  6. - dupage dan - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 2:53 pm:

    Hey, I just realized I look like that actor guy, you know, Jay Sanders. That’s cool, especially when I cross my arms like this.


  7. - in absentia - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 2:55 pm:

    AFSCME wants WHAT????


  8. - Waiting for November - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 2:56 pm:

    Brady meets with acting coach to learn how to be “act” more serious.

    Brady, “I’m serious about being serious, seriously!”

    So, Brady, what’s the plan?


  10. - rawrddd - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 2:57 pm:

    Young voters? I can get them! I’ll go on TV and do the Macarena, that is still cool, right?


  11. - Davey Boy Smithe - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 2:58 pm:

    I’ll do 12 different poses like this. We’ll sell Gov Brady At Work calendars, and that will solve the deficit.
    (The Lady): YEAH!


  12. - Wensicia - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 2:58 pm:

    Brady: I don’t have to tell you the plan..SO THERE!

  15. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:04 pm:

    “Let me tell you one more thing BILL Brady … you keep my Jason up past 9:30 on a school night again, and he is NOT going to play that ‘Lt. Major thingy’ you and his Daddy want him to play. You should have seen him stare into his Lucky Charms, reading his comics this morning … broke my heart … You hear me!!!”


  16. - View from the Cheap Seats - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:05 pm:

    Plummer - wake up. It’s noon.


  17. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:06 pm:

    I was gonna do a Plummer’s mom reference, but I thought I’d wait a few minutes because OW would surely take care of it. Glad to know I wasn’t wrong. lol


  18. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:07 pm:

    Too easy Rich … Too easy!


  19. - Responsa - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:08 pm:

    Now watch! After *this* pose Molly Shannon always went…..


  20. - ToddAF - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:09 pm:

    “No! Wrong! How many times do I have to tell you, Senator Brady? It’s right arm outside, left arm inside. And you need to glower more. Right now, you just look confused!”


  21. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:09 pm:

    “Jason, you tell Mr. Brady you’re sorry for making Origami out of his polling data young man! He is kind enough to have you around, so you just walk right over here and say you are sorry to Mr. Brady … NOW MISTER!”


  22. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:14 pm:

    “Bill Brady, was it your idea to send my baby boy Jason to Chicago and talk to evil Phil Ponce? He’s just a kid and you sent him to the wolves … unarmed, like a baby deer during hunting season … was it you Bill … or was it … JERRY!?!?!?!?!?”


  23. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:15 pm:

    However, it is starting to make me a bit uncomfortable.


  24. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:17 pm:

    Think that is all I got … but enjoyed the chuckle


  25. - kappakid - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:17 pm:

    I will most certainly NOT pose like Scott Brown.


  26. - bored as hell - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:19 pm:

    “WHAT did you just say to me?”
    “Submit to me…”


  27. - My Opinion - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:21 pm:

    “You come up with an idea for the budget right now Mister! The press isn’t going to let you off the hook forever. Eventually Pat will shut up like you have for the last 9 months and then what will you do?!” Brady-”I don’t want to and you can’t make me!”


  28. - phocion - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:24 pm:

  29. - Doug Dobmeyer - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:27 pm:

    I told you I wanted steak for dinner. If you can’t do what I tell you to do, how are you going to run Illinois?


  30. - 618er - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:32 pm:

    Awe Mom, I don’t want to give it to the food shelter, even if it’s a tax deduction. It’s not like its a 911 GT2. It’s a boxter for Pete’s sake, half the people in town drive more expensive cars.


  31. - vole - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:34 pm:

    “Senator, I mean Governor, are you sure that if we stare at this deficit long enough that it will just go away? I mean we tried the 10% cuts. We eliminated the gas tax. We reduced taxes on businesses. Governor, how long do we have to keep staring at these horrible numbers!!!???”


  32. - 618er - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:36 pm:

    Dangit
    That one should have been give it to Meals on Wheels, not give it to the food shelter.


  33. - Thomas Westgard - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:38 pm:

    “Yes, I DO use a lot of toilet paper, and no you CAN’T substitute that cheap stuff if I’m going to have any chance of winning this campaign.”


  34. - A.B. - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:39 pm:

    I don’t care who you are, you ALWAYS put the toilet seat down! Do you know what it is like when your bum hits dirty toilet water?


  35. - Irish - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:39 pm:

    BB - “There! I think this pose will be the one I use for my portrait as Governor.”

    Acting Coach - ” No you Jamoke! You cross your arms the other way! Like this!”


  36. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:42 pm:

    “William, when I worked with Larry Oliviet, I told him ‘Stare but don’t look past anyone. Focus, but don’t look confused’ … so work on this …Now …. hold this …(Yelling) … AS I TRY TO BREAK YOUR CONCENTRATION …”


  37. - anon - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:43 pm:

  41. - Soooo... - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:50 pm:

    “What’s she doing now? Is She…? Yeah, she is still mocking me isn’t she. Well it is pretty easy to do.”


  42. - Larry Mullholland - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 3:50 pm:

    Set up; 119th day on the road for Brady. After a long beginning to a long story; Aunt Louise said, “So then, at the pancake breakfast June-Ann said to Mary Ellen, Dear, What we need in Illinois is a change. Then I said….

  51. - chicago 7 - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 4:09 pm:

    “No, no, Senator. You’re still not doing it right. Watch me and do it just like this: fold your arms, shake your head, glower, and say it like this: HRUMPH! Got it? OK, try it again.”


  52. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 4:10 pm:

  57. - LincolnLounger - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 4:31 pm:

    They told me only a genie could help me balance Illinois’ budget, so let’s see if I can get into that bottle.


  58. - Corduroy Bob - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 4:54 pm:

  65. - Little Lulu - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 7:25 pm:

    Sen. Bill Brady and supporter…upon learning that Rich Miller neglected to announce a winner from his running mate’s caption contest. “I mean, if you’re going to have a contest, there should be a winner. And, frankly, I had some gems in there. But, seriously, it’s like if Gov. Tax it All and I debated for months and months and there was never an election. Although that is intriguing because then I wouldn’t have to announce my budget plan…ever. But, no, it’s not right. And who knows how Kwame feels. I mean, I never met the man, but I heard he serves in the Senate. Whatever. Rich Miller…who is this guy?”

    Supporter: “Hey Senator, I know you’re paying all of us here to look angry about the caption contest…but is there a chance I could get the same amount of $ as the fellas? I am actually in the photo, you know.”


  66. - wordslinger - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 7:44 pm:

  68. - Pot calling kettle - Tuesday, Sep 28, 10 @ 7:55 pm:

    “After you promise to lower taxes, not cut anyone’s favorite programs, and not raise taxes, you cross your arms and look away from the press until they leave…Good! You’ve got it down perfect.”
