    The ATM: I chose… poorly


  15. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:39 pm:

    The ATM: Maybe I shoulda just forgave Dillard. Stupid pride…


  16. - chi - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:40 pm:

    I thought I was the one that resembled C. Montgomery Burns


  17. - @MisterJayEm - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:40 pm:

    “I accidentally got on the Up elevator. Just look at these people.”

    Ha!

    – MrJM


  18. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:40 pm:

    “I put Rauner in office and now I’m gonna take Kirk out. Yeah. Go me.”


  19. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:40 pm:

    The ATM: They told me… being rich wasn’t enough…


  20. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:44 pm:

    The Rauner Superstars announced today that Ron Gidwitz has been traded to Joe Walsh’s hypothetical U.S. Senate campaign for two 20-year-old poly sci majors at NIU (prospects) just before the trade deadline.


  26. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:50 pm:

    The ATM: (thinking) Do. They. Know. Who. I. Am?!


  27. - Anonymous - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:50 pm:

    “Step one, work to elect the guy with more money than me who surrounds himself with Kirk staffers. Check.
    Now onto Step 2: use this leverage to take out Kirk……oh, crap…..”


  28. - Norseman - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 1:50 pm:

    I wanted to be the rich guy who is the center of attention. Well there is still Sneed.

  39. - Anonymous - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:06 pm:

    What I’m I going to do with all these gift cards I’m holding?


  40. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:07 pm:

    The ATM: “No room in the suite, the Governor-Elect will see you downstairs”? Whadda mean, “no room in the suite”…


  41. - A guy - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:07 pm:

    What good is center stage if you gotta share it with all these other people no one knows?


  42. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:07 pm:

    ===What I’m I going to do with all these gift cards I’m holding?===

  47. - @MisterJayEm - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:13 pm:

    While you’re at the job working nine to five
    Ron G and the Boys - cold kickin’ it live

    – MrJM


  48. - In Charge... - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:14 pm:

    “…I am still in charge, I am still in Charge, I am still in CHARGE!!!!”


  49. - Amalia - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    Are we done yet?


  50. - 47th Ward - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:38 pm:

    Very funny Bruce. Can I please have my real VIP tickets now?


  51. - Earl - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:40 pm:

    There is a “How many millionaires does it take…” joke here but its escaping me right now.


  52. - Quizzical - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:46 pm:

    I wish it was my victory they were celebrating. Mmm, maybe I do a ‘House of Cards’ thing. I start by saying mean things about Senator Kirk until he steps aside. I count on Schock to self destruct, prod Bruce into a debilitating stalemate. They will beg me to take high office. A few more machinations and these people will be cheering for President Ron Godwitz.


  53. - RFR - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:58 pm:

    Why? Because you need Rauner, Springfield. Your guilty conscience may move you to vote Democratic, but deep down you long for a cold-hearted Republican to lower taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king. That’s why I did this, to save you from yourselves. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a State to run.


  54. - Anonymous - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:58 pm:

    Is my make-up on straight? Maybe a little more arch in the eyebrows?


  55. - Chief - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 2:59 pm:

    Kirk’s replacement is right there on stage with Giddy - DOCTOR WILLIE WILSON!

    IF, that is, his Presidential Campaign doesn’t pick up steam


  56. - Anonymous - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 3:00 pm:

    bubble thought
    “oh, Gawwwd, but I hate these things. So plebeian. Oh, well, since I was responsible for the victory. I suppose I must show my magnificent face to these…these…people. But it IS so inconvenient….(sniff)


  57. - Precinct Captain - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 3:41 pm:

    “Where’s Kirk? Oh that’s right, he doesn’t drive through this neighborhood.”


  58. - Rich Miller - Friday, Jul 31, 15 @ 3:42 pm:

    ===he doesn’t drive through this neighborhood===

    Actually, he just drives really, really fast through the neighborhood.

    lol
