    “I sure hope the Speaker put this pic on his Instagram”


  2. - Anonymous - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:46 pm:

    Mike Madigan and the pants height he controls


  3. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    “Sir, please. If you hold that hand too tight, the wax needs to be touched up… “


  4. - Big Muddy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    no caption but a question. Is Madigan literally melting through his shoes? His armpits are going to chaffing on his belt shortly.


  5. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:48 pm:

    “How about something… a little less… posed? Better… “


  6. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:49 pm:

    “No, I’m sure. The proportions seemed ok at the time… “


  7. - AlfondoGonz - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:49 pm:

    “I thought these carpets would age more gracefully when I picked them out in 1970″


  8. - Boone's is Back - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:50 pm:

    The incredible shrinking man


  9. - @MisterJayEm - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:50 pm:

    At this rate, by 2020 the Speaker’s inseam and fly will be the same length.

    – MrJM


  10. - Norseman - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:50 pm:

    Either the Speaker is shrinking or his pants are growing.


  11. - Rich Miller - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:50 pm:

    MJM: You know, one day my pants will be pulled up so high I won’t need a shirt. Just long gloves and a dickie.


  12. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:50 pm:

    “Sir… yes, the model does look life-like, but it’s not him… ‘How do I know?’… the model blinked, ok… “


  13. - anon - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:52 pm:

    #PantsHikeMike


  14. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:52 pm:

    “It was either hike up my pants or not show off my new Buster Browns… “


  15. - Grand Avenue - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:53 pm:

    Madigan’s pants are so high because the young man is giving him a wedgie - that’s why you don’t see his left hand


  16. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:54 pm:

    “… well I heard it’s because belly buttons frighten him so he has to have his covered at all times… “


  17. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:56 pm:

    “Now it makes sense why I saw the Speaker at ‘Big and Tall’… “


  18. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:57 pm:

    “…No, he just stands on an end table and jumps in them. Easier to get them on that way… “


  19. - Norseman - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:57 pm:

    Does this mean we’re pants shaming the Speaker?

    My bad!


  20. - Ron Burgundy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 2:59 pm:

    Pantalones Gigante!


  21. - Responsa - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:01 pm:

    “These are not my pants.” (What I’ve heard is a favorite excuse offered to police when something untoward is found on a suspect.)


  22. - Faker - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:06 pm:

    Rich, your bing news feed on the left side is promoting all the fake newspapers from Liberty Principles PAC. “Rauner calls for political referendums…”


  23. - Bogey Golfer - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:09 pm:

    But is he able to save money by buying his shirts from the boys’ department?


  24. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:11 pm:

    “… and the deep-pockets of Mike Madigan… “


  25. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:12 pm:

    “We call these pants the ‘Pockets to Your Elbows’, business casual… “


  26. - Saluki - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:13 pm:

    pants


  27. - Ahoy! - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:13 pm:

    Madigan teaches a young man that the more powerful you become, the higher your inseam must be.


  28. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:14 pm:

    “If you can’t fit $83 dollars in quarters in each pocket, you get the pants for free…”


  29. - Ron Burgundy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:16 pm:

    Pictured: A Hispanic community leader and Governor Rauner’s piñata.


  30. - Big Muddy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:18 pm:

    “No 32-37 isn’t revenue versus expenses. it’s my pants size! This has all been a big misunderstanding…”


  31. - Anonymous - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:22 pm:

    I wanted a photo with Penn & Teller, but I could not find Penn and Teller would tell me where to find him.


  32. - Anonymous - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:23 pm:

    “See with pants like these, I’m able to sneak out bread from Saputo’s…haven’t bought a loaf in years.”


  33. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:26 pm:

    Hey, let’s do this in front of a futuristic painting of….me.


  34. - VanillaMan - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:26 pm:

    As the speaker aged, the waist of his slacks moved upward, like rings on a tree. By the time he reached his 80th year of life, Mr. Speaker could only converse by unzipping his trouser fly.


  35. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:26 pm:

    I’d switch over to suspenders, but they don’t make ‘em that short.


  36. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:27 pm:

    “The pants, from the Bruce Rauner Costumes collection, are very well made, but can only be bought in one size… “


  37. - VanillaMan - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:27 pm:

    My tailor is Fred Mertz.


  38. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:28 pm:

    And after my last apple of the day, I go home and play Scrabble on my shirt.


  39. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:29 pm:

    My dark pants reveal dandruff.


  40. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:30 pm:

    When I get really ticked, I just bite down on my belt.


  41. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:32 pm:

    Shirts that fit me are hard to find. T-shirts; impossible.


  42. - VanillaMan - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:32 pm:

    Why yes - I DO wear Spanx!
    How could you tell?


  43. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:33 pm:

    “They put their pants on same way we do!”

    Lou Holtz, former Head Coach
    University of Notre Dame


  44. - Huh? - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:34 pm:

    At least I don’t wear costumes to mislead people that I am one of them.


  45. - Huh? - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:35 pm:

    What’s this fascination with my pants? I’m like most people and wear my belt around my waist. It just happens to be higher than average.


  46. - Huh? - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:36 pm:

    Touching the hand of power in Illinois.


  47. - Huh? - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:37 pm:

    Godfather, will you be my friend?


  48. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:37 pm:

    I love this carpet. You can slaughter anything here and it doesn’t show.


  49. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:38 pm:

    As soon as we get this quickie, snappy, selfie; whatever you call it, I’m going back behind the curtain.


  50. - Cubs in '16 - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:41 pm:

    Posing with the newest balloon in the upcoming Macy’s T’giving Day parade…


  51. - West Side The Best Side - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:42 pm:

    Tim Conway’s Little Old Man goes to Springfield.


  52. - Six Degrees of Separation - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:43 pm:

    “Dude, your pants are higher than Cheech Marin!”


  53. - Big Lu - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:45 pm:

    WORK IT, URKEL!


  54. - Anon - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:48 pm:

    “Pants on the ground, pants on the ground.”


  55. - Give Me A Break - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:49 pm:

    Big Lu, you owe me a keyboard. You killed it.


  56. - Big Mike - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:49 pm:

    Michael, you have little hands!!


  57. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:51 pm:

    “When I find the guy that told Mike to put on his big boy pants… “


  58. - Get a Job!! - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:54 pm:

    I like those pants, let me ask you, where do you find a 24″ waist, 40″ inseam?


  59. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:58 pm:

    And the best part of these pants is that they come with footies that look like shoes!


  60. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 3:59 pm:

    Is it kind of funny that not a single person has even inquired as to who the other guy is?


  61. - Railrat - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 4:00 pm:

    I’d ask you to sit Mr. Speaker but I had to sell all the furniture because of your taxation ! But hey “damn glad to meet ya”


  62. - A guy - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 4:01 pm:

    Ok Pilsen is the location;
    Que pasa con estos pantalones?


  63. - Amalia - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 4:13 pm:

    MJM sends Ed Grimley to a meeting.


  64. - Anonymous - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 4:14 pm:

    His pants are “Higher than Corey Haim…”

  65. - Henry Francis - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 4:29 pm:

    I like my policies and governing to be in moderation, but my pant height extreme!!!


  66. - anonymous - Friday, Sep 30, 16 @ 4:31 pm:

    Odd that Rich turned off comments on Munger donation from “Rauner’s pals” but not anywhere else. Could be Rauner has another “bestie.”


  67. - Vato Loco - Monday, Oct 3, 16 @ 7:24 pm:

    He heard that he was meeting with a Hispanic group and he thought “Cholo” pants would help garner support…
