God bless Don Harmon. If I owned a losing team, I'd want him in the locker room for his pep talks. We have the slowest-growing (2nd-slowest? 3rd?)economy in the country, the fastest-leaving population (2nd? 3rd?), the highest (2nd? 3rd?) business tax rate. We got everything in this state.
Don's party has been in charge. It's time for his party to step up, which is what Don does, with a pep talk. He won't say die. He's our go-to man for stiff upper-lipping it through one catastrophe or threat of catastrophe after another. He loves living dangerously.
He's really the Peter Pan of Illinois politics — won't grow up, will never grow up, will never wake up and smell the coffee brewing another statewide jobs-killing floperoo, and instead calls for another potful of Democrat know-how and temporary fix-it-ism.
