A Springfield media company scheduled a “Rally for Common Sense” tomorrow outside the Capitol. For those not following state government on a minute-by-minute basis, here’s a rundown of why that might be a good idea. There’s two weeks left in the scheduled spring session, legislative leaders remain in personal political gridlock, there’s open class warfare among Senate Democrats, the current budget is $750 million in the red, next year’s budget is worse off, state auditors say more than $1 billion in health care bill payments are being pushed back weeks in order to make the books look better than they are AND the political world awaits a verdict in a corruption case involving the governor’s top political fundraiser. On the other hand, one of this company’s stations had a morning show that featured an overweight man running down a busy Springfield business corridor in underwear or a diaper.
