    “Mayor, I hope you can count to 60”


  2. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 12:59 pm:

    “The 13 that aren’t with you Mayor would like to talk first…”


  3. - Dotnonymous - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:03 pm:

    Don’t pay attention to my current image,Mayor…I’m overexposed.


  4. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:04 pm:

    “I dunno if I’d open with that electoral mandate thing, it’s not changing minds.”


  5. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:05 pm:

    “Leader Durkin wanted me to tell you that he’s still you’re friend, but you’re on your own”


  6. - Lucky Pierre - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:06 pm:

    Let me show you how to play kick the can Lori

    I have been playing it since the 70’s and it never gets old


  7. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:06 pm:

    “It’s best you start with the House, Mayor. It’s the Senate Dems’ ‘Sauna Time’… “


  8. - Bored Person - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:07 pm:

    “Brace yourself, Lori. We’re going in”


  9. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:08 pm:

    “The governor wanted me to tell you he wishes you good luck, and if you threaten about the progressive tax again, 60 or not, expect a veto”


  10. - Robby - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:09 pm:

    I suspect her real estate transfer tax desires are DOA. Her other big fundraising initiative, tax rates that would make a casino attractive enough for an operator to invest in, might still be possible. Though I suppose holistically, none of it really matters. Chicago and Illinois both face nearly insurmountable problems on the other side of the ledger. Their problem is not revenue. It’s debt/liability.


  11. - Give Me A Break - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:10 pm:

    OK Mayor, they call them mushrooms for a reason, you are about to see why.


  12. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:11 pm:

    ===Though I suppose holistically, none of it really matters===

    lol

    That’s your caption?


  13. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:18 pm:

    MJM: “No, my face always glows like this when I come down from the mountain.”


  14. - A Jack - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:18 pm:

    Chicago Mayor gets a chilly reception today at State Capital. Record breaking temperatures blamed on Mayor’s unclear policy objectives.


  15. - Steve - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:20 pm:

    “Mayor can you put in a good word for me with your friends on the 5th floor… at 219?”


  16. - Dotnonymous - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:24 pm:

    She told me to walk this way.


  17. - phenom_Anon - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:26 pm:

    Madigan and the camera exposure settings he controls…


  18. - phenom_Anon - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:27 pm:

    Don’t worry mayor, my plans for your bills are as clear as the details of my face


  19. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:28 pm:

    Height before beauty sir.


  20. - phenom_Anon - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:28 pm:

    Mayor, the firing squad… I mean lawmakers, are this way


  21. - Because I Said So.... - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:31 pm:

    Big Littles.


  22. - R A T - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:32 pm:

    “I need to start eating apples. I can’t keep up. This guys is a blur.”


  23. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:33 pm:

    (MADIGAN and LIGHTFOOT continue walking thru the corridor. Each is silent and looking forward, but the sense is they don’t want to make contact with each other. REPORTERS start to crowd them, shouting questions, as MADIGAN and LIGHTFOOT ignore them, continue walking. MADIGAN stops at the doorway, allowing LIGHTFOOT to enter first. MADIGAN turns to LIGHTFOOT before she enters. A pause)

    MADIGAN

    You’ll be fine.

    (Fade out)


  24. - Ebenezer - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:35 pm:

    ===Though I suppose holistically, none of it really matters===

    Its growing on me.
    Very zen.


  25. - R A T - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:35 pm:

    “Is the room tilting forward? Am I tilting backward? Oh this place makes me dizzy and confused. I hope I get to meet the mad-hatter.”


  26. - Leatherneck - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:37 pm:

    Today for lunch–apples.

    Tonight for dinner–Saputo’s.


  27. - Michelle Flaherty - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:45 pm:

    Wow. Look at Bernie protesting the lack of a photo staff at the SJR


  28. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:48 pm:

    Chicago mayors: making Mike Madigan look taller since 1989.


  29. - Streator Curmudgeon - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:52 pm:

    MJM: “It’s an optical illusion, Lori. Pull your pants up under your armpits and it makes your legs look really long.”


  30. - Billy Shears - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:53 pm:

    Lightfoot thinking to herself: “Why am I here to beg to these guys? I am the mayor of Chicago. We should be our own state!”


  31. - 47th Ward - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:54 pm:

    Oh, one last thing Mayor, do you like apples?


  32. - levivotedforjudy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:56 pm:

    And no Mayor Lightfoot, you will not get to meet Homer Simpson in this version of the Springfield House of Horrors. That is just a cartoon.


  33. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:57 pm:

    Lightfoot: Why am I here to beg to these guys? I am the mayor of Chicago. We should be our own state

    Madigan: I’ll introduce you to Skillicorn later, right now you need to move 13 off the dime to help, or at least 5 or so…


  34. - A guy - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 1:58 pm:

    The last Mayor wanted to dance with me.


  35. - Henry Francis - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 2:02 pm:

    Mayor Lightfoot starts off her charm offensive in Springfield by making sure she wears flats to her meeting with the Speaker.


  36. - The Real Captain - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 2:09 pm:

    Thank you for coming today Mayor. It will be nice to not be the shortest person in the room.


  37. - Dan - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 2:10 pm:

    Mayor Lightfoot to herself: And I thought it was cold outside …


  38. - JoanP - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 2:22 pm:

    This way, Mayor Raun. . . er, Lightfoot.


  39. - Earnest - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 2:35 pm:

    Today’s Illinois trivia: given their respective tenures as elected officials, which of these two politicians has had to walk back more statements?


  40. - Billy Sunday - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 3:28 pm:

    Mayor to the Speaker: “I thought you ran the House with an iron fist?”

    Speaker: “I do. But not with your issues.”


  41. - Just Me 2 - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 3:44 pm:

    “The Mayor goes into a secret, closed-door, session of the Illinois House.”

    It is unconscionable that the legislature can meet in these secret meetings and make all the big decisions away from the prying eyes of the public.

    But who cares about us taxpayers? We should just shut up and empty our wallets and pay the corruption tax.


  42. - Just Me 2 - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 3:46 pm:

    If Steve Brown were in the picture I would write, “Mayor walks into back-room with lobbyist who also is an employee of the legislature.”


  43. - Boone's is Back - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 3:59 pm:

    “Madame Mayor, have you ever heard the story of Daniel and the lions den?”


  44. - revvedup - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 4:25 pm:

    “Madam Mayor, let me show you some of the people you should have already talked with…”


  45. - Anonymous - Tuesday, Nov 12, 19 @ 5:29 pm:

    To quote Randy Newman: “Short People got no reason….”
