Rauner campaign following Pritzker around with a toilet

Tuesday, Jun 26, 2018

* Press release…

Where in Illinois are Pritzker’s Toilets?

JB Pritzker disconnected the toilets in his Gold Coast mansion in order to receive a massive tax break after having the home reclassified as “uninhabitable.”

The question remains: where in Illinois are Pritzker’s toilets?

One of them made an appearance last night at the Northfield Township Democrats general election kick off party, where JB Pritzker was making an appearance.

Stay tuned as the toilets continue to pop up across Illinois.

* The accompanying pic…

Pretty sure that’s the first time I’ve posted a photo of a toilet on this website. Doubt it’ll be the last, though.

    Ok, all politics aside, this is pretty funny. Way better than that Quinnochio dude they had following Quinn.


  2. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 9:53 am:

    Well this campaign is going right in the toilet.


  3. - Montrose - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 9:55 am:

    Now if Rauner’s team can find some way to incorporate the National Lampoon Christmas Vacation scene with Randy Quaid emptying out his RV’s toilet in the sewer, he may just win my vote.


  4. - Exclamation Point Deleted - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 9:59 am:

    How about a courtesy flush?


  5. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:00 am:

    If you’re the Pritzker Crew…

    … you should be focused on building a grassroots field operation that will focus on GOTV and targeting those most hurt by this failed governor, like those who have been hurt or lost social services, and downstate towns where Rauner is/was passively closing state universities.

    Rauner doing this, it’s fun, it’s an unforced error, it’s negligence by the Pritzker Crew and never handling their business on Oppo, if they ever DID oppo research on themselves (See: overseas investments, Blago tapes).

    It’s a fun annoyance, but the thing about Skyhook, in reverse, it begins, ends, and is always about a failed incumbent governor, who is unliked, even by some in his own party abd alleged base.

    Do the work. Find your oppo you’ve ignored. Shore up the loose ends. Eat that these toilets are now part of the discussion.

    Give no quarter. Give no more aid.

    That’s pretty much all Brucie has been able to deliver to the state during his term.


  7. - Henry Francis - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:01 am:

    So on one hand you have the Guv preaching if he is not re-elected, it is the end times for Illinois.

    And on the other hand he is going with (literally) bathroom humor.


  8. - Grand Avenue - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:02 am:

    They need a character in a costume like Jaws the Shark or Quinnochio. Something like Flushy or Timmy the Toilet


  9. - JS Mill - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:03 am:

    Does this mean that the Pritzker crew should follow Rauner around with a coffin?

    Maybe a bit too dark? /s

    I miss Squeezy.


  11. - Practical Politics - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:05 am:

    The toilet ought to be accompanied by someone dressed up like the Tidy Bowl Man in the Yachting outfit.


  12. - Arsenal - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:05 am:

    Can’t wait to see Rauner’s next all-new, all-different message in three weeks.

    ==They need a character in a costume like Jaws the Shark or Quinnochio.==

    I dunno, I think this is better. They need to put some branding on the toilet, though.

    OTOH, my experience with high school pranks taught me that moving a toilet around is more of a PITA than just putting a guy in a costume outside the event.

  17. - I don't have a job - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:09 am:

    Yeah maybe the Pritzker crew can start setting a flag draped coffin in honor of those who have died at Quincy VH outside the Rauner events. Props really can be fun, right Rauner frat house??

    A sitting governor basing his reelection campaign on toilets tells one everything they need to know about the success of his tenure in office.

    Toilets are …. heavy. How’d you like to have that job? Gotta be so demoralizing, and not something you’d want to explain to anyone or put on a resume.

    “So what is it that you did for the Rauner campaign?”
    “I, um, I followed around the other guy with a toilet.”
    “Thank you for coming in today sir, I believe we’ve heard all we need to make a decision.”


  23. - Red Rider - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:18 am:

    Not going to work,the only thing getting flushed is the Governor.


  24. - Lucky Pierre - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:18 am:

    Sums up limousine liberal hypocrisy in a way everyone can easily understand. Especially rich from a candidate who is so out of touch he does not believe the nation leading outmigration from Illinois has anything to do with taxes, it is just Governor Rauner’s fault.

    Now they just need a floatable Cayman island with a palm tree and billions in cash stuffed under it.


  25. - Gruntled University Employee - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:24 am:

    A casket may be a bit too much but a Hearse parked within eye shot of every Rauner event, maybe?


  26. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:25 am:

    ===Sums up limousine liberal…===

    You mean Bruce Rauner?

    Signs the most liberal state abortion law in America, a law you said was too liberal even for California?

    Or the “sanctuary state” law, a law Rauner won’t clarify that it’s not a sanctuary state law… because it will enflame Trumpkins even more?

