    Go be a Governor and stop acting like your running for office. Your elected already Governor.

    Governor: Well, the world needs ditch diggers, too.


  38. - IllinoisBoi - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:26 am:

    So, you’re not planning to go to an Illinois public university, are you? No? Good for you.


  39. - My New Handle - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:28 am:

    That’s sheep heart, not Carhartt, Governor.


  40. - AC - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:28 am:

    Sheep heart with a deep yogurt sauce goes splendidly with a $100,000 bottle of red wine.


  41. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:30 am:

    Can I borrow that? I’m one short at the moment.


  42. - Angry Chicagoan - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:32 am:

    “And you just insert Madigan’s head into the machine like that and, hey presto, a budget deal!”


  43. - Huh? - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:34 am:

    This is really a wolf’s heart, the other table has the dog’s lungs.


  44. - Springfieldish - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:35 am:

    “So you slice right he….. oh class it’s Governor Rauner! Well, we certainly don’t need to teach YOU how to stick a knife in a heart!”

    Rauner to students concerning the state budget:
    “…what had happened was…”


  47. - Anon - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:42 am:

    “Iowa State University has an excellent Vet Med program. You should consider applying to an out of state college or university.”


  48. - My New Handle - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:42 am:

    That is a sheep heart, not a Carhartt, Governor.


  49. - Dutch3001 - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:43 am:

    Cool. This is the exact same thing I am doin’ to higher education in this state.

  52. - sal-says - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:46 am:

    Dissect? Nah. I just squeeze the heart..and squeeze…and squeeeeze. Till nothin’ is left. See kids, nothin’ to it!


  53. - Big Joe - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:48 am:

    Don’t listen to your greedy teacher…..You don’t need a heart to live. I’m living proof of that. Now go graduate and apply to colleges out of state.

    Game, set, match!


  55. - olddog - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:50 am:

    Anonymous at 11:49 was me. My bad.


  56. - 360 Degree TurnAround - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:57 am:

    Kids, if your teacher wasn’t so greedy, with her pension and collectively bargained salary…your parents could give you more in allowance and stock options.


  57. - Drs - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 11:57 am:

    “Unless”


  58. - 47th Ward - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 12:02 pm:

    Explaining my political agenda for Illinois is a lot like dissecting a sheep. You’ll understand it better, but Illinois dies in the process.


  59. - Drs - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 12:07 pm:

    Did your parents make some calls to get you in this school?


  60. - Formerly Known As... - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 12:28 pm:

    I’m tellin’ you, my hands are bigger than Trump’s.


  61. - Formerly Known As... - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 12:35 pm:

    Mutton?

    I thought you said you had the heart of Madigan. We drove out here for this?


  62. - Mouthy - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 12:44 pm:

    High school is the new College…


  63. - Mama - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 12:49 pm:

    Why is he visiting so many high schools?

    Is he campaigning for future voters, or is he trying to get the kids to convince their parents to like him?


  64. - Mama - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 12:52 pm:

    I just cut the heart out of your future. No Map Grants for you kids! Now smile for me….


  65. - Bleh - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 1:04 pm:

    Caption: “I know, it sucks for the CPS kids, no school on Good Friday.”


  66. - My New Handle - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 1:06 pm:

    “‘Villains!’ I shrieked. ‘Dissemble no more! I admit the deed! Tear up the planks! Here, here! It is the beating of his hideous heart!”

    Brucie Had a Little State - Hale, enhanced by VanillaMan

    Brucie had a little state
    Little state, little state
    Brucie had a little state
    Its peace so bright it glowed
    And every dime that Brucie spent
    Brucie spent, Brucie spent
    And every dime that Brucie spent
    Went into his election show

    It voted him in on election day
    Election day, Election day
    It voted him in on election day
    Because Pat Quinn couldn’t rule
    Since then the voters rued that day
    Rued that day, rued that day
    Since then the voters rued that day
    When he made the state a cesspool

    And now they want to vote him out
    Vote him out, vote him out
    And now they want to vote him out
    But still he lingered near
    And waited impatiently
    Impatiently, impatiently
    And wai-aited impatiently
    His Turnaround to appear

    Brucie met a little fate
    Little fate, little fate
    Brucie met a little fate
    When he had nix to show
    So everywhere that Brucie went
    Brucie went, Brucie went
    So everywhere that Brucie went
    He stayed in Madigan’s shadow


  68. - Patrick - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 2:36 pm:

    “Here’s how we did it in my day. KALI MA! KALI MA! KALI MA!!”


  69. - Boone's is Back - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    “And this is how I dissect Mike Madigan. I take away certain members of the black caucus and then I have my rich friends fund his opponent!”


  70. - turned around - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 3:02 pm:

    “And I can use this scalpel to ensure your teacher can’t afford to retire until she’s 85!”


  71. - Rabid - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 3:20 pm:

    Goldberg let me in on a little secret, your teachers a spy


  72. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Mar 4, 16 @ 3:53 pm:

    “I don’t see a sheep anywhere. This class is a sham!”


  73. - Huh? - Monday, Mar 7, 16 @ 9:04 am:

    The other table was going to look for your compassion but the school doesn’t have a strong enough microscope to find it.
