    “It’s me and Johnny C now, Mikey… Me and Johnny C…”


  2. - Anon. - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:13 pm:

    “Shut down looms”? Is this a remake of Norma Rae?


  3. - Norseman - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:14 pm:

    Bruce, do you have one of those joke buzzers in your hand?


  4. - MrJM - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:17 pm:

    In unison: “PSYCHE! JINX!! You owe me a Coke!

    – MrJM


  5. - Joe M - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:18 pm:

    Sorry Mr. Governor, I was just reaching up to scratch my nose - not to shake your hand.

    And that gets a laugh out of Cullerton.


  6. - Mitch1959 - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:19 pm:

    We can’t believe this guy got elected!


  7. - Liberty - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:19 pm:

    I thought you were on hold.


  8. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:20 pm:

    “Governor, please turn off the slides. You’ve already shown them to us four times.”


  9. - Roadbuilder - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:20 pm:

    Madigan: “You can’t beat me, so I don’t know why you’re trying. I’m Teflon, baby.”
    Cullerton (with Cheshire cat grin): “Yeah, yeah, yeah…Teflon!


  10. - Casual Reader - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:22 pm:

    “Mr. Rauner, your handshake approach is far too extreme. We need to do this in moderation.”


  11. - Joe M - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:22 pm:

    Cullerton: What a relief. I can tell already that he is going to be butting heads with Michael, and not going after me. I predict he might even start running TV ads against Michael later this year. Hee hee hee, while I sit back and let Michael take the heat.


  12. - Wensicia - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:27 pm:

    “Welcome to my nightmare!”


  13. - One Time - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:28 pm:

    Cullerton: “This guy has no idea that the Speaker can’t be touched.”


  14. - Verbatim Writer - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:30 pm:

    “It’s a cold bowl of water, but if you wash your hands real quick like Pontius the other centurions won’t notice…here, touch my hand and see….”


  15. - Tsavo - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:30 pm:

    “Mike, I just want to thank you for having Quinn sign SB1. Man those retirees were really mad, I could not have gotten elected without you”.


  16. - vole - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:33 pm:

    Madigan: “Did this guy pass through security?”


  17. - William j Kelly - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:42 pm:

    Madigan: ‘let me know how I can help Jim, I mean George, I mean rod, I mean… ahh.. ah… ah…., wait a minute it will come to me, oh yes Bruce! Sorry, it is so hard to keep you all straight.’


  18. - Umm like - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:45 pm:

    I understand that you have made a good living. The courts protect you’re shady business practices. You didn’t need a friend like me. But, now you come to me and say - Michael Madigan give me justice. But, you didn’t ask with respect. You didn’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me Speaker. Instead you come into my house and you ask me to cut the throats of working people across Illinois.


  19. - Gooner - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:51 pm:

    “And just today, I attended a Cubs game with the Speaker and Majority Leader.”


  20. - Amalia - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:57 pm:

  23. - A guy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 1:59 pm:

  25. - The Colossus of Roads - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:03 pm:

    I am standing.


  26. - phocion - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:05 pm:

    BVR: “This guy has shorter arms than a T-Rex. More Madigan tricks to make me lean in to him. Right, John?”


  27. - Beaner - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:05 pm:

    Okay, the semi-trailer full of cash from Fahner and Wirtz we will split three ways. And when it comes time to talk turkey about new revenue, we will screw the W2 wage slave like usual. It is agreed, let’s shake, no taxes or regulation for the highly subsidized Casino and Alcohol industry which consumes 15% of every State tax dollar or more than $6 billion a year. This working for “free” thing is working out great!


  28. - ChicagoDem - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:06 pm:

    “Hey, Bruce…welcome to the club. We’re just a couple of Irish guys from Chicago. Let’s talk.”


  29. - thunderspirit - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:07 pm:

    “I didn’t know until this day that it was Barzini all along.”


  30. - Boone's is Back - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:09 pm:

    In MJM’s best Ivan Drago impression…”I must break you.”


  31. - zatoichi - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:10 pm:

    A full Monty Medusa stare.


  32. - Bill White - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:17 pm:

    The guy with the smile always is the good cop.


  33. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:19 pm:

    “Are we still agreed that Quinn wears the jacket when we whack pensions again?”


  34. - sal-says - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:21 pm:

    Mike: “With least warmest regards”
    John: “You tell him, Mike.”


  35. - Bluefish - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:25 pm:

    I put the iocane powder in both their goblets.

    “I require payment before I ferry you across the river Styx, Governor.”


  37. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:35 pm:

    “This is not a handshake of gratitude, this is a binding contract.”


  38. - Educated in the Suburbs - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:44 pm:

    It’s actually just a waxwork MJM that Rauner uses to make it look like he’s talking to the legislature.


  39. - AC - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:45 pm:

    Come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    Try to love one another
    Right now


  40. - Slippin' Jimmy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:47 pm:

    No Governor, I am not the Bleepin’ Banned Word and Johnny here, he is not the Bleepin’ Banned Word but, and I’m sorry to say it Governor, and with all due respect Sir….You Sir are a Bleepin’ Banned Word(which hardly ever crosses my lips)


  41. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 2:47 pm:

    Now he’s got the Speaker as a partner. Any problems, he goes to the Speaker. Trouble with a bill, he goes to the Speaker. Trouble with approps, human services, Cullerton? He can go to the Speaker. But now he has to pay the Speaker every week no matter what. “Business bad? Tough luck, pay me. Oh, had a fire? Tough luck, pay me. The place got hit by lightning? Tough luck, pay me.”