    ===…leading outmigration from Illinois has anything to do with taxes, it is just Governor Rauner’s fault.==

    Well…

    Bruce Rauner signed a budget validating and certifying the 32% tax increase… with no reforms… and no turnaround agenda items.

    Boy, by every measure YOU have, Bruce Rauner is a failed governor too.


  27. - Lucky Pierre - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:34 am:

    Not sure those socially liberal issues Rauner signed are as fatal to his re-election in Illinois as you think OW. I have not seen any polling saying so unless you want to enlighten us.
    I am sure if he did not sign them you would be castigating him for being out of touch with blue Illinois.

    The property tax issue is a far different story. Of course you don’t see any issue with the removal of the toilets that saved the “progressive billionaire” $230,000, just how his crew his handling it.

    How can the crew defend the indefensible toilet or Blagoevich calls anyway? They are indefensible


  28. - The Ford Lawyer - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:36 am:

    Uh, Tom Horn, that’s not lemonade…


  29. - Sugar Corn - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:37 am:

    A lot of nerve for a man with the plumbing problems (QUINCY VETS) of Bruce Rauner to touch anything involving plumbing.

    ===A lot of nerve for a man with the plumbing problems (QUINCY VETS) of Bruce Rauner to touch anything involving plumbing.==

    When the Pritzker Crew is done giving aid and comfort to the Rauner Crew… they MAY get to that in ads or start hammering on the tee-vee those points.

    If they aren’t going to decidedly engage in being the ones to put Rauner on the defensive daily, then they should be doing what I suggest above. While being passive to the messaging, at least it will be active to the winning.


  32. - Steve Rogers - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:44 am:

  33. - Arsenal - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:48 am:

    ==Sums up limousine liberal hypocrisy in a way everyone can easily understand.==

    If you look at a toilet and think “liberal hypocrisy!” then you look at *anything* and think “liberal hypocrisy”.

    These things are fun, and they get under the candidates’ skins and they get you a couple good press pops. But don’t fool yourself into thinking they’re doing anything more than preaching to the choir.


  34. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:49 am:

    The toilet is a perfect symbol of politics today. Specifically in Illinois: a millstone around Pritzy’s honor, and the fitting mascot of Rauner the Ruiner


  35. - Lucky Pierre - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:50 am:

    Comparing the condition of the 131 year old Quincy VA’s water system to the plumbing in JB’ s spare mansion is a stretch a mile long.

    JB actually caused his issue, there are far more hands on the VA than just the Governor.


  36. - Arsenal - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:57 am:

    ==Comparing the condition of the 131 year old Quincy VA’s water system to the plumbing in JB’ s spare mansion is a stretch a mile long.==

    Agreed. The Quincy VA water system had real consequences for real people. JB’s toilets are just the desperate obsession of a losing campaign.


  37. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:58 am:

    ===There are “Republicans” in Kendall County that are counting on you===

    Rauner is not a Republican. Rauner is a Raunerite.

    Raunerism is…

    An uber-left, costal, limousine liberal social agenda… that includes in Raunerism the destruction of social services, higher education, running up billions in debt… to end collective bargaining and prevailing wage.

    That’s not even in the neighborhood, of the parking lot, of the ball park of the Reagan Rule of 80%.

    ===Comparing the condition of the 131 year old Quincy VA’s water system to the plumbing in JB’ s spare mansion is a stretch a mile long.===

    Rauner’s Crew was more inclined to figuring a way to blame s wounded veteran who left the agency than figuring out, for days, to tell those lining there, working there, the families, there were serious health problems.

    That’s on Bruce Rauner.


  38. - Arsenal - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 10:58 am:

    ==JB actually caused his issue, there are far more hands on the VA than just the Governor.==

    “I am *not* in charge!”


  39. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:01 am:

    Meaningless, silly and all too predictable. I just wonder what took them so long.

    What’s interesting here is the Rauner people are trying to turn an issue that I view as about a 3 into a 6 or 7. I doubt it will have much impact compared to the very real damage Rauner has done to the state.


  40. - Memo From Turner - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:03 am:

    ==Rauner is not a Republican. Rauner is a Raunerite.==
    JB is not a Republican. JB is a progressive Democrat, but he has your support.


  41. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:06 am:

    ===Not sure those socially liberal issues Rauner signed are as fatal to his re-election in Illinois as you think===

    Then why the worry about McCann?

    Rauner has no constituency… case in point…

    ===I have not seen any polling saying so unless you want to enlighten us.===

    How about Jeanne Ives getting 48%… in an election, not just a “poll”

    Rauner has serious troubles. Rauner is underwater “everywhere” and only 3 points above water downstate.

    You’re in denial.

