    Is that Moses waiting to part the Rio Grande for the Caravan?


  2. - Dee Lay - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:53 pm:

    Voters will make him disappear on Nov. 6.


  3. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:54 pm:

    Here I thought Slip and Sue had all the magic…


  4. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:54 pm:

    We’re rooting for Voldemort…


  5. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:57 pm:

    Speaker Voldemort stole his Dumbledore hat.


  6. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:57 pm:

    Nothing like a bag of cotton balls to make a wig and beard.


  7. - LizPhairTax - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:57 pm:

    Dolcetto o scherzetto


  8. - JoanP - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:57 pm:

    Rauner: I tricked you in 2014.

    Voters: And this year we’ll treat you to a trip to Italy.


  9. - Real - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:57 pm:

    Should of wore the other costume from the Trump rally.


  10. - Red Rider - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:58 pm:

    Watch I will now disappear.


  11. - Tommydanger - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 1:58 pm:

    I’d rather listen to another 1,000 Kars for Kids radio jingles than see another picture of Bruce and Diana.


  12. - Soccermom - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:00 pm:

    Tommy, I am right with you. And Real Captain, I thought it was Moses too.


  13. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:00 pm:

    Madiganamora - a spell that doesn’t work. Was supposed to make Madigan disappear.


  14. - lakeside - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:02 pm:

    Abracadabra… to Tuscany [exclamation point redacted].


  15. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:02 pm:

    I’m actually jealous of the costume, well done.


  16. - A drop in - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:02 pm:

    Boy, the last 4 years really aged him.


  17. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:02 pm:

    Definitely slytherins, through and through


  18. - Don Gerard - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:05 pm:

    “But, Diana, I don’t understand why Santa Claus would be with a witch…”


  19. - Costume - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:06 pm:

    Not sure who he is dressed up as, but it’s more believable than his Biker costume.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:07 pm:

    Remember.

    Severus Snape is the hero.


  21. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:08 pm:

    1.4% - I’ve been wavin’ my wand for the last 4 years, tryin’ to make my personal turn around agenda appear. I’ll have to take it back to Ollivanders for repair. Maybe try to get that 2014 magic back.


  22. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:08 pm:

    Finally…

    A picture of the Rauners our of costume.


  23. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:08 pm:

    This explains how Bruce sighed HB40…


  24. - Back to the Mountains - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:09 pm:

    I thought beards were a sign of wisdom…


  25. - Anonimity - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:09 pm:

    A little late to be moving left by wearing the costume of an LGBTQ character.

  26. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:10 pm:

    Got myself a new costume to wear around while campaignin’.


  27. - MissingG - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:12 pm:

    “Accio supporters…accio votes… this wand must be broken”


  28. - Rutro - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:12 pm:

    From the costume master, I’m a little disappointed. Maybe they’ll bring out the A costumes at the north shore cocktail party.


  29. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:12 pm:

    These will help to win Hogsmeade, sure…


  30. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:14 pm:

    Ron and Hermione were younger in the books and movies…


  31. - AC - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:14 pm:

    Wicca groups joins ABATE in withdrawing their endorsement of Rauner after yet another poorly received attempt to pander to yet another group in Illinois


  32. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:15 pm:

    Sorting Hat - you are sorted … out of office.


  33. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:17 pm:

    Home owner - Aren’t you a little old to be trick or treating?


  34. - beach panda - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:17 pm:

    Bruce sporting his final costume


  35. - Al - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:18 pm:

    One half bucket of misplaced holy water and those two would melt into the sidewalk.

    Rauner teases that if re-elected not only will he step up his costume purchases, but wife Diane will join in the hilarity of what are Bruce’s most relaxed and happiest years as an unregistered tax free munibond salesman to the wealthy.


  36. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:19 pm:

    BVR: “Yeah, but now that I used the stuffin’ out of My Pillow, what am I gonna sleep on?”


  37. - AlfondoGonz - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:20 pm:

    Trick or Trick.


  38. - Huh? - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:20 pm:

    JD Rowling cease and desist order in 3, 2, 1 …

  40. - Anon221 - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:23 pm:

    Prefaced with, I know this is a Potter costume…
    but I prefer-

    Father Time(’s Up)


  41. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:24 pm:

    “I can only drink white wine in this outfit in case I dribble.”


  42. - Henry Francis - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:25 pm:

    Considering that costumes and pretending to be someone he isn’t was the priority of his administration, is it any wonder the Guv and Di do Halloween so well.


  43. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:28 pm:

    “No, Amanda, I’m not in disguise. I’m very…er…proud of my record.”


  44. - Old and In The Way - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:28 pm:

    I like the biker costume much more than this costume. With Big Brain Bruce he has so many costumes it’s hard to pick a favorite. I like the Carhart costume line as well……this is just so ordinary.


  45. - G'Kar - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:29 pm:

    I thought he was wearing his halloween costume last Saturday at the Trump rally.


  46. - Gohawks123 - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:31 pm:

    Honestly this picture can go so many ways.
    But…… I can’t believe he’s not a biker! I’m disappointed.

    “And if I was dishonest in any of my campaign ads, may my hair turn white.”


  49. - DeseDemDose - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:32 pm:

    Looks like Bruce dug out his secret back porch meeting disguise.


  50. - OneMan - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:34 pm:

    And we will let you use the bathroom at the mansion if you need to…


  51. - Christopher - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:35 pm:

    Are those the ghosts of Illinois’ past. As of next Tuesday, I hope that they will be.


