  1. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:38 pm:

    “I guess I can’t stop a veto… for the 70th or so time… “


  2. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:39 pm:

    “I had things to do… K?”


  3. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    Turns out 71 is a lot and becoming more lots each day.


  4. - Annonin' - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:40 pm:

    TRump and the vote suppressors will be so proud.


  5. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:41 pm:

    “Ken Dunkin? Ask the governor what’s next for him… “


  6. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:41 pm:

    I’ll be discussing this with the Governor when we meet. Can’t say for sure when. It’s a big building and I’m busy, busy.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:42 pm:

    “I told the Governor, when you say something different, I’ll be around… “


  8. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:42 pm:

    86. 67. 47. Hutt, hutt, hutt.

    Incomplete pass.


  9. - AlfondoGonz - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:43 pm:

    Sometimes when you win, you lose. And sometimes when you lose, you win. And sometimes, no one wins. This is one of those times.


  10. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:43 pm:

    But Willy said 60 and I took him at his word…Never again.


  11. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:44 pm:

    “Well, the Rauner Tax is going to be very steep but probably not steeper than the Rauner Cuts… “


  12. - Huh? - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:44 pm:

    If somebody says I have a super majority again, I’m gonna smack ‘em.


  13. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:45 pm:

    The bearded Ebenezer looking in on the Ghost of Christmas Past.


  14. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:46 pm:

    “I’m down to 67 Dems. No super-majority. Welp, the governor showed me. He doesn’t have to worry about any overrides… “


  15. - Huh? - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    Well it appears that the Republican’ts know who their pay master. It is obvious that a bill they overwhelmingly voted for previously suddenly became toxic.


  16. - Rabid - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:47 pm:

    Goldberg said Jill wants a recount


  17. - Cheryl 44 - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:48 pm:

    Why is Donald Sutherland there?


  18. - Ahoy! - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:48 pm:

    Madigan discusses his displeasure of Vinicky leaving her position in Springfield.


  19. - Yoda - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:48 pm:

    The bearded Ebenezer looking in on the Ghost of Christmas Past.

    Donald Sutherland in the house.


  20. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:49 pm:

    “—- YOU”


  21. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:56 pm:

    I consider it a great dishonor to me personally to have to deny that I am a criminal.


  22. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:58 pm:

    “Yes, it’s true. Doug Finke will be playing Krampus in an upcoming local musical.”


  23. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:58 pm:

    This was a bi-partisan bill. The veto and override attempt were simply shows of power. Message received?


  24. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 2:59 pm:

    “I heard that. Eastern had a good run, Rauner wanted it closed, it’s a shame… “


  25. - Rabid - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:01 pm:

    Couldn’t make it to the meeting I was duck hunting


  26. - Casual observer - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:01 pm:

    Sorry, caption:
    MM: “get used to it”.


  27. - Ron Burgundy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:03 pm:

    “Hey, good cop! Get over here and say something reasonable. I’ve got places to be…”


  28. - lake county democrat - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:04 pm:

    Governor Rauner does not respect the right of the citizens of Illinois to have their vote gerrymandered. By me.


  29. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:05 pm:

    “It’s a beautiful thing folks!”


  30. - Saluki - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:09 pm:

    I’m getting too old for this.


  31. - Rabid - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:09 pm:

    What difference does it make?


  32. - Saluki - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:10 pm:

    Amanda looks good all the time.


  33. - Rabid - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:11 pm:

    See what happens when you endorse me you become comptroller


  34. - Rocky Rosi - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:13 pm:

    “It was only because of his money”


  35. - Earnest - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:15 pm:

    The important thing is: keep repeating to everyone that I am all-powerul.


  36. - Cubs in '16 - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:17 pm:

    The Speaker demonstrates the ‘whooshing’ sound of air escaping from the back wounds of the R legislators who were previously ‘yea’ on the bill.


  37. - d.p.gumby - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:18 pm:

    So much for Giving Tuesday…


  38. - m - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:19 pm:

    “No, this wasn’t about the bill, it’s about 2018. Yeah, we’re printing the mailers now about the reps who want to suppress your vote. Over there? No I don’t think that’s Bettie Page, I think the real Bettie is much older. No, not as old as me…”


  39. - Rabid - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:21 pm:

    Yes my wingman will be flying in on the fourth


  40. - Anon1234 - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:32 pm:

    It is true. Coriolanus Snow will be running in 2018, bolstered by recent election trends.


  41. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:33 pm:

    “I told the governor I can count to 60, maybe he should try… “


  42. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:34 pm:

    OK, everybody, we’re going to start our mannequin challenge in 3… 2…


  43. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:38 pm:

    “No, I have no intention…. again, that is not something I plan on doing… I think I answered that… No, I won’t be a regular on ‘Dad’s Home State’… this was one episode and I thanked the governor for the opportunity, the strawberry shake and the pancakes… “


  44. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:47 pm:

    “I’m sorry, I thought I had my pager on vibrate, can you tape over they with your recorder?”


  45. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:54 pm:

    “When Rauner finds 9 Democrats for his Agenda, then he will have my attention… “


  46. - what the? - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 3:54 pm:

    “today was an up day”

    R.Blago


  47. - Juvenal - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 4:18 pm:

    Willy -

    I think it is a leap to think that all 51 Republicans are gonna vote for the Rauner Agenda.

    I bet fewer than half support his tax increase.


  48. - Commonsense in Illinois - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 4:25 pm:

    Shhh…I’m not here…


  49. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 4:29 pm:

    - Juvenal -

    Normally I’d agree…

    But Rauner doesn’t want any $&@#% problems.

    Probably all 51 for the TA, 45-46 for the Rauner Tax. Maybe.

    With respect.

    To the Post,

    “Franks can’t leave soon enough, and you can print that… “


  50. - Amalia - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 4:32 pm:

    I thought you said Madigan challenge. I always win that.


  51. - Anon - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 4:38 pm:

    Sensing Madigan’s weakness, President Snow prepares to make his move.


  52. - Dysfunction Junction - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 4:42 pm:

    Bruce Rauner and the politicians he controls…


  53. - Rabid - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 4:57 pm:

    I think 5% would be a good poll number


  54. - Arthur Andersen - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 5:18 pm:

    “My trousers? Not particularly. Now Mr. Trump’s neckwear is clearly in the extreme.”


  55. - Cook County Commoner - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 5:42 pm:

    No. For the umpteenth time, I do not resemble John Rooney and the Governor is not Mike Sullivan.


  56. - Quizzical - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 9:51 pm:

    I’m not so powerful that mushrooms I’ve allowed to vote against me won’t do so. We’ve already planned and paid for the mailers touting their independence.


  57. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 29, 16 @ 10:13 pm:

    Just because we have 71 Representatives does not mean all 71 will vote the same way. Reality - we can not over-ride Rauner’s veto’s without the Republican votes.


  58. - Deft Wing - Wednesday, Nov 30, 16 @ 8:22 am:

    “I’ll continue to let this place burn, before compromising with Rauner!”


  59. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 30, 16 @ 8:28 am:

    “I guess the governor isn’t done hurting the hostages… “


  60. - Visitor - Wednesday, Nov 30, 16 @ 10:38 am:

    “I sure look my 75 years, don’t I?”
