Caption contest!

Friday, Aug 8, 2014

* This pic was sent to me by the Quinn campaign. It features a man holding a Bruce Rauner sign standing in front of a pile of Illinois State Fair manure. I don’t know whether this was staged or not, but they claim it’s a Rauner supporter..

Heh.

Try very, very hard to keep your comments clean. I know it won’t be easy, but try. Thanks.

…Adding… This is obviously no Rauner supporter. I didn’t look at the sign closely enough, but it has an anti-Rauner message, which certainly gives the caption a different potential twist.

    “Bruce Rauner: piling up the success stories.”

    Shawshank Redemption Fans for Rauner strikes again! You really need to post the “after” photo.


  5. - Robert0117 - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:44 am:

    Rauner’s promise to clean up Sprinfield, includes the State Fair which has some of the less pungent mess.


  6. - OneMan - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:44 am:

    A Rauner support stands in front of Quinn’s explanations about hiring at IDOT.


  7. - OneMan - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:46 am:

    Also look at the sign…

    Beat the heat with a tax cheat, if it is a Rauner supporter it would appear to be one they duped…


  8. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:46 am:

    Bruce Rauner’s Campaign is shows adding a ‘lil love’ will do to a boring story…

    BTW, the “sign” really doesn’t have a “pro Rauner” message, so if it is a supporter…yikes.


  9. - Anonymoiis - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:47 am:

    Politics is like fertilizer. Sometimes you’ve got to dig into and spread some (manure), to get the best results in the end.


  10. - Norseman - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:47 am:

    === but they claim it’s a Rauner supporter.. ===

    Methinks the Quinn campaign is dispensing some manure with this statement.


  11. - Truthteller - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:47 am:

    This sign only scratches the surface of the long list of questions about Rauner’s business dealings and taxes.
    When voters see the long list- nursing home abuses, tax dodges, wage and hour law violations, pay to play with Stu Levine and Ed Rendell- Rauner is bi-partisan when it comes to making money- and who knows what else,he’ll be toast

    If he’s a Rauner supporter, he doesn’t know how to read.


  14. - Sausage - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:48 am:

    Sadly, this man fell into the manure after attempting to do the “Quinnocchio Shuffle”

    Normally i don’t like to judge, but I gotta say that’s a terrible photo caption

  17. - Nearly Normal - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:49 am:

    Yep, Bruce is feeding us a lot of BS and here get a sack and take home some!


  18. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:49 am:

    Raunerbot so excited, he grabs the first sign he sees with Rauner’s name on it….

    …and stands next to what farmers, the um, “backbone of Illinois” smell when they think of money…


  19. - Norseman - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:50 am:

    Man stands in front of a symbolism of the 2014 Illinois Governor’s race.


  20. - Spliff - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:50 am:

    He’s a retired AFSCME member who is in no way a Rauner supporter.

    Caption “I support Bruce and all his Bull@88t!”


  21. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:50 am:

    “Can you see my Rauner sign. Go Bruce!”


  22. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:52 am:

    “Ok you press people…whose gonna dig in to get those tax returns?”


  23. - Sausage - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:52 am:

    He is clearly a Rauner supporter - can’t you see the “Rauner for Governor” sign he’s holding for his native Cayman Islands? (the palm tree shirt is a dead giveaway)


  24. - Streator Curmudgeon - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:52 am:

    “Da boss lost his $18 wrist watch in here. Anybody wanna help me hunt for it?”

    Most ranting caption contest entry ever!

    Looking forward to your next one


  26. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:54 am:

    Most candidates leave leaflets or confetti after speaking. Bruce Rauner leaves behind a symbol of his truthfulness.


  27. - Wensicia - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:54 am:

    “Don’t let Quinn fool you! That’s not just fertilizer he’s spreading!”


  28. - Streator Curmudgeon - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:54 am:

    “Really. You’re sure they won’t recognize their governor just ’cause I’m wearing these shades and this goofy hat?”


  29. - OneMan - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:55 am:

    Lets have him stand in front of something that represents what our claim of him being a Rauner support is…

    Yeah that’s the ticket.


  30. - Casual Observer - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:55 am:

    I was told if I hold this sign I would get free chips.

  38. - OneMan - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 9:59 am:

    Few had seen the business end of the Quinn press operation before…


  39. - the Patriot - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 10:00 am:

    The IL problem:

    Current Governor: just a pile of manure here.

    Rauner, lets put the manure on the field to get better yield out of the crops.

    Just so you city folks know, farmers call a pile of manure, money in the bank. And frankly, it is.


  40. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 10:01 am:

    It takes “this” much to explain the headaches of Rauner every week..,


  41. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 10:03 am:

    “Ok, let’s try it with the hat again, and hold the sign right side up this time…”


  42. - Streator Curmudgeon - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 10:04 am:

    “Hold the sign a little straighter, Governor. Yeah, that’s it. Then after this we’ll get some photos of you cooking out on the grill for all your friends.”

    On a side note The Quinn campaign took or found the Photo. Why lie that it is a supporter? If you were going to stage it why not just pick up one of his signs at the R tent and make it look legit? Sloppy

    Caption “This is one end of the Alimentary Canal the other is up the street at the intersection of Capital and Second.”

  83. - wordslinger - Friday, Aug 8, 14 @ 3:23 pm:

    Quinn should use some of that manure to light a fire under his Ag Dept. to line up some corporate sponsors for the fair.

    The anemic sponsorship lineup grinds my gears every year. How is it possible that there isn’t a soft drink sponsor? Or McDonalds? Or WGN? Or a Walgreens Health and Wellness Fair?

    How about the world’s largest agricultural commodities futures exchange, beneficiaries of a huge, special tax break at the height of the recession?

    How about the enormous Illinois farm implement manufacturer, named after the Illinois dude who invented the self-scouring plow! It’s sick that Deere and CME aren’t sponsors.

    How about all the corporate welfare mooches with their hands out for grants and EDGE credits all the time? You could go on and on. Put it an effort and sign them up.

    Here are links to the Illinois State Fair sponsors and the Wisconsin State Fair sponsors. Read ‘em and weep. Somebody’s not hustling, somebody is. It’s pathetic.
