He reeeeallllyy likes his business cards. During his term as governor, he had these really nice business cards embossed with the gold leaf foil. I remember wondering why a sitting governor would need business cards. Did he worry that people forget that he was governor? Or was he afraid someone would go “that nice white-haired fellow who was here last week, Paul? Or Pete? What did he say his job was again?”
If there was ever any doubt that this blog will criticize or mock absolutely anything Pat Quinn does, this post removes it. The existence of the post, plus 40 or so comments mocking the fact that he has a business card, on a day when the former US House Speaker was sentenced to 15 months in prison. Unbelievable.
I voted for him, I’d vote for him again, and I’m happy to say I’d hire him if I had a job to offer.
He ‘takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’. The last honest man to hold that thankless job of Gov of IL. Thank you sir.
Northernwatersports: I voted for him against Rauner. While he may not have been the best governor, I never felt like he was dishonest or deliberately mean. I poked fun at him, but I believe that he can take a joke; he’s probably laughing at some of the stuff on here…
I think you should cut him a little slack. I believe he is the first Governor of Illinois this century that will have to navigate the transition from Governor to work without the benefit of programs to prevent recidivism.
