  24. - Keyrock - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 2:00 pm:

    3) Young woman admiring her handbag
    2) Ives
    1) Rauner


  28. - Henry Francis - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 2:14 pm:

    Bruce, you can tell your muscle behind you to relax. I’m not Madigan.


  29. - DuPage - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 2:17 pm:

    How much for you to go away?

    (Your choice as to who’s thinking that.)


  33. - @misterjayem - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 2:36 pm:

    After months of Rauner looking past Ives, Ives looks past Rauner.

    – MrJM


  34. - Commonsense in Illinois - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 2:48 pm:

    For those of you of a certain age…

    A handshake instead of a kiss…what’s wrong?


  35. - Rutro - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 3:01 pm:

    and Lincoln wept.


  36. - Publiue - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 3:37 pm:

    “Is that water from Quincy governor”?


  37. - 47th Ward - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 3:42 pm:

    Actual blow-by-blow coverage of the Tribune debate between Bruce “The Champ” Rauner and Jeanne “The Killer” Ives:

    “And a left and a right and a right jab that’s taken the Champ’s shoulder off. And here’s the Killer again with a right and another left and a bash with a hammer and a terrific smack with a heavy thud right into the skull and there’s a gaping hole right through the Champ’s body now.

    And now the Killer’s working on the cut eye with a series of beautifully placed punches and the head’s coming loose. The Champ must try and keep his head on. The Killer’s kicked him in the groin and he’s bitten half his left buttock off and the referee’s stepped in with a warning there. What a plucky fighter this Champ is. He’s fighting as well as I’ve ever seen him. Must be losing blood at a rate of a pint a second now. It’s everywhere. Certainly those who paid one and a half million dollars for those ringside seats are really getting their money’s worth. They’re covered in it.

    And his head’s off! His head that’s come off in so many fights is off in the thirty-first second. It’s rolled away down to the left … but what’s happening? The Killer’s being talked to by the referee. There’s the Champ … plucky little body racing around the ring, trying to find his opponent. And the Killer has been disqualified. She’s been disqualfied … this great fighter who has killed more than twenty people in her career has at last been defeated by this courageous headless little southpaw from Winnetka. And there’s a great roar here as the referee raises the arm of the new Illinois Republican Champion. What a pity the rest of his body wasn’t there to see it.”


  38. - Anonymous - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 3:52 pm:

    Seriously, he looks pale and gaunt next to her. Did he drink the water in Quincy and come down with something?


  39. - downstate commisssioner - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 3:52 pm:

    Sorry, anon at 3:52 was me.


  40. - A Non - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 4:12 pm:

    “Mike Madigan and the Jeanne Ives he controls.”


  41. - I Miss Bentohs - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 4:16 pm:

    “I’m just going to stand here with my hands in my pockets, real quiet like, and try to cover this portrait so Abe does not see where his Party has gotten to.”


  42. - rivvedup - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 7:39 pm:

    Abe Lincoln look on sadly while Governor Mayhem and his challenger engage in a test of wills and grip strength. Ives is rumored to have whispered “Uncomfortable, Bruce? Wait until the election”.


  43. - Anonymous - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 8:00 pm:

    At a tronc edit board “debate” with Katrina and Kass, featuring Rauner and Ives, the coolest guy in the room is the slacker with a t-shirt over a long shirt.

    Seriously, so Nirvana cool. Now I’ve seen everthing.


  44. - VanillaMan - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 8:30 pm:

    So, how was the Governor’s lunch, Rep. Ives?
    I bet it was full of balogna.


  45. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Jan 29, 18 @ 10:04 pm:

    For my money, it’s Ben Gazzara at 1:38. Made me LOL.


  46. - Rabid - Tuesday, Jan 30, 18 @ 8:09 am:

    Dianna let you off the porch


  47. - Christopher - Tuesday, Jan 30, 18 @ 8:24 am:

    This is how you swing your opponent, do-si-do, and promenade all around answering the questions.
