* Gov. Pat Quinn spoke at a Springfield business group event today. From a reader…

Outside Abraham Lincoln hotel in Springfield. If this is a Rauner thing, they need to get higher quality signs! God knows they can afford it.

* The pic…

That’s not a great Blagojevich mask, either.

    If someone develops better Blago masks, put me down for one….


  2. - The Captain - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    Ronald Reagan looks more rubbery than usual.


  3. - itsmyopinion - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 12:53 pm:

    Maybe this guy’s head just isn’t big enough to properly fill up the Blago mask.


  4. - Anonymous - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 12:53 pm:

    Maybe that’s actually Rod. Although I suspect his hair is much greyer by now.

    RAUNER CAMPAIGN APPROVED AS FEDERAL ‘WORK RELEASE JOB PROVIDER’

    “Stu Levine was one of my references”


  6. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 12:56 pm:

    Who is he supposed to be?
    I can’t keep track of all our convicted governors.


  7. - Norseman - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 12:57 pm:

    Who would have thought that Illinois politics would be laced with fantasy figures - Squeezy, children’s characters - Pinnochio, and caricatures of our crooked governors.

    This is entertaining. Although, I do recommend a little more effort into the signage and costume. Common Man, you’re a .01%ter. You can afford a quality attire.


  8. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 12:57 pm:

    Nice spelling of subpoena.


  9. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 12:59 pm:

    Looks more like Charles Bronson than Rod Blagojevich.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:01 pm:

    “Really, it’s like ‘department store Santas’, however we know the real Blago is in Colorado, marking those tapes, checking them twice…”


  11. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:06 pm:

    Before making that sign, a postcard was sent, nothing on it, to Red, postmarked from Zihuataneio…


  12. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:07 pm:

    I think he is having problems with a small species of peonies.

    My English speaking gardener can help you with those subpeonas!


  13. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:07 pm:

    Release was granted to Blago after beating the guards in a tackle football game he played Quarterback in…


  14. - Dirty Red - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:07 pm:

    “AND Kathleen wouldn’t serve me.”


  15. - Formerly Known As... - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    “Pat, you never call or visit any more. I miss our time together.”

    Quick turnaround time on the subpoena issue, less than 24 hours. The masks and signs are likely to be higher quality in a few days.

    The combo of Quinnochio and orange jumpsuit Blago shadowing Quinn at events will make for some strong visuals.


  16. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    That can’t really be Rod because his orange jumpsuits have the gubernatorial seal on them. Ryan ordered new ones when the old ones Kerner and Walker used wore out. Besides, George went commando in them and you know how much Rod and Tony Rezko hated sharing undies!


  17. - Chris - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:11 pm:

    Rod’s got 99 problems, but Pat Quinn ain’t one.


  18. - Anonymous - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:11 pm:

    What’s a “problems zoo”?


  19. - Shark Sandwich - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:13 pm:

    Hey, is that Mayor Daley!????


  20. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:13 pm:

    I’m getting confused here.
    Just how many men wearing orange jumpsuits representing our past, current and future governors can we have at these political rallies?

    I could have already seen this driving out of Joliet yesterday. I thought they were picking up litter. Maybe that was a political rally?


  21. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:15 pm:

    Oh, that’s a “sans serif” letter “t”

    Good choice, BTW, that font says, “I’m sad, but determined”.

    Powerful font.

    “Caption?”

    “I only had enough money for a new hairbrush. The sign and marker were actually a gift …”


  22. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:16 pm:

    - Shark Sandwich -…

    For the win…


  23. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:16 pm:

    I heard he can’t use his patio to water those subpeonas anyway. Judge’s order.

    And he needs to wear an oxygen tank.


  24. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:26 pm:

    Is this a little like criminals going back to the scene of the crime, thingy?


  25. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:33 pm:

    What that sign says to me is; What we got here is… failure to communicate…


  26. - Jake From Elwood - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:36 pm:

    Hmm…I thought this was an actor from “Escape from the Planet of the Apes”


  27. - Precinct Captain - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:48 pm:

    “Just like Rauner, Blago’s only a flight risk from responsibility”


  28. - Bored Chairman - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:55 pm:

    OW is on a tear. #cracking up!


  29. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:55 pm:

    “Hey…hey…HEY! They have a cream for that ‘Subpeona’ now. No more shots!”


  30. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 1:58 pm:

    Thanks - Bored Chairman -,

    Blago would have gotten into the meeting, but after the 3 rd attempt through the metal detector, amazingly enough, it was noticed the ankle cuffs were setting off the machine.


  31. - I B Strapped - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 2:13 pm:

    Look, why rip on me, obviously this is a very low budget operation!


  32. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 2:15 pm:

    “My English is not so good. I’m the One Kid They Left Behind.”


  33. - Stones - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 2:17 pm:

    Amateurish.


  34. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 2:23 pm:

    What I looked like after a month in a GTCR owned nursing home.


  35. - Walker - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 2:56 pm:

    Now I own another bankrupt liability. That’s what they told me if I held this sign.


  36. - Upon Further Review - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    Pretty poor mask. It could be one of about a dozen persons.


  37. - Soccermom - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    Shark, well done.


  38. - Tsavo - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 3:09 pm:

    I love work release days when my only job is holding up signs.


  39. - Tsavo - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 3:10 pm:

    Anybody got a “shank” they want to trade for a U.S.Senate appointment.


  40. - Arthur Andersen - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 3:22 pm:

    I held up this dumb sign and all I got was “The Bird” from some guy driving by who had AA on his license plates.


  41. - A. Nonymous - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 3:35 pm:

    Is that Barickman?

    What’s a “problem zoo”?


  42. - zatoichi - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 3:53 pm:

    What me worry?


  43. - AFSCME Steward - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 4:24 pm:

    A guy with problems. Not only does he have an ugly rubber face, now his subpeona is acting up.


  44. - Norseman - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 4:56 pm:

    Last week, all I had to wear was a hat and silly nose.

  47. - JoeInPeoria - Wednesday, May 7, 14 @ 9:49 pm:

    I bought a Blago rubber mask at a Chicago costume shop on North Milwaukee Ave.


  48. - 21st State - Thursday, May 8, 14 @ 1:14 am:

    it’s May, people!


  49. - wound care centers Chicago - Thursday, May 8, 14 @ 10:44 am:

    Conditions for the home health care service should be constantly improving as well.
    Freelance opportunities may be more forthcoming so far as medical
    transcription jobs are concerned as compared to other healthcare fields.
    Thankfully, a bit of gentle soap could banish the odor for good.
