Bruce the Alternative may be best distinction

Success - Article sent! close

At a recent debate sponsored by the Illinois Education Association, Gov. Pat Quinn and Republican challenger Bruce Rauner sparred over education in Illinois. At the outset, Gov. Quinn intoned that the assembled crowd of teachers not compare him to the "Almighty" -- one has to assume the governor was referring to God -- but to compare him to the "alternative," which is his Republican opponent. Mr. Rauner used the Almighty moniker at the end of the debate to announce himself as Bruce the Almighty.

Gov. Quinn may have inadvertently given Rauner a stronger campaign moniker should Rauner truly embrace the better name, Bruce the Alternative.

After all, who better than the governor himself to draw such a stark distinction between himself and his worthy opponent.
