* I’m sure you know this already

The Illinois Republican Party State Central Committee on Saturday elected Cook County Commissioner Tim Schneider as its chairman.

Schneider, who was unanimously elected to a four-year term as the Illinois Republican Party’s chairman, replaces Jack Dorgan, who held the position since June and was named co-chair of GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner’s finance committee last week.

Schneider, a small business owner from Bartlett, has been a Cook County commissioner for the 15th district since 2007.

Little is known about Schneider’s view on social issues, and there aren’t that many pictures of him on the Internet, so this Facebook pic, of Schneider standing between ousted GOP Chairman Pat Brady and state Sen. Matt Murphy, will have to do. Let’s welcome Chairman Schneider, shall we?…

    Do you guys think I look like Jim Edgar?


  2. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:00 pm:

    Pat Brady: Then I told to Oberweis, “you get that torch too close to that ice cream your serving, there’s no Slytherin spell to make it unmelt that quick…”


  3. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:02 pm:

    Pat Brady: No, the funny thing was, we celebrated Oberweis leaving the SCC with his ice cream. How great was that?


  4. - Rich Miller - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:04 pm:

    To himself: One day…

    Who are you giving your property tax appeals business to?


  6. - anonfred - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:05 pm:

    Pat Brady then said “Let’s focus on real stuff, not just pander with social issues, the electorate is too smart for that.” Then Schneider laughed.


  7. - lake county democrat - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:06 pm:

    “Please always remember, and don’t ever forget…” (come on, the guy is a ringer for Schneider from “One Day at a Time” http://www.sitcomsonline.com/photopost/showfull.php?photo=107141 )


  8. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:06 pm:

    Tim Schneider: My goodness, just smile and nod. If I sound this insane after being party chair…yikes, smile… just smile …


  9. - Walker - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:07 pm:

    Brady: “Murphy you talk. Tim keep smiling no matter what he says.”


  10. - Responsa - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:08 pm:

    Tim: “Ha ha. Sure glad we got that rumor that I’m related to Brad Schneider all cleared up.”


  11. - William j Kelly - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:11 pm:

    Brady:If you do half as well as I did Hilary will be president! Snider:Ya think?! Brady:I do! I do! Snider:Gee wiz!


  12. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:11 pm:

    Tim Schneider: Forget it. Just forget it. He called you ‘Tom’, so what…smile…’Tom’, I don’t even look like a ‘Tom’… I should just smile here, bide my time and say, ‘Bill, I’ve always been a fan’…then say, ’sorry, “Dan “, sorry… Calls me ‘Tom’, can’t believe that. I’m pretty well known, picture everywhere… then Brady calls me ‘Tom’… Keep smiling, don’t look upset …


  13. - A guy... - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:12 pm:

    Ah, what the heck, maybe the 3 of us can get married and shock everyone.


  14. - Almost the Weekend - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:15 pm:

    Schneider: Let me check with Bruce if I’m allowed to out tonight, but throwing Dairy Queen ice cream at Oberweis’ Cadillac sure sounds like fun.


  15. - fed up - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:19 pm:

    Remember, just Like Berrios says, Hire family first, second and third then try and find someone, that knows someone, that is kinda qualified.


  16. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:21 pm:

    PB: As party chair, Tim, you get 3% of all the “Fire Madigan” merchandise, and given what Senator Murphy figured, that could mean an extra $3.18 for you, after taxes…


  17. - William j Kelly - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:27 pm:

    Brady: and then McKenna and I told this guy to be lieutenant governor, ha ha and boy was he happy for a while! Murphy: ya ya ya I re re re memb memb member remember!


  18. - Mittuns - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:28 pm:

    Superminority today. Superminority tomorrow. Superminority forever.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:31 pm:

    PB: Matt, you told Tim the Party’s bloke right? I mean, like financially broke, like no validating parking broke…


  20. - Mittuns - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:33 pm:

    Sen Murphy and Chairman Schneider anxiously await the secret ingredient of Brady’s infamous tuna salad recipe.


  21. - William j Kelly - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:35 pm:

    Murphy: burp


  22. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:36 pm:

    PB: Matt, when you see Oberweis in the Senate next week, tell him Tim and I are looking forward to him in the US Senate come January. He won’t believe or understand it, but it will make him think…


  23. - Nonplussed - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:42 pm:

    “Illinois GOP, the party of inclusion”


  24. - NewWestSuburbanGOP'er - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 3:43 pm:

  33. - William j Kelly - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 4:41 pm:

    Brady:when we say the pledge I’m going to change the words to I pledge allegiance to Bruce Ruaners wallet! Murphy: and then I’ll say to Bruce Rauners wallet for which I stand! Brady: and then I’ll say to Bruce Rauner’s wallet indivisible with liberty and justice to all! Murphy: do you think he’ll like that? Brady: of course he will just like McKenna, right? Murphy: right! just like McKenna! Ha ha ha!

    ” Chairman Schneider tolerates the moment by forming a mental picture of Pat Brady cruising in “Nellie Belle” and Matt “Guitar” Murphy playing both kinds of music”


  38. - wordslinger - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 5:47 pm:

    “Okay, Fire Madigan didn’t work. How about this? Some of our best friends are super-minorities!”

  42. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 7:25 pm:

    PB: So Bruce told me, “Whoever I pick, they win a Cadillac, runner-up gets a set of steak knives, and whoever is third on the list should be fired!”


  43. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 7:26 pm:

    PB: After I ruled you out, Sen. Murphy, I knew straight away; Jack Dorgan stole the Frozen Strawberries…


  44. - Oswego Willy - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 7:32 pm:

    PB: So I am staring, face to face with Jim Oberweis, and I’m scared, not gonna lie, but then, I conger up the Patronus Charm, to stave off Oberweis, in the shape of a RINO, ironically…


  45. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 8:03 pm:

    Schneider: Well, I thought it might look kind of phony to wear my Carhartt jacket in public, so I stuck this yellow sticker over the logo. Cool, huh?


  46. - Come one man! - Monday, May 19, 14 @ 8:05 pm:

    The Republican Party celebrating their diverse party: Rich White Guys who are fine with social issues and Rich White Guys not fine with social issues.


  47. - PublicServant - Tuesday, May 20, 14 @ 7:03 am:

    That smile better be your last Tim. We need to show we’re serious about “bringing back Illinois” and “shaking up Springfield”, and smiles don’t convey that “Seriousity”. Now let’s practice a sneer…ok, now a scowl…good. Now state a bad fact about Illinois followed by “under Pat Quinn’s failed tenure as Governor”…perfect. You’re hired. Now go gripe to some cameras…Oh, one other thing. If they ask you how, just say Bruce will be fleshing that out soon…OK, let’s hit the links with Tom.
