    looks like Clinton, talks like trump


  2. - Huh? - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:31 pm:

    See this is my thumbs up for Trump. Notice that it isn’t a big enthusiastic thumbs up, just a little thumps up.


  3. - Triple fat - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:32 pm:

    All this campaignin I’ve been doin.., I can’t lift my thumb higher than this… I used to be so good at givin thumbs up, too.

    “Hey, it’s as easy as 1-2-3. First, amass a huge war chest. Second, never stray from general statements. Third, blame everything on Madigan. Almost forgot, go to Good Will and find an old watch.”


  7. - Huh? - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:35 pm:

    Now everyone look at my right hand. Now watch as I make the handkerchief that I stuffed into my hand disappear, just like the State social service agencies.


  8. - Huh? - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:37 pm:

    This is how I used to thumb a ride to to the bars when I was in college.


  9. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:37 pm:

    “It’s time to play… Wheel… Of… Rauner… Fortune!”


  10. - Huh? - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:39 pm:

    See this is how you ring a door bell when you are campaigning, hold your thumb out like this and push the button to ring the bell.


  11. - DuPage - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:39 pm:

    I keep feeling I’m boxed in and going in circles. It’s Madigan and the wheels he controls!


  12. - Cheap Seats - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:40 pm:

    Actually, this fire pit is a perfect metaphor for my plan to _____

    “No need to address me as Governor. Caesar is more my style.”


  17. - Huh? - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:43 pm:

    Little Brucie Rauner sat in a corner
    Eating his Christmas pie
    He put in his thump and pulled out a plum
    And said “what a good boy am I”


  18. - A Jack - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:45 pm:

    When I do my fingers like this it will magically light up this fire pit, just like my magical plan to fire up Illinois’ growth.

    Well darn, it didn’t work. Some magic just takes time. Just give me another term and I am sure it will work.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 12:50 pm:

    “As long as I get to appoint… “


  26. - A guy - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 1:00 pm:

    You see, first the Speaker wants you to jump through hoops…and then look what’s waiting for you once you do?

    In some districts, the tree is even bigger. Others have thorn bushes.


  27. - LizPhairTax - Wednesday, Jul 27, 16 @ 1:01 pm:

    So to demonstrate what we are doing to Illinois, I would like to ask you all to keep your eyes on the circle and say Turnaound Agenda while I wave my magical transparent wand…
