* I get e-mails…

Rich,

As a political reporter, I think you and your CAPITOLFAX readers would be shocked to find out what’s underneath this shroud

The “shroud”…

* The attached press release…

Please join us at the Capitol building on Monday…information below.

Libertarian Party of Illinois Delivers Food, Facts, and Photos

June 20, 2014, Lemont, IL – The Libertarian Party of Illinois will hold a brief yet informative press conference at the Illinois State Capitol Building on June 23rd offering a plateful of candidates, a full take-away lunch for all reporters, and a hefty photo-op that will impress readers. Hint: the photo-op weighs in at over 20 pounds and represents at least 40,000 Illinois voters. Be on hand for a unique and photogenic display that doesn’t focus on politicians standing around in suits, although we’ll have many of our candidates on hand for one-on-one interviews after the short presentation if you like.

    • Date: Monday June 23rd
    • Time: 1:00 p.m.
    • Location: Illinois Capitol Building, Room 010 (basement press office)
    • Bring your press credentials, your appetite, and a camera (optional).

It’s Friday, so let’s keep it light and snarky…

* The Question: Should I go? Take the poll and then explain your answer in comments, please.

I will abide by the poll’s results.

    Perhaps there will even be beer…


  2. - Norseman - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:21 am:

    Free food is free food.


  3. - Mason born - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:23 am:

    One Question Rich.

    Any idea who the caterer is?? Free Food is Free Food but if it is crappy Shop and Save chicken skip.


  4. - Yellow Dog Democrat - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:24 am:

    I heard they are unveiling the missing apostrophe from T’ Rump tower, so named because the planning commission rejected designer’s original but honest “World’s Biggest Horse’s Rear” sign for the tower.


  5. - Goooner - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:25 am:

    After listening to libertarians rant for an hour, you really think you will be able to keep a meal down?

    I’m just not seeing an upside here.


  6. - CD - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:27 am:

    The spirit of Tony Mann will haunt you if you take the free food. What the heck is a “full take-away lunch” anyway? Go and find that part out, then you can leave.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:30 am:

    If they have Pie…or Cannoli…

    Voted “no”, but could be a “yes” if it wasn’t so gimmicky.


  8. - wordslinger - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:30 am:

    –Free Food is Free Food –

    Chicken a la Squeezy?

    Don’t go. No encouragement should be given to the dumbing-down represented by the recent rash of stupid props and mascots, or whatever Quinnochhio is supposed to be.


  9. - Anon - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:30 am:

    “the photo-op weighs in at over 20 pounds”

    Isn’t a “photo opportunity” defined as an event or occasion, which by definition can’t have weight?


  10. - Wensicia - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:31 am:

    I’d sit through a live rant by Joe Walsh if a free lunch was offered.


  11. - 47th Ward - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:36 am:

    No way. In the Spirit of Liberty, you should spend Monday afternoon cruising Lake Springfield with your trusty mate Oscar and plenty of iced beverages.

    Enjoy your Freedom Rich, that’s the best way to pay tribute to Libertarians everywhere.

    (Plus, my bet is that’s a stack of petitions under that blanket, probably as valid as the Fair Map petitions too.)


  12. - PoolGuy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:38 am:

    this looks to be less about food and more about 50 shades of grey. is that pic on a bed?


  13. - haverford - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:38 am:

    Unless that thing is a 20lb chicken, they’ve really wasted an opportunity here.


  14. - Lobo Y Olla - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:38 am:

    This reads like typical “click-bait” generated by online content farms. Take a pass. It’ll be stoopit.


  15. - Amalia - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:39 am:

    No. Don’t eat their food. Not only that, don’t eat their information.


  16. - Anonymous - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:42 am:

    Don’t you want to know what’s under the “shroud”? The opportunity could be golden.


  17. - Midstate Indy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:46 am:

    Take the food, wash it down with some of their kool-aid.
    The photography and write up are sure to liven up a Monday afternoon for us all.


  18. - Wensicia - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:48 am:

    Yeah, you might get a caption contest out of this.


  19. - A guy... - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:51 am:

    No one should be that hungry.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 11:53 am:

    ===In the Spirit of Liberty, you should spend Monday afternoon cruising Lake Springfield with your trusty mate Oscar and plenty of iced beverages.===

    That is the type of Freedom I would celebrate too!!


  21. - Timmeh - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:03 pm:

    –As a political reporter, I think you and your CAPITOLFAX readers would be shocked to find out what’s underneath this shroud.–

    Lots of tea.
    $2.5 million dollars in ones, to be donated to the Rauner campaign.
    3 ducks in a cage


  22. - prisoner of cook - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:04 pm:

    GO! These guys have done a nice tease to get some coverage of whatever. Face it things are slow and its free food!


