* House Speaker Madigan and Rev. Jesse Jackson in Springfield yesterday

* A little background from yesterday

As the state nears the two year mark without a budget, Rev. Jesse Jackson told the crowd he’s trying to broker a summit between the parties.

“We should not adjust to this state of affairs and let ideology stand between us. Cullerton will do it, I think Madigan will do it, and I think the governor is more inclined to do it,” Jackson said.

    “Dear Michael,

    Thank you for your contribution to the Rainbow Coalition…”


  2. - Leatherneck - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:13 pm:

    Can we have the summit at Saputo’s?


  3. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:15 pm:

    “How do you want it signed, ‘To Mike’ or ‘To Michael’?…”


  4. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:16 pm:

    “And here’s what it’s gonna cost you, Mr. Speaker, for my help..”


  5. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:16 pm:

    With kindest personal regards..I remain…yours truly…

    To my largest Donor EVER!!!


  7. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:17 pm:

    “I’m listening, Speaker, I’m just adding how much I can charge you for my time here today… “


  8. - Earnest - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:19 pm:

    Jackson: Look at me! Look at me!
    Madigan: Look at him! Look at him! Not at me!


  9. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:19 pm:

    “Will you sign one for Shirley?”


  10. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:20 pm:

    “No, Speaker, I’m not helping Rod negotiate a way to reduce his sentence. My time with Rod has long since passed”


  11. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:25 pm:

    “Nope, I couldn’t have left Rod there, or traded Rod for the hostages, although sharing a flight with Rod, don’t think it didn’t cross my mind… “


  12. - Give Me A Break - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:26 pm:

    If Mapes asks for one, tell him you are out.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:28 pm:

    “I know Mike, we knew Barack ‘when’… and here we both are… “


  14. - Norseman - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:28 pm:

    Press real hard Jesse. The carbon paper on the check underneath the picture doesn’t work the best.


  15. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:30 pm:

    Mike Madigan and the Civil Rights leaders he controls.


  16. - Arock - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:32 pm:

    Alright, finally something to show for all my years as the Speaker of House, because my record is nothing to brag about.


  17. - Cubs in '16 - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:33 pm:

    “Please sign it ‘To Michelle Love, Jesse’. It’s for a niece…”


  18. - Cubs in '16 - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:36 pm:

    “This is sweet! Chance the Rapper was fresh out of publicity photos when he was the designated deal broker.”


  19. - Ron Burgundy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:40 pm:

    “Dear Mike, Keep Hope Alive! Rev. Jesse Jackson”

    Speaker: “Who’s Hope?”


  20. - Whatever - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:41 pm:

    Well, Rev. Jackson did get Syria to release that Navy pilot 30 some years ago, which sometimes seems like the last time any negotiations over there produced a good and tangible result. Maybe he’s the man for the job.


  21. - Cubs in '16 - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:47 pm:

    JJ: “Are you sure Mr. Speaker?”
    MJM: “Yes.”
    JJ: *eyeroll* “Ok, An apple a day….”


  22. - IllinoisBoi - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:51 pm:

    ==Well, Rev. Jackson did get Syria to release that Navy pilot 30 some years ago, which sometimes seems like the last time any negotiations over there produced a good and tangible result. Maybe he’s the man for the job.==

    True! Jackson has a long record of negotiating the release of hostages (Syria, Iraq, Cuba, Kosovo, etc.) But I think releasing Rauner’s hostages — human service organizations, state universities, etc. — might be beyond his powers.

    Hey, I’ll just doodle in some sunglasses over the eyes.


  24. - Cubs in '16 - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:52 pm:

    “Really? I’M your biggest fan?!?”


  25. - Cubs in '16 - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 3:58 pm:

    “To: Beer Nuts. Yes, that’s perfect! I’ll be sure he receives it. Anonymously of course.”

    *giggles uncontrollably*


  26. - A guy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 4:04 pm:

    This is my normal fee structure. Half money. Half jobs. Half, future consideration.


  27. - Cubs in '16 - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 4:05 pm:

    MJM: “Thank you for signing mine in black Sharpie. Would you mind signing the Governor’s in red?”


  28. - Arthur Andersen - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 4:23 pm:

    “To Ken Dunkin, with best wishes.”
    “Anything else you want on there, Mr. Speaker?”
    “No, Reverend, this is perfect. I’ll see that he receives it.”


  29. - don the legend - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 4:25 pm:

    JJ: “Thanks for not not addressing worker’s comp until Jesse Jr. got his.”


  30. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 5:03 pm:

    We have known each other many years, but this is the first time you’ve come to me for counsel or for help. I can’t remember the last time you invited me to your house for a cup of coffee, even though my wife gave an arts grant to Rainbow/PUSH. But let’s be frank here. You never wanted my friendship. And you feared to be in my debt.

    I understand. You found paradise in Chicago. You had a good trade, you made a good living. The police protected you and there were courts of law. So you didn’t need a friend like me. Now you come and say “Mike Madigan, give me justice.” But you don’t ask with respect. You don’t offer friendship. You don’t even think to call me “Speaker.” You come into my office and you ask me to do political favors - for money.

    Jesse, Jesse, what have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you’d come to me in friendship, this governor who ruined your business would be suffering this very day. And if by some chance an honest man like yourself made enemies they would become my enemies. And then, they would fear you.


  31. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 5:22 pm:

    Well done - 47th Ward -

    To the Post,

    “So, Mike, I sign over my apple orchard to you, you then… what do I get again… “


  32. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 5:30 pm:

    “Where did you find this picture? No, don’t tell me, It’s better I don’t know… “


  33. - Signal and Noise - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 6:02 pm:

    “See in this one, she’s holding an apple, in the other one she’s not. Go on, you try and find one”


  34. - peon - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 6:46 pm:

    “I’ll sign the card Mike, but I tell you there is no way Barack will run for Governor”.


  35. - Donnie Elgin - Wednesday, Apr 26, 17 @ 7:07 pm:

    Now you are sure you can get my son a job at IDOT ?


  36. - Anonymous - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 5:20 am:

    Sign it, Your Obedient Servant, j. jackson.
