    “If you’re part of the Illinois Democratic Party, the Speaker never tells you that he’s going to take you out, doesn’t happen that way. There aren’t any arguments or curses like you read in the papers. See, the Speaker comes with smiles, he comes as your friend, telling you ‘You’ll be fine’, and the people he’s cared for all of his life, well, they might take over. And the Speaker always seem to come at a time that you’re at your weakest and most in need of his help…”

    Quinn has the look of a defeated man and he realizes it now, Madigan is wondering how he is going to manage the “crazy herd of cats” he has now in the majority of the house, and Lisa looks confident and knows that she has the upper hand if she decides to run for gov.

    ILLINOIS, It’s A Family Affair - Sly Stone, enhanced by VanillaMan

    It’s a family affair, it’s a family affair
    It’s a family affair, it’s a family affair

    One pol ends up to be
    Somebody voters learn to love yeah
    Another pol ends up to be
    Somebody voters learn to burn

    Dems loves the both of them
    They hope it’s in the blood,
    They hope it’s in the blood
    Both pols are good to the Dems
    Blood’s thicker than the mud,
    it’s a family affair!

    Governing’s a family affair, it’s a family affair

    He’s in his first term,
    But they’re still checking him out
    And nobody wants to blow
    Nobody wants to be left out
    They can’t leave ’cause their hearts are there Sure they want him somewhere else
    They can’t cry ’cause they’ll look broke down
    So they turn away and the state’s broke down

    Governing Madigan-style, it’s a family affair
    It’s a family affair, it’s a family affair
    It’s a family affair, it’s a family affair
