    State Treasurer candidate Mike Frerichs released the first in a series of “photoshop endorsements.” He promised other prominent Illinois Democrats that they would not need to actually meet with him after providing an endorsement and encouraged Comptroller candidate Sheila Simon to develop a similar program.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:34 am:

    “So Mike, when are you offically going to announce?”


  16. - tominchicago - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:34 am:

  24. - Dozer - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:41 am:

    I assume he’s making fun of himself standing next to Frerichs….for his sake I hope he doesn’t expect people to believe he’s that tall


  25. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:41 am:

    Rahm Emanuel wears Shrinking Violet colored tie to meet Sen. Mike Frerichs for a photo shoot…


  26. - Grandson of Man - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:43 am:

    “Look, I know you’re Mayor Emanuel and not my prospective predecessor, Dan Rutherford, but I kind of like where your hand is right now.”


  27. - Upon Further Review - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:43 am:

    Rahm is that your hand in my pocket? I… I cannot feel my wallet… Rahm?


  28. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:44 am:

    Knome Sane made me spit out my coffee. Hilarious.

    The Golem and the Goniff.


  30. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:46 am:

    “Boy, you make a couple Dopey statements, some silly tweets, a few press releases that glom onto things, and of all things to be effective, never would have expected it to be your height…”


  31. - phocion - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:46 am:

    Even on his tippy toes, standing on a step ladder, the Mayor doesn’t quite match the freakishly tall legislator-candidate.


  32. - Wensicia - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:46 am:

    Frerichs: “I was told all pics with Rahm required you to pose next to him on your knees.”


  33. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:46 am:

    “You got your #%$@in’ picture. Now put me down!”

    The Mayor greets Frerichs while standing on a pile of Chicago’s unplowed side street snow.


  35. - Stones - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:54 am:

    “I didn’t know you shopped at Brooks Bros too?”


  36. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:54 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Mayor Emanuel said he heard of me and took this picture too. Being a statewide candidate rocks! #BigKidTable

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Mayor Emanuel just gave the # to the secretary of the Aide, who is the assistant to the Mayor’s assistant. I am Big Time! #RahmCalledMeRube #Besties


  37. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 9:57 am:

    Rahm, “This is the Guy I want writing the checks to me” “I mean to the State of Chicago” errr I mean to “The State of Illinois”

  39. - Downstater - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:00 am:

    Hey,did you hear there may be big news about the Rutherford campaign on Monday?


  40. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:01 am:

    Unknown as to the timing, but picture was taken the date the scarecrow visited the Wizard for a brain. The outcome of the meeting is still unknown.


  41. - zatoichi - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:05 am:

    Mike, my man, image sets the scene..That suit…1993? The tie…high school prom? The hair…Floby? Let me make some calls.


  42. - Bluefish - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:13 am:

    Hi, I’m Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel for the Oswego Stepladder Company.


  43. - Steve - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:14 am:

    “Mike you understand why I have a complex, it leads me to want to boss people around but at least I’m good at making money , my personality overcame my lack of math skills to allow me to become an investment banker without an MBA.”


  44. - LincolnLounger - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:15 am:

    One of these men is a stunningly ambitious, ruthless, and vicious politician who will let nothing get in his way. The other is the Mayor of Chicago.


  45. - Upon Further Review - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:21 am:

    @Oswego Willy: Excellent.

    In a case of role reversal, imagine Emanuel applying for a heart while in Oz.


  46. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:26 am:

    - Upon Further Review -,

    This help?

    While in Oz, Rahm looks for a heart and Frerichs looks for a brain.

    Not pictured, Pat Quinn looking for courage, and Sheila Simon looking for the best way to get home after this nightmare of a campaign season…

    “Say hello to my little friend.”


  48. - A guy... - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:32 am:

    And this photo op concludes the definition of my support for you. Next!


  49. - ILPundit - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:33 am:

    Rahm: Mike, you don’t have to beg, you have my endorsement. Now, stand up.


  50. - The End Is Near - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:33 am:

    “Mike, I told you that you’d be surprised by the color and detail in the photos taken by these Redflex speed cameras, which, as you know, I’ve installed for the benefit of the children.”


