Question of the day

Thursday, Apr 10, 2014

* From WUIS

The Quinn campaign is criticizing Rauner for not doing enough to denounce Cellini, but when reporters asked him about it in the Capitol, Quinn said: “Well I don’t want to get into politics here.”

And then went on to talk for more than a minute, saying of Cellini, “he’s now a convicted felon and I certainly don’t want to have anything to do with him personally and I think anybody who aspires to this office should say clear of him, and make that crystal clear to the people of Illinois.”

But leading up to the 2006 election, then Lt. Gov Quinn stood by Blagojevich, even though media reports had catalogued many allegations of corruption.

A reporter asked Quinn why the Rauner/Cellini situation is any different from his support of Blagojevich.

Again, Quinn said “I’m not going to get into any politics.”

And this time, he meant it.

* The Bruce Rauner campaign sent along this Quinn quote…

Quinn on Blagojevich: “He’s always been a person who’s honest and one of integrity…I have confidence the governor does the right thing all the time.” (Daily Herald, 9/15/06)

* And this statement…

“Pat Quinn knew about Rod Blagojevich’s corrupt dealings and vouched for him anyway, calling Blago ‘honest’ and ‘ethical’ and someone who ‘always does the right thing,’” Rauner Campaign Spokesman Mike Schrimpf said. “This is the biggest lie yet from Quinnocchio.”

* And this photo…

Heh.

* The Question: Caption?

  20. - CircularFiringSquad - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    So Missteps about Blagoofian moments balances Mitt”Lead Feet” Rauner latest bungle on Cellini?
    Then we guess that fact that Mitt’s first record IL political drop was $25K to George Ryan has no bearing on shaking us up in the future.
    Pretty fun.
    Given’s Mitt’s habit of dancing near the file. Let’s start looking for moments he and Blagoof snuggled up to one another

    Sidebar.

    I always thought of Blago as “Carlo”…

    “Caption?”

    “Yeah, let’s talk business, Rod. First of all, you’re all done. The Mell Family don’t even have that kind of muscle anymore to get you outta the Fed’s crosshairs. Ald. Mell’s sick of you, right? You’re getting chased out of your house by the Press hounding you, and the other families on your block. What do you think is going on here? You think you can come to my seat after speaking and get support? I talked to Mell - I can make a deal with him, and still be the next Governor.”


  37. - Later - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 1:40 pm:

    Pat stick with me! I can get you a good job in the Kitchen. Maybe we could, even be cellies!

  41. - zatoichi - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 2:01 pm:

    PQ’s heart and lung locked up in a panic once he realized what he had stepped into by supporting Blago. With a quick Fist of Fury punch, Sensei Rod quickly revived the shaken PQ, who knew that now he had to support RB.

  48. - Hans Sanity - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 3:15 pm:

    In 2005, as Lt. Governor, Pat Quinn goosed Rod Blagojevich in front of the General Assembly and Illinois leadership.

    He was warned never to do it ever again.

    FPB-
    One day Samsung will make phone that will tranfer data like this (thud) just touch. I just transferred to you the power of BLA, the power to make taxpayer money disappear. You can use this great power to surreptitiously transfer a huge amounts of money - say, $50 million - to Democratic insiders without a shed of ethical concern. Save that one until just before an election.


  54. - AFSCME Steward - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 4:29 pm:

    Either you play ball with me or Betsy gets it.


  55. - AFSCME Steward - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 4:30 pm:

    Blago: Look, I know who you are. I’ll only say this once, Illinois ain’t ready for reform.

    47th — That was perfect.


  57. - The End Is Near - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 4:50 pm:

  58. - The End Is Near - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 4:57 pm:

    “The game is the game, Pat. You feel me?”


  59. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 5:05 pm:

    Bill really is a good guy once you get to know him, Pat. So I’ve heard anyways.


  60. - The End Is Near - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 5:15 pm:

    “Play ALL the tapes, Pat, then you’ll understand. Better yet, play all the tapes AND sync them up to the video from “The Wizard of Oz. It’s mind-blowing.”

    “Pat, DeLeo is a prankster, he calls at all hours pretending to be someone or another. If you don’t keep your wits about you, he’ll prank you like a blind upper cut…”


  62. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 5:59 pm:

    “You see how I did that Pat? ‘Wam!’, a stuff upper but to Madigan. You have to show ‘Mike’ who’s boss. Sure, did I want to be so rough, but I can’t Fire him. The thing is, Madigan never negotiated with a guy like me. Madigan will learn, or get another upper cut…”


  63. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 10, 14 @ 6:00 pm:
