    It takes a tough governor to make a chicken this tender.


  2. - Can haiku be a caption? - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:10 pm:

    An Unfulfilled Quest
    Ending with Stammer and Quake
    Pequod going down


  3. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:10 pm:

    Besler has had better days…


  4. - Henry Francis - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:10 pm:

    Is the chicken on Ives’ payroll? Or JB’s?


  5. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:11 pm:

    $500,000 from Uihlein and all we get is a dude in a chicken suit?


  6. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:11 pm:

    It takes a tough opposition to make a governor this chicken.


  7. - walker - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:11 pm:

    big turnout


  8. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:12 pm:

    “Dan, how much for you in a chicken suit…

    “$500,000, and not a dime less…”


  9. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:12 pm:

    Note to Rauner - more eggs, please.


  10. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:12 pm:

    Has Rauner sewn a chicken patch on his Village People’s vest?


  11. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:13 pm:

    “Hey… HEY… this is my corner toilet bowl head”


  12. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:13 pm:

    Unlike Rauner, Ives believes the egg came first.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:14 pm:

    “Take the picture after I finish my smoke… “


  14. - Iggy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:14 pm:

    oh please. The Governor doesn’t need to acknowledge this or a person of her character. Here is a reminder of who Jeanne really is, for all the folks on her that have suddenly fallen head over heals for Ives.

    Blast from the past, from those who gave you “Rocky and Bullwinke” and “George of the Jungle.”

  20. - Smitty Irving - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:17 pm:

    As long as the Governor doesn’t hire Peter Griffin …


  21. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:18 pm:

    “For an extra hundred, I’ll wear roller skates.. “

  30. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:24 pm:

    “Say I’m a turkey again. Say it.”

    A chicken pox on them both.


  38. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:28 pm:

    “The sign makes no sense. What is there to debate? Burl Ives is a Eastern Illinois University treasure. Who’d disagree?”


  39. - OneMan - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:31 pm:

    He looked over at his pal flippy, finished his smoke and drink then got up from the bar and left. Flippy and the other political mascots knew that meant only one thing, there was going to work this cycle after all.

    “No, say it fast… faster… say it faster… see… it’s funny”


  46. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:34 pm:

    “I thought about wearing these ‘Chick’ Taylor costume gym shoes… “


  47. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:34 pm:

    There’s no debate: the costume gig is the worst entry-level job in politics.


  48. - jls - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:35 pm:

    The Buaawk! stops here.

  56. - VanillaMan - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:41 pm:

    Worse part of this gig? The catheters.


  57. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:42 pm:

  58. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:44 pm:

    Yeah, this is the old Reggie Redbird suit. There was some, uh, unpleasantness at a fraternity party a few years back, and well, it’s tough to get those stains out.


  59. - TominChicago - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:45 pm:

    The chicken should be wearing a leather vest or a Carhart jacket.

    As Quinnochio used to say:
    “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.”


  65. - AlfondoGonz - Wednesday, Jan 31, 18 @ 1:59 pm:

    Q: What comes first, the chicken or the debate?
    A: Trick question. The chicken comes first, the
    debate never comes.

    All because of Madigan
    Drops one final g

    The zen of Rauner
    He was not the one in charge
    He is three bags of dung
