Question of the day

Friday, Feb 16, 2018

* I told subscribers earlier today about this new Bruce Rauner campaign mailer…

* The Question: Caption?

And, yes, it’s late again. Been busy and it’s Friday. Comments will be closed around 5 o’clock, so you have a bit of time.

    “We are not involved.”


  2. - Christopher - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:04 pm:

    No need to wait until Halloween for a scary movie. See “Jeanne Ives… Madigan’s Favorite Candidate,” coming to a theatre near you on March 20th.


  3. - Pritzker Plumbers Inc. - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:04 pm:

    Ives: “Don’t worry, Mr. Speaker, I know you’re in charge. Also, send Local 150 my love for the campaign cash.”


  4. - Roman - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:05 pm:

    Jeanne Ives…Madigan’s Favorite Candidate. A totally fictitious comedy farce.


  5. - Acadian Driftwood - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:06 pm:

    Critic’s choice award winner.


  6. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:06 pm:

    (Whispers)

    “Boo…”


  7. - The Old Professor - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:07 pm:

    1. Mike Madigan fired his agent for not getting top billing.

    2. They missed the tag line: “Just when you thought it was safe to read your mail ….” or maybe “You can Rauner, but you can’t hide.”


  8. - Deadbeat Conservative - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:08 pm:

    “Vote No against payin’ your bills.
    Rated NC 17 for No Cash and a $17 billion dollar bill backlog.”


  9. - RNUG - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:08 pm:

    Strange Bedfellows … starting Mike and Jeanne


  10. - slow down - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:09 pm:

    Are Republican primary voters likely to buy this silliness?


  11. - Terry Salad - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:10 pm:

    I’ve seen the ads, too. All Rauner can do is say that Ives is part of the vast Madigan empire/conspiracy against him? Lame.

    My reaction: Dude, is the ANYTHING you don’t blame on Madigan?


  12. - Galena Guy - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:10 pm:

    And Ron….does that also extend to the police and firefighters unions?


  13. - Downstate - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:10 pm:

    Ives: “I’ve something to tell you.”
    MJM: “Please let it be about property taxes!”


  14. - A guy - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:12 pm:

    Whisper: I’ve got a poll that shows us workin’ together. Get used to the idea.


  15. - Arthur Andersen - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:12 pm:

    “Rated -13% by Rotten Tomatoes”


  16. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:12 pm:

    ===ANYTHING you don’t blame on Madigan? ===

    The weather… I think.


  17. - Anonymous - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:13 pm:

    Rated BBB-


  18. - Rich Miller - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:14 pm:

    “You know you don’t have to act with me, Mike. You don’t have to say anything, and you don’t have to do anything. Not a thing. Oh, maybe just whistle. You know how to whistle, don’t you, Mike? You just put your lips together and… blow.”


  19. - Man with a plan - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:15 pm:

    If taking money from Chicagoland Operators makes her a puppet, Rauner probably doesn’t want to look at the rest of the Republican House or Senate caucuses…


  20. - Rabid - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:16 pm:

    Rauner wants democrats pulling a GOP ballot for Jeanne


  21. - Pundent - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:17 pm:

    I draw my inspiration from commenter Ron Burgundy.

    Mike Madigan connection - 60% of the time it works every time.


  22. - don the legend - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:17 pm:

    I figure the BTIA is telling Rauner that a mailer a day like this is bound to get his favorables up to at least 30%


  23. - @misterjayem - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:18 pm:

    Typical Hollywood: The public is clamoring for something fresh but Rauner trots out another sequel in his MJM horror franchise. Yawn. (Gotta admit, I’m surprised he cast Jeanne Ives as the ‘Bride of Madigan’.)

    – MrJM


  24. - Rutro - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:21 pm:

    Punching down, not good for Bruce.


  25. - Baloneymous - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:26 pm:

    Like Water for Apples


  26. - Baloneymous - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:33 pm:

    The Salmon Whisperer


  27. - Anonymous - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:35 pm:

    M. Night Shamalayan’s next movie “The Seventh Sense”. I can’t wait for the surprise ending.

    Ives to Madigan “I see crushing debt.”


  28. - Baloneymous - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:39 pm:

    Scent of an Irishman


  29. - Rabid - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:42 pm:

    All I need is 150,000 democratic votes


  30. - Baloneymous - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:42 pm:

    The Hand that Rocks the Gavel


  31. - Just Visiting - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:47 pm:

    I can’t see my reflection in the mirror either Mike


  32. - City Zen - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:48 pm:

    Go the distance…


  33. - Nick Name - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 4:52 pm:

    === ===ANYTHING you don’t blame on Madigan? ===

    Give it a while.


  34. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 5:11 pm:

    I’m not so sure about this Fatal Attraction remake.


  35. - Retired Educator - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 5:13 pm:

    I have got one 4 days this week. They are the same talking points on each. Very colorful, but not that reality based. He is attacking with the same old song.


  36. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 5:13 pm:

    An Officer and a Committeman.


  37. - Last Bull Moose - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 5:14 pm:

    And you thought Lady Gaga and Tony Bennet singing songs from the fifties was freaky. Listen to this duo.


  38. - wordslinger - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 5:17 pm:

    Fifty Shades of Gross.


  39. - walker - Friday, Feb 16, 18 @ 5:21 pm:

    Stars report uncomfortable love scene.


  40. - Rabid - Tuesday, Feb 20, 18 @ 10:21 am:

    Meet me on the back porch of the Capitol at 5:00


  41. - Rabid - Tuesday, Feb 20, 18 @ 10:23 am:

    Dianna is colluding with the Russians


  48. - Rabid - Tuesday, Feb 20, 18 @ 7:39 pm:

    If you don’t like Rauner , you might just be an Ives voter


  49. - Rabid - Wednesday, Feb 21, 18 @ 8:37 pm:

    Don’t sit under the apple tree with anybody else but me


  50. - Rabid - Wednesday, Feb 21, 18 @ 8:39 pm:

    I don’t think dianna is a democrat


  51. - Rabid - Wednesday, Feb 21, 18 @ 8:42 pm:

    The caissons will go rolling along over Rauners in his trench


  52. - Rabid - Wednesday, Feb 21, 18 @ 8:45 pm:

    We have it made in the shade


  53. - Rabid - Wednesday, Feb 21, 18 @ 8:47 pm:

    you know what Rauner has been harassing you for over four years, I think he has a man crush


  54. - Rabid - Wednesday, Feb 21, 18 @ 8:49 pm:

    Rauner is going to try the me to thing
