Rauner: Ohh Alexi, you have no idea how easy this campaign has been. I mean i just show up to these events and claim im one of them. I mean, i have cars worth more than these people’s houses and they think im “a good ole boy”. ha!
Hah, hah…hah, Alexi I guess you are correct we do have our names tags on the wrong side of our suits. Mine should have been on the right and yours on the left. Oh wait a minute, they are correct…no wonder you lost…sorry!
I thought that Rauner had good handlers, but him drinking at events is not a good thing. I am beginning to think he might just be another rich guy being taken by the political consultant crowd. It will be hard to completely pick his pockets since they run so deep, but my guess is they get him to give lots!
“I looked at your contributions to Democrats, and seriously, you want to talk about contributing to Democrats, pull up my contributions! Alexi, buddy, a ‘Contributor’ … match mine then come talk to me about being a ‘Democratic Contributor’… this is the best laugh I’ve had all week …”
“So I said to to hell with learning to be an effective candidate, I’m just gonna keep throwing money at it until the people love me. Anyway, they said I should ask you about that strategy…who are you again?”
“New Trier? Why would I let my Daughter go slumming in THAT school district when I can make ONE phone call and get her out of New Trier and into Payton Prep? … ‘What was wrong with “New Trier” for High School’… you are too funny Alexi”
Perry, I don’t think folks here “hate” Rauner. I think it’s more that this site has a lot of people who’ve been around quite a while. That demographic doesn’t tend to react well to rich folks who want to enter politics at the top. I actually think he’s pretty much a blank slate to folks. Writing on that slate is what the campaign is all about.
Or being hypocitical about being an “outsider” and using “clout” to get your daughter in the Top School In The State after she was denied, or contributing to Dems over and over, then deciding to run as a Republican , or …
The list goes on, but being rich and running for the top is comical, at least to me, but trying to play me for a fool, pretending to be “above it all” yet head-deep in it, tends to make me a bit jaded on a candidate, rich or not.
To the Caption,
“I only need to fool some of the people at the end to pull this off, and you know how dumb most voters are, am I right or am I right?”
Chicago Cynic and Oswego Willy, I appreciate your comments, and I think all the captions are humorous, but I repeat, in the universe of Cap Fax readers, is there no pro-Rauner sentiment? If not, that tells me something.

Alexi: Man, you’ve got a huMONgous snot hangin’ from your nose dude–really, I’ll turn away so as not to embarrass you, but you’ve really gotta pick it now…
Rauner (chuckling aloud): I WOULD, ‘Lexi, I swear, but comin’ from YOU?–a dyed-in the-wool LIBeral from the other PARty?–You guys I’m tryin’ to DESTROY?? You could just kiss my rich derriere, buddy. before I’d EVer take Orders from one of you bleedin’ hearts! No, THANKS ANYway, pal, I’ll just stand here with it hangin’ out instead, ‘Lex–AND look stupid, ‘o course, instead, ‘cuz that’s what you guys think Rich Conservatives do and look like ANYway, right? Ha, ha, ha…
