Geraghty seems to think this will be the Year Of The GOP in Illinois, but I’m not so sure. An electorate that would vote for Blago TWICE ain’t exactly the sharpest, also the Democrats have protected the taxpayers—so far, from the nasty business of actually funding this debt.
How long will that last? Who knows? But until the taxpayers feel some pain from the policies and union perks the Democrats have put in place over the last decade, I don’t really see a Republican Renaissance happening in Illinois.
But stranger things have happened there—and I hope they do!