    ===I am sure if he did not sign them you would be castigating him for being out of touch with blue Illinois.===

    So Rauner IS an uber-left, costal, limousine liberal… because he has to be?

    Tell that to Blase Cardinal Cupich, who was lied to by Bruce Rauner.

    ===Of course you don’t see any issue with the removal of the toilets that saved the “progressive billionaire” $230,000, just how his crew his handling it.===

    (Sigh)

    Reading is fundamental.

    ===Rauner doing this, it’s fun, it’s an unforced error, it’s negligence by the Pritzker Crew and never handling their business on Oppo, if they ever DID oppo research on themselves (See: overseas investments, Blago tapes).===

    And…

    ===…Find your oppo you’ve ignored. … Eat that these toilets are now part of the discussion.===

    Capiche?

    ===How can the crew defend the indefensible toilet or Blagoevich calls anyway? They are indefensible===

    How then can Rauner be losing to Pritzker so “badly”?

    Rauner is unlikable and has no constituency.

    That’s not being helped by toilets, but it’s fun, it’s an unforced error by Pritzker’s Crew lacking in their own understanding of their own oppo


  42. - BlueDogDem - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:07 am:

    LP. Just a heads up. I am a fiscal conservative independent. I voted for Rauner 4 years ago. I won’t this time. I won’t be voting unless it’s for McCann. Haven’t made that final. Nothing worse than a politician who preaches one thing and does another. Might as well give in and let Pritzker own the state’s plight. It won’t be pretty. But neither has the path Rauner has led us down.


  43. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:08 am:

    Pritzker’s crew could get a black vest, load 30 tourist button on it and drape it over the toilet.


  44. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:08 am:

    ===JB is a progressive Democrat, but he has your support.===

    That would be news to both the Pritzker Crew and myself.

    The goal, as a Republican, is to end Raunerism and save Illinois from more Bruce and Diana Rauner destruction.

    I’m glad you agree Rauner isn’t a Republican.

    Good on you, lol


  45. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:10 am:

    ==Not sure those socially liberal issues Rauner signed are as fatal to his re-election in Illinois as you think OW.==

    Wrong as usual LP.
    It is why he almost lost to a near-unknown without money in the primary, why he has 15% or more Republicans supporting McCann, and why he’s losing in November.

    Gosh, you are a dense one, LP.


  46. - Not Me - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:11 am:

    Oh please please please somebody follow the toilet guy around and plant flowers in the bowl every time he plants the pot(ty).


  47. - Silicon Prairie - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:12 am:

    Perhaps JB should just donate the 230k to charity or give the money back. Seems odd he would spend 100 million of his own money on a campaign ,but then try and save 230 on property taxes


  48. - 618 - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:13 am:

    Someone could follow Rauner around with the corpses of the elderly he killed in his nursing homes but that would probably get the health department involved


  49. - DeseDemDose - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:17 am:

    Pritzker campaign should definitely follow Rauner around with a stack of coffins because the sober truth ain’t funny.


  50. - Dr. M - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:20 am:

    Hey Pritzker folks - I’d love to see someone dressed up as the letter “G” following Rauner around. Can you please spend some of your funds to make this happen?


  51. - Lucky Pierre - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:23 am:

    Vanilla Man are you implying the primary electorate is exactly the same as the general election?

    in 2014 the General election had almost 1.7 million more votes cast than in the primary.

    Do you think those 1.7 million might be the middle of the road voters who will decide the election?

    I guess you think the majority Jeaanie Ives voters would rather have JB Governor so they can disagree with every issue and not just a handful and will vote accordingly or will waste their vote on Sam Mc Cann


  52. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:32 am:

    ===…will waste their vote on Sam Mc Cann===

    Why worry about McCann?

    You worry because Rauner lacks a constituency.

    So, you worry.


  53. - Amalia - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:33 am:

    Please Dems, stop trying to defend JB on this or claim it’s not so bad. it is. flush it from your thoughts…even as they continue to stunt…. and move on to other work to stop Rauner. find something in oppo on Rauner and go with it. better yet, give the people of Illinois a positive reason to vote for JB.

    We already have one, so we’re used to it.


  56. - Lucky Pierre - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:44 am:

    Love it how 15% of voters are now magically supporting Mc Cann.

    Cite any poll that says 15% of Republicans even know who Sam Mc Cann is.

    Why would the Jeannie Ives supporters vote for the most liberal Republican legislator who running in the “conservative” party?

    Who is Mc Cann’s constituency?


  57. - VanillaMan - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:46 am:

    Our current problem isn’t that JB hates toilets, our current problem is that Rauner uses us as toilets.


  58. - Jocko - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 11:51 am:

    To add to revvedup’s point I suspect that, by the end of the campaign, the toilet will have been to more areas of the state than Bruce.


