Adventures in unsubtle Tweeting, and a caption contest

Wednesday, Aug 29, 2012

* If you’re saying that you’re totally focused on the 2012 general election, then retweeting stuff like this probably isn’t advisable

* And speaking of Treasurer Rutherford, he and another likely Republican gubernatorial candidate had a friendly little chat yesterday. A good pal snapped a photo of Rutherford talking to Sen. Kirk Dillard and forwarded it to me…

  13. - just sayin' - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 10:40 am:

    Yeah well I think your vote to raise electic rates hurts you more than my Pongee facebook page hurts me. But I agree, we’re both pudgy old white guys who are kidding ourselves and trying to reclaim past glory.

  24. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:05 am:

    Rutheford thinks: Man, it looks like Dillard is losing weight lately. Does this suit make me look fat?

    Dillard thinks: Man, I’m so hungry I could eat Rutherford’s tie.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:09 am:

    “Kirk, I don’t remember the invite saying ‘tie optional’ …”

    “We are bigger than US Steel …you gonna eat that?”


  26. - GA Watcher - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:11 am:

    No offense, Kirk, but I think my jowls look more gubernatorial than yours.

  29. - Liberty First - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:20 am:

    Dillard is thinking, Dan is talking, not a lot happening….


  30. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:23 am:

    Rutheford: Don’t look now, but Sullivan is taking our picture.

    Dillard: Great. Just what I need. Another freaking caption contest. Do they have WiFi here? I gotta go check comments… Um… I mean… My email.


  31. - John A Logan - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:24 am:

    My name is Dan Rutherford. Dan Rutherford believes that people have the right to govern themselves, and that the treasurers office is something to be held up with reverence. Again my name is Dan Rutherford, from Pontiac Illinois. I was a Senator once, but I realized the challenges we faced needed leadership that could not be commanded in that body. So, I, Dan Rutherford, ran for the office of treasurer and won. Now the front door says “Dan Rutherford” state treasurer. Dan Rutherford is just sort of fun to say, it rolls off the tongue…..say it with me Kirk, nice and sloooooooooooowly…….Daaaannnnnnn Ruuuuutherford.

    So, are you paying me to drop out, or am I paying you?


  35. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:30 am:

    “I hope you think about my offer to be my ‘LG’, Kirk.”


  36. - reformer - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:36 am:

    “Kirk, you don’t have that lean look that comes from knocking on doors 40 hours a week.”

    “Dan, did I tell you I’m changing my name to Kirk ‘Edgar’s assistant’ Dillard?”


  37. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:44 am:

    “I’m not really this self-absorbed … I’m misunderstood”


  38. - SO IL M - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:45 am:

    No Dan I didnt eat my tie. Im not wearing one so I can show people my Fire Madigan T-shirt I have on under this shirt.


  39. - TwoFeetThick - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:49 am:

    Rutherford: “Gosh, with his fancy clothes and youthful exuberance, do you think Schock will be tough to beat?”

    Dillard: “Schock? I ate him.”


  40. - SO IL M - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:49 am:

    Kirk thinking…”Boy I never thought I would miss drinking with Forby, but at least listening to him makes me laugh”


  41. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 11:55 am:

    “I-L-L …?”

    DR: “…so, I’d really appreciate your vote in the straw poll, Kirk. What? Oh.”


  52. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 2:32 pm:

    “What people don’t realize is that I don’t really care about being Treasurer …I hide that.”


  53. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 2:34 pm:

    “I am calling this my ‘Trojan Horse’ Strategy. No one realizes what I am doing right now, then … ‘Suprise, I am running for Governor’ …”


  54. - SO IL M - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 3:20 pm:

    “Kirk how in the world did you get them to put Edgar on your name tag?”

    Walter looked on and thought “And they call me a grumpy old man. Sheesh!”

    “So Kirk tell me, how is that cousin of yours doing? The one who is a Trooper down in district 13, who was big on DUI enforcement.”

    “Hell I dont know what to use for a new slogan. Hey I know, lets see if we can get Rich Miller to find us one.”


  55. - zatoichi - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 3:29 pm:

    Fresh ice! That’ll get me out of this.

    “Dan, did you see Jim Ryan or Schillerstrom? I wanted to buy them a drink.”


  60. - TwoFeetThick - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 4:20 pm:

    Rutherford: “Geez, Kirk, I hate to say this, but you’re really packing it on.”

    Dillard: “This? Nah, that’s not my belly. I’ve got Schock in here. For the surprise finale of today’s program he’s gonna pop out in his Italian restaurant tablecloth outfit and do a song and dance number. It’s gonna be legendary!”


  61. - Mary Todd - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 4:44 pm:

    Dan: Continue to block all substantive action, Illois gets downgraded, financial troubles continue to mount and BANG I swoop in on my white horse in 2014. I’ll let you saddle my horse if you’re good.


  62. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Aug 29, 12 @ 4:44 pm:

    “And the next thing I knew, some guy came up and tripped me. That’s the reason why I came in fourth. If it hadn’t been for that, that race would have been a cinch. I tried to find out who it was later but I couldn’t find out. Nobody’d ever tell you who…whoever, whoever it was because they’d be scared.”
