Video: Bruce Rauner Makes Possibly Fatal Campaign Error, Orders Ketchup On Hot Dog

With just days before thousands of Illinoisans decide to stay away from their polling places rather than vote between two middle-age men with perpetually confused looks on their faces for governor, one of them committed a faux pas that had Chicago area media collectively gasping.

Republican gubernatorial nominee Bruce Rauner took his "Speak in Monosyllables Express" to a Portillo's restaurant in suburban Vernon Hills Tuesday, where he showed he could be even more daft than Gov. Pat Quinn about a mandatory Ebola quarantine. Rauner burnished his isolationist credentials and called for a travel ban from West Africa. But it was after Rauner proved he could recite from memory where he misstepped. Rauner placed an order for three hot dogs: one with everything; one plain; one with ... wait for it ... ketchup and mustard.

We're only half-joking when we say this will sway some votes Quinn's way.
