* I know it’s late on a Friday, but how could we pass up this pic of our first and second place Golden Horseshoe winners for Best House Democrat? Plus, it’s getting a bit stale in comments…

Better hurry, though, because I’m shutting down for the weekend at 4:30.

  5. - Bored Chairman - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:34 pm:

    “I do.”


  6. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:34 pm:

    MJM: Greg, I’m not going anywhere, it’s just a picture, not a passing of the gavel.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:35 pm:

    Winner. Well done!

  9. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:38 pm:

    “Representative, may I assume we are of the same mind on the matter of pensions as well?”

    American Gothic gone terribly wrong!

    this is one of those pictures you pose for when you’re a 40 year incumbent.


  14. - A guy... - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:42 pm:

    I thought Brown made it clear, “nobody touches me”.

    The Odd Couple Tie the Knot on Marriage Equality

    Out of the Closet: Madigan Sheds Social Conservative Facade

    And as a side thought, how about Heir Apparent?

    If Madigan can work quietly behind the scenes to help pass progressive legislation, can’t a progressive like Harris work quietly behind the scenes to ensure fiscal restraint if selected Speaker? In passing Marriage Equality, Harris has shown that he has atleast some of the necessary skillset. Not sure if he has the ambition though.


  18. - A guy... - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:46 pm:

    The wardrobe is deceiving here. Straight guys don’t usually win this kind of competition. HMMMjM.

  24. - A guy... - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:51 pm:

    Let me get back to you on being the Marshall of the Parade.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:51 pm:

    (MJM & Greg BOTH thinking this at the same time…)

    “Stick with me and you will go far.”


  26. - Wordslinger - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 3:53 pm:

  47. - A guy... - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 4:20 pm:

    Sorry gang, Even I’m getting a little loopy looking at my own entries. Just took the “comments getting stale” comment very seriously. Have a great weekend!


  48. - Wordslinger - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 4:20 pm:

    With mugs like those, they might persuade some to change votes, but never teams.


  49. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Dec 20, 13 @ 4:21 pm:

    “Counting votes… Definitely, defiantly counting votes with State Rep. Harris, definitely…”

    Now, you may join the Dems, my friend,
    And I may join the GOP;
    And other men may carry cards
    As members of the “Whiners”.

    Still others have a Golden “Shoe”
    Or small Greek letter pin;
    But I have learned there’s one great club
    That all of us are in.

    There is a Brotherhood of Man,
    A Benevolent Brotherhood of Man,
    A noble tie that binds
    All human hearts and minds
    Into one Brotherhood of Man.

    Your lifelong membership is free.
    Keep agivin’ each brother all you can.
    Oh aren’t you proud to be
    In that fraternity,
    The great big Brotherhood of Man?

    So, Mikey, before you consider dumping everybody, remember this:

    One Mushroom seems incompetent,
    Another not make sense,
    While others look like quite a waste
    Of company expense.

    They need a brother’s leadership,
    So please don’t do them in.
    Remember mediocrity
    Is not a mortal sin.

    They’re in the Brotherhood of Man,
    Dedicated to giving all we can.
    Oh, aren’t you proud to be
    In that fraternity,
    The great big Brotherhood of Man?

    You, you got me;
    Me, I got you, you!

    Oh, that noble feeling,
    Feels like bells are pealing,
    Down with double-dealing,
    Oh Brother!

    You, you got me;
    Me, I got you, you!

    Your lifelong membership is free.
    Keep agivin’ each brother all you can.
    Oh aren’t you proud to be
    In that fraternity,
    The great big Brotherhood of Man?
