI, the thought of actually being held accountable for real production is terrifying.
    It’s so easy to criticize. Wordslinger put one right between the running lights; Hit their hidden fear of impotence. They don’t know how to do the doable because they don’t live in the real world. They live in their own fantasies.
    Fire all state employees? Not the real world. Fantasy
    A budget of all cuts? Not the real world. Fantasy
    Unblemished record of decency and civility?
    Not the real world. fantasy.

    IPI you are about to get radical reality
    You gonna learn the hard way about
    Doing the doable

  43. - 47th Ward - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:53 am:

    Steve Brown isn’t half the writer Wordslinger is. If the House Democrats had someone with Word’s talent, they wouldn’t be getting so killed by Rauner in the messaging battle.

  44. - Archiesmom - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:57 am:

    Mr JM 11:35: Drop the mic and we can all go home. I almost did a spit take all over my laptop with that one.

  45. - Streator Curmudgeon - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 11:58 am:

    Ah, a new meme: Because…Wordslinger.

  46. - My New Handle - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 12:00 pm:

    “GOP should keep banging that drum, day in/day out.”
    Maybe I missed it, but what GOP? The 10-16 that voted for the budget? Raunerite/IPI folks have taken away their drums. The things left for them to beat are their primary opponents.

  47. - Mouthy - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 12:02 pm:

    In the true spirit of original movie Spartacus all bloggers should change their handle for a day to wordslinger. IPI’s Twitter account(s) may short and begin to smoke. That would be fun…

  48. - Archiesmom - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 12:04 pm:

    And congratulations, wordslinger. I’m wondering if we need to start thinking up a new award for those like you who get called out by IPI and the trolls they control. It’s an honor to be insightful enough to have it get under their thin skin.

  53. - ArchPundit - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 12:31 pm:

    —IPI’s Twitter account(s) may short and begin to smoke.

    They are busy retweeting people who want to leave Illinois because they hate it so much. Raising the question of why does IPI stay then?

  54. - Captain Ed Smith - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 12:32 pm:

    Actually I believe the rules originated with Pate in 2002 and Lee Daniels adopted them in the house in 2004.

  55. - Commonsense in Illinois - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 12:41 pm:

    Actually, the rules started in 1983 under former Speaker George Ryan. Prior to that, especially in the House, things were more haphazard and messy. It wasn’t unusual for the DOT Appropriations bill to have more than 100 amendments filed, and each amendment was heard and voted on during Second Reading. Sometimes it took more than a day to move a single agency appropriation bill. While Speaker Ryan’s rules changes did tighten the grip of leadership over the legislative agenda, it also brought more order and structure to the House. As Senate President Pate Philip followed suit in the 1990s as did Speaker Daniels.

    Speaker Madigan hasn’t made that many significant changes, but where there is a dramatic difference is that individual members really don’t know the Rules as well as they should. There are ways to use the Rules to one’s advantage, but one needs to really study and practice them.

  63. - Trapped in the 'burbs - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 2:56 pm:

    Attacking commentators doesn’t change the fundamental problem that Rauner has. He has never proposed a real budget nor has he ever proposed any way to achieve his list of goals. Perhaps if Dunkin and Drury (I’m a former federal prosecutor) had voted to override Rauner’s first veto, Rauner would have realized that he needed to work in a bipartisan fashion since he lacks the votes to go at it alone. Certainly, being the minority party should be a clue that attacking the majority endlessly might not lead to success in government. Off to a great start; missing the flooding and attacking commentators on a blog. Inspiring.

  64. - Jeff Trigg - Friday, Jul 14, 17 @ 3:19 pm:

    The two wrongs make a right justifications for Madigan’s rules are a glorious example of exactly why the Democrats massively failed when they had complete control for 12 years. The Democrats have become such a cult they won’t even hold their own leadership accountable.