  59. - Rabid - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 12:00 pm:

    Saying JB raised your taxes only works in cook county, going statewide is looking for the non homeowner that doesn’t know the difference between local and state taxes

  61. - Lucky Pierre - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 12:01 pm:

    Why will JB make Illinois a better place for companies to expand and grow their workforces generating more taxpayers and not just tax those already here more?

    He does not acknowledge even the most basic things independent voters believe- our political system is corrupt, our business environment is terrible and people are leaving because their taxes are too high.


  62. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 12:06 pm:

    ===…our political system is corrupt, our business environment is terrible and people are leaving because their taxes are too high.===

    “Lucky Pierre”

    Ask yourself…

    All those things poll “so well”… and Rauner polls so terribly.

    The message seems to resonate, why doesn’t Rauner who wants that as his message?

    Rauner is unlikable, a failed governor who actually signed a budget with a 32% tax increase with zero reforms, and no turnaround agenda items.

    If you believe so strongly in these items, you should realize Rauner isn’t your best messenger, as he is unliked.


  63. - Nearly Normal - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 12:30 pm:

    How about following Rauner around with a hospital bed? Can have double meaning–Quincy Veteran’s home and the nursing home scandal from his past.


  64. - Arsenal - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 12:58 pm:

    ==Please Dems, stop trying to defend JB on this or claim it’s not so bad.==

    I’m not sure who’s doing that. JB’s campaign seems content to ignore the issue. That being said, it’s a really silly and superficial issue. Those are sometimes (often?) effective. But you can stop the hand wringing about it.

  67. - JS Mill - Tuesday, Jun 26, 18 @ 1:18 pm:

    =Why will JB make Illinois a better place for companies to expand and grow their workforces generating more taxpayers and not just tax those already here more?=

    Interesting (not really) not a question “question. Here is what we know:

    The “Kansas” model sponsored by Rauner and directed by Donna Arduin (remember that superstar?) does not work. We know that to a certainty.

    We know that taxation and economic growth are not mutually exclusive and that low taxes are not a growth “creator”. (see California, and midwest growth leader Minnesota).

    We know everyone hates taxes. It is the American way. When poorly spent (like on additional interest because Rauner does not like to pay his bills) we hate them even more. And “Taxes are too high” is Rauner’s claim to fame even though he accepted an increase.

    We know Rauner is a pathological liar. On everything, big and small.

    We know that by almost every measure Illinois is in far worse shape today versus 2014.

    Basically, Pritzker only has to do one of those things better and keep everything else the same he will be a better governor than Rauner.

    Rauner has toilettes and talking to Blago to hang over Pritzker. Not one single thing was illegal. He played the tax system (I hate that the wealthy can get away with that crap but it was legal).

    What does JB have to hang on Rauner? For one, if you are in a nursing home or care facility and Rauner has any say in the matter your life is legitimately in danger. Rauner is a proven liar.

    Hmm..which one is worse?/s

    =He does not acknowledge even the most basic things independent voters believe- our political system is corrupt, our business environment is terrible and people are leaving because their taxes are too high.=

    What do you know about independent voters? You are definitely not one.

    Maybe InfoWars is a bteer site for you.

    (There’s probably a reason the Pritzker folks decided they could win this one without me. I tend to overreact.)

    “Too bad a large Legionella pneumophila bacteria model cant suddenly appear at Rauner events.” “Hello? Costume shop? What do you have in the way of bacteria?”

    Got to hand it to Rauner’s crew. Who says that a bunch of white kids as interns can’t come up with something stellar?

    Who can guess how many jelly beans?

    This is an example of where our political discourse has lead…straight down the tubes.

    When you consume approximately 4000 calories a day, a well-placed commode can be a lifesaver.

    JB can quickly turn this campaign around by airing ads associating those toliets with Rauner’s Nursing Home Crisis in Quincy.

    ==Black /Brown voters will be required to guess how many golf balls/jelly beans the toilet can flush?==

    Only the “least offensive” ones.


  89. - Seymourkid - Wednesday, Jun 27, 18 @ 12:06 am:

    JB’s campaign should leave Rauner’s missing “G’s” around the state.


  90. - Rabid - Wednesday, Jun 27, 18 @ 1:33 am:

    Team Rauner has left you a gift to put signs on, things in, with a Rauner lookalike


  91. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Wednesday, Jun 27, 18 @ 6:17 am:

    That’s a heavy prop. What does the toilet carrier make an hour?


  92. - Chicago Barb - Wednesday, Jun 27, 18 @ 3:27 pm:

    The mansion they show in that commercial is about 4 times the size of the actual house. I know this because I live around the corner.
