* From the Twitters…


If you look closely, he’s wearing a Super Bowl XLIII t-shirt while he grills. The Pittsburgh Steelers played in Super Bowl XLIII. Rauner owns part of the Steelers team.

Have fun.

    “No, these aren’t steaks! They’re just really thick…hamburgers. Yeah, hamburgers. With bones. That’s the ticket.”

    “Make sure you get my $17 watch in the picture. “

    Yep, looks like the average multi-millionaire to me. “As you can readily see, Mr. Quinn.I am practicing removing the fat from the pork before I get down to Springfield.”


  4. - PublicServant - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:07 am:

    After eating the chicken, this is all we had left.

    “Oh Reginald, these tongee things are burning my hand. Come back to the grill and finish my steaks. And here’s your watch back.”

    “OK. Picture done? Good. Take over, Jeeves, and remember medium rare this time. Chop chop!”

    Also note the crumbling infrastructure by his feet. His Summer Shack #8 appears to be in need of some repair.

    Must be hard to choose which one of his 9 homes he wants to celebrate the 4th at.

    “Rich, I got the t-shirt with my subscription to SI…”

    “Caption?”

    “You sure the Carhartt would be too much? How about one with the Carhartt, one without?”


  9. - OneMan - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:12 am:

    The Quinn campaign quickly released it’s own photo showing the governor grilling soy patties, because everyone knows how much he loves good Illinois soy, raised by Illinois farmers good a true.

    I can smell the meat-a-cookin, Steelers boy!

    They can really do terrific things with veggie burgers these days. These look just like bone-in Rib Eye!


  14. - hisgirlfriday - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:14 am:

    Is that a pool in the background too?


  15. - lake county democrat - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:15 am:

    Inspired by OneMan:

    The Quinn campaign immediately anounced plans to put a fillet mignon tax referendum on the ballot. “This is an important question for the people of Illinois to opine on. Gerrymandering their vote into meaninglessness and refusing to hear their 60-15% desire on term limits can wait until, well, forever.”


  16. - politics junkie - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:15 am:

    Barring unforseen circumstances, I am going to be Illinois’ next Governor.


  17. - Anonymous - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:16 am:

    Quinn was going to attempt a similar picture, but couldn’t find his grill under all the weeds in his yard

    Rauner says “Steaks from prime Illinois beef, fed with Illinois corn, gas grill uses Illinois natural gas, and grilling utensils purchased from a local Illinois store. Goodness, I love Illinois.”


  21. - veritas - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:22 am:

    He paid Ed Rendell $300K for the shirt and I notice that isn’t chicken on the grill - it looks like pork!! Who got the chickens??


  22. - Wensicia - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:22 am:

    “I’ll have you know these prime rib steaks were flown in from Texas, yesterday, on Griffin’s plane.
    I did not use taxpayer funded transportation!”


  23. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:23 am:

    “I love the Steelers so much, I became part owner!”

    Rauner Crew, seriously, you have to be some of the most inept buffoons.

    You put your Principle in shorts and a t-shirt to seem ordinary, and not one of you Dopes think a t-shirt can remind people he is in the “.01%”, except THAT one?

    Are you guys in that Crew even trying anymore?

    I would have loved a Red Sox hat on too, with a Nulls championship ring on his hand, you know, casual, ball cap, t-shirt, modest jewelry. Next tome put a “Payton Prep Dad” t-shirt on if you want to just straight out mock people.

    Pathetic.

    “Caption?”

    “No, the lobsters go on after the phony photo is tweeted.”


  24. - zatoichi - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:25 am:

    Three small pieces of meat for a grill? No one coming over? That gas even on? At least put some PBR cans in the picture, get some ribs/pork steaks going, and get a Card’s cap.


  25. - Ron Burgundy - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:31 am:

    To consultant off camera holding Bears t-shirt and package of Johnsonvilles:

    “Let me get this straight, you want me to wear the apparel of a team I DON’T EVEN OWN, and eat GROUND MEAT OUT FROM THE SUPERMARKET? How droll…”


  26. - Mittuns - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:32 am:

    Those steaks look an awful like A5 Kobe Strip Steaks, a cut which is about $160 per pound. Confirmation?

    Also, is that an Olympic size pool in the background?


  27. - A guy... - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:38 am:

    I name my food. “Time to flip Quinn and Vallas”.


  28. - Jaws - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:39 am:

    Willy, there are a lot of Steelers fans in Illinois. You’re really reaching with that last rant.


  29. - Soccermom - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:40 am:

    You’re right — I don’t think that grill is even lit. Aw, geez….

    ===Willy, there are a lot of Steelers fans in Illinois. You’re really reaching with that last rant.===

    …that own a piece of the Steelers too, that market themselves as a Carhartt wearin’ Harley ridin’ See-Gar chompin’ ordinary Steeler fan?

    Yikes. This was Dopey by Rauner’s Crew.

    “Caption?”

    “Excuse me, do ‘we’ have any Grey Poupon?”


  35. - Ghost - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:59 am:

    This chicken, just like Quinn, was cooked and done on the 4th of July.


  36. - Shark Sandwich - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 10:59 am:

    Those “steaks” look an awful lot like pork chops.

    It’s a bad photo, looks unnatural and staged, but I imagine that’s because he is mugging for the camera and it is staged. You can’t fake practiced comfort with the tongs, you’ve either done the time with them or you haven’t.

    Caption: “I’m here to shake up springfield by grilling out the other white meat - pork barrel spending on flying chickens..”


  37. - Been There - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 11:06 am:

    ===Willy, there are a lot of Steelers fans in Illinois. You’re really reaching with that last rant. ====
    Actually I agree with you about the number of Steeler fans. But I believe there would be a tad few more Bear fans that are not impressed.


  38. - crazybleedingheart - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 11:08 am:

    Pushed right up against the wall, under the eave, in front of a window, like a real guy who obviously really does this all the time.

    Oh well, I’m sure the Dwelling 8 poolhouse is insured.


  39. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 11:10 am:

    “Yes, Mr. Rauner, back again. I need to take some shots of you grilling…’grillin’…yes sir. No, no stuffed dogs again… You’re grillin’, you don’t need the dogs sir. …Can we take off the Carhartt too?…, it’s summer, Mr. Rauner… I know it’s your trademark… Ok, so what are we grillin’?… No lobsters…No… I brought some prop grilled meat.., does it matter…you aren’t eating it, so I don’t know how the quality is… Grab the tongs… No…no…not those…there….there… Over. There! Those! …yes…. Through your fingers …yep…what’s that? … No Harley by the grill…’Why?’, who has a Harley by their backyard grill? …No, no Harley.., yep, just stand like that… yes…just like that… No. Dogs! … Just stand there … (click, click…click)…ok, happy 4th sir…”


  40. - wordslinger - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 11:15 am:

    It is a funky spot for a gas grill. I’m guessing it was moved from the pool area for the shot.

    Meh, many Bears fans, including me, rooted for the Steelers as their “AFC Team”, especially during the Bill Cowher years. It’s not like he’s wearing a Packers shirt


  46. - Cheswick - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 11:48 am:

    You guys really going to vote for someone who can’t even fake a good grilling picture? The grill is too close to the house to be safe, those tongs are for salad, not flipping hot stuff.

    If this is real, I’d have to question his sanity.


  54. - Anonymous - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 1:23 pm:

    I grill my steaks because Charlie Trotter can no longer grill my steaks.

    I like my steaks tartare.

  62. - VanillaMan - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 2:26 pm:

    The two gubernatorial candidates issued press photos for this July 4th this weekend.

    The Rauner campaign issued a photo of Mr. Rauner wearing a Pittsburg Steelers t-shirt, grilling steaks over a flameless grill.

    Governor Quinn issued a photo of the Mr. Quinn shirtless and sporting a marijuana leaf tattoo.

    EDITORS CORRECTION - The Governor’s tattoo is not of a marijuana leaf, but of an Irish four-leaf clover, covered in back hair.

    …my 401(k) plan for state workers

    Upon further review, this photo gets funnier and funnier.

    Dude, stop blocking the door with the grill. Get it away from the side of the house. You’re a fire hazard.

    Move it back by the pool, get some chairs and a table with an umbrella. It will be nice.

    And if you’re really chillin’ with the family, three chops probably ain’t gonna cut it.

    Geez, who sets up this stuff? If you really think it’s necessary to create these fictions, put in an effort.


  78. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Jul 7, 14 @ 7:21 pm:

    Here are some realities…

    If you have to stage being ordinary, you aren’t.

    If your staff can’t recognize a failed staging, they aren’t that good.

    If you are looking to seem normal, a Super Bowl t-shirt of a team you own, out of all the t-shirts to wear is a fail…

    … and reminding people you own multiple professional teams subliminally is a Staff fail and a personal fail of consciousness.

    Learn to count. How many pieces for that grill are needed to look pathetic? We now know it’s 3

    Bruce Rauner, your Crew is failing you.

    Chickens, staged photos, lack of Oppo research on yourself…money covers all sins, but at done point, when you aren’t genuine, you just aren’t.

    Be yourself. Otherwise, this Dopey picture is a clear image fail, and as phony as the fire grillin’ those …”meats”.

    Pathetic.

By the way, somebody tell me, please, WHAT’S the name of that LOcal “Pride and Joy of Illinois” Football Team again…?!”
