“School lunches top my agenda. As it did as a schoolboy. I used to eat all the leftovers at my table(s), and some of the plates. They used to call meTub-o-lard until they realized I could buy a bully to pound them after school. So, yes, education tops my agenda.”
No, you see there’s a big difference between us. Bruce Rauner bought the Illinois Republican Party, lock, stock and barrel. He owns it now. On the other hand, Madigan is only letting me rent the Democratic Party. I’ll give it back to him when I’m elected. My accountants tell me it’s a very favorable lease arrangement.
“No. No, you don’t fully understand. I’m ‘the guy’ that buys what a guy like Rauner destroys and milks all the money out of, and I make it run again and actually BE a solvent company that pays its bills and gives back and adds to a community.”
“I’ll press your flesh, you dimwitted clock puncher! You don’t tell JB how to court the electorate! We ain’t one-at-a-timin’ here, we’re MASS communicatin’!

“…and I told him, ‘No, the buffet doesn’t close until I say it’s closed. You can’t advertise bottomless bacon and close the buffet before JB says he’s done.’ After that, I was easily able to consume another 4 lbs of that pork deliciousness without being rushed. It’s life situations like that which inspire me to bring my keen business sense and negotiation skills to the table and help Illinois where it matters.”
The reason I haven’t run for office before is because for five years I and my wife were stranded on a deserted island with five others. A skipper, a movie star, a professor, a Kansas farm girl and a guy who acted like Bruce Rauner.
“The difference between me and Bruce? (Pauses, takes long drag from large cigar, closes eyes, tilts head slightly back then slowly releases the smoke from his mouth) Bruce buys things to show off that he can to other wealthy people, then wears costumes to fool others he’s a… everyman… I’m the guy everyone watches to see what and where I donate, and then donate there after. Ask Diana and The Ounce, they know… “
Why do you question my appearance? My valet assured me this outfit was the latest thing in interview attire! If I hear another remark, I shall have him dispatched proptly. My gentleman’s gentleman groomed and shaved me. My butler butled. If I am mocked, I will request that my dressing staff hear about this!
“It’s not a caricature if it’s really who you are. Think about that… “

“Very few people know that I had a career as a professional actor and a stunt man. For years, I was a body double for Orson Welles. Some of my best work was in the film “Catch 22.” Sadly, most of the footage ended up on the cutting room floor during post production editing. C’est le Guerre.”