  51. - 47th Ward - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:45 am:

    Rahm Emanuel proves that white men can jump.


  52. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 10:47 am:

    Ken_in_Aurora for the lead! I literally laughed out loud. Thanks. :)


  53. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:01 am:

    Ken in Aurora wins.

    Did you know that the same actor portrayed Michael Corleone and Tony Montana? Hard to believe. Different characters, of course, but totally different styles of acting.


  54. - dupage dan - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:01 am:

    Yes, Mike, those are fish in my see-thru platform shoes. Dead fish.


  55. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:08 am:

    Playing for second today. Very high bar to clear.

    Well done.

    Pacino is total method actor.

    Ever heard of Lee Strasberg? I think he is now “a retired businessman, living on a modest pension …”

    Pacino, Dustin Hoffman …Daniel Day-Lewis might take it too far …

    Well done - Ken_In_Aurora -,

    “Caption?”

  57. - The End Is Near - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:15 am:

    “Mike, did you ever work with the former deputy state treasurer in Ohio?”

  60. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:25 am:

    RAHM - You’re melting!

    Mike, some people are worth melting for!


  61. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:28 am:

    “Thank you for everything. And by everything, of course, I mean nothing. Toodle pip and cheerio, Mr. Frerichs.”


  62. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:29 am:

    “WOW - He’s really smooth. Sometimes I stare at him, and imagine a little chick popping out. Peep-peep-peep.”

  66. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:33 am:

    Senator, ya can’t just let it be, can ya….

    (Sigh)

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - I hope others are kind to me, or don’t say things that aren’t true, or even misrepresent my record. I do that all by myself! #PleadingForMercyRarelyGoesWell


  67. - Jimmy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:34 am:

    You can get off your knees now Mike.


  68. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:35 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - If mercy is about letting things lay and not ginning up things, I would not be the best to ask #EnoughAboutMeLetMeTellYouAboutMe


  69. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:38 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - I plan a third or 4th rollout of the campaign so please pay attention, just not too close. Thanks! #MightEvenFactCheckWithWholeYearToDoIt


  70. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:40 am:

    “Say my name.”


  71. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:41 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - I asked Mayor Emanuel to vote for me in the Primary. Mayor said I was unopposed like the rest of the ticket, so he might go GOP #Hmmm


  72. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:42 am:

    “Standing next to the Mayor, I’d say he’s almost five foot tall.”


  73. - SonofSuperAbe2014 - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:43 am:

    Better to stand w/ Rahm then stand by my record.


  74. - Almost the Weekend - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:46 am:

    =Frerichs pleads for kindness on Twitter: https://twitter.com/MikeforIllinois/status/431838365369896960=

    Not surprised he tweeted this. I wonder if he tweeted the CapFax blog post about his botched campaign video announcement.


  75. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:47 am:

    - SonofSuperAbe2014 -, lol

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Mayor Emanuel gave me some advice; “Say only what needs to be said”. Does that mean, say more or say less Dopey chatter? #IfYouHaveToAsk


  76. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:50 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Political Insiders are mocking me. If you stand with me, like Mayor Emanuel has, we will make Illinois better #GinUpAnything #PlayTheVictim ##LookAKitty


  77. - VanillaMan - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:52 am:

    “Son, I fought a Minotaur to be here.”


  78. - Ghost - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:53 am:

    Frerichs: “What? Over? Did you say ‘over’? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!”

    “Seven [months] of [campaigning] down the drain. Might as well join the f***ing Peace Corps.”

    Emanuel: “We have an old saying in [Chicago]; don’t get mad, get even.”


  79. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:54 am:

    Speaking of the tweeter, AA has responded to the request…


  80. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:54 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Someone asks if I tweeted the botched announcement @Capitolfax post. I stand by the announcement, except for all the missing facts. #OtherThanThat #TreasurerNotAboutDetailsAnyway


  81. - Gabe - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:54 am:

    Freirichsmust be standing in a pothole.


  82. - Almost the Weekend - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:55 am:

    Need to get a photo of Rauner and Frerichs together. I think OW and his fake twitter handles and comments might overload the website for a couple hours.


