  93. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Apr 9, 14 @ 8:24 pm:

    What the (bleep) am i supposed to do, go out there and let my freaking staffers get destroyed out there and be quiet about it? For the nickel and dime people who turn up on that blog? The (bleepers) don’t even work. That’s why they’re on the freaking blog all day. They ought to go out and get a freaking job and find out what it’s like to earn a freaking living.

    98% of Illinoisans are out working, the other 2% come out here and leave comments on Capitol Fax. It’s a (bleeping) playground for the (bleepers).


  94. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 9, 14 @ 8:37 pm:

    I miss Lee Elia! Good stuff there…

    Rauner says he reads the comments, lol

  96. - Quizzical - Wednesday, Apr 9, 14 @ 9:18 pm:

    I’ll commit to two things. I’ll take on the powerful special interests and I’ll run government like a business. Nothing more. All of you corrupt insiders who care about “issues” are going to have to wait until January to find out more.


  97. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Apr 9, 14 @ 10:28 pm:

    Apropos of nothing, I got on a wild tangent yesterday ruminating about my best baseball memories.

    JHC almighty, what great memories. As I wandered around the back of my head, it led me to Steve Goodman. Led me back to John Prine.

    One of these days, someone is going to have to get on a lift and carve “Prine” in the granite of that state library in Springfield.

    What a poet, the man from Maywood.

    “I got kicked off of Noah’s Ark. I turned my cheek to an unkind remark. There was two of everything and one of me.”

    “Make me an angel, flies from Montgomery. Make me a poster, of an old rodeo. Just give me one thing, that I can hold onto. To believe in this kind of living is a hard way to go.”

    “Woke up this morning. Put on my slippers. Walked in the kitchen and died. And, oh, what a feeling, as my soul went through the ceiling, and on up to heaven I did rise.”

    “All the static in my attic getting ready to blow.”

    C’mon, man. Amazing writer!


  98. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Apr 9, 14 @ 10:41 pm:

    Every two words, I drop the “g,” like, “I’m a runnin’ fer guvner.”


  99. - Toure's Latte - Wednesday, Apr 9, 14 @ 10:48 pm:

    I have decided I will limit my expenditures in this race to no more than two billion dollars.


  100. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Apr 9, 14 @ 10:48 pm:

    “If dreams were thunder. And lightning was desire. This old house would have burned down a long time ago.”

    To borrow from another great writer, ain’t no sin being glad you’re alive when you can pick up what they’re putting down.


  101. - Luv - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 7:34 am:

    Victory.


  102. - Frosty-The Snowman - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 8:30 am:

    Two votes!—I am assured of “at leas”t two votes on November 4th according to my wife (who was originally in question). Next question, please.
