  7. - Southwest Cook - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:03 am:

    I don’t care how much I pay… (Too much, Magic Bus!)


  8. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:03 am:

    “Sure, Rahm picks Chicago, and I have to get on a bus and wear a work coat …wait till we talk in Montana again.”


  9. - No Longer A Lurker - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:03 am:

    Hey Bruce, did Tom Bodett leave the lights on for you at the Motel 6 last night?


  10. - Almost the Weekend - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:04 am:

    “This used to be my Winnebago I would go camping with Rahm in Montana during the summers. That’s why there are Montana license plates.”


  11. - Senator Clay Davis - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:04 am:

    See these mismatched hubcaps? I got ‘em for 18 bucks!


  12. - PoolGuy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:04 am:

    this bus runs on the tears of lower minimum wage earners


  13. - The Captain - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:06 am:

    If that was my car I’d write “lower the gas tax” on the side of it too.


  14. - anonymoose - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:08 am:

    Ya know, was thinking of voting for the guy for a second there. But, too much chaos from Bruce “Ruiner” Rauner.

    My suggested caption….”The farce is strong in this one.”

    The photo makes me think, fittingly, of a dark, shadowed Sith Lord from Star Wars. I think “Ruiner” is the apprentice. I wonder who the Master Sith might be?


  15. - Bemused - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:08 am:

    That be the bus that ran over the other “3″.


  16. - Wensicia - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:09 am:

    “I don’t believe I was ticketed for double parking outside of the Tribune Tower yesterday!! One call to Rahm should fix this for me….”

    Is the jet ready?


  19. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:11 am:

    cut spending, cut taxes, cut pensions, cut salaries, cut minimum wage. protect the rich, I mean, uh, fiscal discipline…

    Cue Meatloaf’s “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad”


  22. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:18 am:

    A dark figure descended upon the Illinois Republican Gubernatorial Primary.


  27. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:26 am:

    What’s he mean by “reverse” Quinncome Tax Hike? He’s aware that when he takes office that the tax increase will no longer be in effect (assuming it’s allowed to expire), right?


  28. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:27 am:

    “Usually by this time, the lawyers are working to just hand the company to the Firm, I don’t get this …”

    Bruce..” Come on back on back just a little more… STOP! Dan my wife Diana says it only hurts a little”


  32. - For Whatever It's Worth - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:32 am:

    “I think my bus is more attractive than Willie’s Whiskey River bus!”


  33. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:33 am:

    “Strawberries …Frozen Strawberries … attack Ads are coming … Unions… Unions … Strawberries, frozen strwaberries … Attacks …Union attacks … PACS are coming, coming after me … Strawberries …”


  34. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:35 am:

    “Why not Montana, or Florida? Why did I choose Illinois? I got all these houses all over, and I choose, ‘Illinois’ … it’s 75 degrees in Miami, and I had to get my own coffee, not even an espresso …”


  35. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:38 am:

    “…’Sangerenelli’? No. ‘Sangetullini’? No. Think Bruce. Ok, Ev, I got that, but … ‘Santerfanucci’? What. Is. Her. Name?”


  36. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:39 am:

    “The bus company won’t let that ‘Ev’ on the bus without a deposit? I should have bought the bus, had ‘Sanguenerietti’ sign the silly waiver and been done with this Dopey tour.”


  37. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:41 am:

    Who knows what evil lucks in the hearts of the other candidates? And, hey, even if it doesn’t we can always use innuendo and third party ads!


  38. - Cook County Commoner - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:05 am:

    Wait till they see the fleet that hits the road after I win the primary. LED imaging, rolling wifi to catch the mobile devices, donations at the food pantries.


  39. - MrJM - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:07 am:

    And I suppose that bus was also payed for by a sketchy Ohio not-for-profit with absolutely no coordination with the Rauner campaign whatsoever…

    – MrJM


  40. - Samurai - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:12 am:

    I can’t wait to get my name on all the toll booth plazas across the State.


  41. - Bemused - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:22 am:

    As the morning sun rises over the vast waste of the southland. Beside the bus stands a dark man with a dark purpose.


  42. - I'm Strapped - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:27 am:

    No, actually the bus is solar powered.