  83. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:56 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - If you can pass his # and his resume, I would appreciate that before a 4th or 5th rollout. #NothingToSee #AllIsWell


  84. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:58 am:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - I was confused. Mayor Emanuel said he was glad to finally meet the “Fredo” of the ILDem ticket. Whaaaa? #ThereIsSomethingInItForMe


  85. - GollyGeeI'mTall - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 11:59 am:

    FYI…. Rahm is that tall, he is standing on a stack of bricks from one of those many schools he tore down.


  86. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:01 pm:

    @FakeMayorEmanuel - Was glad to meet the “amateur” in the pro game of stsatewide politics. Gave him a Chicago pen and pin too after a tour of City Hall. #SeenAsTheCampaignIsSeen


  87. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:04 pm:

    @FakeMayorEmanuel - the last tall candidate I remember was Jason Plummer. Something must be in the air that high. #ThinAirThinThoughts


  88. - Empty Suit - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:16 pm:

    Uh can you say Play School Stool?


  89. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:26 pm:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Mayor Emanuel has the best Candy in the dish on his desk. Yum #BigKidTableBonuses

    @FakeMayorEmanuel - The Kid from downstate I took that picture with took all my “guest” candy. That. Is. @#$%&…! #YourRunningForOfficeActLikeIt


  90. - cicero - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:31 pm:

    Mike, have you met my close friend, Bruce?


  91. - Anonymous - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:36 pm:

    Rahm: “wallet, wallet…..where’s his wallet….”


  92. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:47 pm:

    @FakeMayorEmanuel - After picture, gave @FakeMikeFrerichs some advice; How about you SIT and figure out what you are doing? #OstrichWithHIsHeadCutOff #SpotlightHogForNoReasons #NoThoughtBeforeLeaps


  93. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:49 pm:

    @FakeMayorEmanuel - Told I was taking picture with IL’s biggest gadfly; then @FakeMikeFrerichs walked in. Saw the video, now it makes sense #MakeAnyIssueHis #SpinningRecordMakesMessNotHay


  94. - Upon Further Review - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 12:54 pm:

    “You know, Mike, I have not smiled so much since Bruce Rauner put $16 million into my hands as a novice investment banker. What are you going to give to me to top that?”


  95. - John Boch - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 1:05 pm:

    Careful Rahm. We don’t want you to fall off that step stool.


  96. - surayabay - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 1:11 pm:

    I see you’ve mastered the art of swearing under your breath at the Press without moving your lips too, nice!

  98. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 1:47 pm:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Told Mayor Emanuel I loved his old twitter handle. He said two words to me I ddidn’t think could be used together #MockingTwitter #TwitterCutsBothWays


  99. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 1:48 pm:

    @FakeMikeFrerichs - Mayor Emanuel siad he was glad I seem to keep the tradition of tweeting like Rutherford, then he laughed real, real looud #OverexposedOverdone #BrandingAlsoBurnsHides


  100. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 1:51 pm:

    @FakeMayorEmanuel - I tried to give the downstate kid some advice, but all he kept doing was looknig at his phone, playing on Facebook and Twitter #SocialMediaBeingUnsocial #LearningTakesListening

    Sen. Frerichs, got anything else you want us to do? Maybe the “blessing and Curse” is not about the Caption Contest, but more about those IN the pictures?

    We are at 100 …


  101. - SonofSuperAbe2014 - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 1:55 pm:

    Psst, Hey Mike, if you really want to win use my buddy Dan Proft. His band of crazies will make sure that the democrats will always win. Viva le Keyes.


  102. - Dean Schwartz - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 2:55 pm:

    GollyGeeI’mTall - or standing on the backs of Chicago teachers


  103. - Henry Clay - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 3:31 pm:

    Rahm:—Unfortunately, Bruce was unable to make it today in time for our photo shoot. His Carhartts weren’t back from the cleaners yet.


  104. - A guy... - Friday, Feb 7, 14 @ 4:00 pm:

    Go get a fraud examiner certificate and a new set of Calloways. That way you’ll be ready either way.
