    Seriously?

    Rauner’s attempt to pander to the Duck Dynasty crowd renders him virtually invisible to everyone else.

    Bruce Rauners, “The Facebook” page;

    “Hunting with my friends. (Not pictured, Rich Daley and Rahm Emanuel)”


  10. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 7:55 am:

    “Bruce! The dog … it’s fine. Just look here. It’s a picture, if you want, we can add other stuffed animals to make it look liked you hunt, but seriously, the dog is fine, just smile …”

  15. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 8:01 am:

    “Fine. ‘Props’, can you do something with the ears, Bruce thinks raising the ears a little makes the dog look…like a ‘hunter-er’ or something …so lift the ears please …”


  16. - anonymoose - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 8:01 am:

    If you ask me, the dog is real, the candidate makes a good decoy.

    “Howdy! What a sur-prise, sur-prise….fellow-common-folk-down-south-citizens, ya’ll shoulda seen the purty ducks ‘n geese fly out of the tall “soy bean” blind behind me!”


  17. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 8:05 am:

    “Bruce, (sigh) … the only stuffed animals that will fit into the stuff dog’s mouth are the weasel, a cartoonish rabbit, a golf club head cover we found of a Gofer with the initials ‘T’ and ‘C’ stitched on the back… and… a Meerkat that is missing an eye …No, you think about it Bruce, we have time…”


  18. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 8:08 am:

    “Mr. Rauner, sir, we have all been patient. The dog looks fine. We are not going to …’paint’ the dog black for a black Lab … we know its stuffed, but its just a prop … how about we take a couple with the dog, yes, with the ears up, nothing in the mouth and keep the dog this color … humor us…”


  19. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 8:11 am:

    “Please, Mr. Rauner … it’s stuffed … we can’t make it ’sit’ …the dog is stuffed standing. Yes, …I can see that point …yes, a sitting dog shows like you are the ‘Master’ or whatever you said … but THIS dog …is stuffed …standing …”

This isn’t ‘Animal Kingdom’, ok, the only deer we have in the semi is a ’standing deer’ …No! That makes no sense to have the deer standing with you and the dog …you have ‘hunted’, right?…”

  26. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 8:45 am:

    –What season is it? All I saw at the DNR site was early goose and dove.–

    Rabbit season! Duck season! Rabbit season! Duck season!

    Shhh — be vewwy, vewwy qwyitt. I’m hunting voters, hahahahahha.

    Reality has nothing to do with the Rauner campaign. Don’t you remember back in July, when it was 100 degrees all over the state, and he was wearing the Carhartt in his TV spots?

    Wasn’t his campaign announcement video set in Canada or Montana or something? Remember those big hills in the background?

    The dude is making himself up as he goes along. Apparently, the focus groups found that billionaire, pay-to-play LaSalle Street hedgie, North Shore friend of Rahm doesn’t resonate in a GOP primary.


  27. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 8:46 am:

    “Ok, I think we are ready …Mr. Rauner, stand there, next TO the dog, with the ears up, and you can hold ‘Rodent 615′ from the truck, … yep … just like that … put the shades… yes, on your face, not on the brim of the hat … great … yes! Right foot forward, look natural …No, do not look at the dog, look here sir … the dog is fine … hold the prop up higher, like you are proud you got it … yes … look here … the dog is not going to fall over, its anchored … no, Bruce, the dog looks steady, look here please … no, hold the Rodent higher like ‘Lookey-Lookey’ … tilt the hat just a bit back … I know we can’t SEE your eyes, but we want to see your face … Fix Mr. Rauner’s hat … ok… perfect … Bruce, seriously, look HERE … if you move your head, the hat will move … The. Dog. Does. Not. Need. A. Bandana! Bruce, I am going to take away the dog … I know you want the stuffed dog in the picture …. yes, even though its standing and not sitting, I get it … but the bandana might be too much …(pause) …Yes…Yes, I know you are paying for this … ‘Can somepone find me a bandana for the prop dog?’ … Seriously? ‘Do we have a “red” bandana for the dog?’ … only a black one Bruce … That’s ok? … Now! Now, we have the bandana on the stuffed dog, the sunglasses on, the right foot forward, you are smiling … yes, yes the Rodent in your hand … let’s make some magic …”

  29. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:05 am:

    –Peasant season! my favorite time of the year–

    LOL, reminds me of the scene below from “History of the World Part I.” About the 1:28 mark.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sztf4hcGrB4

    Appropriate, since I’m sure Farmer Bruce was at Citadel hedgie Griffin’s wedding at Versailles, regular guy that he is.

    Is he hunting Sunflower seeds?

  32. - anon - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:15 am:

    It’s dove season, and btw Bruce, it’s illegal to shoot dove over standing sunflowers…

    More proof that no matter what they do or what they wear or how the pose, a good old boy can become an intellectual but an intellectual cannot become a good old boy.


  34. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:26 am:

    Skeeter, did someone accuse Rauner of being an “intellectual?”


  35. - Skeeter - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:31 am:

    Wordslinger, that’s probably one of the more polite words for Rauner. I was thinking “pampered North Shore banker who believes that Kennilworth is living out in the country.”


  36. - zatoichi - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:34 am:

    We found this patch of weed as we stepped into the clearing. It is obviously pretty well attended. I did not know it could get this big.

  41. - Observing - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:48 am:

    Where’s the blaze orange cap and jacket that are almost universally required. Maybe he doesn’t plan to hunt with Dick Cheney.


  42. - door gunner - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:57 am:

  43. - John A Logan - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 9:57 am:

    Looks like Dove hunting to me. However I would encourage him to mow down the sun flowers with a bush hog. Everyone knows that doves prefer a dusty field and wont feed directly on the flower, they will only feed on the ground.


  44. - shore - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 10:03 am:

    the tags are still on the camo.


  45. - John A Logan - Wednesday, Sep 4, 13 @ 10:05 am:

    Just to clarify, it is not illegal to hunt doves over standing sun flowers. From the Illinois Department of Natural resources Pyramid State Park website.

    == Dove hunting hours are 12 noon - 5 p.m. Hunters must participate in a daily lottery at 11:00 am at the Galum Unit office September 1 - 5 to hunt over sunflower or wheat field. No dove hunting is allowed September 1 - 5 within 200 yards of a designated dove mangement field, except for hunters who are part of the hunter quota for that field.

    “Ramar of the Jungle” (after being fitted at his local tailor’s shop) goes out for the first time to hunt for snipe. His native bearer failed to show up to carry the picnic basket and champagne but (clever lad that he is) he found a dog to act as his porter.

    =It’s dove season, and btw Bruce, it’s illegal to shoot dove over standing sunflowers… =

    Adding to what John A. Logan mentioned……….You can indeed hunt over standing sunflowers, You can even mow them down (which works even better) and hunt over that. This can be a little confusing as people get them mixed up with waterfowl laws where you can’t do this sort of thing.

    Bruce Rauner puts forth his proposal for pension reform.

    “My proposal not just eliminates all pension costs,” said Rauner, as he held a dove representing State employees, “it generates revenue through hunting licenses, estate taxes, and a variety of other sources.”

    Ty Fahner of the Civic Committee of the Commercial Club of Chicago drooled in agreement.
