    Our campaigns have something in common, Great taste, less filling and no winning.


  2. - walkinfool - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:33 am:

    Two big wind producers.


  3. - Anonymous - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:34 am:

    So this is what all of you common people drink……..


  4. - Darienite - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:35 am:

    BR: Taste great.
    AG: Less filling.


  5. - Abe the Babe - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:36 am:

    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!


  6. - wordslinger - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:36 am:

    What’s the point of being a millionaire if you drink Miller Lite?


  7. - wordslinger - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:37 am:

    Three Lites short of a six-pack.


  8. - just sayin' - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:39 am:

    Yeah it’s pretty hilarious Alexi, those Republican rubes have no idea I’ve given more money to Democrats than you and your entire family have.


  9. - Rufus - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:39 am:

    Alexi, all that money and the best you can do is treasure!?!


  10. - Abe the Babe - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:39 am:

    Is it just me or does Alexi look like he is right out of one of those Jos. A Banks commercials?

    I wonder is that was the fourth suit he got for free.


  11. - Richard Afflis - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:41 am:

    Is this the beer you had with Mark Kirk at Billy Goat?
    How did you like that place?


  12. - Ron Burgundy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:41 am:

    “Yep, Alexi. I’m learning a lot about tilting at windmills.”


  13. - just sayin' - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:43 am:

    Bruce, you can buy a insignificant office in Illinois, but not a Senate seat or the Governorship.


  14. - Name Withheld - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:43 am:

    BR: … and she says ‘20 bucks, same as downtown.’ (laughs)
    AG: (sigh)


  15. - anon sequitor - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:44 am:

    You spent how much per vote?


  16. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:44 am:

    “Then Alexi, I told Rahm …he he he ..”


  17. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:45 am:

    “I know! I’m a Republican …crazy, right?”


  18. - so... - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:47 am:

    Bruce Rauner laughs after he sees his waiter wearing a name tag.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:50 am:

    “You thought you spent ‘real money’ on your race …”


  20. - Reality Check - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:51 am:

    A couple of windbags in their natural element.


  21. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:52 am:

    “My daughter gradutated from Payton Prep already! Too bad, so sad! …”


  22. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:53 am:

    “Oh Alexi … you think YOU have clout?”


  23. - too obvious - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:55 am:

    A big past supporter of Democrats, pictured here with Alexi Giannoulis.


  24. - Exhausted - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:57 am:

    One that is good, two that is bad….you choose!


  25. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 10:57 am:

    “So your friend’s daughter didn’t make it into Payton Prep?”


  26. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:00 am:

    “You think they are going to see my tax returns? Oh Alexi …”


  27. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:01 am:

    “Honestly, Alexi, I just say whatever comes to my head at that moment, and these people eat it up. I just laugh!”


  28. - Darienite - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:03 am:

    Why yes, I will need a liutenant governor - but I’m a Republican, hahaha!!


  29. - onevoter - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:05 am:

    Hey Alex, I’m as tall as you. Do you think you can get me into one of those pick-up basketball games with your buddy, Barack?


  30. - 47th Ward - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:06 am:

    We think the Taurus and the Miller Lite make us seem more like a regular guy. Did you know we sent our daughter to public school?


  31. - AFSCME Steward - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:11 am:

    Bruce, you’re a millionaire. Surely you could afford better than Miller Light.


  32. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:15 am:

    “Oh, Alexi, you must be ‘new’ to all this politics stuff…”


  33. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:17 am:

    “No, Alexi, we should meet and talk. How about we meet at your bank …”


  34. - John A Logan - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:19 am:

    No…..(laughing). I just carry this Miller Lite Bottle for effect. Trying to get the “everyday man” thing down. I fill it with Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch. Want some?


  35. - Exhausted - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:20 am:

    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!


  36. - Knome Sane - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:21 am:

    Rauner: “ok, here’s the punch line: Arne made a call to Payton and poof, my daughter, Precious, was admitted. Just like that! It’s good to be da King”.


  37. - Tom - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:24 am:

    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!


  38. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:26 am:

    “It’s not like my daughter is the only one ever clouted into Payton Prep. Like anyone even cares, right …”


  39. - Anonymour - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:31 am:

    So Bruce, it’s better to have any federal investigation come after the election.


  40. - NotAnAlexiFan - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:33 am:

    Giannoulias? Where have I heard that name Before. I know, didn’t Robin Kelly work for you?


  41. - litetly - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:33 am:

    Bruce: Damn consultants tell me I have to drink this stuff.

    Alexi: By the time they’re done with you, that’s all you’ll be able to afford.


  42. - Dirty Red - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:34 am:

    “And so Chip says to Bernie, ‘He’s as pro-life as Mark Kirk and Jim Edgar.’……GET IT?!”


  43. - DaMouse - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:36 am:

    You want a job?! Go away kid, you bother me.


  44. - zatoichi - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:40 am:

    AG:Sorry, it’s Dos Equis or nothing.
    BR:I need to remember that.

  47. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:50 am:

    “You think I’m funny … Alexi … you have got to check out this ‘chicken’ I have on my Facebook ads … what a stitch!”


  48. - The Muse - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:54 am:

    “‘Don’t go below I-80 because it’s unnecessary??’ Is that how you won your election Senator Giannoulias?”


  49. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:55 am:

    “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 …”


  50. - siriusly - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:57 am:

    Rauner: (laughing) - Wait you lost to Mark Kirk? Wow he’s even more of a RHINO than me!


  51. - siriusly - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 11:58 am:

    sorry I meant RINO


  52. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:00 pm:

    “True story, …Alexi, I asked Rahm about you, and he said …’Alexi who?’… makes me laugh every time!”

    99 bottles of beer on the wall…..

    1 bottle of beer on the wall, and it’s mine, all mine…


  54. - Quizzical - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:08 pm:

    I know you were younger when you went from rising star to politically irrelevant, but with this campaign I am running, I will do it much faster.


  55. - The unknown poster - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:08 pm:

    Alexi, this is how you appeal to the middle class…lose the tie and drink watered down beer.


  56. - Omay - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:10 pm:

    Here, let me find a quarter. See if you can roll it off your nose and into the bottle.


  57. - The Captain - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:21 pm:

    (How’d I get stuck talking to this guy? Burnham said there’d be press here. I gotta pee.)


  58. - OneMan - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:21 pm:

    Rule #1, don’t have a family bank


  59. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:33 pm:

    “Oh Alexi … I, um, …DID … get you resume and all your calls … I thought you would take the hint … oh, too funny …”


  60. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:34 pm:

    “Alexi!…If you have to ask how much it costs, you can’t afford it!”


  61. - 47th Ward - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:35 pm:

    You know what they say: you don’t really buy beer, you only rent it.


  62. - L.S. - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:35 pm:

    “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?”


  63. - Perry Noya - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:54 pm:

    Why do seemingly all of Rich’s commenters hate Rauner? I don’t support Rauner, but doesn’t the guy have a friend in the world?


  64. - redleg - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 12:54 pm:

    And now the retirees….They run from US!!!

    “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”


  67. - G. Willickers - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 1:15 pm:

    Waiter. Waiter! Yah. You in the red tie there. I need another bottled water. This one’s empty.


  68. - just sayin' - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 1:18 pm:

    This consultant guy said I need to drink this cheep beer for the sake of the 47%’re vote. The sacrifices I’m making for this state!

  70. - Anonymour - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 1:25 pm:

    BR: “And that Jason Plummer is so funny. He thinks you should get into politics just because your dad has money!”


  71. - Chicago Cynic - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 1:30 pm:

    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.


  72. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 1:36 pm:

    - Chicago Cynic -,

    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?”


  73. - unclesam - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 1:55 pm:

    BR: “Hey, I just bought your bank. No really, they even threw in a bucket of Miller Lite. Here, have one…”


  74. - Perry Noya - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:00 pm:

    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.


  75. - 68democrat - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:03 pm:

    Alexi thinks to himself: This guy is definitely no Barack Obama.

    Miller Lite’s guerrilla marketing campaign sure is paying off.


  78. - LisleMike - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:15 pm:

    “HA HA No, just because I am taller than you doesn’t make me Jason Plummer!”


  79. - Anonymous - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:16 pm:

    = is there no pro-Rauner sentiment? If not, that tells me something.=

    While this probably isn’t the thread for it, I certainly would be interested in hearing what you believe that “something” is.


  80. - Anonymour - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:33 pm:

    “In the universe of Cap Fax readers, is there no pro-Rauner sentiment?”

    It seems the answer is “no, he hasn’t bought any here yet.”


  81. - Anonymous - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:39 pm:

    Anonymour, I was assuming that the comment hinted that Mr. Rauner was therefore making great friends over at IR–which, of course, then lead me to ask exactly what the “something” was.


  82. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:42 pm:

    “Oh, the Taurus … I thought you were talking about my REAL cars … Oh, yeah, its a ‘great car’… “


  83. - Perry Noya - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:43 pm:

    Anonymous, it tells me that Rauner is Bob Dole H.W. McRomney.

    I have violated Rich’s rules by not offering a caption, so:

    “But why can’t you endorse me, Alexi? You know how us rich guys always stick together, right?”


  84. - Amuzing Myself - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 2:58 pm:

    OW almost beat me to it:

    AG: “Seriously, Bruce. You and Plummer would be the perfect ticket! He could do TV appearances, and you can do the retail stuff! You know, like stumping on Right to Work!”


  85. - Mr. Jim Lahey - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 3:06 pm:

    This Miller Lite endorsement is great! I just turn the label out for a quick pic, then BOOM! 20 Grand.


  86. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, May 9, 13 @ 3:20 pm:

    - Amuzing Myself -,

    Nicely done.

    When I am on my “Plummer” meds I try not to think of Jason. Then they don’t work as well.

    Caption?

    “Alexis, you say ‘Constitution’ like I am suppose to care! That’s rich… Oh, like me?… Oh, stop, I can’t breathe!”

    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!
