I've been getting to work a bit earlier now that I'm in the talk show business. And that means that I'm privy to a whole new kind of morning light. I usually get in between 8:30am-9am, but now I'm on the bus around 7am. So the bottom part of the morning sky is still a bit orange. What's not to like about a half orange sky? Well, it was the visual equivalent of this song, which I quickly pulled up off the phone. Click "play" - and bask in it.
All right, we done with that moment?
Today on Eight Forty-Eight: What kind of GOP is the Illinois GOP? With the primaries under way and the nominees jostling for position, it reminds us that, once again, we may end up with no active role in this presidential nomination process. Our primary is March 20th, which could be waaaaay after this thing will be decided. So if Illinois was up tonight, who would this state choose? Romney? Maybe, but the straw poll back in the fall said Ron Paul. Is it possible that the Illinois GOP is more Tea Party than thought? And what will the GOP voter do with no "Ryan" running? Jim, Jack, George, etc. It's weird without one.
Anyway, in studio analysis, your calls and former Governor Jim Thompson. Big Jim, waving that big stick.
