Nine out of twelve people have a different opinion than you, so that means you understand their job better than they do.

No, it means that the grand jury process is "massively broken".

We should introduce them to some engineers.

I like how it's not just "broken" or "flawed" but "Massively broken".

When 9/12 people think there's enough evidence to go ahead with a case against a Republican, you know it's only because we're one step away from the utter collapse of the American legal system.

According to the guy I just got my coffee from, that's maybe 99% obviously clearly the only objectively possible conclusion anyone could come to.

He'll lose re-election this November

I really don't think he will, actually. This is one of the most interesting races this year as far as polling modeling goes and I think the commonly used turnout assumptions are wrong. We'll see, I suppose.

I'm skeptical but the Chicago Tribune released a poll yesterday with Quinn up 11% (48-37) over Rauner. Previous polls had Rauner ahead by around 4%. Scenario was about the same as the 2012 presidential elections: Rauner is viewed as more capable to handle the state finances but has a deep deficit in the "understands my problems" and "controlled by special interests" style categories. Plus an absolutely dismal 12% support from Chicago voters and barely cracking a majority in the collar counties.

Still, give me another poll or two before I'm convinced.

I believe he slept with the Tribune staff for better polling numbers.

The commercials with Rauner wearing flannel and Carhartt are hilarious.

"He wears moderately-priced coats and ugly shirts! He's just like us!"

I think he'll split the Lumberjack vote. I mean, he's pro flannel, but he's also pro moderately priced jackets. I guess in the end it would come down to how much he enjoys butter scones with tea.

Smiley: drool

The stiffness of a Carhart is unforgivable.