  42. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:11 pm:

    Also, the Speaker could do anything. Especially run up bills on the state’s credit. And why not? Nobody’s gonna pay for it anyway. And as soon as the deliveries are made in the front door, you move the stuff out the back and sell it at a discount. You take a two hundred dollar million prison and you sell it for a hundred million. It doesn’t matter. It’s all profit. And then finally, when there’s nothing left, when you can’t borrow another buck from Wall Street or buy another case of booze, you bust the joint out. You light a match.


  43. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:16 pm:

    MJM, “The last governor that tried to triangulate me with a Senate President moved out west, it just wasn’t Montana…”


  44. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:18 pm:

    MJM, “You still don’t have a budget, Governor…”


  45. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:19 pm:

    MJM, “You silence The Owl, I’ll get you your Agenda…”


  46. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:20 pm:

    MJM, “Don’t smile at Cullerton when you shake my hand… I know the score… “


  47. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:26 pm:

    Rauner, “Me, Rahm, and Johnny missed you at Tavern on Rush the other night. Had a blast…”


  48. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:27 pm:

    Rauner, “Like I told Johnny, he can make a deal with me… and still keep his Chamber…”


  49. - William j Kelly - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:32 pm:

    Rauner: “I’ve got Rahm in my ear… No.. really… I literally have Rahm In my ear, he calls me his ‘new host body’ and once I have served his purpose he will eat my brain, strange right?”


  50. - Deep South - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:33 pm:

    Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan (left) takes on a serious look as he welcomes Gov. Bruce Rauner to the House floor. Senate President John Cullterton (right) later said, “I started to laugh ’cause Mike had just banned the Legislative Liasons and told me the governor needs to get his ass down here.”


  51. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:35 pm:

    Rauner, “John, Glad you liked that wine I sent you, hey Mike…”


  52. - Empty Suit - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:52 pm:

  53. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 3:56 pm:

  54. - Empty Suit - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 4:09 pm:

    Cullerton - “Yeah Madigan got me on that “pull my finger trick”


  55. - A guy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 4:10 pm:

    MJM: And tell your staff to get off my lawn.


  56. - Anon. - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 4:32 pm:

    “If you consider $4 billion ‘just finance,’ te salute, Don Corleone.”


  57. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 4:35 pm:

    Rauner, “Ok… We shake… I get 2 Turnaround Agenda items, you get a tax increase, Johnny there gets a victory lap on pensions… Deal?”


  58. - Luggie - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 4:44 pm:

    Rauner: I know you’ve been complaining about Goldie, my lapdog. Trust me, his snark is worse than his bite.


  59. - Bluecollargal - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 5:11 pm:

  62. - burbanite - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 5:37 pm:

    MJM: Who is this?
    JC: I don’t know but I think he wants to hold your hand…


  63. - Under Further Review - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 5:41 pm:

    Madigan: “Kass always talks about this “moutzah” hand gesture thing. Is this right? Nyah. Talk to the hand.”


  64. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 5:42 pm:

  73. - Mama - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 7:59 pm:

    MJM’s black Irish eyes are snapping. Guv.. you could have just line-item vetoed the parts of the budget you didn’t like and approve the rest. Pres Cullerton, what fun is that?


  74. - facts are stubborn things - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 8:25 pm:

    Gov. you have no idea what you are up against….Cullerton.


  75. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 8:35 pm:

    Ok… Finally…

    “Caption?”

    “Good to see Middle Management made it today, gentlemen, hello…”


  76. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 8:43 pm:

    “Mike, I got nothin’ but time and money… “


  77. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 8:54 pm:

    Rauner, “Just bring the Chamber’s keys at the closing for me. The money is in escrow…”


  78. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:05 pm:

    Rauner, “I enjoy your table at Saputo’s very much… “


  79. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:13 pm:

    Rauner, “I ain’t no band leader…”


  80. - Wordslinger - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:24 pm:

    Apropos of nothing, but Chris Sale is absolutely filthy, dont you think Cards fans?

    The kid has a lightning bolt in that left arm, just electric, dancing stuff.

    And he has an owner’s dream contract through 2019.

    Kenny might just deal him and rebuild the Sox on the fly, but it’s going to take a king’s ransom.


  81. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:36 pm:

    Love how Sale goes about his business.

    The question is do you trade Sale, especially when he’s so hot, to build with AA players, maybe an arm, expiring contract, or keep Sale build around him and still be terrible for 2 more years or so.

    Ten or more Ks, I mean c’mon… Sale deserves better.

    “Caption?”

    Rauner, “Now you’re gonna see my version of ‘Fire Madigan’…”


  82. - 618er - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:38 pm:

    The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink, and find out who is right..


  83. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:38 pm:

    Rauner, “I’ll trade you Goldberg for 2 Turnaround Agenda votes, my choice… “


  84. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:40 pm:

    Rauner, “Wanna hug? Ok, how about a handshake…”


  85. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:44 pm:

    Rauner, “Lance says, ‘No hard feelin’s’…”


  86. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:45 pm:

    Rauner, “It’s just a hand, Mike, we shake them… “


  87. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:47 pm:

    Rauner, “Speaker. Look at me, I did this to you. Remember me.”

  91. - Newton - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 9:59 pm:

    Hey, this year they got extra time before July 1st. Today has a leap second.


  92. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jun 30, 15 @ 10:13 pm:

    Rauner, “I can fool some of the people… all the time… Cullerton feels me… “
