The Fake War

"...[S]tandoff between Gov. Bruce Rauner and House Speaker Michael Madigan." [source]

"It's a Chicago tale that brings together Barack Obama, Mike Madigan and Ken Dunkin." [source]

What crap journalism. The sad thing is we're seeing this over and over in the media. They're going for the personalities over issues -- and values.

This conflict has nothing to do with Madigan. This is a conflict between a billionaire governor whose agenda is offensive to any Democrat -- any progressive -- on planet earth. And Dunkin's supporting it. Not to acknowledge this primary context is the equivalent of journalistic malpractice.

As Will Guzzardi says:

Anyone who wants this thing to end needs to realize that, irrespective of Madigan, there is *no way* that the Turnaround Agenda will pass the House. Insisting on it as a precondition of a budget deal is the same thing as saying “I do not want a budget deal.” That’s why we blame Rauner.

And Republican BRUCE RAUNER, the Winnetka businessman with all the money he needed and a multi-pronged strategy to highlight weaknesses of Quinn and state government, made the case.

"Quinn ran out of lives," said DAVID YEPSEN, director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University.
