Jokes aside, this messaging is incredibly powerful among certain voters. Recall that in 2010 Bill Brady’s support of a pet euthanasia came into the main stream (it’s even on his Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Brady_(politician)#Animal_control). Now maybe killing household pets is not the same as poaching rhinos, but animal cruelty has a unique way of resonating with folks.
I almost wouldn’t even take issue with it if Google and the rest of these companies would just straight up say “we’re gonna mine your profile and search history and sell it for gobs of money to people you would never approve the sale of information to” instead of implying and dancing around the issue.
I think J.B. should target those of us who hate anonymous commenters on Capitol Fax.
“Bruce Rauner had four years to implement a mandatory nickname policy for Illinois’ leading political and government blog. He failed. J.B. will make sure you know who you’re calling an uninformed bot. It’s never OK to be anonymous, it makes it impossible to follow the conversation and ruins the spirit of community that is the backbone of Illinois political blogs. Vote Pritzker.”
Pritzker should target anyone living in the City of Chicago by promising to reopen the Chicago emissions testing locations. It’s one of those things that affects all drivers in the state’s largest city and Rauner closed them out of spite forcing Chicago residents to drive out to the suburbs in order to complete a test that is mandatory in order to get your license plate stickers renewed.
Rauner: Support the Arts, support Bruce Rauner. Gov. Rauner’s costume collection is one way Bruce has supported the arts while in office, so…
Pritzker: Support privacy, Support JB. JB Pritzker is opposed to anyone taping any conversation for any reason, even Siri and Google. If you want privacy and your voice safe from recordings, support JB.
Bruce Rauner had the chance to finally bring good Middle Eastern food to Springfield but he failed. JB knows that good felafel is green and will finally bring quality middle eastern food to Springfield. Vote Pritzker
When you need a little privacy to take care of business, don’t forget that an historic mansion’s back porch can be a cozy setting. Bruce Rauner knows. Bruce Rauner cares. And Bruce Rauner’s backdoor business dealings help him earn enough money to restore This Old Illinois House to its former glory.
Bruce Rauner. He’s no Norm Abrams and can’t hold a candle to Tommy Silva, but he’s a heck of lot better than Bob Vila.
Look at me. Look how skinny I am that I cannot get pants that look like thy will stay on. And I spend $1,000 per pair and pay my taxes on them because I am not like that tax dodger running against me. You should also know that JB hates weight watchers and anyone who is losing weight …. especially Oprah.
“Bruce Rauner gets his wine from his $150,000 wine club, run by Bill Harlan. By how are you going to obtain a few cases of the most Harlan Estates vintage for you cellar? Urge Bruce Rauner to sign legislation allowing retailers to ship directly to Illinois consumers.”
