The [Friday] Papers

"Republican leaders called Thursday for Susanne Atanus to drop out of the GOP primary for the 9th Congressional District after she told the Daily Herald this winter's bitter weather is a sign that God is angry over abortions and same-sex marriage," the paper reports.

God refused to comment.


"[Atanus's opponent, David Earl] Williams, of Chicago, has some issues of his own. He has a domestic violence order of protection that was brought by a former girlfriend and approved by a Washington, D.C., judge in December.

"Williams' campaign manager, Rae Ann McNeilly of Taxpayers United of America, called it a 'frivolous, unfounded claim' that resulted from a six-month, casual long-distance relationship."

Apparently that argument did not work in court.


The "winner" of this primary goes on to lose to Jan Schakowsky.

"Meanwhile, on more traditional issues, Atanus said she would work to eliminate the stock indexes, including the S&P, Dow Jones and Nasdaq, to fix the economy."

So she's not all bad.


In seemingly related news . . .

"lllinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford declared Thursday that he was not a 'Republican with horns and a tail,'" the Sun-Times reports.

That would be Bruce Rauner, though for this campaign he's only wearing an $18 tail.


"The four Republican candidates for governor tried to woo downstate Illinois voters at the latest in a series of debates Thursday, pledging not to let the state be dominated by Chicago-area clout," AP reports.

Rauner promised to cheat his kid into Southern Illinois University for a semester just to prove it.


"All vowed to live in the governor's mansion in Springfield, something incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn and predecessor Rod Blagojevich were criticized for not doing."

Rauner noted that "I've got way more experience living in mansions than anyone else in the race."


"I'm the only one who hasn't been in Springfield for decades," Rauner said.

But he's sure he could find it with a map and John Buck's bus.


(h/t: Rich Miller on the bus.)


"Citing a late Republican political icon from the Peoria area, Rauner said, 'Many of you will remember our wonderful U.S. Sen. Everett Dirksen. He had a famous line about corruption in Springfield, Cleanliness is next to godliness, except in the Illinois legislature, where it's next to impossible,'" the Tribune reports.

"But Dirksen didn't say that - the line is attributed to Adlai E. Stevenson II, the late former governor and twice unsuccessful Democratic presidential candidate."
