    “I want you to ask Mr. Oberweis questions. Give him all the free press he wants, understand?”

    “Did you see the red Caddy with the legislative plates, and where it was parked? Did you?”

    “Did you see the black helicopter on the heliport?”

    “Now, will I be in Florida the Friday before the election?”

    “Do I believe Sen. Kirk is going to help my opponent?”

    “Are Bruce Rauner supporters supporting me?”

    God KNOWS I would love to help clean up this mess, but WHOMEVER left it, but, well, I am the SR Senator from Illinois, a highly ranked leader in the UNITED STATES Senate, and it is beneath me to get my hands dirty. I jsut wish there was something I could do!


  19. - LisleMike - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 11:54 am:

    “Its all the fault of Jim Edgar’s pension ramp up!”


  23. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:16 pm:

    “What has been the oddest governor request I have gotten? Well, an unnamed governor once called and asked what was the ‘Blue Book’ value of a US Senate seat…like that oddest?”


  24. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:21 pm:

    “Carol Mosely-Braun, Peter Fitzgerald, Barack Obama, Roland Burris, and Mark Kirk… You telling me I can’t work with people, look at that bunch and tell me I can’t roll with the punches…I can’t work with people, seriously?”


  25. - Cabildero - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:21 pm:

    Oh, I thought we were talking about Springfield, Missouri. Nevermind. By bad. Yeah, Illinois is pretty screwed up.


  26. - Formerpol - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:22 pm:

    It’s all George Bush’s fault. Can’t we still use that canard?


  27. - Befuddled - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:23 pm:

    Illinois Democrats’ re-election slogan:

    Watch how with just a slight upward motion of my right hand I can suspend TV microphones in mid air! For my next trick, you will all forget the past twelve years!

    Yes! I am the amazing Dick… Durbin!


  30. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:49 pm:

    “No, no! I voted for it, to find out what was IN it. Big difference. Would I vote for it, I doth know. Voting for it allowed me to find out what was IN it. Don’t twist my words. I voted FOR it, to find out what was IN it, ok?”


  31. - Steve - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    Dick Durbin: ” Thank you for complementing me and Senator Schumer for being a cute couple, as roommates it means a lot to us.”

  32. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 12:55 pm:

    “What?! Schumer said what?! Look, I gave Sen. Schumer the rent money Friday, ok? He is a terrible roommate. He eats all my avocados, never returns my CDs, and leaves the bathroom door closed after he was in there, no fan! So Schumer says I owe rent? Well, he owes me 5 avocados! (Pause)…can you strike all that, I forgot to leave the check…please?”


  33. - Rob Roy - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    DDDUUUUHHHH….Gee Tennessee


  34. - Sunshine - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    “Which one of you called me the ‘Fredo of the Senate’? You? It ain’t the way in the Senate. I handle things! I’m smart! Not like everybody says… like dumb… I’m smart and I want respect!”


  37. - wordslinger - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 1:13 pm:

    “I’m warning you, pal, get your hand off Monique, or you’ll be the first inmate at Thomson.”


  38. - 47th Ward - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 1:16 pm:

    Lynn Sweet is OK, but she’s no Rich Miller.


  39. - Steve - Friday, May 30, 14 @ 1:22 pm:
