    “Is this how we do that fist bump?”


  2. - reformer - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 11:49 am:

    “I’m happy my endorsement last year helped you Barack, even though it’s coming back to haunt me in the GOP prmary.”


  3. - HoosierDaddy - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 11:53 am:

    Ok, Ok, I got one… here’s how to make a Rod Blagojevich shadow puppet!


  4. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 11:54 am:

    B.O. “First, I run for US Senate (snicker, snicker)…”

    Dillard, “Then, oh I dunno, I get Alan Keyes (snicker, snicker)…”

    B.O “Oh yeah, then I run for president! (snicker, snicker)

    Dillard “You, B A R A C K ???? … Yeah, that will work. If you even get that far, (snicker, snicker) ‘Vote for Barack, I endorse him! (snicker, snicker) …”

    B.O “Too funny, ok catch you after Pate blows his top.”

    Dillard “See you later Mr. President. (snicker, snicker) …”

    B.O. “I am even endorsed by a republican (snicker, snicker) …. See ya Dillard.”

    Dillard “Vote for Barack! …(laugh)”

    Dillard: That’s a great joke Barack. Tell it to me again so I can remember it.

    Barack: Okay, so Oberwies, Jack Ryan and Alan Keyes are sitting in a bar . . .


  6. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 11:57 am:

    Actually, Oswego Willy, that’s probably exactly how it went down. lol

    Thanks for the chuckle.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 12:00 pm:

    Reality is always better/funnier than fiction …


  8. - Jake from Elwood - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 12:18 pm:

    At first glance, I thought it was a picture of Pres. Obama and Sen. Durbin. W-O-W

    Dealmakers In The Night - “Strangers In The Night”, Kaempfert, enhanced by VanillaMan

    Sing it, “Chairman of the Board”!

    Dealmakers in the night, exchanging glances
    Wondering in the night
    What were the chances they’d be Big Players
    Before their careers were through.

    Something in their deals were so inviting,
    Somehow each knew how it’ll feel, it was exciting,
    Something in their poll numbers,
    Told them to push the deal on through.

    Dealmakers in the night, two ambitious people
    They were dealmakers in the night
    Up to the moment
    When they said their first hello.
    Little did they know
    Political power was comin their way,
    Bi-partisan endorsements timed a certain way

    Ever since that deal, they’ve been winners.
    Anything they could steal, as happy sinners.
    It turned out so right,
    For dealmakers in the night.


  10. - Mitch C - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 12:48 pm:

    KD: “So, get this, I’m going to run for Governor…. as a Republican… ha, ha, ha, ha…”


  11. - Downstate GOP Faithless - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 12:58 pm:

    DILLARD: Man, if Madigan’s kid were here, we could be a juggernaut.

    OBAMA: Yea, she’s much better than that Birkett dude…

    DILLARD: I hear that!


  12. - Third Generation Chicago Native - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 12:59 pm:

    Obama: “I know who else is going to jump into the Senate race, it’s David Hoffman”

    Dillard: “The guy whose bright idea was the Chicago Parking lease?”


  13. - Anon - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 1:00 pm:

    “Sure, you’ve got a chance. See, I thought Rod was going to appoint himself to my senate seat,so I loosened the bolts on it. Then Roland sat in it and fell over, and he thinks Dick did it. So, come late October, he’s gonna release some photoshopped pictures of Dick and Rod counting cash together!”


  14. - Speaking At Will - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 1:01 pm:

    Obama. “Yeah, your a republican!”


  15. - Down the Middle - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 1:13 pm:

    Dillard…quit sneezing all over me.


  16. - Down the Middle - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 1:37 pm:

    By the way–I’d love to see who’s been cropped out of that picture.


  17. - Wumpus - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 1:37 pm:

    Oswego Willy, I thought that was from VMan..too funny.


  18. - Peoria Joe - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 2:48 pm:

    “So, you’ll pay me 1 penny EVERY TIME that Obama TV commercial runs, with my endorsement quote? WOOO, I’ll be rich!”


  19. - Just wondering - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 3:38 pm:

    KD: Oh that was just my Halloween ghost costume.


  20. - getmeoutofhere - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 4:45 pm:

    KD-Remember how Hynes beatt you up in the Senate race?
    BO- Yep
    remember the heat I took in your presidential race?
    BO- Yep
    KD- Do you want me to write your endorsement of me or will David do it?


  21. - Beowulf - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 5:31 pm:

    Kirk: Now, about that reciprocation for the video commercial that I made for you when you were running for President. I believe your exact words back then were, “I’ll owe you man.” Remember Barack you said , if I scratch your back you will scratch mine? I was thinking that maybe you could make a few phone calls back to Springfield for me and perhaps a video of the two of us with you endorsing me for governor?

    Barack: Ha-ha-ha-ha NO!


  22. - Steve - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 5:47 pm:

    Barack , I’m not only a RINO : I look like one.


  23. - I really shouldn't - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 5:50 pm:

    “So is your first step going to be challenging Hillary’s petitions?


  24. - the down state observer - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 6:10 pm:

    Stop laughing …I know it sounds crazy Barrack ?? But…seriously I really am running for governor !


  25. - Boone Logan Square - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 6:25 pm:

    Yeah, it is hilarious to think the Illinois Republican party would nominate me for statewide office.


  26. - Joe from Joliet - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 6:26 pm:

    Brady thinks he win the Rep primary for governor.


  27. - Northside Bunker - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 6:58 pm:

    The Chicago Way, they’ll never catch us…..LOL!


  28. - Funny - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 9:35 pm:

    Rich, the original picture (uncropped) might make for even funnier captions….not that some of the above aren’t hilarious.

  29. - wordslinger - Thursday, Aug 27, 09 @ 11:37 pm:

    D: “Like anyone would care if I did a TV spot for you!”


  30. - Toot - Friday, Aug 28, 09 @ 7:31 am:

    (Dillard using sign language short hand so that fellow Republicans cannot see his outward expression of emotion) … Dillard signs..”I love you”.


  31. - Fed Up - Friday, Aug 28, 09 @ 8:26 am:

    “then Blagojevich says to Burris, I think you’d make a great Senator”.


  32. - SouthernIL - Friday, Aug 28, 09 @ 9:00 am:

    KD: “No, really, Barack….I need your endorsement”. “You know….that crossing the aisle, working with the other side thing”. Yep…paybacks are a … - hard!


  33. - Black Ivy - Friday, Aug 28, 09 @ 1:02 pm:

    VILE!


  34. - Anonymous - Friday, Aug 28, 09 @ 2:29 pm:

    “Yeah, so I told ‘em I was for you before I was against you for President…And they believed me! This flip flopping stuff is working for me every time!”


  35. - Ahem...the REAL Anonymous - Friday, Aug 28, 09 @ 4:01 pm:

    I really need to come up with a new handle.
