* Madigan, corruption, taxes and toilets. Lather, rinse, repeat. From the Illinois State Fair Republican tent…



…Adding… Just making sure I point out that they misspelled the word Madigan. It’s not “Madgian.” Y’all say his name like 78 kabillion times a day, for crying out loud. Get it together, please. #ILStateFairFacePalm.

Sheesh.

    If you’re gonna use toilet humor at least attempt to be clever about it. Yeesh.


  2. - 17% Solution - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 3:54 pm:

    And here I thought Jeanne Ives was Madigan’s favorite.


  3. - I Miss Bentohs - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 3:54 pm:

    Like I was saying before, no way all these errors are accidents. No one can see Madigan a million times and then put Madgian on a poster on accident.


  4. - I Miss Bentohs - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 3:57 pm:

    Sorry as this was a caption contest so

    AS you can see, we agree that the spell-checker belongs in the toilet. Along with the meaningless junk she is producing.


  5. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 3:59 pm:

    “Spell Check complete.”


  6. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:00 pm:

    “Close enough for BTIA(tm) Work”


  7. - Superstars - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:00 pm:

    Proof that both government and political “superstars” can’t even spell.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:00 pm:

    “Don’t trifle me with details, get the props out for display”


  9. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:01 pm:

    “But we put him in a heart”


  10. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:02 pm:

    “That ‘JB’… looks like their JB… its so cool”


  11. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:02 pm:

    “Hey fam. Who thinks it’d be a great idea to put a toilet in front of our state fair tent? Everybody? Let’s do this!”


  12. - Ok - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:03 pm:

    To the Seth McMillan sign (plus Rauner signs)…

    For once, I would like to see someone use the other half of the Illinois outline in their sign.

    Maybe a candidate from Effingham.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:04 pm:

    “You never see IPI make these spelling errors”


  14. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:05 pm:

    “We shoulda painted the toilet gold”


  15. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:06 pm:

    “No… no… forget that… we put ‘JB’ in there… that’s the point.., “


  16. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:07 pm:

    (Ron Howard voice: They misspelled Madigan)


  17. - Rabid - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:07 pm:

    GOP Kool-Aid stand


  18. - Earnest - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:08 pm:

    >Just making sure I point out that they misspelled the word Madigan

    Hopefully the proofreader isn’t doing the campaign work on state time.


  19. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:10 pm:

    “The sign, sure, what are we going to do with the 1,500 coffee mugs and 1,000 hats with ‘Madgian’ on them”


  20. - Cubs in '16 - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:10 pm:

    *Approximately an hour before Levi Lovell was arrested…*

    “Hey, check it out. Bullseye on both of their faces. hehehehehehehe”


  21. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:12 pm:

    … and Diana Rauner was worried the “Superstars” weren’t doing well on messaging… so… we get this.


  22. - OneMan - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:14 pm:

    Perhaps they are playing a long game with Trump supporters to show that spelling isn’t that important…


  23. - West Side the Best Side - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:16 pm:

    “It’s not the Irish Mike M who’s corrupt, it’s the Armenian Mike M.”

    Levi Lovell: “I had to pee so bad the i and g in Madigan switched places.”


  25. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:23 pm:

    HBO - “Dad’s Home State” - Season 4, Episode 33

    Bruce rehearses costume changes in between speeches for his fair day. Diana checks campaign computers to see who turns off Spell Check. Diana’s State Employee makes sure the buses are situated to keep protesters at bay. Hud and Anne argue which pictures should be on a poster that sits on a toilet, Gallulo looks for quick exit locations on the fair grounds, the Looch eats a corn dog alone by the big slide. Comedy. 59 minutes.


  26. - Mama - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:36 pm:

    Stuff like this turns me off.


  27. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:39 pm:

    At this point Rich, I think they are intentionally doing the spelling errors just to troll you.


  28. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:45 pm:

    “We had a toilet costume, but the porcelain was too heavy and there was limited range of motion”


  29. - Juice - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:49 pm:

    Madgian… and the #ILStateFairFacePalms he controls


  30. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:51 pm:

    “Do you want it on time, or do you want it done right?”


  31. - Frank talks - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:51 pm:

    Hello I Mike Madgian from Kazakstan how you?

    In my best Borat voice.


  32. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:52 pm:

    “This IS the best they can do, they’re not union workers… “


  33. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:53 pm:

    “Next time… JB (heart) MJM. Do it PDQ, make this poster MIA”


  34. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:55 pm:

    “Next time, paint that *inside* the toilet… and use holiday lights around the rim to make it glow at night, and when you flush make it play ‘We’re in the Money’… “


  35. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:56 pm:

    “Bet Z regrets leaving Bruce, amirite? How cool is this?”


  36. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:57 pm:

    “All I’m saying… even IPI is mocking this… “


  37. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:59 pm:

    “Wish I could shred that poster and flush it down that toilet”

    - Fake Bruce Rauner


  38. - XDNR - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 4:59 pm:

    They also spelled Ruarner wrong on the toilet paper.


  39. - A drop in - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 5:03 pm:

    We can hire 8 proof readers for a million dollars. Can we get Uihlein to pay for it?


  40. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 5:05 pm:

    “This is the *last* time we cut and paste something that OW fellow types without spell checking it.”


  41. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 5:06 pm:

    “We wanted to use Michael, but no one could get the right spelling so we went with Madgian”


  42. - Henry Francis - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 5:06 pm:

    Considering all the beer being drunk, and the long lines at the bathrooms, that toilet could look inviting.


  43. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 5:16 pm:

    “Think of all the money we’re saving by having no accomplishments to tout. We can afford this stuff easy.”


  44. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Aug 16, 18 @ 5:22 pm:

    Toilet for demonstration purposes only. Not for actual use.


  65. - PublicServant - Friday, Aug 17, 18 @ 9:10 am:

    @Demoralized - lol, that reminded me of a trip to home depot where a guy brought his 8 y/o, and with the father distracted, the kid saw the toilets display out on the floor, and decided he needed to go, and, well …
