  11. - Thinking - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 12:30 pm:

    Ok seriously I know Rauner has lost a lot of weight since taking office so maybe the jacket covers up the fact his pants are falling down, but hem the pants!!!they are 3 inches too long.


  12. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 12:30 pm:

    Rauner, not wanting to make Leader Radogno feel self conscious, decided to not wear a tie.


  13. - (un)Happy - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 12:32 pm:

    The Tie-less Wonder strikes again. Able to crush whole communities with a single Stroke of his pen. It’s a billionaire, it’s a biker, it’s a farmer; no…it’s the GOVERNOR!

    Where are the Gov’s hands - watch your wallets! He’s trying to balance the budget!


  18. - Cubs in '16 - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 12:40 pm:

    Madigan: “If I stand in front of the others I will appear taller, correct? That’s called…perspective.”


  19. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 12:42 pm:

    “I’ll ONLY take a picture with you, Bruce, if you have 4 or more people in this picture… oh… and the Speaker has to be in it too.” - Leader Radogno


  20. - Ace Laredo - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 12:42 pm:

    Col. Mustard, Professor Plum, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mr. Boddy, Wadsworth…


  25. - Been There - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 1:04 pm:

  26. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 1:07 pm:

  33. - A guy - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 1:48 pm:

    It appears only one person in this picture has a tailor. His suit fits even in the frame after throwing out the first pitch.

    Mr. Speaker, hard to get you in focus when you’re leaving the shot.


  34. - Earnest - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 1:52 pm:

    Don’t worry Christine, I won’t stab you in the back this time.


  35. - justpeachy - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 1:57 pm:

    The Governor of Illinois is the one that looks unprofessional.


  36. - A guy - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 2:02 pm:

  37. - Linus - Thursday, Apr 27, 17 @ 2:05 pm:
