I maintain a certain skepticism that Dick Durbin is in all that much trouble right now.

I am… hesitant to put too much weight on this Illinois Senate poll showing Dick Durbin ahead by only seven points. Don’t get me wrong: I despise Dick Durbin for being a re-segregationist, corrupt, constitutionally ignorant hypocrite who has no feel for his constituents and no interest in their welfare.  And I don’t think that Durbin can count on the Gov. Pat Quinn race giving him a boost in the election this go-round, largely because Pat Quinn is having difficulty breaking 40 in the polls himself.  It’s just that it’s still really, really easy to believe that this poll is just an outlier.  That’s usually the safe way to bet.

Mind you: I’d be ecstatic to find out that I was wrong, so… Jim Oberweis for Senate.  Because Dick Durbin is an awful Senator and not that great a human being*.  It’s long since time he found something else to do with his time.

*The DC school choice thing really sticks in my craw.  There’s following a policy, and then there’s just meanness. Durbin made his choice.

    Quit holding back Moe. Tell us what you really think of Dick Durbin.

    Ah, Jim Oberweis. Money is not what he needs more of (he’s worth plenty from the family dairy business). A political talent infusion and a body cleanser to remove the stench of “loser” would though. Seriously, the guy has been trying to buy his way into elective politics for almost a decade now and managed to lose Denny Hastert’s extremely safe district to a nobody Dem in `06. We got it back later.

    Durbin is a well oiled cog in the Chicago machine and deserves to have his butt handed to him, but Jim is the sacrificial lamb. Thankfully, his self funding will save the party from having to throw their money away.

    As much as I despise Durbin, he’s running against Illinois’ answer to Pat Paulsen…

    p.s. I am sipping a milkshake because it’s a hot night, and because by buying it from an Oberweis franchise, I’m doing my bit to help Dick go down in flames.

      Buyting an Oberweis milkshake beats donating to Oberweis’s campaign.

      Its really is hard to get excited for a candidate who isn’t really trying to win.

      • acat says:

        Given what Oberweis looks like when trying to win, I think he’s got a better strategy this time …

        I *suspect* he’s more running in the hope that Durbin will implode… it’s happened before, often enough.

    Dick Durbin is smart enough to pay his dead female voters the same as the dead male ones. The unrest in Ferguson ensures that he will get at least 110% of the black vote. Shoe in!

  • garfieldjl says:

    Moe, you are right to be skeptical about Durbin losing, this is Illinois we’re talking about. There is bound to be massive voter fraud in favor of Durbin.

      Watch the election returns carefully .. some downstate or suburban district will report, then Chicago will start to report, then .. the rest of the State will finish before Chicago puts up final numbers.
