*** UPDATED x1 *** Question of the day

Friday, Aug 14, 2020

* Cal Skinner

Watching State Rep. Allen Skillicorn’s disengagement from the Illinois political stage over the last couple of months puzzled me.

His tweets are most likely to be able national politics than that of Illinois.

He did not show up at the Algonquin-Grafton Township fundraiser on Monday.

The two townships contain a majority of Republican primary voters.

Now comes a report that Skillicorn is leaving Illinois after his term expires in January, that he tried to withdraw his name from the ballot last Friday.

Subscribers know more, but lots of people have been trying to reach Skillicorn lately to find out what he intends to do and when he intends to do it. I mean, there’s only like 82 days until the election is over.

* This may explain some things…


* The Question: Caption?

    *David Attenborough voice*
    It appears the yellow-bellied midwestern bottomfeeder has begun migrating west.


  18. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 2:40 pm:

    “Never get out of the boat. Absolutely right. Unless you were goin’ all the way. Skillicorn got off the boat. He split from the whole program.”


  19. - Last Bull Moose - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 2:40 pm:

    Why Mexico wants a wall.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 2:46 pm:

    I was going to the worst place in the world and I didn’t even know it yet. Weeks away and hundreds of miles up a river that snaked through the minds of Trumpkins like a main circuit cable plugged straight into the President. It was no accident that I got to be the caretaker of the Hateful Eight memory any more than deciding to sell my home in East Dundee and moving was an accident. There is no way to tell our story without telling my own. And if our story really is a confession, then so is mine.

    - Allen Skillicorn, Red Dawn Commanding Officer.

    “Pre the Request of the Mexican government, the US Boarder Patrol retrieved two pro-COVID-19 politicians denied entry to Mexico.”


  25. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 2:56 pm:

    Boat Captain: My orders say I’m not supposed to know where I’m taking this boat, so I don’t… But one look at you, and I know it’s gonna be hot

    Skillicorn: We’re going up river about 75 klicks below the last part of the completed wall.

    Captain: That’s Baja, Allen.

    Skillicorn: That’s classified. We’re not supposed to be in Baja, but that’s where I’m going. I need a selfie than an Instagram post to troll people.


  26. - SOIL M - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 2:57 pm:

    Sir, Mexico says that you are banned from coming in. No Sir, we will not give you a lift so you can sneak in. No Sir, just because people dont like you doesn’t make you qualified for Political Asylum. Yes Sir you have to stay on this side of the river. Sir, you dont have to go back to IL, but you do have to go. We dont care where as long as you go.

  30. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 3:15 pm:

    “Show me the way to go home,
    I’m tired and I want to go to bed,
    Cos I had a little drink about an hour ago,
    And it’s gone right to me head,
    No matter where I roam,
    On land or sea or foam,
    You will always hear me singing this song,
    Show me the way to go home.“


  31. - Sonny - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 3:23 pm:

    Suggested attire include a dorky hat?

  38. - 47th Ward - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 3:59 pm:

    Shouldn’t he be wearing lederhosen with that hat?


  39. - Oswego Willy - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 4:00 pm:

    Now Skillicorn is just trolling…


  40. - Shytown - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 4:13 pm:

    He’s done gone off the deep end


  41. - Independent - Friday, Aug 14, 20 @ 4:21 pm:
