*** UPDATED x1 - Rauner at the winner’s circle *** And now… this

Thursday, Aug 14, 2014

* The “Boat Drink Caucus” - Reps. Chad Hays Mike Tryon - would like me to tell you that their rockin’ cover band is playing at the Bud Tent from 5-8 this evening. Their backup band today was the Blackhawks’ house band at the United Center. Should be a good time.

* Speaking of Tryon, here he is gazing in wide wonder at State Fair fashionista (or fashion disaster, depending) Dave Dring’s boots…

*** UPDATE *** The post hasn’t generated many comments so far, but I’m betting the addition of this pic will do the trick…

    Dring is always stylish. More concerned about Tryon’s Birks, get a pair of shoes ya hippy.


  2. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 2:17 pm:

    Do we have to drink Bud products in the Bud tent, or can we bring good beer to it?


  3. - Anonymous - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 2:21 pm:

    Girly boots or at least match with belt


  4. - Bogey Golfer - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 2:36 pm:

    The guy on the right is prepared for all the manure that goes with the State Fair. The guy on the left - not so much.

  20. - Anonymoiis - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:34 pm:

    Here we see Bruce Rauner proudly celebrating his new prize winning Steer’s victory in the harness race, after every horse in the race mysteriously never made it to the track.


  21. - A guy... - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:36 pm:

    There’s only one difference between me and that prize steer I just bought…but it’s a really big difference.

    Yep, Only one of us went to U of I.

    (What were you thinking it was?)

    No one wears their pants inside their boots. What a bozo.


  25. - Wensicia - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:49 pm:

    Rauner: “How did I win? It was easy. I bought the racetrack and banned the other horses!”


  26. - js - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:52 pm:

    Only one thumbs up? With your money you can afford two.


  27. - Norseman - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:52 pm:

    I want to thank my poker buddy Dick Duchossois for bringing this small stage from Churchill Downs for me to address you.


  28. - Norseman - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:54 pm:

    Hey, I’m back here! Yes, it’s me back here. Damn, I wish they’d put this in front of the Democrat tent rather than behind it.


  29. - anon-again - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:55 pm:

    How did state fair manager let BR on the stand in front of the horse racing crowd? Maybe its me but not real smart.


  30. - Norseman - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    Mr. Rauner, everyone has to pay $5 cash for the tourist picture. I can’t bill the campaign credit card.


  31. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:58 pm:

    So Dave did not get the memo the Urban Cowboy look is out. At least Rauner can win at the dog and pony show.


  32. - js - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 3:58 pm:

    Four horse heads and one horse’s _____.


  33. - Jorge - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 4:02 pm:

    This is what it feels like to have 9 homes, when running against some guy that cannot even mow his lawn.


  34. - Anon - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 4:04 pm:

    Dring needed those boots when he was the House GOP press guy and it got pretty deep.


  35. - jerry 101 - Thursday, Aug 14, 14 @ 4:06 pm:

    Reporter 1: Uh, how does it feel, Bruce Rauner, winning the race?

    Bruce Rauner: Oh, well I–
    Reporter 2: - gaining fame and fortune.

    Bruce Rauner: Uh, yes.

    Reporter 3: Having your picture taken for the newspaper.

    Bruce Rauner: Uh, oh, actually, I’m delighted.

    Reporter 4: Besides having your extreme good looks, if I may say so.

    Bruce Rauner: Oh, well, I wouldn’t go–

    Reporter 3: There probably aren’t words to describe your emotions.

    Bruce Rauner: Now, now, now, now, gentlemen, please. On the contrary, there’s a very good word. Am I right, Chip?

    Chip: Tell ‘em what it is.

    Bruce Rauner: Right! It’s … (sings)

    Supercalifragilistic- expialidocious!

    Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious

    If you say it loud enough you’ll always sound precocious

    Supercalifragilistic- expialidocious

  53. - MrGrassroots - Friday, Aug 15, 14 @ 7:35 am:

    Where is the football so Rauner can spike it? He is becoming so overconfident, his middle name could be “Bill Brady”.
