* From, of course, Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s Facebook page

And, no, I don’t believe that’s Aaron Schock in the photo behind Rutherford. But it looks a bit like him, don’t you think?

As always, keep it clean, people.

    Ok Mr. Rutherford, now that your hair has been trimmed, time to frost your tips. Then, it will be time for you mani-pedi. Would you like a seaweed wrap as well?

    @FakeAaronSchock Don’t vote for a guy who goes to supercuts

    @FakeAaronSchock Hey @FakeRutherfordDan you are never going to win unless you have a full grooming team and a stylist like me.

    @FakeAaronSchock Hey @FakeRutherfordDan the cover of Modern Maturity is no Men’s Health, but take what you can get I guess.

    That little patch in front helps keep my hat on during horseshoe tournaments. Nice, huh?


  12. - NIref - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:04 am:

    Rutherford begins to regret going to a salon instead of a real barber.


  13. - Ahoy! - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:04 am:

    The Treasurer has starting to spike his hair in front and will additionally start “popping” his collars.


  14. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:13 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - fingers crossed, if I am good, a lollypop will be my reward! #LollypopsAndHaircuitsFor11AndUnder

    @FakeRutherfordDan - A quick “Danny-Poll”, do I go “Beiber” “Pattenson” or “Herzog” #HittingAllDemoGroups

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Yeah, the picture of me is a bit large for the Barber, but you need something big to get all I am. “EgosRequireAttention

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Toilets, Haircuits, wait till you see what I do next! #YesYouNeedToCareAboutMe

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I usually go a #3 for the top and #2 on the sides. Today, #2 on the top and #3 on the sides! #HappyOppositeDay

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Some Dems said I need to cut 10% from my own budget. Here you go, democrats, 10% I thought of - off the top of my head! #HaircutHumorIsSharp


  15. - Manti - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:15 am:

    Is he in the way? Sorry about that. Just a thought bubble that pops up from time to time. Think about Pongee. Think about Pongee. Think about Pongee.

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Yea, this is the haircuit I choose and pay for #GroomingJokesHurt

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I told the Barber “Save these clippings, A future governor’s hair is worth something!” #YepISaidThat

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I bet @FedGuestBlago doesn’t get this service with his hair! #PrisonCutsHaveLessFlair

    @FakeRutherfordDan - When the Barber finished, I signed my poster-size yearbook picture for her. #ReallyNotNecessary

    @FakeRutherfordDan - The Barber asked if I was someone famous, I told her, “No, just a humble public servant” #PrentendingToBeRealAlwaysLookFake

    @FakeRutherfordDan - gel or no gel … seriously. #Vanity

    @FakeRutherfordDan - 1 more haircut, and my next is “free” #ValueIsDifferentForEveryone

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Was dissapointed when Barber yelled “Dan” and didn’t look at me right away. #TipMaysuffer

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Necessary haircuit, my head is not fitting in the double-doors of my Office. #BigEgoLargeHead


  24. - the wonderboy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:30 am:

    (Photo on the cover of his latest mailer)

    Dear (Insert Name of Person I am Asking for Money),
    I’ve been out talking to voters all over the state, and one thing is clear–you all want me to be governor. While I have fought back and done my darndest to avoid the call, I can hold back the chants of my people no more. So I’m in it…if you can just help me out in one small way.

    As you can see, I have lots of hair clippings. Your campaign to get me elected as governor is going to cost lots of money. So, for just $29, I will send you a piece of my hair with an autographed business card (with Alexi’s name crossed off to save money). For just $53, I’ll throw in a picture of me washing Pongee. And for just $1000, I’ll send you the plunger I used to fix my own toilet at me condo in Chicago.

    By the way, my sister wanted to send this note from her house as I’m on the road, but I decided I could take care of this one.

    Your pal and the one you have been waiting for,
    Dan

    P.S. If you’ll send me a book of stamps, I’ll send you a link to my “personalized” birthday video…just for you.


  25. - Wumpus - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:32 am:

    Well, I could have done worse and gone to her stylist


  26. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:34 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Would a tweet of me waxing my back next be .. too much? #WhereIsTheLine


  27. - Irish - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:34 am:

    Dan Rutherford under cover in an attempt to catch the Great Clips Robber. “I heard there was a reward” he stated, “I could use the money in my budget in case Quinn cuts me again.”

    Dan Rutherford poses for his poster for his
    “I got trimmed so should you.” campaign on cuts in the Illinois budget.


  28. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:36 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - just getting a haircuit, like everyone else #GoveOopsTreasurersArePeopleToo


  29. - dupage dan - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:38 am:

    Now that Carmindy has completed Dan’s makeup he will be finishing up with hosts Stacy and Clinton and then it’s on to the final reveal on this weeks’ edition of “What Not To Wear”!!!

    (yeah, yeah - I watch it. Stop laughing)


  30. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:41 am:

  32. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:44 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - Barber told me they were all fighting over my haircut. Honored. #ShortStrawDoesNotMeanWin

  34. - Jake From Elwood - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:47 am:

    I just realized that Dan Rutherford and I share essentially the same haircut although his is probably grayer.
    That’s a good looking haircut!

  38. - Michelle Flaherty - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 10:58 am:

    Rich, the only similarity to Schock is the size of the head.


  39. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 11:05 am:

    Thanks, - AA -…apppreciate that.

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I told the Barber I am on TV quite often, she must not have television. #HowCanYouNotKnowMe?

  44. - South of Sherman - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 11:22 am:

    Rutherford PAYS someone for that haircut? I assumed all he needed for that was two beers and a weed-whacker.


  45. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 11:31 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - I bet Oswego Willy I could go without posting on The Facebook for 1 hour. I lost & pay off my bets. Kojak, right OW? #DoubleOrNothingGoldfishOW?


  46. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 11:41 am:

    @FakeRutherfordDan - “Danny-Poll” What should I have shaved on the back of my head; State Seal, Dollar Sign, or “DR Rulz”. Random winning tweet gets my HS Yearbook poster, seen behind me, signed. #YeahIAmSeriousVoteNow

    Rutherford getting clipped, while everyone else in Illinois gets scalped.


  51. - Ghost of John Brown - Tuesday, Jan 29, 13 @ 11:56 am:

    Forget the fake Schock photo, doesn’t the barber look like that goofy Kate from “Kate + 8″? Maybe her 15 minutes of fame is over and she had to get a real job.

    I’m sorry mam, I don’t have the $20 to pay for my haircut. Blame it on state employees and the Democrats.

    @FakeRutherfordDan - the only thing that makes me feel closer to the “little pepole”, other than The Facebook or The Twitter, is getting a haircuit. No fanfare, just haircut. #LetThemGetHaircuits
