* Sorry, kids. I’ve been a bit under the weather this morning. Have fun with this while I get myself together. Former Gov. Jim Edgar and my former intern Barton Lorimor posed for a pic at my election night party last week…

Be kind to Barton, please.

    Barton to Edgar: So are you Big Jim or Little Jim, you look pretty big to me.


  5. - story time - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:27 am:

    Gee, Mr. Edgar, that’s a neat story. You mean the GOP really had influence in Illinois way back when?


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:28 am:

    BARTON - 1ST TO MEET OSWEGO WILLY!


  7. - Capn - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:29 am:

    Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?


  8. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:32 am:

    “Say, ‘Madigan ain’t my problem’…”


  9. - Barton Lorimor - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:32 am:

    I’m glad you captured this moment. The Governor and I had just finished discussing an exciting business opportunity in Colorado.


  10. - Jaded - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:33 am:

    “Wow, the GOP is getting beat like a red-headed step…..oh, sorry about that kid. Hey look a photographer!”

  12. - Happy Returns - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:34 am:

    “Kid, you’ve got a great advantage over everyone else who wants a future in politics - you’re a ginger, so you got no soul to lose!”


  13. - Chicago Cynic - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:38 am:

    “Trust me on this one kid, boring can be your keys to the mansion if you’re running in the Illinois GOP!”


  14. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:44 am:

    “I am so excited to meet you! I know all about you. You are still talked about alot on Capitol Fax and I always said if I had a chance to meet you, I would just walk right up to you and tell you how much of a fan I am and all you did.

    Can I please have a picture for my Facebook page, or even Tweet that I met you. No one is ever going to believe it!”

    “Sure Governor Edgar…”


  15. - Robert the Bruce - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:45 am:

    “Barton was right! The 3-5-6 was the right Trifecta bet!”


  16. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:47 am:

    “Jimmy, I want you to meet the Kid, Barton …”


  17. - siriusly - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:48 am:

    Seen here are the only two people at at the CapitolFax election night party not under the influence of alcohol.


  18. - OneMan - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:48 am:

    Young man at one time moderate Jims ran this state in part, ran it I tell you. I know you may find this hard to believe but it is true.

    When I was elected to my first term, the only statewide elected Democrat as a U of I trustee…

    Now look where it has gone…

    Anyone seen the OTB machine?

  23. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 11:57 am:

    It was before the 2010 Re-Map and before “Crazy Joe Walsh” decided to take on his Constituents and start an Election Cycle disaster. It was when I met the world. And it was when I first met Jimmy Edgar …”

    He couldn’t have been more than or
    at the time, but he was already a legend.

    He’d just walk in and everybody
    who worked the room went wild.

    He couldn’t have been more than 60 at the time, but he was still a legend. He’d just walk in and everybody who worked the room went wild.

    Sorry! Better …


  25. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 12:08 pm:

    While Governor Edgar looks amazing, no one could get over how young and virile Lt. Governor Bob Kustra looked at Rich Miller’s Election Night Party.

  48. - Barton Lorimor - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 3:39 pm:

    For the last time, people: Jim Edgar is NOT wordslinger, but he does a way better Jameson keg stand than Oswego Willy.


  49. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 3:42 pm:

    - Barton Lorimor -,

    Next time don’t buy mer all those shots before I try doing a Keg Stand!

    I should get points for that …


  50. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 6:51 pm:

    Barton for the win!


  51. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 6:53 am:

    Barton, you mocked me … have you no heart?!

    …and you hurt my feelings too.

    To the Post:

    Barton Lorimor was a good sport and took this picture with Gov. Edgar.

    But …it wasn’t all nice-nice, as Gov. Edgar started their meeting with “Red Hair and a hand me down robe, You must be a Weasley!”

    As you can see, Gov. Edgar thought he was pretty funny.
