* Ormsby

Governor Pat Quinn yesterday appointed a new communications director.

Quinn on Sunday announced that Grant Klinzman will immediately assume the role of Acting Communications Director for the Governor’s Office.

Klinzman has been serving as Deputy Communications Director. The Governor’s chief spokesman and Communications Director, Brooke Anderson, is leaving the Governor’s Office to join the Quinn for Illinois campaign.

* From Grant’s Facebook page

He almost looks like he’s being renditioned by the CIA.

Have fun and let’s welcome him the right way.

    Pat Quinn: where have you been working the last few years?

    Klinzman: So I jump ship in Hong Kong and I make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas.

    Pat Quinn: A looper?

    Klinzman: A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I’m a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald… striking. So, I’m on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga… gunga, gunga-lagunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he’s gonna stiff me. And I say, “Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know.” And he says, “Oh, uh, there won’t be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.” So I got that goin’ for me, which is nice.

    Pat Quinn: well I guess you’re hired…

    A communications director actually posted this on his own Facebook page? Really? And Quinn thinks he is qualified to ……..?

  55. - Upon Further Review - Monday, Jun 2, 14 @ 11:08 am:

    Bill Murray revisited one of the two Illinoia golf courses that provided some inspiration for his brother Brian Doyle Murray’s “Caddyshack” script last summer — the public course Canal Shores in Evanston/Wilmette where Murray once worked (Indian Hill Country Club was another such place where the Murray brothers also worked). Ground hogs used to live in the canal banks behind the snack bar where Bill Murray ran the concession. Harold Ramis once mentioned that he first met Bill when he was selling hot dogs at the refreshment stand in Wilmette in an interview about the making of the movie. One other Ramis comment was that it pained him to see how poorly several of the actors played golf. Ramis said that only Michael O’Keefe had a good swing.

    Joel Murray is holding a celebrity golf outing fundraising event at Canal Shores during August.

    Consider the scene in which Danny Noonan dreads working in the lumberyard. Bill Murray’s father was a lumber salesman.

    - URF -,

    That screenplay is epic. Lots of Ad Lib, but true to the visions of Ramis and the Murrays. Ramis and Murray had a terrible falling out, but it was being repaired before Ramis’ death. Good backstory there, thanks for adding your Caddyshack tidbits too.

    Bill can still “play”, think he won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am once.

    “Caption?”

    @Oswego Willy:

    I was amazed to learn that Billy Murray worked only six days on his portion of “Caddyshack.” Harold Ramis was big on allowing for improvisation and Murray was on such a roll that Ramis kept the cameras running when he was out front. It wound up changing the storyline as Murray and Chevy Chase got more screen time and the caddies became extras. The scene with Murray and Chase had to be especially created because it was not in the original script.

    I have seen Joel Murray play golf and he is a scratch player.

    What Harold Ramis said is true about some of the golf swings in the movie: there are a lot of cuts where the actual golf shots would have been grounded or sliced.

    Dear Governor Quinn, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in the Precincts to get you re-elected. But we think you’re crazy to make us do a Press Release telling everyone who we think you are. The Press sees your Communications Crew as they want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…and an athlete…and a basket case …a princess…and a criminal…

    Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Manny’s Deli Club.

    Giving you everything inside and out and
    It’s strange so real in the dark
    Think of the tender things that Quinn’s been working on

    Slow change may pull “I” “L” apart
    When the light gets into your heart, baby

    Don’t You Forget About Grant
    Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
    Don’t You Forget About Grant

    Look my way, never love me
    “Qs” keeps falling, questions falling
    Down, down, down

    Will you recognise “Grant”?
    Call my name or walk on by
    “Qs” keeps falling, questions falling
    Down, down, down, down

    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Ohhhh…..

    Don’t you try to pretend
    It’s my feeling Quinn wins in the end
    I won’t harm Bruce or touch his pretendness
    “Vanity and security”

    Don’t you forget about “Grant”
    I won’t be alone, talking you know it baby
    Going to take Bruce apart
    I’ll put Quinn back together at heart, baby

    Don’t You Forget About Grant
    Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
    Don’t You Forget About Grant

    As you walk on by
    Will you call “Grant’s” name?
    As you walk on by
    Will you call “Grant’s” name?
    When you walk away

    Or will you walk away?
    Will you walk on by?
    Come on - call “Grant’s” name
    Will you call “Grant’s” name?

    I say:
    La la la…
