* My old buddy Lance Trover is a major Parrothead, so he proudly texted this photo of himself and Jimmy Buffett last night after running into the living legend at Shaw’s Crab House…

Lance is a spokesman for Bruce Rauner’s campaign. I asked him if he told Buffett who he worked for…

Haha. Left that part out.

    Wastin’ away in Raunerville

    Looking for my lost jacket and watch

    Some people say there is a Madigan to blame

    But, really, it’s my own *&%^ fault


  2. - Stones - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:22 am:

    Now I know why Jimmy Buffet performs wearing a baseball cap.

    Didn’t know Buffet had a beard?

    Politics isn’t served in Margaritaville.

    “Jimmy, if you can have a ‘Margaritaville’ we can have a Madiganistan.”

    Quinns to the Left; Quinns to the Right;
    and you’re the only Flack in Town.

    Also 2 T’s in Buffett, Rich.

    “Is there a flash on that camera, or are those spots and shapes I see from something else?”


  9. - Rich Miller - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:26 am:

    Thanks, RB. Still working on the first cuppa java.


  10. - so... - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:30 am:

    It’s those changes in latitudes,
    changes in attitudes no Rauner position remains quite the same.


  11. - OneMan - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:31 am:

    20% of all CapFax commenters reported burning their Buffet CDs…

    He touched a Rauner campaign worker, can’t listen to any of them now one guy from Oswego said…


  12. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:34 am:

    ===He touched a Rauner campaign worker, can’t listen to any of them now one guy from Oswego said…===

    Notice Lance didn’t tell Buffett he worked for Rauner?

    Just sayin’, lol


  13. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:38 am:

    “Caption?”

    Jimmy Buffett, after a “session” with some fans, takes a picture with “World’s Sexiest Man” Adam Levine…or so thought Buffett.


  14. - train111 - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:42 am:

    Rauner on his campaign:

    “Made enough money to buy Miami, but I pi***d it away so fast. Never meant to last. Never meant to last.”


  15. - Give Me A Break - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:45 am:

    Good to see George Shadid is still around.


  16. - wordslinger - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:47 am:

    JB might have more money than Rauner. Those parrotheads pay off like clockwork, year after year.

    Truly a philosopher-king, who puts forth the immortal question: “Why don’t we get drunk and screw?”

    Why indeed.


  17. - Rich Miller - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:47 am:

    Buffett: I’ve been here 20 minutes and can’t get a drink and now the dishwasher wants a photo. Never coming back.


  18. - Ron Burgundy - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:49 am:

    Changes in Latitudes
    The Pols Speak in Platitudes
    Illinois Remains Quite the Same
    With These Guys Who Are Running
    With All of Their Cunning
    If We Couldn’t Laugh
    We Would All Go Insane

    I vote for train111 & Ron Burgundy


  21. - Chicago Cynic - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:56 am:

    Holy crap he’s gotten old…which I guess means so have we.


  22. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:57 am:

    Give Me a Break — Good line about Shadid.

    Reminded me of the late Ross Elliott’s joke:

    “George Shadid’s nose is so big, he’s still breathing yesterday’s air.”


  23. - so... - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 9:57 am:

    Buffet: I heard the panhandlers in Chicago were aggressive, but I didn’t know they followed you into the restaurant.

    I didn’t know Shaw’s had a Buffet table.

    I had to google this guy. Awkward.

    Fruitcakes holding hearings

    Fruitcakes on Randolph Street

    Saying #NRI can’t be beat

    Half-baked theories in the oven

    Half-baked panders off the cuff

    There’s a little bit of fruitcake left in everyone but us


  31. - Anon - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 10:13 am:

    He’s come a long way from managing Brooke at the IL GOP to hanging out with real stars.


  32. - Yipperdo - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 10:17 am:

    Lance proudly stands next to Rauner’s key demographic, rich old white men.


  33. - gopher - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 10:19 am:

    Sure I know your boss, he let me land my plane at one of his islands last year.


  34. - Responsa - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 10:24 am:

    Jimmy looks happy. Seriously, if he had casually walked into a restaurant or store where I was and he was without an entourage I would not have recognized it was Buffett.


  35. - Anonymous - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 10:30 am:

    I though that was a guy that works at our local Lowe’s, but the guy at Lowe’s always wear “flip-flops”! Hmmm….

    Raunerburger in paradise


  37. - Rent - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 10:52 am:

    Lance Trover and Jimmy Buffett are all smiles after intense negotiations which led to an agreement that all future Chicago concerts will be moved from Tinley Park to either Toyota Park or Wrigley Field. As part of the deal, brokered over various types of booze from a blender, additional tour stops will be made in Champaign and Vienna Illinois.


  38. - A guy... - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 10:53 am:

    Nothin’. I got nothin’ on this one. Sorry.


  39. - Mittuns - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 11:01 am:

    Gov. Pat Quinn poses for a photo with Oliver T. Pennysworth, a Rauner operative, at a high end seafood house yesterday afternoon.

    “When you see food, you eat it,” opined Quinn. “Food is bipartisan. Both Democrats and Republicans have to consume it to survive.”


  40. - Keyser Soze - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 11:37 am:

    Is this the beginning of a potheads for Rauner movement?


  41. - Holy Cow - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 11:44 am:

    Looks like Larry David!

    Good to see George Shadid is still around.

    I did a spit take on this one and almost sprayed my lunch guests! Too funny! Did you ever notice George looks a lot like Larry David?


  46. - so... - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 3:35 pm:

    Two men in this photo. One’s an old guy who lost most of his hair long ago. The other is Jimmy Buffett.


  47. - Lil Tyranny - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 3:37 pm:

    Pour me something tall and strong;
    make it a hurricane before Brooke goes insane;
    it’s only mid-July, but I don’t care.


  48. - Anon - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 3:41 pm:

    Nibblin’ on crabs, watchin’ Jimmy Buffett. Somewhere in Margaritaville.


  49. - Reptar - Monday, Jul 21, 14 @ 3:46 pm:

    When asked what they discussed, Lance laughed and said “That’s a great question. I’ll discuss that in due time. I’ll be outlining it for you in the coming weeks.”

    –Pour me something tall and strong;

    LOL, I’m Outlaw/Bakersfield country, but coming from a hat act, that’s a fun little ditty.

    I used to work for a company that the Great Gretzky had a piece of (best team sport athlete of his day). Wayno would come in the office in the morning while we were having coffee, crack a Molson, and say “it’s noon somewhere, eh?”
