Question of the day

Thursday, Nov 15, 2012

* I was at the Prairietown “World’s Fair” over the summer and ran into Republican congressional candidate Rodney Davis and Democratic state Senate candidate Andy Manar. I’ve known both men for years and asked them to pose together for a bipartisan photo, on the condition that it not be published until after the election…

Both went on to win their respective elections.

* The Question: Caption?

    And that’s why they call him Rich “The Kingmaker” Miller. (among other things.


  2. - Takes one to know one - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:01 pm:

    Two and half men

    Candidates befriend the homeless.


  4. - How Ironic - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:05 pm:

    Rodney Davis and Andy Manar sharing an agreeable moment, shortly before they have to decide who gets to keep the ‘prize’ for winning the ring toss.

    And that’s why dermatologists strongly recommend that you use sunscreen.


  6. - Jacksonville - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:09 pm:

    You haven’t posted about Rep Jim Watson quitting to become a lobbyists.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:10 pm:

    The one thing Davis and Manar can agree on:

    No pictures …with RICH MILLER …before the election.


  8. - ThinkTangerine - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:12 pm:

    The Rich Miller bump?


  9. - Boone's is Back - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:13 pm:

    In preparation of Movember, Rich Miller is heads and shoulders above the competition.

    Rich Miller - The Candidate Minting Machine.


  16. - OneMan - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:33 pm:

    from the desk of CRAZY REPUBLICAN BLOGGER AND GADFLY (insert name here) it is because of the fact that Republicans posed for pictures with Democrats and that evil Rich Miller is why we lost.

    We must be more strident in our feelings that government is bad and everyone else is lazy to counter this evil.

    Purity Of Essence!


  17. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:35 pm:

    While McElroy and Gill spent the afternoon rubbing Lincoln’s Nose, Manar and Davis knew one picture with Rich Miller works even better.


  18. - The Fox - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:38 pm:

    And, the lambs laid down with the lion.

    The day Miller forgot to wear his “Rich” shirt.


  21. - Bigtwich - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:42 pm:

    Well, those are Bookends but that’s not Paul Simon.


  22. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:44 pm:

    Two guys with a future and one guy with a past.


  23. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:44 pm:

    While looking happy in this picture, these “three best friends” were still looking for Doug …


  24. - Skeeter - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:45 pm:

    More proof for Kass’s next “combine” column.


  25. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:46 pm:

    ===The day Miller forgot to wear his “Rich” shirt. ===

    I need to get me one of those.


  26. - OneMan - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:48 pm:

    == ===The day Miller forgot to wear his “Rich” shirt. ===

    I need to get me one of those. ==

    It needs a logo as well and not the site logo, like the word Rich with a beard beneath it or something.


  27. - Quizzical - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 1:52 pm:

    Republicans and Democrats agree: smoking and whiskey stunt growth and cause unseemly facial hair.


  28. - OneMan - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 2:00 pm:

    Both Davis and Manar said it was on their hand on Rich’s shoulder…. So who was the fourth man…


  29. - MrJM - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 2:09 pm:

    “We can edit him out later.”

  30. - just sayin' - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 2:11 pm:

    I don’t have a caption. But Rich you could do a good Santa. Just sayin’.


  31. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 2:17 pm:

    Rodney Davis and Andy Manar caught Rich and Andy has a good grip, here’s the picture to prove it.


  32. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 2:29 pm:

    Coming up next on Animal Planet: Finding Bigfoot.

    Don’t get too comfortable Rodney…

    Pffft. Forget about the fourth man. Show us pictures of all the “socialites” and groupies!

    On his way for Top Security Clearance…and a very kool license plate. What a photo (the right kind, of course) can now get you in the US!

    Why all would the blog have all this immunity–and “prestige”?


  42. - Dirty Red - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 3:29 pm:

    I didn’t know Oswego Willy was OK with having his photo posted on the blog.


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

    Which one am I suppose to be, I want to make sure I send my apologies!


  44. - Anonymous - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 4:02 pm:

    Dude in the middle looks way too presentable to be a journalist…….he sold out to the Man..


  45. - Anonymous - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 4:03 pm:

    No, no, Willy. To fit the new profile and pattern, you simply have to have an unstable sibling (preferably one who is even better “endowed,” (but a twin is best)) just in case you are caught and need a scapegoat.

    While you may not have such a sibling, I understand you have a very evil persona named “Wily.”

    That may do, so I wouldn’t apologize unless absolutely necessary.


  46. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 4:04 pm:

    Definitely get the hat with your name on it, Rich, ala Ernie Banks. Helps you to remember who you are when you get old enough to forget or if you get lost.


  47. - Anonymous - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 4:04 pm:

    See…just like I have (though I never asked for) Anonymous 4:02.


  48. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 4:11 pm:

    ===While you may not have such a sibling, I understand you have a very evil persona named “Wily.” ===

    Wily, while a nice Fella, we currently are not speaking. Wily, if you are reading this … “The Cat walks silently on the Fence” … sorry, I just wanted to let Wily “know”… its ok.

    To the Caption:

    This picture was taken “pre-Steak Smoothie” and you can tell by their happy faces!


  49. - Wensicia - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 4:14 pm:

    Manar: “Who is this guy?”

    Davis: “Dunno; probably escaped from some local funny farm?”

    You look like that writer, mmmmmm, when he lived in Havana!~

  53. - Independent - Thursday, Nov 15, 12 @ 6:19 pm:

    Rich don’t pose with no losers.

    From GQ Magazine:
    “Darker colors have a slimming effect, while lighter tones can cause the reverse, particularly if the gentleman is short in stature.”

    It would work better if Rich and Rodney were switched, but what about

    “The good, the bad, and the ugly”


  61. - Johnny Justice - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 12:16 am:

    When Andy gets a 4 year term, he will run for Congress in mid term and beat Davis.
