Rauner would have had no use for a guy like Schnorf- he would have been a constant reminder of (Rauner air quotes)
‘Integrity’; ‘Trust’; ‘Empathy’; ‘Intelligence’…..in Rauner’s world,
Those things are weaknesses. Rauner would have to stand on the Sears tower to kiss Schnorf’s ***.
We can use it as a verb and an adjective too, right?
“Make Illinois Schorf again” and “Someone really needs to Schnorf DoIT.”
I was thinking upon the release of Rauner’s Top Six and Some Filler list how wonderous it was that we finally did pass a budget over Bruce’s objection. How heartbreaking it was he didn’t live to see that moment, but also how Schorf would probably be the least surprised of what went down or how it went down.
Rich, I know you have been down on state government lately, and that it seems like the bipartisan problem-solvers like Schnorf are getting fewer and further between. Those who remain are going to have to stretch themselves over the next several years to heave our ship of state back on course, as the population loss numbers attest. His memory inspires us and will hopefully inspire a new generation of leaders on both sides of the aisle.
