The [Wednesday] Papers

"The schedule says Governor's Day, also known as Republican Day, but make no mistake: It's Gov. Bruce Rauner's day at the Illinois State Fair," the Tribune reports.

"The festivities kick off with a GOP breakfast at a downtown Springfield hotel, followed by a host of speakers including Rauner, followed by the traditional rally at the director's lawn on the State Fairgrounds."

Is there a dunk tank?

*

I'm pretty sure I swore off the dunk tank jokes. Sorry. The first one, IIRC, was to solve the city's financial problems by charging a dollar a person to dunk Rahm. (I was also quite fond of the Rahm swear jar idea.)

Anyway, Rauner. My guess is he'll arrive on his motorcycle. He'll wear a plaid shirt with that leather vest.

There's never an egg-timer around when you need one.

"Gov. Bruce Rauner promised Wednesday that Republicans would outspend Democrats this fall in a GOP effort to reclaim the Illinois General Assembly," AP reports.

"This year, we're going to go toe-to-toe with them," Rauner told party county chairmen at an event starting the Illinois Republican Party Governor's Day at the Illinois State Fair. Rauner said Democrats have far outspent the GOP in recent elections, but "we're going to do better than they do. You'll see the biggest ground game ever for legislative races in Illinois."

Rauner's ground game vs. the Bears' ground game. Discuss.

I'll get us started: Neither has enough talent or experience to win.

A sampling.

Agreed. And not by access, punditry/"analysis" or polls/predictions, but by simply examining the available record.
