Question of the day

Thursday, Feb 13, 2014

    Hey Lou, where’d you get the purple tie?


  2. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:55 pm:

    Rep. Lang - Governor, seriously, get a hold of yourself,

    Gov. Quinn - Brownies. Cheetos. Brownies. Pink Floyd …


  3. - Anonymous - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:56 pm:

    So, Governor, how many “Rep. Lou Lang” hats do you wanna buy? How about the polos?


  4. - Norseman - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:56 pm:

    Lou, keep it to yourself, but I’m really looking forward to that first marijuana cigarette.


  5. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:56 pm:

    “Lou, your tie is talking to me…”


  6. - Norseman - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:58 pm:

    Lou, do you think Rauner would quit the race if I supported your gambling expansion and offered him one of the Chicago casinos?


  7. - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:58 pm:

    “Lou, is incompetence one of the conditions coverered in the new marijuana law?”


  8. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:59 pm:

    “Pat, you’re zoning. (Forceful whisper) PAT!”

    “Lou, the tile on the floor is turning into the deck of cards from Alice in Wonderland… “


  9. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:00 pm:

    According to Jaffe, slots at tracks is four-to-one against, but a Chicago-owned casino is a real long-shot Lou.


  10. - Juice - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:00 pm:

    So Pat, what if Fenwick got a casino?


  11. - Mittuns - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:02 pm:

    PQ: “Quiet, Lou. Squeezy and I are having a staring contest.”


  12. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:04 pm:

    Listen Lou - about that one night we double bunked…


  13. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:04 pm:

    At the Motel 8?


  14. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:04 pm:

    Yeah - I’m getting calls from the Sun-Times on it.


  15. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:05 pm:

    That wasn’t me. It was Rutherford.


  16. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:05 pm:

    Holy Crap!


  17. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:06 pm:

    I heard he had a thing for middle-aged bald guys.


  18. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    By the grace of Rosie’s doggie adoption - I shall be revenged!


  19. - Roadiepig - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 2:58 pm:

    “Lou, is incompetence one of the conditions coverered in the new marijuana law?”

  24. - The End Is Near - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:19 pm:

    “Governor, I hope you’re not suggesting that I had anything to do with the state’s financial mess. I’ve only been down here 27 years.”


  25. - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:20 pm:

    “Lou, could I use your ‘robber barons’ quote in my campaign?”


  26. - Bluefish - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:24 pm:

    I’ll have what he’s having.


  27. - Dirty Red - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:45 pm:

    And they stayed silent for another five minutes at which point Rep. Lang departed claiming he had better things to do (Hawks game started).


  28. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 3:48 pm:

    Gov. Pat Quinn winces after losing yet another staring contest, while Lang taunts his foe by continuing to stare at him for another twenty-five minutes.

  33. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 4:16 pm:

    Rep Lang: Now we have the Marijuana thing worked out, you can help me as the chair of the gaming to get some more casino’s
    Quinn “Where do you want the next casino”


  34. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 4:17 pm:

    The bar is high today!

    “Yes, Lou, Squeezy will let go of you, but we have a couple things to discuss first.”


  35. - The Captain - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 4:21 pm:

    “Lou, it’s a big election year, you think you can help me out with the budget?”

    “You bet.”


  36. - Anonymous - Thursday, Feb 13, 14 @ 4:25 pm:
