Just how lousy a candidate was Bill Brady?
Way lousy. Illinois elected several crazy people Tuesday. Against that grim qualitative standard, Brady still fell below the Mendoza Line.
He not only lost a race almost any normal (breathing regularly) Republican would have won, he does not comprehend that he lost. Nope, he says. I didn’t lose. There are more votes to count.
At this moment, this hard-edged clear-thinking businessman is waiting for results from the outlying Inca precincts because he’s very strong in the dead-700-years-ago Latino demographic. When those write-in votes from Machu Picchu arrive, he’s sure to be over the top. Just be patient.
