I’ve already posted about the GOP side of last night’s election, but now I want to focus on the spin the Democrat Chair Doug House spewed last night via QCOnline.com.
“[Rock Island] County residents have shown strong support for the Democratic Party.”
Yes, they have “shown strong support” by voting with their feet; the ’10 RICO census showed a loss of 1.2% of population over the ’00 census.
“[RICO Democrats are] a more diverse party…We’re reflective of the county that we represent and that we live in.”
Obviously they aren’t “reflective” of those fleeing like rats from a sinking ship, and at least one black person on the county board doesn’t even live in the QCs—she’s going to school in Indiana. What about Hispanics, the only demographic growing in RICO? How many are “real” Hispanics, as opposed to faux Hispanics like Cheri Bustos? Where are the gay people? Where are the Asians? RICO Dems holding elective office are overwhelming old, white, male and unionists—is that REALLY diversity?
“[House] worries money may become a factor, with unions and the minimum wage under fire by wealthy Republicans [like Rauner].”
Gimme a freakin’ break here—Big Labor spends way more on political campaigns than any other entity, almost all of it going to Democrats, so playing the victim won’t work here—and House knows it. He’s just bamboozling the clueless rubes at the D/A.
The rest of us—not so much.
And the final spin:
“[Republicans] may have the money…but we have the numbers.”
They also have in place something better than money—Democrat controlled County Clerk offices which oversee elections. Illinois doesn’t have a voter suppression problem; it has a voter fraud problem, and as long as Democrats control this office, they will be free to produce fraudulent absentee ballots and other good stuff, to insure they win elections whether they win or not.
So please, don’t cry for Doug House; the RICO Dem Party has $$$$ AND the power to win elections, whether deserved or not.
