Exactly right. IL would be a red state if it weren't for Crook County.

Randal: [to Dante] Would you grow up!
Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.

If less than half of the residents of IL lived in the Chicago area, it would be a different political landscape.

Deal with the reality and quit yer bitchin.

Compered to 40 years ago, we are as clean as the driven snow.

The Chicago folks no longer have the ability to "steal" a state election. But more voters outside Cook County have woken up to the political realities.

Not "stolen", just "bought". Not in the form of outright payouts like a precinct captain giving hams or booze to people, but look at the special interest groups that dominate the system and how legislation benefits them. Look at how every ten years redistricting is done. Look at what happens when an incumbent legislator dies or resigns - his/her replacement is selected by party committeemen of the incumbent party, no special election where the voters have a say. Look at the shenanigans in the tenth IL house district where party leaders backed an incumbent who is facing bribery charges in the hopes that they could pressure him off the ballot later and install another of their own choosing. How many unions came out against a vote for a constitutional convention in 2008 because of the possibility that the constitutional provisions protecting pensions might be threatened?

Here’s a fact that ought to further depress the feckless, disorganized Illinois Republican Party: Illinois is the most Democrat-dominated state in the union, measured by the party’s control over state government and its votes for U.S. Senate and president.

The Democrats have controlled the governor’s mansion and both houses of the legislature since January 2003. They stayed in power even after their two-time governor was impeached following one of the biggest corruption scandals in the state’s history.

The only place Democrats have been running state government longer? West Virginia.

West Virginia also sends two Democrats to the U.S. Senate, but while the state remains true to its Southern Democratic heritage at the state level, it voted Republican for president in 2000, 2004 and 2008. Illinois trumped that by not only voting Democratic in 2000 and 2004, but providing the Democratic presidential candidate in 2008.

For the four years between 2006 and 2010, Democrats even controlled all six statewide offices, and the state Supreme Court.

Why are Republicans so powerless in Illinois? As the saying goes, geography is destiny. It’s all about Cook County, which contains half of Illinois’ voters. Only Delaware, Hawaii and Rhode Island -- tiny states with similarly Democratic voting records -- are so dominated by a single urban county.

Illinois’ GOP has become irrelevant because of its association with the national Republican brand: white and rural, with a desire to bring religion into public life, and a belief that the government has no business telling people how many guns they can own.

Unfortunately, the Republicans’ last gubernatorial nominee, Bill Brady, embodied those values. Brady campaigned as though he lived in the Illinois of the Republican Party’s dreams -- an Illinois that does not include Cook County. He counted on Downstaters’ resentment of the Colossus of the North carrying him to victory. The result: He won 99 of 102 counties, and still lost. Pat Quinn would have been elected to a full term even if he’d just carried Cook County.

Republicans will just have to get used to the fact that the Democrats have become the natural governing party of Illinois. They may be able to sneak in a governor after years of one-party fatigue, but as long as the Democrats are the big-city party, and the Republicans the small-town party, they’ll never dominate this state again.
