* Kyle Hillman tweets

Just spotted, Sen. Dillard working the crowd at #Illinois Legislative Latino Caucus Conference - he reads @CapitolFax

* From the photo

I’ll convince commenter “Cincinnatus” - a noted Dillard supporter - to buy the winner an adult beverage.

    “You … you are part of the 19% that voted Republican … well, Gracias!”


  2. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:01 pm:

    “I remember you, From Election Day … yes … Oh you did? Well, maybe next time you can vote for us Republicans.”

    “I hope I can get your support … by sundown tomorrow.”

    “There you are … right there … me pointing at you … part of the Latino community, … Hey, HI! … and here I am … with you …See, I’m trying!”


  3. - Rich Miller - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:06 pm:

    Dillard to himself: Man, time to ease off the tequila shots with Tony. My hand is so blurry I can hardly see it.


  4. - Doc Holliday - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:09 pm:

    Dillard: Heyyyy Macarena!


  5. - Downstater - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:12 pm:

    Good thing I added that English to Spanish/Spanish to English program to my new smart phone yesterday!


  6. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:20 pm:

    Hola! Wanna see my Cha-Cha?


  7. - SportShoz - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:21 pm:

    Dillard “So there I was a college student in Mexico for spring break, and there was this guy… with a little booth on the street… selling these beans, that - you won’t belive this were jumping… just like this. It was unbelieveable. Do you have any?”


  8. - OneMan - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:22 pm:

    What do you mean Dan got here 2 hours ago?


  9. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:23 pm:

    “You want me to drink that… and EAT that … I dunno, I have reflux …”


  10. - The Other Anonymous - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:24 pm:

    “Oh, you’re here for the Oberweis job fair? I believe that’s down the street by Soldier Field.”


  11. - The Captain - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:28 pm:

    “Mi estaba Jim Edgar’s el Blackhawk de staff!”


  12. - The Speaker - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:30 pm:

    Que pasa?


  13. - Third Reading - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:34 pm:

    “Why of course I speak Spanish! Guacamole! Dos Equis! Cozumel! Hasta la vista, Baby!”

    I’m outta here.


  14. - Downstate weed chewing hick - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:39 pm:

    After GOP losses of historic proportions, 2014 Gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard moves so quickly to jump on the Latino bandwagon, he’s but a blur.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:41 pm:

    “Oh, don’t cover up your shirt … what does it say … ‘Yo ..(heart) …Tesorero Rutherford… por …Gobernador ‘… That’s not funny…”


  16. - He Makes Ryan Look Like a Saint - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:48 pm:

    See! Quinn esta muy loco!!! Uno mas Tequlla por favor.


  17. - Anon - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:50 pm:

    You got DingDongs? Really? “He’s got DingDongs, everyone!”


  18. - MrJM - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:50 pm:

    “What? You’re from ‘Puerto Rico’? Well that’s in Mexico, right?”

    – MrJM


  19. - LincolnLounger - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:51 pm:

    In an attempt to woo Hispanic support, Kirk Dillard belts out, “I want to be in America, everything free in America” before opening in the road company performance of “West Side Story” next week in Springfield.


  20. - Rich Miller - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:52 pm:

    Sen. Tony Munoz is gently pulled aside by an onlooker as Sen. Kirk Dillard begins to simulate a lasso trick he once saw on TV.


  21. - Small Town Liberal - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:58 pm:

    Dr. Emmett Brown: Now, remember. According to my theory, the Tea Party interfered with the GOP and Latino’s first meeting. If they don’t meet, they won’t build a significant relationship, they won’t work toward common goals and they won’t vote for one another. That’s why Dillard’s disappearing from that photograph. JBT will follow, and unless you repair the damage, you’ll be next.

    Rutherford: Sounds pretty heavy.


  22. - Endangered Moderate Species - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 2:59 pm:

    I looks like Roxanne is showing him the door.


  23. - Norseman - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:00 pm:

    Did you say, “Yo quiero Kirk Dillard?”


  24. - Jake From Elwood - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:01 pm:

    Cincy told me I need to go out there and shake a few more hands. But the mechanical handshaking device he lent me is on the fritz.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:06 pm:

    “you want me to try on that authentic outfit AND pose for a picture? …OK, I gues …!”


  26. - OneMan - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:09 pm:

    Roxanne and Dillard demonstrate a flawless french drop misdirection to make Pat Quinn’s grassroots pension plan appear behind someones ear.

    Moments later everyone was stunned in silence once they realized where Pat Quinn had produced his plan from…


  27. - LilLebowskiUrbanAchiever - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:11 pm:

    Man, I need to get in shape for this Governor’s race. These shake weights are muy bueno!!!


  28. - huh - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:12 pm:

    “You’re Latino? Wow, what a coincidence. I recently started caring about Latinos.”


  29. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:14 pm:

    “Oh, so you are Latino, I thought you were Hispanic…


  30. - 47th Ward - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:17 pm:

    Si se puede amigos.


  31. - x ace - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:22 pm:

    My Name - Jose Jiminez


  32. - shore - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:27 pm:

    I have 8 chins, one for each latino voter Romney won this election.


  33. - Jeeves the Cat - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:41 pm:

    Sorry, Mezcal shots always give me the jitters. Let’s stop as soon as I start to look like I’d at least be OK for the community.


  34. - Sinister - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:45 pm:

    Dillard: “So you all speak Mexican?”


  35. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:55 pm:

    “Oh, so that means you speak Mexican, and you speak… Spanish? How do you guys communicate so well, then?”


  36. - just sayin' - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 3:55 pm:

    You know when I served as Jim Edgar’s chief of staff there was nothing the governor and I enjoyed more than a chicken chimachanga at Chili’s. Sometimes when I felt frisky I would go with the steak chimachanga when I was Jim Edgar’s chief of staff.


  37. - Just the Facts - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 4:03 pm:

    Dillard - “I believe you mistaken. I’m sure we have a large Latino community in Hinsdale. I often see Latinos out working on their lawns.”


  38. - Boone's is Back - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 4:09 pm:

    “I like Latinos. I have lots of Latino friends!”


  39. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 4:09 pm:

    “Do you know Iris Martinez? She’s a good friend of mine. I thought you people all knew each other.”


  40. - Former Titan - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 4:28 pm:

    “This is my impression of how fuzzy the right’s message has become these days.”


  41. - Rich Miller - Friday, Nov 16, 12 @ 5:00 pm:

    “just sayin” wins. Cinci, you’re on the hook.