  23. - Third Reading - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:04 pm:

    Oh. I get it.

    It’s the Shroud of Turn-In.

    I’m outta here.


  24. - huh - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:05 pm:

    You can make political announcements in the Capitol? I didn’t think that was permitted.


  25. - FormerParatrooper - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:14 pm:

    Free food? As much as I am on the road something not from a chain is usually better. And why miss a chance to ask a few questions? Who knows that could be the secret diaries of our State Government… maybe even Blago’s hair style tips.


  26. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:14 pm:

    ===As a political reporter, I think you and your CAPITOLFAX readers would be shocked to find out what’s underneath this shroud.===

    If it’s an industrial Cannoli maker, I might even go!


  27. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:15 pm:

    ===As a political reporter, I think you and your CAPITOLFAX readers would be shocked to find out what’s underneath this shroud.===

    Last time I saw something covered like that, it made “Everlasting Gobstoppers”

    Just Sayin’


  28. - dupage dan - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:18 pm:

    It’s free food from the Libertarians. What could go wrong?


  29. - Shark Sandwich - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:18 pm:

    I wanted to do something with ’shroud of turin’, but nothing on point and mature came along. Instead, a limerick:

    With hope of drawing a crowd
    Free lunch! They cried, & a shroud!
    Small gov’ment was wished
    Free markets, fetished,
    no corp’rate welfare allowed!


  30. - Touré's Latte - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:20 pm:

    How could you not? Rich, you chronicle the wacky politics of Illinois. These guys want to give you free copy for several columns!


  31. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:20 pm:

    ===As a political reporter, I think you and your CAPITOLFAX readers would be shocked to find out what’s underneath this shroud.===

    It won’t be chickens, or maybe it will be chickens…some sort of poultry… Turkeys?


  32. - Levois - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:22 pm:

    I say go, the Libertarians have whetted my appetite as to what they want to present. Hopefully you’ll take pictures. Hopefully you’ll show us what they fed you. lol


  33. - DeKalb Guy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:24 pm:

    I’m guessing its the box of petitions. From the Department of Spoiling the Surprise and the Illinois Libertarian Party’s website:

    Lex is organizing the assembly of our petition and delivery to the State Board of Elections on June 23. We will follow up with a press conference in the State Capitol building to share our view of ballot access in Illinois and provide an opportunity for reporters to meet our candidates.


  34. - Amalia - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:30 pm:

    are they Libertarians if they are giving it away for free?


  35. - olddog - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:36 pm:

    There’s no such thing as a free …

    Oh, never mind.


  36. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:40 pm:

    “The bust of the only Governor not having legal issues”


  37. - South of Sherman - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:49 pm:

    I thought the whole point of CapFax was that you take the bullets so we don’t have to.

    Go, Rich, and regale us after with tales of Libertarian bacchanalia — cold cuts free from USDA inspection, bottled beverages purchased on the black market to avoid pernicious and unconstitutional sales taxes, etc.

    I think you owe us that much.


  38. - jerry 101 - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:50 pm:

    It’s a shell manufactured at the rock island arsenal, a town with about 40,000 people.

    if you go, be careful around it.


  39. - Tommydanger - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:54 pm:

    Go and bring Oscar with you in the event its a large Milk Bone.


  40. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 12:55 pm:

    Is it a time-traveling DeLorean?


  41. - Demoralized - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    Libertarians set to unveil giant middle finger statute in Capitol Rotunda. You won’t want to miss this!


  42. - Demoralized - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:01 pm:

    “statue” Or I suppose statute could also be just as applicable


  43. - Judgment Day - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:03 pm:

    “It won’t be chickens, or maybe it will be chickens…some sort of poultry… Turkeys?”

    It’s an empty cage for the Prairie Chickens. It’s the start of their “Free The Prairie Chickens” movement.


  44. - SportShz - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:11 pm:

    My PoliSci professors always said, “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” I like trying to prove them wrong, so you should go - plus this outta at least be worth a laugh.


  45. - x ace - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:14 pm:

    No Go - Switch Doors ( Gotta figure it’s a Monty Hall Problem set up )


  46. - Vote Quimby! - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:27 pm:

    I voted go. Libertarians need all the help they can get….


  47. - Ray del Camino - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:29 pm:

    Plus, grammar issues. Unclear antecedent. It should read, “I think you, as a political reporter, and your readers . . .”


  48. - Joe from Joliet - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:31 pm:

    It’s Senor Wences prop Pedro. I guess you would need to be there to see if Bosak can be as funny.

