Question of the day

Monday, Nov 28, 2016

* Your own predictions?…

- Posted by Rich Miller        

  1. - old pol - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:03 pm:

    Rauner will not wear a tie - Madigan will.

  2. - unclesam - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:05 pm:

    Rather, Rinse, Repeat

  3. - Earnest - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:07 pm:

    Cullerton won’t talk to reporters again.

  4. - Pawn - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:07 pm:

    channeling Hamilton — diametrically opposed FOES.

  5. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:08 pm:

    The Rauner Word Jumble will leak out well before the meeting ends, complaining about whatever buzz word pops out.

    Cullerton will say the most reasonable things, Durkin will say the most hard line things, Madigan will say the least extreme things…

    Did I miss anyone?

  6. - Saluki - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:09 pm:

    I am going to be wildly optimistic. Big progress gets made today. Lots of agreement on big items.

  7. - Ducky LaMoore - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:10 pm:

    ===Did I miss anyone?===

    Goldberg writing copy for Radogno.

  8. - Anon221 - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:11 pm:

    Groundhog Day.

    No news is bad news.

  11. - G'Kar - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:12 pm:

    The snark is strong in Mr. Fornek!

  12. - Lech W - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:13 pm:

    “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
    ― Winston S. Churchill

  13. - Ares - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:13 pm:

    The Governor’s ideology and Fidel Castro’s ideology are opposite sides of the same phony coin. Perhaps it’s time for to try a genuine coin.

  14. - Give Me A Break - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:14 pm:

    Gov: I laid out a series of issues we should talk about.

    Speaker: He laid out a series of issues we are not going to talk with him about.

    Durkin: Gov. laid out some issues we could all see the need to talk about it.

    Radogno: What Jim said.

    Cullerton: I’m not talking about anything until Paterson talks with Brownie and they are at lunch right now talking about the menu, so I’m not talking.

  15. - Rich Miller - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:16 pm:

    GMAB is our most likely “winner.”

  16. - Deft Wing - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:18 pm:

    That Tweet shows just how wildly out of step the Sun Times is.

    Madigan will spit out his usual talking points. Cullerton will try, desperately, to sound reasonable & accommodating (only to retreat once Madigan slaps him a day or two later) without really saying anything. And Radogno & Durkin will stand together and talk what was actually said in the meeting!

    Funny how the Sun Times is so completely disconnected from reality … it’s as almost as if they don’t have an engaged reporter at the Capitol.

  17. - ExCMS - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:23 pm:

  18. - Norseman - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:27 pm:

    Rauner gets Trump on the line and the leaders ask for a few billion. Trump agrees because Bruce is such a good supporter.

  19. - AlfondoGonz - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:29 pm:

    A contest to determine who can hold their breathe the longest will be held. Illinois will pass out.

  20. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:32 pm:

    Great catch - Ducky LaMoore -

    My bad. I thought I forgot someone.

  21. - wordslinger - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:38 pm:

    The governor and the four tops emerge and announce that they’ve reached agreement that Brian Kelly should be fired immediately.

    Seriously, preseason Top 10, one Top 25 team on the schedule and you finish 4-8?

    No number of Hail Marys will get you forgiveness for that from the Golden Domers.

  22. - Anon - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:38 pm:

    House GOP leader will announce it’s Tuesday.

  23. - Jocko - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    Bruce, in an attempt to mend fences, engages in a “trust fall”. EMS is quickly notified.

  24. - MissingG - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    Madigan: It was another cordial meeting, but I don’t know if we’ve made any progre–

    Rauner cutting in: MADIGAN ATE A BABY!

  25. - Whatever - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:48 pm:

    I think Unclesam meant to say, “Blather, rinse, repeat.”

  26. - AC - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:50 pm:

    Radogno’s first words in the meeting are “The Democrat Party” and Cullerton hands Madigan $20.

  27. - Honeybear - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:55 pm:

    5 minutes after the meeting the ILRB will issue its written ruling and the contact will be immediately and fully imposed on the workforce with insurance hikes retroactive to July for the choice made then. Merry Christmas folks whose insurance is pegged to AFSCME’s. 340,000 people will get a huge hit removed automatically from their checks. Retro actively back six months. I believe Rauner will do it.

  28. - Amalia - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 2:57 pm:

    two people taking the side of OSU, two people taking the side of Michigan. Rauner saying that he has no idea what they are talking about.

  29. - AC - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:00 pm:

    Governor Rauner accidentally dresses up for the meeting and requests a one hour delay to change into khakis and a plaid long sleeved shirt.

  30. - IllinoisBoi - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:10 pm:

    No mommy, HE did it!

  31. - Anyone have pay per view? - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:11 pm:

    Two words: cage fight!

  32. - Enviro - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:12 pm:

    The speaker appoints a new group of lawmakers to work on budget issues.

  33. - blue dog dem - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:20 pm:

    A consensus has been reached….. Oreos have been banned from all state vending machines.

  34. - Rabid - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:27 pm:

    No budget without tax reforms no budget without worker reforms

  35. - 47th Ward - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:27 pm:

    Are too.
    Am not.
    Are too.
    Am not.

  36. - ANON - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:32 pm:

    He is likely going to tell them about his new taskforce on worker safety and workplace violence for state employees.

    The funny thing is that IL OSHA which is under the Illinois Dept. Of Labor already tracks and has plans to address both of these things… They know where state employees are getting hurt and where there is workplace violence because they investigate and do inspections throughout the state for public entities.

    But those people are state employees likely under the union so he won’t go to them for their information, knowledge, and expertise.

    This guy literally only is helping his friends out and couldn’t care about things state workers do and this is another prime example.

  37. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 3:42 pm:

    HBO - “Dad’s Home State”, Season 2, Episode 57

    Bruce meets with four leaders of the legislature, brings strawberry shakes and pancakes as a measure of good faith. Diana asks that Bruce is chosen as Man of the Year at Rauner YMCA Holiday Party, secret vote for Bruce fails, subsequent recount shows Bruce won. Diana’s State Employee proofreads press release about leaders’ meeting, “accidently” deletes and rewrites a thoughtful response. Lance tweets pictures of strawberry shakes to “Repoter Scott” and Rep. Lang, “ck” sends email touting Charleston Illinois, Goldberg writes a letter to Jim Harbaugh. Comedy, 63 minutes.

    Cue the WWE music intro’s:
    Ozzy: Crazy Train
    Down the ramp into the ring:
    The Governor: ‘We’re meeting, talking, and that’s a fact.’
    ‘The Rad One’ Radogno grabs the mic: ‘You better listen, cause this is how it’s gonna be.’
    Hunkin’ Dunkin just crosses his arms, does a quick finger point and steps back into a power stance.
    Lights go out.
    AC/DC: Highway to Hell
    Crowd roars and rises, lights flash, fireworks go off
    Culler the Killer hits the stage, pops up a corner with two arms raised.
    The Madigan, dressed in a suit, climbs the stairs, glares at The Reps, takes out a mic: ‘I haven’t got time for this nonsense’, drops the mic and does the Clint Eastwood stare.
    The crowd goes wild.
    The Governor is kicking the ropes.

    We’ll be right back after this commercial…….

  39. - BK Bro - Monday, Nov 28, 16 @ 4:23 pm:

    Neither side agrees to compromise. The meeting was/will be generally pointless.
