“President Cullerton, would you support similar legislation proposed by the governor? Which would you choose?”
JC : But it’s so simple. All I have to do is divine from what I know of Governor is he the sort of man who would put the poison pill into his own legislation or not? Now, a clever man would NOT put the poison pill his own legislation, because he would know that only a great fool would vote for what he was given. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not choose the bill proposed by the Governor. But the governor must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the bill I am proposing. He’ll veto it.
“So have you decided which bill to run?”
JC: Not remotely. Because some of Rauner’s staff comes from Indiana, as everyone knows, and Indiana is entirely governed by Republicans, and Republicans are used to having voters wanting different priorities, different core values, and those core values aren’t shared by me, so I can clearly not choose the Rauner bill.
“You truly as a dizzying political philosophy to choosing bills”
JC: Wait till I get going! Now, where was I?
JC: Yes, Indiana. And the Governor must suspect I would have known the bill’s origin, so I can clearly not choose the bill he’s proposing…
“Every breath you take and every move you make
Every bond you break, every step you take, I’ll be watching you
Every single day and every word you say
Every game you play, every night you stay, I’ll be watching you”
The day may come brothers and sister when we make decisions in the best interest of all Illinois. When no one person runs this state and when I won’t have to worry about not offending a speakers daughter. But this is not that day! This day we do nothing and continue to let our state slide into the black hole of political suicide!
Cullerton: “I think we should be negotiating on the budget and on the non-budget items.The best way to do that is to sit down and negotiate and not engage in campaign tactics.”
Madigan thinking to himself:
Just plug me in just like I was eddie harris
You’re eating crazy cheese like you’d think I’m from paris
You know I get fly you think I get high
You know that I’m gone and I’m a tell you all why
So tell me who are you dissing maybe I’m missing
The reason that you’re smiling or wilding
So listen in my head I just want to take ‘em down
Imagination set loose and I’m gonna shake ‘em down
Let it flow like a mud slide
When I get on I like to ride and glide
I’ve got depth of perception in my text y’all
I get props at my mention ’cause I vex y’all
So what’cha what’cha what’cha want what’cha want
I get so funny with the money that you flaunt
I said where’d you get your information from huh?
You think that you can front when revelation comes
Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted
In my brain still remains
Within the sound of silence
