  24. - DemDownstater - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 9:22 am:

    (To Statehouse reporters:)
    You see, in Illinois we have a separation of powers and co-equal branches of government…that means in addition to me there are four legislative leaders who must weigh in on each issue………
    And that, folks, is how a bill becomes law.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 9:23 am:

    “I have 4 season tickets to the White Sox for the first legislator that will be my Floor Leader of their chamber …”

  30. - OneMan - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 9:26 am:

    that is why it is called a forehead, because you can put four fingers above the eyebrows before you hit hair or two hands of four in my case.

    “I can never get my fingers to do that ‘Live Long and Prosper’ thing right.”


  39. - Earnest - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 9:36 am:

    At one point in his statement about the need for the other leaders in state government to focus better, Governor Quinn flashed a peace sign to represent the fracking compromise efforts while simultaneously using ASL to sign I Love You first to veterans and then to proud union members. Catching sight of his four upraised fingers he then invented a new four-point plan to address the pension funding crisis and re-emphasized he wasn’t concerned about who he would be running against at the end of his four-year term.


  40. - the Patriot - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 9:36 am:

  45. - Skeeter - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 9:39 am:

    While you all are focusing on his fingers, I couldn’t help but notice the flag pin.

    That’s an AMERICAN flag pin, people.

    I kept hearing that Quinn is a Godless Communist Intent on Destroying Illinois and Turning it into a Socialist Wasteland (or at least that’s what I read on Illinois Review) but if he’s got a flag pin, that can’t possibly be the case.

    GO QUINN! USA! USA! USA!

Our *three* weapons are fear and surprise and ruthless efficiency and an almost fanatical dedication to the pope. Our *four*… No… Amongst our weapons… Amongst our weaponry are such elements as fear, sur- I’ll come in again.

    Four score and seven years ago we were actually a respected State!


  66. - Carlos S. - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 10:04 am:

    I used my 4 votes on the Sports Finance Authority to install the most qualified individual in the universe as director and her declaring bankruptcy to avoid paying her Bloomingdale’s bill says nothing about her financial responsibility or character. It’s all about what’s best for the people of the state.

  72. - Blue Dog - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 10:09 am:

    Inept politicians face a crisis in Illinois. They are facing more exposure by news outlets and challenges from within their own party. Help us keep the status quo. For just four more years or your time, you can be the sponsor of an inept politician. Please won’t you think of the hacks next election season?

Ok, so I’m BORing sometimes because I beLIEVE in clean Government–I know, I know we’re not perfect–far FROM it–we propose the right things, ‘n then all this game-playing, ‘n NAYsaying, meandering, and SheNANigans start up, but, hey, at least I’m not corrupt, and I’m tryin’, and what more these days can ya really ask for in the Land of Lincoln? Cmon’,really…it’s just 4…1-2-3-4–’n then BING, it’s gone–ya know, it’s uh, it’s like bang, bang,pow, shoot, like 4 quick shots on goal at a Blackhawks’ game, and, it’ll all be over so fast, you’ll hardly know what hit ya. Please? Cuz’ really, it’s just that many…

    “Let me tell ya, I was staying at Motel 6 when it was only 4 dollars.”


  127. - Northern Light - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 4:32 pm:

    Four More, Four More, Four More…(now to the tune of the Hall and Oates song…Baby come back (Sheila Simon), you can blame it all on me, I was wrong and I just can’t live win without you).


  128. - Du Jour - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 5:41 pm:

    Major sports teams in Chicago? Let’s see… Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, and Sox. Yep. That’s it. No, wait! How could I be so dumb. The Fire. I forgot the Fire!


  129. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 6:10 pm:

    Note to Northern Lights: Baby Come Back was not a Hall & Oates song, but thanks for planting it in my head.

    To the Post: Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D-Chicago) reacts after being asked by a reporter to rate Seth MacFarlane’s performance as host of the Academy Awards.

    Fumigate? Sure We Did! Let me count all the people who got fumigated. One, two, three…..done! Told you!


  131. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 6:20 pm:

    I have put forward at least FIVE, count them, FIVE, perfectly good pension reform plans and I’m getting tired of hearing that “the numbers don’t work.” I’m standing here right now and saying to my critics, “give me some proof that Pat Quinn’s math is no good!”


  132. - Oldtimer - Tuesday, Feb 26, 13 @ 6:55 pm:

    The number of friends I have left in Illinois politics
