    Hey Chad! Your chances look Grimm.


  22. - Nonplussed - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:27 pm:

  32. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:38 pm:

    ===- Casual Observer - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:30 pm

    “So Chad, tell me about your family”.===

    Leader in the Clubhouse! Well done.

    Grimm - “Hello ‘ointment’, meet ‘fly’…”

    Grimm - “I see your armed henchmen are here too.”


  33. - Gooner - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:38 pm:

    Hey, a gathering of conservatives resulted in a photo of three white males.

    How rare.


  34. - Black Ivy - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:43 pm:

    Rauner: Young man, if you join my team, we can save the state together. Let’s get to work.

    Grimm: (Mulling the offer over). Oh, I am not running to actually win; I am running to serve as spoiler to ensure Governor Quinn’s re-election. I got all the money I need from a variety of union bosses, so I’m good.


  35. - Team Sleep - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:44 pm:

    “Hey, Chad, remind me again how much Libertarians support organized labor…”

  37. - ??? - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:53 pm:

    Rauner: Grimm, let me tell you, if you are the reason I lose this election, I’ll show people what a REAL “Hanging Chad” looks like.

    (Sorry for the violent imagery; if this comment gets deleted because it violates Cap Fax rule, I understand)


  38. - ? of my day - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 2:59 pm:

    The Bruce: “I took out Schock, Rutherford, Dillard and had Quinn too, spent a fortune, but then came you Grimm…and it all went to hell.”
    The Grimm: “It’s a funny thing, this money and democracy thing.”
    The Bruce: “I will break you.”
    The Grimm: “You cannot, my +/-,3.5% has already broken you.”


  39. - garlic bread - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:00 pm:

    I hope for Grimm’s sake GTCR doesn’t own a stake in Gold’s Gym.


  40. - Bob Hicks - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:03 pm:

    Hi Dad, good to see you.


  41. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:03 pm:

    Leave the cannoli, take the hand.


  42. - Downstate Libertarian - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:05 pm:

    @Team Sleep: Actually, Libertarians are not anti-union. Per the LP platform: “We support the right of private employers and employees to choose whether or not to bargain with each other through a labor union. Bargaining should be free of government interference, such as compulsory arbitration or imposing an obligation to bargain.”


  43. - tominchicago - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:06 pm:

    I am just hoping that Black Ivy was going for irony with that post.


  44. - tominchicago - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:08 pm:

    “I will bury you Chad… I will bankrupt you with legal fees. I don’t know if you have a family or not but if you do you better think twice about this.”


  45. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:09 pm:

    “I have ‘Slip and Sue’, you wanna trade?”


  46. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:10 pm:

    Grimm! I thought you cashed the check. You cashed the check, right?”


  47. - MrJM - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:18 pm:

    “I thought I hired some gunmen to take care of you…”

    – MrJM


  48. - RoPo Ranger - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:20 pm:

    Hey Bruce! How’s it going Downstate?


  49. - Commonsense in Illinois - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:27 pm:

    Chad…sorry, didn’t catch your last name…


  50. - Pete - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:30 pm:

    Where’s the Carhart?


  51. - admin - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:30 pm:

    Inside Rauner’s head: Just wait until after the election, you little jerk.


  52. - railrat - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:31 pm:

    Chad I look forward to reading about you making your health club workers union members !


  53. - wayward - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:45 pm:

    The future of Illinois is Grimm.


  54. - Anonymous - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:52 pm:

    Chad: “I’m gonna get my butt kicked ain’t I….”

    Other Guy: “Count on it Skippy”


  55. - Anon. - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 3:54 pm:

    Both: You gotta drop out or you’ll split the anti Quinn vote and he’ll win!

    Both: Jinx!

    (Just thought I would raise the maturity level of the gubernatorial campaign a little).


  56. - the koala - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 4:03 pm:

    A day before Halloween, Rauner meets the Grimm Reaper


  57. - zatoichi - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 4:06 pm:

    Professional hand wrestling matches always start with the eye ball stare.


  58. - Wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 4:48 pm:

    “Never bring a gun to a petition fight.”


  59. - Joe Blow - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 5:36 pm:

    Grimm - I’m only doing because Quinn promised me a political hack job.


  60. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:21 pm:

    BR: “You’ll never circulate petitions with that hand again.”
    CG: “And you’ll never button another Carhartt with yours.”


  61. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:22 pm:

    BR: “Chad? What kinda name is Chad? Like in ‘hanging chad’?”
    CG: “We’ll see on election day, Mr. Moneypants.”


  62. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:24 pm:

    BR: “Nice scruffy beard. Grow it to get the Millennial vote?”
    CG: “Nice pink ribbon. Think it’s going to fool any women at all, including your wife?”


  63. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:25 pm:

    BR: “My necktie is at the cleaners, along with my Carhartt.”

    CG: “Looks like your toupee is, too.”


  64. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:26 pm:

  65. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:28 pm:

    BR: “Have you seen Carol Marin?”

    CG: “She works at NBC, you maroon.”


  66. - Stoic the Vast - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:30 pm:

    CG: Hi Bruce. Blair Hull called and asked which of the nine houses he should send the “I blew $25,000,000+ of my own money on a vanity campaign” sympathy card on Wednesday morning.


  67. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:30 pm:

    BR: “I wish you all the best–NOT!”

    CG: “All I need is a lousy 3 percent. Ha!”


  68. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:34 pm:

    BR: “Libertarian? How can you run for Illinois governor when you come from that country in Africa?”

    CG: “That’s LIBERIAN, you goon.”


  69. - Wordslinger - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:41 pm:

    Streator, I think you’re on to something.

    What Rauner proposed the other day was barring all Libertarians from Illinois, not Liberians.

    And he’s got the pistoleros for the job on the payroll already.


  70. - walker - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 7:46 pm:

    “I cannot be bought.”


  71. - Stoic the Vast - Thursday, Oct 30, 14 @ 8:42 pm:
