    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:

  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.

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