    Don’t think Pete Townsend has anything to worry about.


  2. - John A Logan - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:25 pm:

    Shameful to mess up a nice strat.


  3. - Chicago Cynic - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:25 pm:

    Too easy.

    “$@!#!#! Pensions!! I’m sick and tired of @$@S#$# pensions!!!”


  4. - Norseman - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:27 pm:

    I guess he can’t quit his day job.


  5. - Chavez-respecting Obamist - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:32 pm:

    What did that guitar ever do to him?


  6. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:34 pm:

    Pretty sure that’s a prop guitar designed to be smashed over and over.

  8. - jerry 101 - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:38 pm:

    Senate President Pro Tempore Don Harmon learned the hard way that Target does not sell quality guitars.


  9. - jerry 101 - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:39 pm:

    Senate President Pro Tempore Don Harmon expresses his frustration: “Gosh freaking darn!! I knew I should have gone to Guitar Center instead of Target!!”


  10. - too obvious - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:40 pm:

    Don Harmon tries to be nerdier than that guy who sang David Bowie on the space station. Succeeds.


  11. - unclesam - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:41 pm:

    “Hulk Smash!”


  12. - doedoa - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:48 pm:

    “This guitar has too many long term costs associated with it; strings, amps, etc. I think I will smash it instead.”


  13. - Nosmo King - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:51 pm:

    “it breaks my heart, to see those stars, smashing a perfectly good guitar” — John Hiatt


  14. - Nosmo King - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:52 pm:

    Once again, Don Harmon is off target.


  15. - Empty Chair - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:54 pm:

    “Grd drmit Mike Madigan!” -Harmon


  16. - TooManyJens - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 12:58 pm:

    Damn it! Someone told me there was a constitutional pension bill hidden in this guitar!


  17. - zatoichi - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:01 pm:

    What? No lighter fluid and a match? No feedback?


  18. - Skeptic - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:03 pm:

    Who?


  19. - JoeVerdeal - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:03 pm:

    Would have been better if he had been wearing a toga outfit.


  20. - Skeptic - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:03 pm:

    Or maybe I should have phrased it as:

    “The …. who?”


  21. - TooManyJens - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:05 pm:

    “Wait till you see what I did to my hotel room!”


  22. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:21 pm:

    Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?


  23. - Phenomynous - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:29 pm:

    Another example of government waste in Illinois.


  24. - wordslinger - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:38 pm:

    “….cuz there ain’t no cure for the session-time blues.”


  25. - Spiney Norman - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:49 pm:

    After Rich sang the first chorus of “I Gave My Love a Cherry” Don (Bluto) Harmon lost his temper but quickly appologized.

  26. - Rebel13 - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 1:57 pm:

    Being a greeter at Target is much more difficult than Walmart!


  27. - The End Is Near - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 2:01 pm:

    Lt. Governor Sheila Simon: “Come near my banjo and I’ll cut you, Harmon.”


  28. - Oak Park Rob - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 2:16 pm:

    Just to be clear, the logo behind Sen Harmon is for School of Rock in Oak Park.


  29. - Arthur Andersen - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 2:52 pm:

    Sen. Don Harmon is pictured at the “General Assembly Talent Show” immediately after learning he placed second to Rep. Elaine Nekritz’ clarinet solo.


  30. - ericd1112 - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 3:05 pm:

    OP Rob, I guess this means that Sen. Harmon is tired of endlessly being compared to…wait for it…Sen. Rock.


  31. - Bill - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 3:44 pm:

    Talkin bout my generation


  32. - Savonarola - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 4:00 pm:

    And all this time I thought it was United Airlines that hated guitars.


  33. - Just The Way It Is One - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 4:11 pm:

    “Lousy, dag-nab, liberal guitar lovers! Take THAT!!! Yeah, and see ya at Woodstick, I I I mean WoodSTOCK–or, no, now they call it Looollapalooza or… whatEVer they call that hippie concert up in Chicago this summer…NOT!!!”


  34. - Jake from Elwood - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 4:57 pm:

    I always pictured Harmon as more of a synthesizer guy. Give the man a Devo hat.


  35. - fake county chairman - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 6:49 pm:

    senator h is starting a new trend to boost economies across the nation destroy everything you own an buy new


  36. - fake county chairman - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 6:52 pm:

    senator reaction when he found out there was no federal program cash for clunker guitars


  37. - WestSider - Wednesday, May 15, 13 @ 9:16 pm:

    Who’s Next?


  38. - Amy Renzulli - Monday, May 27, 13 @ 3:18 pm:

    See, pawn shops DO come in handy in Oak Park! Where else could I get a guitar to smash at the grand opening of the School of Rock?
