    “Shhh. We have ‘Det.’ Rich Miller… Looking for the elusive Treasurer Nominee Tom Cross…in his natural habitat…”


  2. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:22 am:

    Det. Miller: So Mr. Cross got…”angry at himself”… and threw Willy’s golf bag IN the pond…thinking it was his?


  3. - Stones - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:22 am:

    Another acronym for DET is Data Entry Terminal. Probably something you use pretty extensively in your line of work.


  4. - Enemy of the State - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:27 am:

    “As she walked across the room, Detective Miller frisked her with his eyes. He knew she had a Roscoe some place on her, maybe next to the real budget plan. But the curves under that little black dress really hid the paperwork.”

    Det. Rich Miller, on the trail of the Illinois Spaghetti Monster at the 19th Hole.

    “Time is a flat circle,” he says blankly, admiring a prodigious number of empty beer cans on the table. “Everything we’ve ever done, or will do, we’re gonna do over and over again.”


  6. - phocion - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:31 am:

    Any relation to Barney?


  7. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:37 am:

    “We didn’t exactly believe your story, Mr. Rauner; we believed your $53 million dollars you made last year…I mean, you made more than all of us the, to tell the truth, and enough more to make it all ‘right, exactly right,…”


  8. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:40 am:

    “Capital Fax bloggist and state politics journalist Rich Miller has a clever way of getting around his objectivity in order to support candidates. Detective, indeed!”


  9. - x ace - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:43 am:

    ” Cop Flashin Cash to Sponsor Golf Political Outing ? ” = “Statewide” Grand Jury Time ( Lisa may have to call in Roland to reinvent the …)


  10. - Casual Observer - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:55 am:

    Det. miller, who specializes in sniffing out leaks in state government, was disappointed to learn the leaks came from plumbing in the mansion. The only clue is a mysterious man lurking the grounds wearing a Carhartt and wielding a sledge hammer. May need to bring in Lt. drubbin and Insp. clouseau.


  11. - OneMan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:59 am:

    All though he had some success Rich never became as well known or beloved in law enforcement circles as his brother Barney


  12. - OneMan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 9:59 am:

    Also what is a golf clossic?


  13. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:00 am:

    “…and they would have gotten away with that Dopey campaign strategy too, if it wasn’t for Det. Miller and his meddling Blog…”


  14. - Norseman - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:02 am:

    Hastings campaign staff warn golfer that they detected Rich Miller walking around.


  15. - Wensicia - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:07 am:

    Capitol Fax Voicemail: Sorry, Detective Miller cannot answer your call as he’s on the case of the missing cannoli. Please leave a message…”

  17. - AFSCME Steward - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:16 am:

    Bridgeport Speak: if he doesn’t stop writing stuff about me I don’t like I’m gonna get det Miller.


  18. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:19 am:

    Sam Spade had the Maltese Falcon, Rich Miller had the Rauner Choking Rubber Chicken.


  19. - Nearly Normal - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:24 am:

    Check the Free Dictionary online for more meanings for the abbreviation DET–

    http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/DET

    My favorite is detainee. I am sure that the pols at times have wanted to see Rich detained and then refrained from his work!


  20. - Jake From Elwood - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:30 am:

    Remember the old CapFax logo where a cartoon Rich was peering under the Capitol Building he was holding up. All he was missing was a magnifying glass…


  21. - MrJM (@MisterJayEm) - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 10:35 am:

    The Capitol Fax business plan for avoiding legal liabilities under the new Eavesdropping Law.


  24. - Grandson of Man - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 11:10 am:

    “Also what is a golf clossic?”

    “Capital Fax”

    I made the dumb Capital Fax error (speaking of spelling/grammar errors). In the spirit of Rich, I owe myself a scolding: Bite Me.


  25. - AFSCME Steward - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 11:24 am:

    Det. Rich Miller’s latest case, “The Flying Prairie Chicken Caper”


  26. - Anon. - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 11:37 am:

    “Our sign erroneously identified Rich Miller as a detective in the town police farce. It should have said he is a defective in the town police force. We regret the error.”


  27. - John A Logan - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 12:01 pm:

    Just the Fax Ma’am.


  28. - Judgment Day - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 12:08 pm:

    Rich Miller is secretly a DETroit Tigers fan?

    Who Knew?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DET


  29. - Upon Further Review - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 12:35 pm:

    Stop using contractions!

    The sign was supposed to read “Detain Rich Miller.”


  30. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 1:19 pm:

    “Signs. Don’t. Golf.”


  31. - I B Strapped - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 3:03 pm:

    Det Rich Miller? Yeah, I would have no comment on any of our personnel at this time.

    “Well, yes, Rich Miller is a ‘Detective’ on our Lake Springfield Police Force, but beyond that we have no comment.”


  36. - Just The Way It Is One - Tuesday, Jun 17, 14 @ 7:09 pm:

    Mr. Hastings noted at the Event that, although he welcomes ANYone to support his Election bid that, nevertheless, he’s ALso truly just hoping that this particular Detective wasn’t the one rumored from the health department who snooped on poor, little 12 year-old Chloe in Downstate Troy, Illinois, innocently bakin’ her cupcakes, and the one resposible for putting her out of BUSiness for awhile when she was just trying to help people raise a few bucks for their charitable/fundraising causes…! If so, the Senator indicated he would have to decline Mr. Miller’s future sponsorship….
