    So you think the voters are the only ones fed up with him ?


  2. - Not Rich - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 12:52 pm:

    I have tried and tried!! Teaching him to use a cell phone is impossible!!


  3. - AFSCME Steward - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 12:53 pm:

    He never listens to anything I say.


  4. - OneMan - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 12:54 pm:

    I don’t see why you are all so afraid of him….


  5. - Give Me A Break - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 12:55 pm:

    Look I’ve tried, but I can’t get it out of Rules either.


  6. - wordslinger - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 12:58 pm:

    …. and then, he just drove away, leaving me in the garage to deal with that Chuck Goudie guy.”


  7. - Ravenswood Right Winger - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 12:58 pm:

    “I tried to get him to give more money to U of I but all I got were these cheesy colored wrist bracelets that teenagers wear.


  8. - lake county democrat - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    Mike: “This is the only person in the state of Illinois who can damage me. I’m closing my eyes until it’s over.”


  9. - Norseman - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    This is how he sings in the shower and I still tell him he can’t get any Arts Council funding for a concert.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    “You got it bad? Really? You try and live with him too, k?”


  11. - DuPage Dave - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:00 pm:

    As long as he’s the Speaker, I’m the Chair and there’s nothing anyone can do about either one.


  12. - I B Strapped - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:01 pm:

    I love my Man, every day, all day. Deal with it!


  13. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:01 pm:

    Ha! I appreciate the suggestion lady, but he hates that, and I gotta live with him.


  14. - Linus - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:01 pm:

    “Then he says, ‘And WHO’s gonna extend the deadline for your bill mandating that husbands take out the garbage? Hmm?’ “


  15. - TCB - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:04 pm:

    I do know one thing, his favorability numbers aren’t any better at home.


  16. - Ahoy! - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:04 pm:

    “What you think I can talk some sense into him?”


  17. - DuPage - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:05 pm:

    “I am voting for him anyway”.


  18. - Kakistocracy Kid - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:05 pm:

    And now my brief discourse on the philosophical difference between Arts and Crafts….szzzzzzzzzz……


  19. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:07 pm:

    And so I finally told her: no way was I going to let him retire. I can’t have him moping around the house all day. Lisa should have asked me before bringing it up. I could have saved her a lot of time and trouble.


  20. - Anonymous always - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:08 pm:

    You have to keep him. I don’t want him sitting around my house.

    MJM: “And all you boneheads thought I was the one who clipped Lisa’s wings”.


  23. - A guy... - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:18 pm:

    Hello there…over here…eyes on me today…he’s just here to move things along once half the members leave for something…then we’ll vote.


  24. - Wensicia - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:22 pm:

    “I’m not kidding! He really doesn’t know how to smile!!”


  25. - CircularFiringSquad - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:28 pm:

    “And then that Capt Fax guy sells some ads, “conducts” a poll and sez some don’t like MJM. Was this the same poll that had Mitt Rauner winning by 20 or did he “conduct” 2 polls?”


  26. - VanillaMan - Monday, Apr 28, 14 @ 1:30 pm:

    I Will Follow Him

    I love him, I love him, I love him
    And where he goes I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow

    I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
    There isn’t an ocean too deep
    A mountain so high it can keep me away

    I must follow him, ever since he touched my hand I knew
    That near him I always must be
    And nothing can keep him from me
    He is my destiny

    I love him, I love him, I love him
    And where he goes I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow
    He’ll always be my true love, my true love, my true love
    From now until forever, forever, forever

    I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
    There isn’t an ocean too deep
    A mountain so high it can keep, keep me away
    Away from my love

    I love him, I love him, I love him
    And where he goes I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow
    He’ll always be my true love, my true love, my true love
    From now until forever, forever, forever

    I will follow him, follow him wherever he may go
    There isn’t an ocean too deep
    A mountain so high it can keep, keep me away
    Away from my love

    Do-do do-do-do do-do-do and where he goes
    I’ll follow, I’ll follow, I’ll follow
    I know I’ll always love him