    S’alright.


  49. - wordslinger - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:31 pm:

    – Libertarians need all the help they can get…–

    Nah, they’re dealio is that no one needs help ever; they just need to be left alone.


  50. - Skeptic - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:36 pm:

    I voted “Go.” A $100 bill weighs about 1g, (1/30th of an ounce for the rest of us), so 20lbs * 16oz/lb * 28 g/oz means there about 9600 bills there, so figure $9.6M, divided by 40,000 votes comes to about $24/vote. Not very impressive. Better up your game dudes!


  51. - Ahoy! - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:37 pm:

    Voted yes, but not for the free food (although you should never turn down a free meal). I voted yes so I could see good reporting on it, I’m intrigued and hope they don’t disappoint.


  52. - Jimmy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:42 pm:

    I voted no, don’t sell yourself short. Hold out for free drinks.


  53. - Ghost - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:56 pm:

    Illinois has a librarian party? they must be trying to kindle interest in reading…..
    /rimshot


  54. - Skeptic - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 1:59 pm:

    Ghost: Actually it’s The Liberian party. They want to move the State capitol to eastern Africa.


  55. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:04 pm:

    You goofs. lol


  56. - jerry 101 - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:08 pm:

    9600 $100 bills?

    What did they do? Clean out Bruce Rauner’s many, many couches?


  57. - a drop in - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:13 pm:

    – The Libertarian Party of Illinois will hold a brief yet informative press conference at the Illinois State Capitol Building on June 23rd offering a plateful of candidates, a full take-away lunch for all reporters, and a hefty photo-op that will impress readers. –

    Nothing here says the food is free. Be careful, in case it’s a bunch of lawyers.


  58. - wordslinger - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:15 pm:

    –The Liberian party. They want to move the State capitol to eastern Africa.–

    West Africa, dude. Founded by freed American slaves as part of a repatriation movement starting in the 1820s..


  59. - Archiesmom - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:17 pm:

    ===As a political reporter, I think you and your CAPITOLFAX readers would be shocked to find out what’s underneath this shroud.===

    I need a good shock to start my heart after the stultification of the gubernatorial race. Make my day.


  60. - walker - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:22 pm:

    Ayn Rand’s Dollar Sign idol?

    Bare Cupboard?


  61. - Skeptic - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:26 pm:

    wordslinger: Oops, my bad. What’s sad is that I had a picture in my mind’s eye where the country is, (correctly, in the west) but for some reason my brain decided that was “east.” Maybe that’s because I didn’t go to a charter school.


  62. - siriusly - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:27 pm:

    Petitions - wonder who their candidate is.

    Norseman - free food is not good free food - I think you should go just to see who their candidate is and if he is worthy of covering for any reason. But make alternate lunch plans just in case. A Rauner event is far more likely to have better free food. Even Quinn’s campaign does pretty well on the catering choices. These guys - I am not so sure.


  63. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:27 pm:

    If it is a machine that does make “Everlasting Gobstoppers” I’ll pay triple what Slugworth is offering for one…


  64. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:29 pm:

    ===A Rauner event is far more likely to have better free food.===

    Rauner had cash bar at his Victory party for the Primary…


  65. - Mittuns - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:30 pm:

    Refuse to attend unless you can pay the fair market value of the provided meal.

    Koolaid included.


  66. - TooManyJens - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:32 pm:

    I’m not sure I’d eat the food at a gathering of people who think USDA inspection is government tyranny…


  67. - G'Kar - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:34 pm:

    I think should go to give us a culinary report on the lunch.


  68. - ChrisB - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:46 pm:

    I don’t understand what there is to explain. Everything tastes better when it’s free. Even the Vegan PETA Dogs.


  69. - Ghost - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 2:59 pm:

    - Maybe that’s because I didn’t go to a charter school.-

    Librarian party and schools just to read charts…best State ever!


  70. - siriusly - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 3:03 pm:

    Cash bar at the victory party? Maybe Rauner needs some advice from Chicago Alderman Jason Ervin about how to throw a party.


  71. - zatoichi - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 3:28 pm:

    It’s the Libation Party in disguise. 24 different cases of hand crafted beers from around the country. Admission starts at 12:30, Doors close at 1:00, Band starts at 2:00, doors reopen at 6:00. Speeches start after 5 cases are gone and active retort from the attendees is encouraged. Podium is caged with chicken wire for the timid.


  72. - Anonymous - Friday, Jun 20, 14 @ 4:27 pm:

    Don’t go; did you check out the Steve Bosak’s Facebook? https://www.facebook.com/steve.bosak1?fref=ts