  43. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:31 am:

    Greyhound starts using ads to help the bottom line.


  44. - John Lennon - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:36 am:

    A soon as the bus starts. Our song plays. It’s certainly been a mystery.

  45. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:42 am:

    We sign Zepplin for the summer reunion tour,… they use this bus,..this sign…we make some serious coin …. POTUS?.. It could happen!


  46. - Marie - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:50 am:

    Cut spending - Rauner “I’m going to give back all the $ I made off the pension plans” Reverse Tax Hike - Rauner “I’m going to give back all the $ I made off the pension plans” Pass Term limits “Rauner “no more career politicians - see what I have because I’m not a career politician - I just make money off the pensions and my connections.”


  47. - Roadiepig - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 10:59 am:

    PoolGuy at 9:12 for the win!


  48. - Jake From Elwood - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:01 am:

    Rauner doesn’t do Greyhound.


  49. - Roadiepig - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:02 am:

    That loud “beep beep” sound? That’s the Baron backing all over the Republican parties chances to win up and down the ballot this November


  50. - Chunga's Revenge - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:04 am:

    The first generation of the Death Star. The evil Carhartt Empire it’s about the strike!!!


  51. - Commonsense in Illinois - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:07 am:

    Note to self…hire more staff. This “it’s your turn to wash the Beast, Bruce” just doesn’t get it…

  55. - Joe M - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:41 am:

    Anything can lead to mudslinging in this campaign.

    Reporter: Nice bus Bruce.

    Rauner: I want you to know that one of my opponents used to drive a VW bus, had long hair, smoked dope, and went to rock festivals.

    Reporter: Which opponent?

    Rauner: I’m not at liberty to say.

    Reporter: Why not Bruce, is it because you made that up?

    Rauner: I’m not at liberty to say. The facts speak for themselves.


  56. - walker - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:42 am:

    “Bruce? He’s over there. I’m just a roadie.”


  57. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:55 am:

    He saw his shadow. Six more weeks of TV commercials.


  58. - crazybleedingheart - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 11:57 am:

    HAHAHAHA

    - Casual Observer - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:27 am:

  59. - Stones - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 12:09 pm:

    Hitchcock?


  60. - roscoe tom - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 12:19 pm:

    Key Question! How many bathrooms or thrones does the rig have?


  61. - Siriusly - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 12:20 pm:

    If you look closely you can almost see where this candidate stands.


  62. - veritas - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 12:29 pm:

    When I asked you for $5 or $10 to put gas in the Old Ford - I forgot I had a bus. Heck, I can’t even remember when I bought that penthouse in Chicago.


  63. - One day at a time - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 1:38 pm:

    (@F*#, where is my *#@&(@ Limo???


  64. - Precinct Captain - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 4:19 pm:

    Billionaire Bruce Rauner stands outside of his campaign bus.

    In other gubernatorial campaign news, Reduction Man promises massive cuts to state spending while Bust ‘Em Up Man promises to bust unions in Illinois. Neither one is the governor Illinois deserves nor the one it needs right now.


  65. - Third Reading - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 4:37 pm:

    Weird Al Yankovic has this one covered:

    “Another One Rides the Bus”

    “Magic Bruce” - good one Willy!


  67. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 5:30 pm:

    - Mama -,

    I thank you.

    “Caption?”

    “Great, who hired the Teamster to drive my bus?”


  68. - Just The Way It Is One - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 5:33 pm:

    “No, DON’T be deceived, my young Radio Show Listeners, for when it comes to THIS one’s shadow, ‘the SHADOW don’t KNOOOOOOOOOOOW!!! Ha–ha ha ha ha ha!”


  69. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 6:21 pm:

    Contrary to what others may think, I could so easily and totally bug out in that thing. (The next great adventure awaits. ;) )


  70. - Empty Suit - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 7:15 pm:

    Campaign bus $500,000, Carhart coat $85, cheap watch $18, throwing Dan Rutherford under the campaign bus..priceless!


  71. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Feb 4, 14 @ 9:49 pm:

    Third, Willy, and Empty-well done! Weird Al, well played.


  72. - Sorry State - Wednesday, Feb 5, 14 @ 3:31 am:
