    “Have you seen my top hat and cane, Old Sport?”


  2. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:31 am:

    “This is my leisure tux. You can tell by the 2-carat diamond cuff links… “


  3. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:32 am:

    ===top hat and cane===

    You forgot the monocle. Never forget the monocle.


  4. - Archiesmom - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:33 am:

    In the Chicago Tribune dictionary, that picture is right next to the term Chicago fat cat politician.


  5. - Henry Francis - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:34 am:

    I eat guys like Bruce Rauner for breakfast.


  6. - Boone's is back - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:34 am:

    “I can’t wait to run as the People’s candidate.”


  7. - Big Muddy - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:35 am:

    “A man becomes preeminent, he’s expected to have enthusiasms. Enthusiasms, enthusiasms… What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy?”


  8. - Arsenal - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:36 am:

    The Trib probably thinks this *is* a very humanizing, blue-collar photo.


  9. - No Longer A Lurker - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:38 am:

    I believe Danny Devito wore that same tux when he played the Penquin character in Batman.


  10. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:39 am:

    “I yam what I yam - rich. Let Rauner put on the Village People costumes to pretend that he’s not.”


  11. - Greatplainser - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:39 am:

    I got the “gonnections”…


  12. - TinyDancer(FKASue) - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:39 am:

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
    Black and orange Fat cat sittin’ on a fence,
    I got enough dough to pay the rent,
    I’m not flat broke but I don’t care,
    I strut right by with my tail in the air.


  13. - AlfondoGonz - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:41 am:

    “Who knew J.B. stood for “Jowly Billionaire”?”

    In seriousness, at least he is a caricature of what he is, unlike Rauner’s ridiculous cowboy and biker personas.


  14. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:41 am:

    “I’m not trying to be the wealthy candidate, I am the wealthy candidate. So… ”

    “Bruce likes costumes, I’m more formal I’m my costumes… ”

    “You’re not going to believe this, but I own this tuxedo”

    “Trash can can? I own a waste disposal company! Trash can can… please… ”

    “No, I literally traded my place ON Boarwalk for a wonderful 14,000 square foot, 3 story apartment on Park Place. That’s how I play Monopoly.”

    “Yeah, Diana Rauner called after… I’ll wait to call her back this time”

    “I said I respect The Ounce and their mission. The Ounce… Capiche?”

    “I actually care about Chicago students, not just when I put my name on a Charter School and clout a child over a more worthy child, but I digress… ”

    “The Chuck Taylor’s? A nice touch, aren’t they?”

    “I left my Cuban cigars in my other Armani tuxedo”

    “Diana Rauner is a Democrat? You don’t say… ”

    ===You forgot the monocle. Never forget the monocle.===

    That’s on me. My bad.

    “Caption?”

    “… then they served the caviar warm, the red wine cold, and then had the gall to serve fresh strawberries out of season… I was floored… “


  20. - Flynn's mom - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:45 am:

    Sometimes the feeling that life is great just swells up inside you and fills you with joy.

    “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.”


  31. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:54 am:

  33. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:56 am:

    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.


  34. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:56 am:

    “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.”

    JB: I’m having a party at the Yacht Club this Sunday. I’m christening my new sloop. What are you doing this Sunday?

    Moderator: No plans.

    JB: Great! How would you like to mow my lawn? I figured a fellow like you could use a few extra dollars. And when you’re finished why don’t you drop by the Yacht Club? Eh?


  39. - Shytown - Wednesday, Mar 15, 17 @ 9:58 am:

    “Let me tell you how I’m going to disassemble the IL republican party, seat by seat, starting with Rauner…”