  52. - ItsMillerTime - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:40 pm:

    “MCCANN DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME INTO THE GOVERNORS RACE?” Rauner asked calmly


  53. - A guy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:40 pm:

    My broom is a Harley.
    My bike is a Swiffer.

    “You’ve heard of a playoff beard? This was my budget standoff beard.”


  56. - Stumpy's bunker - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:49 pm:

    Nice to see the Rauners in a moment of levity most of us can relate to.

    Capt. Fax wants us to be nice; I’ll say nothing of the last 3 1/2 years.


  57. - Anon - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 2:54 pm:

    “With a wave of my magic wand I can pay the unionized state workers the money the court told me I had to pay them… but I don’t want to wave the wand.”


  58. - Whatever - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:05 pm:

    Now we know where Saruman has been hiding out all these years.


  59. - Honeybadger - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:10 pm:

    I thought it was either God or it really was Rauner after 4 years of failure in the Gov office.


  60. - atbat - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:14 pm:

    On November 6,2018, the State who lived.


  61. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:19 pm:

    He looks like the old year leaving. JB should have dressed as Baby New Year


  62. - Anonymous - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:24 pm:

    So Bruce is Moses? I wonder why Diana decided not to dress up in a costume.


  63. - Wensicia - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:24 pm:

    Abracadabra

    My situation goes ’round and ’round


  64. - Practical Politics - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:34 pm:

    I know that the costume is supposed to be a wizard from Harry Potter, but man does he look like “Old Father Time 2018″ looking to step aside on New Year’s Eve. Maybe Pritzker could be the “Baby” for “2019.”


  65. - Stones - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:35 pm:

    Undoubtedly handing out nothing but black licorice.


  66. - A Jack - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:39 pm:

    The Rauner’s are dressing as Mr and Mrs. Lincoln this year in attire certified as authentic by the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.


  67. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:40 pm:

    A Jack wins. My fake hat is off to you, sir.


  68. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 3:54 pm:

    - A Jack -… Restaurant Quality. Wow. Well done.

    “Caption?”

    HBO - “Dad’s Home State” - Season 4, Episode 39

    Bruce returns from Murphysboro, burns his costume at the mansion while playing “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” on his phone. Diana emails all her contacts that she told Bruce not to go to Murphysboro, so don’t be mad at her. Diana’s state employee starts a scrapbook of Bruce and Diana’s time at the mansion. Hud argues with Anne over which costume Bruce should wear giving a concession speech, the Looch takes all the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups from the mansion candy bin. Comedy, 71 minutes.


  69. - XDNR - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 4:04 pm:

    Wave the wand and disappear after next Tuesday please.


  70. - Amalia - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 4:18 pm:

    It’s like that commercial where the meteor is about to hit nearby the car and the couple puts a giant tv inside their vehicle.


  71. - OneMan - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 4:21 pm:

    JB should have dressed as Baby New Year

    No… Just No


  72. - Stuntman Bob's Brother - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 4:28 pm:

    “Wanna see some patches? They’re under the robe”.

    Still looks younger than Madigan, though.


  73. - Keepin' Track - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 4:29 pm:

    I wish he had worn a costume.

  75. - Amalia - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 5:30 pm:

    Hearing that ABC’s the Conners show is not doing well, Diana and Bruce pitch a new show, The Rauners.


  76. - 47Chief - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 5:32 pm:

    “Gee, Di, when you said I got to wear a Potter costume, I thought you meant Mr. Potter from ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’.”


  77. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 5:34 pm:

    ===Diana and Bruce pitch a new show===

    They can’t. HBO has media rights until 2022, and we have right of first refusal…

    The Rauners will haunt me for all eternity, Halloween costumes, other costumes not withstanding.

    We now know why they asked for a raise in the costume allowance for the “Halloween Spooktacular”


  78. - DizzyCow - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 5:51 pm:

    His Chances To Win Hang Low Like Sleeve of Wizard


  79. - Stuntman Bob's Brother - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 6:15 pm:

    ==He looks like the old year leaving. JB should have dressed as Baby New Year==

    Close, JB is teaming up with Kevin James, dressed as an ad for Weight Watchers. Kevin is the “Before” guy, and JB is the “Way Before” guy (credit to “The Sopranos”).


  80. - Jail Bird - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 7:17 pm:

    Why isn’t Diana wearing a costume?


  81. - Iamthepita - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 7:30 pm:

    Halloween is classified as a holiday?

    CMS doesn’t seem to think so: https://www2.illinois.gov/cms/personnel/employeeresources/pages/stateholidays.aspx

    He donates $50M to his own campaign, but will not spend some money on a decent wig/beard combo. Kinda like dropping those ‘g’s.


  84. - Billinois - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 11:00 pm:

    That strange couple who lives down the block where no one lets their kids trick or treat. Fortunately, they’ll be moving soon.


  85. - XDNR - Wednesday, Oct 31, 18 @ 11:19 pm:

    “Drizzle, Drazzle, Druzzle, Drome; Time for these two to go home”.

  90. - Jerry - Thursday, Nov 1, 18 @ 8:50 am:

    Campaigns must really age a person, but being married to a witch could do that too.


  91. - Rabid - Thursday, Nov 1, 18 @ 9:35 am:

    Leaving so soon? I wouldn’t hear of it. Why, my little party is just beginning


  92. - Rabid - Thursday, Nov 1, 18 @ 9:41 am:

    Its been a treat tricking illionois, I’ve got the smarties he’s got the dum dums
