Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn a class act? Don't bet on it.

We have so much to be proud of here in the People’s Republic of Illinois.  While the rest of the country (even some blue states) is busy finding ways to reduce expenses and slash spending to stave off fiscal disaster during the Obama recession, Illinois under the leadership of long-time Democrat bag man Pat Quinn has raised taxes, increased spending and is hiring more (union) state workers.


How many states can say that their governor was elected with less than 50% of the vote?  How many states can say that their governor carried only 3 out of 102 counties and still was elected?


Yes indeed, we here in Illinois can sure be proud that our governor, along with the Democrat dominated Assembly and Senate continue to fight any attempts at meaningful reform.


Prior to the recent NFC Championship game between the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, Governor Quinn and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker made a friendly wager.  The bet in question required the loser to appear at a volunteer food pantry in the winner’s state.  According to WLS Radio Pat Quinn traveled to a Milwaukee area food pantry yesterday to fulfill his obligation.  Although Pat Quinn did appear at the pantry, it turns out that it wasn’t the Democrat governor after all. 


Rather than upset his political benefactors, the public sector union puppet who serves as governor in the People’s Republic of Illinois remained at home, while another man named Pat Quinn from Lansing, Illinois filled in.  The phony Quinn (as opposed to the phony Governor Quinn) agreed to assist in the subterfuge after hearing a plea for help from the left-leaning broadcast tandem of Roe Conn and Richard Roeper on their afternoon drive time radio show.


To those of us familiar with the WLS Radio broadcast schedule, the Roe and Roeper show follows Rush Limbaugh at 2:00 pm, which is when many of us change the dial.  If only ridding ourselves of our corrupt governor were as easy.


In fairness to Governor Quinn, his office did say that he will fulfill the terms of his wager sometime in the future, no doubt after his union handlers have given him their O.K.
