    “I like the ‘ck’ thingy you do at the end of emails…”


  2. - Saluki - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:28 am:

    “I may seem calm Mr. Brown, but you will notice that everywhere I spit, the grass never grows again.”


  3. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:29 am:

    The secret to a long career in this business is to say as little as possible, and whenever you can, to speak in code phrases.


  4. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:30 am:

    You know, if you guys listened to Cullerton last week, you’d be on your way back to Chicago now.


  5. - Formerly Known As... - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:30 am:

    Haven’t seen the name =Steve Brown= posting in the Capfax comments for a while now, Brownie. How ya been?


  6. - Stark - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:31 am:

    I bet you think I don’t want to melt you where you stand, but I do!

    Best,

    ck


  7. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:31 am:

    “Then I’ll say this… Then you say that… “


  8. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:32 am:

    Did you ever work for John Kerry?


  9. - Formerly Known As... - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:33 am:

    Can you hear them yelling in there? I think I can.


  10. - Anonymous - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:35 am:

    You know Catherine, I always see and hear everything in the room different than everybody else. Oh, you did know that?


  11. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:35 am:

    “Where exactly… is… Madeupville, Ms. Kelly? We can’t find it… “


  12. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:37 am:

    “You guys have a patent on that Rauner Word Jumble or is the patent pending?”


  13. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:39 am:

    “If it were me, I’d make Lance or whomever send those press releases under their own names… “


  14. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:41 am:

    “Oh, I’m sure Mizzou will have a great football season. Your boss wants to close Southern so the focus there isn’t football right now… “


  15. - Springfieldish - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:42 am:

    “It’s just a jump to the left
    And then a step to the right
    With your hands on your hips
    You bring your knees in tight
    But it’s the pelvic thrust
    That really drives you insane
    Let’s do the Time Warp again”


  16. - an independent - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:43 am:

    You might consider a longer dress for when Rauner throws you under the bus. Scott Reeder did.


  17. - Name Withheld - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:44 am:

    ===“Where exactly… is… Madeupville, Ms. Kelly? We can’t find it… “===

    “It’s in Lincoln County, Steve. Geez - everyone knows that”


  18. - Bigtwich - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:44 am:

    Opera preview. Enemies, A Love Story, based on a novel by Isaac Bashevis Singer.

    “I may seem calm Mr. Brown, but you will notice that everywhere I spit, the grass never grows again.”

    5 minutes to clean the coffee off my computer screens.


  20. - A guy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:49 am:

    Of all the gin joints in the state, you had to stumble into mine…


  21. - A guy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:50 am:

    It’s actually Oscar who prefers Champaign to Springfield. He keeps his owner on a short leash.


  22. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:52 am:

    “So, Ms. Kelly, once your boss took the oath, the campaign ended… “


  23. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:55 am:

    “So the Rauner Word Jumble just prints statements all the time, no matter what, and you guys just take whatever is laying around? Interesting. We thought there was more to it.”


  24. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:56 am:

    Is it true, Steve?

    Don’t ask me about my business, ck!


  25. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 10:57 am:

    “… And that, Ms. Kelly, is called ‘claiming victory and moving on’. You want me to explain that to anyone else? It may help.”


  26. - Huh? - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:00 am:

    I will show you how I polish the Speaker’s apple that he eats everyday, I put the apple into my left hand that is covered with a white linen napkin, I use my right hand to fold the napkin over the apple and gently burnish to a brilliant gleam.


  27. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:01 am:

    “Yeah, many years ago the Speaker had Durkin as one of his committee chairmen. Your boss now has him as minority leader. Crazy business, isn’t it?”


  28. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:02 am:

    “Dunkin? Won’t see him no more… “


  29. - wordslinger - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:03 am:

    SB: “I forget now — which one of us says ’structural reforms to grow the economy and create jobs’ and which one says ‘radical personal agenda to harm the middle class?’”

    CK: “Does it matter?”


  30. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:05 am:

    “The thing the Speaker knew about Rahm is you wait for him to get really mad at someone and then you work with Rahm to defeat that person. Your boss knew that too. Weird… “


  31. - wordslinger - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:05 am:

    SB: “That gadget hangin’ from my leg? That’s the remote the Speaker uses to direct the members he controls.”

    CK: “MY boss just uses money.”


  32. - Man with a plan - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:06 am:

    Consider this a learning opportunity, ck.


  33. - The Drummer - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:26 am:

    Somehow, Sinatra’s “My Way” just doesn’t work as a duet.


  34. - Anonymous - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:36 am:

    “SB: “That gadget hangin’ from my leg? That’s the remote the Speaker uses to direct the members he controls.”

    CK: “MY boss just uses money.”

    SB: Mine is untraceable.


  35. - Huh? - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:40 am:

    11:36 was me.

    SB: I have to tell you, your boss is talking too much. In politics, sometimes the less said is best. What makes the Speaker so good, is that he doesn’t let anybody know what he is thinking. So when he does give a press conference, everyone is listening to what he says.


  36. - Annonin' - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:42 am:

    SB Speakin’ of money, good ole #17852-424 is out in time for the FAIR. Thinkin’ he would make a great grand marshal for the twilight parade.

    ck: Anythin’ is possible in ShakeUpLand


  37. - Dale Cooper - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:48 am:

    Brown: “You can put the chicken in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 degress”

    ck: “I put my chicken in for 20 minutes at 400.”


  38. - hmmm - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 11:52 am:

    One of these people is a state employee, the other a contractor. If the state has no budget, who get paid?


  39. - Annonin' - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:01 pm:

    Guessin’ Wingman says both — money well spent


  40. - Mama - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:06 pm:

    CK, what is your spin of the day?


  41. - @MisterJayEm - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:15 pm:

    “Well, I guess this is a case where we’ll have to agree to disagree.”

    “I don’t agree to that.”

    – MrJM


  42. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:18 pm:

    SB: “Now, my lovely assistant will remove the magic cloth and a budget deal will disappear.”

    CK: “It’s all done with misdirection.”


  43. - Johnny Football - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:19 pm:

    SB: “How do you keep track of all of the Governor’s imaginary friends?”

    CK: “Shut up, here comes one of them.”


  44. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:19 pm:

    CK: (”Must…control…fist of fury…”)


  45. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 12:21 pm:

    SB: “Say, what was the deal with that cowboy shirt Bruce was wearing yesterday?”

    CK: “It puts him in the mood for throwing the bull.”

    CK we can double your salary if you want to do some consulting on the side for 9 or 10 organizations. Repeat after me,” this is the last one folks” . Can you believe I make over $200,000 for this?


  51. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 2:05 pm:

    “Is that Lance taking pictures of Lou Lang again?”


  52. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 2:06 pm:

    “I just want to, again, thank you guys for having Ron Sandack be your Floor Leader. Seriously… “


  53. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 2:09 pm:

    “No, Ms. Kelly, I think the Social Service and Labor rally was a bit bigger than the ‘Gift Card Giveaway’ Tillman had, but… “


  54. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 2:10 pm:

    “We told your boss ‘leave the Trades alone’ and he went to Decatur anyway. Imagine how things could’ve been different.”


  55. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 2:11 pm:

    “I dunno if using the Rauner Word Jumble constitutes writing the press release yourself, so… “


  56. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 2:13 pm:

    “Your boss wears some odd shirts, Ms. Kelly, but did you catch the guy wearing shorts around here? Burned my contacts clear through… “


  57. - Boone's is Back - Tuesday, May 31, 16 @ 3:20 pm:
