Question of the day

Monday, Jun 23, 2014

* Congressman Aaron Schock and Bruce Rauner have apparently buried the hatchet. Greg Hinz

Schock and Rauner had what I’m told was a productive peace-making session over several cups of coffee a few days ago.

* Greg is right, as usual. From Schock’s Twitter feed


* The Question: Caption?

    “See, Bruce. When you do a selfie, you can make sure no one in the pic with you is sporting a confederate flag.”

    Eat your heart out Ellen.


  4. - Jack - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 12:42 pm:

    People who enjoy bashing their heads into concrete support Rauner and Schock.


  5. - Quizzical - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 12:43 pm:

    I realized that the most important thing for me was to be the best dressed person in all my pictures. And so as long as Bruce is being Carhardt Bruce and hanging out with bikers, my $250 shirts will look pretty good when I take pictures with him.


  6. - OneMan - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 12:44 pm:

    Governor Quinn’s campaign pointed out how it sent the wrong message to kids for Bruce Rauner to be pictured near someone smoking a cigar.

    Liz, you’re better than that. Put your wicked skills to work for good.

  12. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 1:06 pm:

    Aaron Schock show via Twitter the Bruce Rauner is now part if his Friends and Family or “Framily” cell phone package…


  13. - MrJM (@MisterJayEm) - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 1:11 pm:

    Are we sure Billion Dollar Bruce didn’t just hire a Aaron Schock look-alike?

    It wouldn’t be unprecedented: http://youtu.be/td9i6-oa4Kw?t=41s

    Who needs a tripod when this way I can make sure my spiffy new shirt is front and center?

    Ooops! Winnetka dude photobombed me!

    Keep smiling Bruce…the guys will take the cuffs off real soon, now.


  23. - Publius - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 1:56 pm:

    There are enough guys between Bruce and me that when he pulls the knife out I’ll be. Ok.


  24. - Bemused - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 2:00 pm:

    Dad’s old saying started ringing in my ear.

    “Now there’s a pair to draw too”, Usually uttered when he saw a couple of folks he did not hold in high esteem.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 2:07 pm:

    “Now youse can’t leave…”


  26. - Wndycty - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 2:25 pm:

  29. - Illinoisey - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 2:30 pm:

    At first glance, I thought this was a picture of Neil Patrick Harris and his dad.


  30. - In_The_Middle - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 2:47 pm:

    Wait’n in line for the bathroom after coffee with Bruce. #bladdercontrol


  31. - LizPhairTax - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 3:01 pm:

    OK, that is a big tent but you’re still doing it wrong.

    Word, admonishment noted.


  32. - A guy... - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 3:16 pm:

    Maybe Bruce just helped Aaron become Chief Deputy Whip, eh? Maybe, just maybe that’s a better path than he was on. Helping an ambitious guy fulfill his ambition, no matter how it plays out, still yields a result of satisfaction for the ambitious guy. This relationship appears to have been mended. There are votes in Central/Southern Illinois. Schock can deliver them. Rauner is practical.


  33. - Wumpus - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 3:23 pm:

    What demoralized said.

    Creepy, Tom Hagen assessment of “helping”. I felt like I needed a shower reading that, - A Guy… -.

    Yikes!

    “Caption”?

    “Remember Aaron, all that will be left …after this selfie …is Our Friendship”.


  39. - fisher - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 4:21 pm:

    Kudos to Illinoisey for the NPH connection. Beat me to a NPH caption.


  40. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 4:26 pm:

    “Okay, you guys stand around the Rauner cutout to give it some depth.”


  41. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 4:28 pm:

    “See? If you used Crest White-Strips like me, it would remove all that chewing tobacco stain. Really!!”


  42. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 4:29 pm:

    “And after this photo, Bruce is buying funnel cakes for everybody, aren’t you, Bruce? Bruce?”


  43. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 4:30 pm:

    “No, no, Bruce. I’m glad you got rid of the Carhartt jacket, but don’t you own anything besides white shirts?”


  44. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 4:33 pm:

    “And after we’re done with this photo, we’re all going up to New Salem and ride the cow!”

    Am I the only one who caught the meaning of the earlier Lizphairtax comment? Sneaky. Cunning and less than a week to a big parade on Chicago’s n side.


  46. - wordslinger - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 5:05 pm:

    –Am I the only one who caught the meaning of the earlier Lizphairtax comment? –

    No.


  47. - NickatNite - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 5:10 pm:

    Thank you wordslinger. I was fearing that good snark had gone unnoticed. Like billionaire checkbooks good snark is a terrible thing to waste.

    Oswego,

    perhaps I deserved that.


  52. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jun 23, 14 @ 5:47 pm:

    - NickatNight -, elevate is all.

    “Caption?”

    Rep. Aaron Schock photo gets World Record for most people photo bombing a Congressional selfie.

    I gave Bruce my turquoise pants.
