    MrJM wins.


  60. - Observant27 - Thursday, Apr 20, 17 @ 5:21 pm:

    I couldn’t care less what the man “looks like.” I’m just tired of the state refusing to be responsible and stand up to the tired and corrupt Democrat Machine. This Kennedy is a far cry from reform-minded JFK & even RFK. Still, way less obviously in Madigan’s pocket than JB Pritzker. JB is a truly BAD guy, and a mascot of the Chicago aristocratic class controlling our law and politics.

    “Alright Mr. Kennedy, jokes over, can you please take out the fake teeth so we can finish the photo shoot?”
    “Wait. What? No!”
    “They’re real?”
    “Daaaarn!”
    “I’m what? Aw, man! I didn’t know!!”

    And that’s how Chris Kennedy fired his 12th campaign photographer since he announced he was running for governor.


  63. - Jerry 101 - Thursday, Apr 20, 17 @ 6:21 pm:

    Anonymous 6:16 was me.

    Shorter entry:
    Chris Kennedy throws down the gauntlet, challenges Biss to a incisor measuring contest. Loser drops out.

    He should wear a bee keepers mask at all times. My kid saw a picture of him last week and has had nightmares ever since.


  66. - Ginhouse Tommy - Thursday, Apr 20, 17 @ 7:45 pm:

    He looks like a used car salesman. Is he wearing white leather shoes and does he have a plaid coat? I’m sorry but he looks like he could eat an apple thru a picket fence.


  67. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Apr 20, 17 @ 7:56 pm:

    Yikes. If candidates are TOO handsome they get the “pretty boy” insults. Some of these are really nasty.

    Rauners term has been a little long in the tooth


  74. - Rabid - Friday, Apr 21, 17 @ 8:06 am:

    I’m chewing up the govenor, like madigan chewed up a wingman


  75. - Rabid - Friday, Apr 21, 17 @ 8:11 am:

    Team turnaround does not make you a teamster, you got kicked in the teeth


  76. - Rabid - Friday, Apr 21, 17 @ 8:30 am:
