Watch this video of Assemblyman Mike Bost of Illinois having a freak-out at his seat over “pension reform”:


My guess is that many people will be enthused. They are known as “Bost-Positive.”

Many other people will be horrified or embarrassed. They are known as “Bost-Negative.”

My sense is that, even more than party, the dividing line in politics this year is between Bost-Positives and Bost-Negatives. So, Dear Reader, which are you?

Illinois Republican Mike Bost goes nuts on Assembly floor

Seriously, though -- wouldn't you just love to be married to this guy?

About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
