    Moments later,… the pumpkin turned into a beautiful carriage by a Non-Union Fairy, and three farm mice became beautiful stallions under the Non-Union Fairy’s spell, and … the carriage… and stallions… took Raunerella… to the ILGOP Ball…

  11. - ash - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:38 am:

    “now, see, this is proof that the turnaround agenda works…”


  12. - Juice - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:38 am:

    Every time Jay starts a new freshman term, his head grows three sizes. Look how big it’s grown!

    (I will avoid making comments about Jay’s noggin’ the same way the governor is not going to avoid taking the arrows, thank you very much.)

    Rauner, “What?! …You left the Carhartt? …
    What about a flannel shirt… Well, look in the ‘Prop Trunk’… Ugh… Fine, just take the picture…”


  21. - AC - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:44 am:

    Ya know, one thing I like about Pumpkins is you can carve ‘em up, take out the pulp, and leave them a hollow shell.


  22. - burbanite - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:44 am:

    Yea I know there is a pumpkin shortage, you want pumpkins? Pass my union breaking reforms, and you can have a pumpkin. Bwaahaha

    Do you think we can carve this one to look like the Speaker?


  24. - LizPhairTax - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:45 am:

    Speaker I have taken the apples hostage. I will kill the queen if you do not relent. Resistance is futile.


  25. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:45 am:

    Rauner, “Can you bring the pumpkin over here, these aren’t prop shoes, they’re Italian and worth more than that tractor… “


  26. - Gooner - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:47 am:

    In one photo, Gov. Rauner shows literally all the steps he has taken since being elected to feed the needy.

  32. - South Central - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:49 am:

    Perhaps the heaviest lifting Rauner has done since becoming governor.


  33. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:49 am:

    Rauner, “Well, you tell Ms. Garrett to hold one second… I’m taking a picture… “


  34. - Vole - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:51 am:

    I fertilized this with my turn around agenda. See how productive Illinois can be with my effluence, er I mean affluence.


  35. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:52 am:

    Rauner, “No, I got plenty of time for pictures, plenty of time, where should we start… “


  36. - Get a Job!! - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 11:52 am:

    This pumpkin represents Illinois’ bloated bureaucracy in Illinois. Let’s roll up our sleeves and rip the guts out of this bureaucracy, then we can carve a happy face on it & put a candle in it. That’s what the people want, trust me!

    “Anybody know if these things are kosher?”


  44. - Arizona Bob - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:02 pm:

    This is an “Illinois Government” pumpkin…way too big for its purpose, a tremendous burden to support, and it gets rotten very shortly after it’s put in service… The only way to make it useful is to take its guts out, cut out a lot of it, and put a fire in its belly…


  45. - Solid Dwight - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:02 pm:

    Who needs an Ag Director when we can grow beast pumpkins like this?

    Bruce visits a pumpkin patch, secretly wishes for the Great Pumpkin. Diana goes to work, secretly wishes Bruce would do his job. Diana’s state employee wishes out loud for a vacation.

    No caption, just a suggestion to Rauner-

    Let’s see some tweets with you at food pantries, childcare centers, homeless shelters, nursing homes. Honoring Mr. Vernon that day was laudable (http://www.pjstar.com/article/20151026/NEWS/151029479/?Start=1), grinnin’ over a pumpkin was not.


  57. - Earnest - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:14 pm:

    No one can carve things up and empty them out like I can.

  63. - AC - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:27 pm:

    The Governor’s doctor called, he said it was OK for him to go to work.


  64. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:28 pm:

    Rauner, “Owls like pumpkins? You don’t say… “


  65. - Juice - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:31 pm:

    Governor Rauner turned up in Morton, IL disappointed after he discovered that when told he was going to be shown a “gourd union” it turned out he was just visiting a pumpkin patch.


  66. - Austin Blvd - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:32 pm:

  75. - Relocated - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 12:57 pm:

    Today the great pumpkin endorsed the Rauner turnaround agenda and blamed madigan for the failure to compromise on an, well basically everything. In an unrelated move governor Rauner announced subsidies to pumpkin growers who promise not to pay prevailingly wages.

  82. - Sacks Romana - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 1:34 pm:

    “I expect a pumpkin pie by January. We could have a pumpkin pie sooner, but the Democrats won’t consider my recipes. The people of Illinois like these recipes. We are making progress, although I refuse to make a pumpkin pie until my pumpkin turnover agenda is discussed. No, I am not holding the pumpkin. I expect a pumpkin pie by January.”

  87. - Robert the Bruce - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 1:47 pm:

    Of course Rauner picks one of the biggest pumpkins from the gated community, ignoring the smaller, suffering pumpkins living in dangerous conditions near the road.


  88. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Oct 27, 15 @ 1:53 pm:

    @FakeBruceRauner - if you lost a state service because of my hostage taking, RT this picture to win the pumpkin! #Gimmicks #LookAtMeICare

    Has a wife he makes a frowner;
    He put her in a pumpkin shell
    And there he kept her very well.

    The pumpkin has been carved. So it’s a part of my turn around agenda. It looks the same, but the inside has been gutted. I blame Madigan for this.
