Anchors aweigh, my boys

Monday, Apr 16, 2018

* From a subscriber who is also a Democrat…

Not sure an anchor with “MJM” on it is the best visual for the HDems this year.

I mean seriously, who let this out of the shop? Madigan as an anchor around the neck of his vulnerable members? Is that what they were going for? Lol.

An alarming lack of self-awareness if you ask me.

* The invite…

* Meanwhile, do you remember this from the other day?

I asked Madigan’s spokesman if Rep. Scott Drury received one. “Don’t think his address is on that list,” Brown replied.

    I feel petty, oh so petty, I feel petty and witty and bright!

    MJM anchor. O. M. G. Talk about lack of self-awareness.

    Do Democrats really need to meet at a “yacht club?” I’m quite certain there are some union halls and bar and grills in the neighborhood.

    Even a golf clubhouse would have some working-stiff cred. Lot of folks golf on occasion. Yachts, not so much.

    ===Yachts, not so much.===

    I see you’ve never been to Island Bay. The yachts are more like bass boats and pontoons. It’s Springfield after all, not Newport.


  5. - Da Big Bad Wolf - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:16 am:

    Is Madigan’s favorite Republican on that list?


  6. - Rich Miller - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:19 am:

    ===more like bass boats and pontoons===

    Not many bass boats. Mostly sailboats.


  7. - DuPage Saint - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:21 am:

    If a were a member of either party and was at the session where Obama spoke I would at least want the plaque as a momento maybe not the dear friend letter from Madigan. But he is right it was historic and he was president and he was from Illinois and serv d in the legislature. How could you not want it


  8. - City Zen - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:21 am:

    I don’t want to sail with this ship of fools.


  9. - Arthur Andersen - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:21 am:

    Drury got his own copy of the anchor instead, complete with weight and chains.


  10. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:26 am:

    ===Mostly sailboats===

    Here’s a helpful hint to the HDem Graphic Design Department: next time put the “MJM” on the sail, not the anchor.


  11. - Boone's is Back - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:28 am:

    Lol that funder invite truly is tone deaf. It also looks a little too cheery to be a MJM invite.


  12. - Honeybadger - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:38 am:

    I mean, Come on man..really?


  13. - Practical Politics - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:55 am:

    I am waiting for one of those nifty Obama paperweights to turn up on “Pawn Stars.”

    I wonder how many could be melted down to make a boat anchor?


  14. - Anonymous - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 10:57 am:

    “I feel petty, oh so petty”

    That the city should give me its key
    A committee
    Should be organized to honor me


  15. - Stand Tall - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 11:13 am:

    Madigan, the anchor around the neck of Illinois citizens for over three decades.


  16. - Trump2020 - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 11:27 am:

    Hey, you scratched my anchor.


  17. - 47th Ward - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 11:33 am:

    Madigan: I’m having a party at the Yacht Club May 14th. I’m christening my new majority. What are you doing that day?

    Drury: No plans.

    Madigan: Great. How would you like to mow my lawn? I figured a soon-to-be-unemployed fellow could use a few extra dollars. And when you’re finished why don’t you drop by the Yacht Club? Eh?


  18. - Streator Curmudgeon - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 11:52 am:

    Instead of MJM’s initials on an anchor, maybe an albatross?


  19. - Trump2020 - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 11:55 am:

    Drury, you’ll get nothing and like it.


  20. - Just Me - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 12:00 pm:

    Madgan is being childish and petty with Drury, just like Blagojevich used to be with people he didn’t like.


  21. - Rutro - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 12:56 pm:

    If there’s any justice, Brown is the one who ok’d the anchor idea. Oh, you don’t get a cool coaster that any goof could order from the internet. The ego should’ve sent one to all his voters, commemorating the day their president spoke at their statehouse. Where does the nonsense end?


  22. - Columbo - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:08 pm:

    LOL 47th, although down here in Spfld the bass boats cost more than the yachts.


  23. - Steve Rogers - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 1:57 pm:

    It’s easy to grin
    When your ship comes in
    And you’ve got Rauner beat.
    But the man worthwhile,
    Is the man who can smile,
    When his shorts are too tight in the seat.


  24. - Annonin' - Monday, Apr 16, 18 @ 4:42 pm:

    Looks like GovJunk luggin’ his empty suit bag into OHare is the big winner today. We are sure GovJunksters were hopin’ the Madigan item would win, but it stalled at 23 what a shame.
    Assumin’ GovJunk will serve up some big announcements tomorrow, but won’t that damage his continue babble how IL is a garbage pit without all his antiworker, F* unions dribble.
    Oh Well.
