The Soft Bigotry Of Low Expectations

An AP article concerning the “gloominess” of the People Of The State O’ Illinois over the state of their state, mostly focused on the gubernatorial race and in true journalistic style, set out to get “man on the street” reax from the proles of Illinois.

Gerry Thomas, a 51 year old fruit stand worker in Chicago thought Pat Quinn was “pretty much doing what he can” to deal with the myriad crises and problems of Illinois, and further:

“[Thomas] plans to pull a straight Democratic ticket this fall, as his family has done for generations…’I’m sure it could be worse in a lot of other places…I’m the working poor, but compared to people in Ghana, I’m living the life of Riley’.”

  1. That’s my motto too:

    “Illinois … full of corruption, worst debt in the US
    but still better than the slaves have it in Somalia

    and that’s why I’m voting for Quinn, again”

    Ha …

    only 28 percent of Illinois residents said they have a great deal or a fair amount of trust in their government. That was the lowest percentage of any state, with the next lowest ā€” Rhode Island ā€” at 40 percent.

    Yet they couldn’t find anyone that thought Rauner would be a good change. AP has gone full left, and lost the subtlety about it. But at least their fruit stand guy exemplifies the absurdity.

  2. Yeah, that’s what I thought too—Vote Lockstep Democrat: At Least We Aren’t Ghana! šŸ˜€
