  3. - Jimmy - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:32 pm:

    love, damn typos…


  4. - Almost the Weekend - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:35 pm:

    What do you think is more real: Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory or Rauner’s budget to fully fund education and infrastructure without raising taxes?


  5. - Res Melius - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:36 pm:

    Rauner: Hello Pat. Nice wig. Going undercover today?


  6. - bottom rung. - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:38 pm:

    “Do you wanna know how I got these scars?”

    The Joker’s new partner in crime is even crazier.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:42 pm:

    “Hello sir, will you be voting absentee from where they are keeping you, or do you get a day pass?”


  8. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:45 pm:

    About five people I know will get this, but it’s too funny to me to pass up. Rauner: “Roger, is that you? Love the new wig… I mean hairdo.”


  9. - bored now - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:47 pm:

    “i won’t let go until you commit to vote for me. the deal has to be signed in blood…”

    RAUNER:Hmmm….that get-up might work for my next campaign. #winning

    Carrying on in the Willy Wonka Theme
    Queing up my best Bruce Rauner Voice

    “Ooompah Loompah doompety doo
    Wait for the taxes I spring on you”
    “Oompah loompah doompety doo
    Yes, I’ll shield my rich friends too”

    ….

    “Rauner giving straws for the Quinn crowd to grasp at, shaking hands with Willy Wonka.”


  15. - Anonymoiis - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    “Whoaaaaa, dude, are you, like, Paul Bunyan?”


  16. - Commissioner Gordon - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:56 pm:

    After some $140k wine EVERYONE looks good.


  18. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 3:59 pm:

    Notice Rauner’s two-handed hand shake? That’s how you get yourself an $18 watch my friend.


  19. - MrJM - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:01 pm:

    Rauner: “I never intended for those hired gunmen to intimidate any of you hardworking Libertarian voters…”

    – MrJM


  20. - walker - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:02 pm:

    Wouldn’t make fun regular folks who attend parades and want to meet candidates. Staffers and pols a whole different ballgame.

    “Diane’s right about his shirts. This ain’t the north woods.”


  21. - On The Fence - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:03 pm:

    About five people I know will get this, but it’s too funny to me to pass up. Rauner: “Roger, is that you? Love the new wig… I mean hairdo.”

    This town only has room for one wig…I mean hairdo like that!


  22. - A guy... - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:08 pm:

    It looks like Danny Bonaduce is back in town, eh?


  23. - Bogey Golfer - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:08 pm:

    “And you must be one of the everyday people my opponent keeps talking about.”


  24. - tsavo - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:11 pm:

    Hey Bruce, you want to join my wine club? Three bucks, tonight we are drinking Thunderbird.


  25. - Boone's is Back - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:19 pm:

    “Looks like we shop at the same dollar store!”


  26. - BIG R. Ph. - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:27 pm:

    Carrot Top will be performing at the Rauner inaugural Ball


  27. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:28 pm:

    “Phil Spector! When did you get out?”


  28. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 4:33 pm:

    I never wanted to do this job in the first place!

    “Nice meeting you mam, ah man, ah citizen, er parade watcher.”


  33. - Downstate Libertarian - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 5:00 pm:

    Mr. Wonka, thank you for lending me your hat. I didn’t know your hair would be such a mess.

    I will get it back to you once my…ummm… the GOP’s appeal of the State Board of Elections. It is my LAST DITCH attempt to claim my golden ticket to the Governor’s mansion.


  34. - Six Degrees of Separation - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 5:23 pm:

    A very ill Roger Daltrey: Thanks for asking, but no, you dont have The Who’s permission to use “Won’t Get Fooled Again” as your campaign theme song.


  35. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 5:30 pm:

    “Mr. Rauner, thank you do much for coming today in costume. I feel so much more at ease.”


  36. - Blue Dog - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 5:35 pm:

    I admire your stance on Labor relations Mr. Wonka & as governor I will work hard to make sure all state employees are only compensated with cocoa beans.


  37. - Jocko - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 6:00 pm:

    One person lives in a fantasy world of his own making…allowing a select few to come and visit with the promise of untold riches.

    And the other person is Willy Wonka.


  38. - Commonsense in Illinois - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 6:20 pm:

    Yeah, so this hold here…you lift at the elbow and push down the hand really fast. If you do it right you can pretty much dislocate the petition-signing hand of any Libertarian…


  39. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 7:00 pm:

    labor day and mother`s day the same holiday?


  40. - state worker - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 8:01 pm:

  43. - ArchPundit - Tuesday, Sep 2, 14 @ 10:35 pm:

    Candidate Bruce Rauner meets the only person in Illinois who is more wooden than the candidate is.


  44. - Nicolas - Monday, Sep 15, 14 @ 8:56 pm:

    The top online marketers have joined forces with the industry’s top network marketers; spent over $500,000.

    Area pools and water parks offer fun and exercise
    for children through much of the summer. When examining hay,
    color on the outside of the bale is not terribly important.
