    Lunch! You call this lunch? Where is my apple?


  2. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:36 am:

    “… and then we voted accordingly, and Juliana won… “


  3. - Ravenswood Right Winger - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:36 am:

    “I’m pouting because Dunkin is still in office until January.”


  4. - A guy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:36 am:

    Julia, who exactly did you call to set up this very happy get-together?


  5. - Homer J. Quinn - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:37 am:

    “lunch? sure, I could eat. you want to split a lukewarm water?”


  6. - Chicago Pizza Squirrel - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:40 am:

    I know you already posted a caption contest, but this is incredible

  7. - Quizzical - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:44 am:

    I thought Mapes had given her the talk already. Why am I hearing this ‘independent voice, voting her conscience on behalf of the community’ rhetoric.


  8. - VanillaMan - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:45 am:

    “Synching….synching….THERE - I’ve locked into her mind….Juliana - this is your captain - please listen closely to what you are to say….”


  9. - Norseman - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:46 am:

    What the heck is Goldberg doing over there!


  10. - Anon - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:50 am:

    Isn’t there still an election in November before she becomes the State Rep of the 5th?


  11. - Dr X - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:51 am:

    They never see my lips move when I control them.


  12. - Birdseed - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:54 am:

    “Thank you for dimming the lights. Now please bring me my space blanket!”


  13. - Bruce (no not him) - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:55 am:

    I thought you said the governor would be here.


  14. - Vibes - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:55 am:

    Perhaps the Governor would like to join this group to discuss compromises?

    Five million dollars spent and not enough left over to buy me an apple?

    We’d like to thank Mr. Dunkin and Mr. Gonzalez for their willingness to put themselves before the voters. Without such acts of selflessness, our democracy would fail.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:56 am:

    Here endeth the Lesson…


  16. - Michelle Flaherty - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:56 am:

    When I agreed to have lunch with Stratton, I forgot he wasn’t the governor anymore.


  17. - Earnest - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:56 am:

    Ah, ha, ha, my secret, decades-long plan to install my daughter as governor is proceeding nicely and no one suspects!


  18. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:58 am:

    “Madigan - 1, Democratic Raunerites - 0″


  19. - Cubs in '16 - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 10:59 am:

    “Well, when I was married I was known as Juliana Dunkin-Stratton. Mr Speaker? That was a just a joke sir…”


  20. - Moe Berg - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:00 am:

    Future Speaker shares table with current Speaker. Juliana is genuinely impressive and a class-act. Voters traded in their Yugo for a Rolls-Royce.


  21. - nadia - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:04 am:

    I’m going to have to speak with staff about why she got 68% and I got 65%.


  22. - Ipso Facto - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:05 am:

    “Now, where’s those ILGO Dunkin Donuts.”


  23. - Saluki - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:06 am:

    House Speaker Mike Madigan Hum’s the Imperial March in his head, as Juliana Stratton ponders a tax increase.


  24. - Wensicia - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:07 am:

    Who put this piece of paper asking for a meeting with Rauner in front of my seat?!


  25. - walker - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:08 am:

    “Is it just me, or do you see him too?”


  26. - Ipso Facto - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:10 am:

    Madigan, “I’ll just have the dessert …”

    (inaudible)

    Madigan, “Cold, of course.”


  27. - 47th Ward - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:11 am:

    We have no involvement in that lunch.


  28. - Rich Miller - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:13 am:

    47th Ward takes a perhaps insurmountable lead!

    First time for everything. Heh…


  29. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:14 am:

    “Usually we can’t get President Obama to come here, but we have a friend at the end of the table there that controls the President… “


  30. - 47th Ward - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:19 am:

    Don’t make me bring back Madigan Facts…


  31. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:22 am:

    Rauner’s Turnaround Team!


  32. - rock - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:23 am:

    Waiting patiently for there
    Big Mac.


  33. - Casual observer - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:23 am:

    Hey Juliana, who did you call to arrange this meeting with the speaker?

    Asking for a friend.


  34. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:33 am:

    - 47th Ward -

    I’ve been sitting here trying to reach that bar… well played.

    “Ok everyone, we’re going to vote, some are going to vote by proxy… “


  35. - Beaner - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:38 am:

    Two winners salivate as the smell of roasted goose fills the hall.


  36. - Tired - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:43 am:

    “I have nothing to do with this lunch.”


  37. - lake county democrat - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 11:49 am:

    Yes, I’ll repeat the question: what does the face of a Democratic leader who has just been forced to spend a million dollars to win an African-American district in Chicago look like?


  38. - Ghost - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:02 pm:

    “where is my freakin apple…”


  39. - zatoichi - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:11 pm:

    Walter is rehearsing his lines before Jeff Dunham starts the show.


  40. - A guy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:33 pm:

    I wish the rotary dial pay phone in my office had Caller ID.


  41. - dude - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:37 pm:

    MJM: “Julia- moderation, not the extreme. Cooperatively and professionally, not name calling. Budget items, not idea’s unrelated to budget.”

    Julia: Yep…..I get it. What’s the holdup?


  42. - A guy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:38 pm:

    Julia: So what’s the soonest I can vote for you?


  43. - Just Me - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:43 pm:

    Stratton: Thank you for the question. Let me check with the Speaker and get back to you.

    Speaker: You’ll make a fine leader in the Illinois House.


  44. - Rabid - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:54 pm:

    Charade team winners
    “kneed hug”


  45. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:59 pm:

    Your Move, Governor.


  46. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 12:59 pm:

    “Ken Dunkin? Won’t see him after January… “


  47. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 1:01 pm:

    Duckling Duty


  48. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 1:03 pm:

    “Sit down, Ken.”

  53. - Almost the Weekend - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 1:45 pm:

  54. - Rabid - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 1:57 pm:

    First sign in the super-excellent master mason degree


  55. - MurMan - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 2:33 pm:

    ===I’m going to have to speak with staff about why she got 68% and I got 65%.===

    Obama endorsement is good for 3 points


  56. - MurMan - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 2:42 pm:

    Speaker upset that his lunch cannoli was mistakenly left in car with the corpse of Dunkin’s political career. Stratton explains, “I thought you told me to take gun and leave the cannoli…”


  57. - Empty Suit - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 2:52 pm:

    “Mapes it’s 9:59am where’s my apple?!!”


  58. - A Modest Proposal - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 3:03 pm:

    Madigan = progress??? What’s this twitter’s definition of progress? no budget, large deficits, inability to pay bills and pension payments???


  59. - Anonymous - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 3:11 pm:

    You never see the lips move on a good ventriloquist.
