    🎶🎵All and all, it’s just a… press pop in front of the wall 🎵🎶

    To continue his illustration, did he run into it?


  4. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 12:50 pm:

    Isn’t this where Spain runs head first into the curtains, thinking it’s a secret map room and The Road Runner then opens the curtains to show a brick wall… after Spain runs *into* the “curtains” and sees lil road runners dancing above his head?

    I’ve seen that cartoon

    “Beep-Beep”

    You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me in front of this wall — you need me in front of this wall.

    When is the poor ILGOP going to realize that the reason they are being kept out of the secret room in the bowels of the Capitol is because Madigan is in there making all the decisions? /s

    Example 817;

    Never go full Grant Wehrli

    The fact that I always see GOP members smiley and snarky at these types of press conferences really underscores their messaging about the importance of this issue. Is it a threat to democracy or are you just trying to troll the supermajority party?


  9. - JS Mill - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:03 pm:

    Boy are they going to be disappointed when they finally get a look behind the curtain. People tell me Trump’s healthcare plan is back there.

    People. Tell me.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:05 pm:

    Madigan’ gone across the aisle
    Leaving just a memory
    A snapshot in the “Democrat” album
    Mike, what else did you leave for them?
    Mike, what you leave behind for me?
    All in all it was just a brick in the wall
    All in all it was all just bricks in the wall

    We don’t need no map room hi-jinx
    We don’t need no one party control
    No dark sarcasm in the map room

    Reporters, leave the maps alone
    Hey, reporters, leave those maps alone
    All in all it’s just another brick in the wall
    All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

    We don’t need no map room hi-jinx
    We don’t need no one party control
    No dark sarcasm in the map room

    Reporters, leave them maps alone
    Hey, reporters, leave those maps alone
    All in all you’re just another brick in the wall
    All in all you’re just another brick in the wall

    I don’t need no maps around me
    I don’t need no maps to calm me
    I have seen the writing on the wall
    Don’t think I need anything at all
    No, don’t think I need anything at all
    All in all it was all just bricks in the wall
    All in all you were all just bricks in the wall

    ‘Mother, did it need to be so..high?’


  12. - Ducky LaMoore - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:11 pm:

    Please tell me the person on the left is wearing loafers to complete the worst politician look there is… sports jacket over polo shirt, blue jeans and loafers. Ick. Just put on a suit, bro.


  13. - Jocko - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:16 pm:

    “Do you want what’s in the box or what’s behind this curtain?”
    Nevermind, they’re as empty as our ideas.


  14. - Commisar Gritty - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:16 pm:

    When I start unconsciously humming “brick in the wall” in three hours, I’m blaming OW. Happy Friday, ya’ll


  15. - Boone's is Back - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:17 pm:

    This sort of craziness isn’t going to change until we have federal election reform that somehow addresses states from pointing the finger at one another by saying “well Texas or this state is doing it.”

    There has to be some kind of work around to state sovereignty whether it be through matching dollars via Medicaid etc.


  16. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:26 pm:

    - Commisar Gritty -

    Apologies, happy Friday to you as well…


  17. - Asteroid of Caution - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:28 pm:

    Which is fading faster?
    CD’s session jeans or his political aspirations?


  18. - Electric Mayhem - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:32 pm:

    OW-I think we’ve found Rich’s Friday afternoon playout song for today…


  19. - Bruce( no not him) - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:35 pm:

    Ahh, but is it really a brick wall, or just another political lie?


  20. - Union County Shoeless - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:40 pm:

    Fair Maps. An issue that has garnered hundreds of thousands of petitions in support of an independent commission, is still mocked on this blog as some sort of silly issue. It’s a real issue, that deserves better from this blog.


  21. - Annonin' - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:46 pm:

    Maybe the GOPies should hire BrickJoe ( along with the others they have been paying) for this exercise


  22. - Rich Miller - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:48 pm:

    ===some sort of silly issue===

    I’m not the one posing pointing to a brick wall.


  23. - Oswego Willy - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 1:48 pm:

    === It’s a real issue, that deserves better from this blog.===

    The Raunerites jumped the shark and its the blog’s fault?

    LOL

    That’s precious.


  24. - Annonin' - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 2:00 pm:

    Dear Mr/Ms UCS
    The challenge is the GOPies and the Transparents never tell everyone else what their post Fair Map IL will look like. Hence a mish mash of comments
    BTW guessin’ Peoria voters are crushed Pointy isn’t their new mayor.


  25. - thisjustinagain - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 2:20 pm:

    OW for the awesome win with his song.
    As for the photo, pay no attention to the wall behind the curtain.


  26. - The Way I See It - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 2:23 pm:

    In fairness, it could be a metaphor.

    Some of the comments on this are priceless.

    Nominating Asteroid of Truth’s first comment as the single comment of the year. Hillarious!


  27. - From DaZoo - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 2:35 pm:

    @ USC - If the ILGOP wants to look better than Wiley Coyote or Daffy Duck, then they need to hire a consultant to draw some proposed maps that has some appearance of neutrality. Seems rather easy given available tools today. But I get it… it’s cheaper to convince the media to come to a press conference to point at a wall or a not-so-secret locked door.


  28. - Dance Band on the Titanic - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 3:05 pm:

    We need one of them to introduce legislation that creates a blue ribbon task force on brick walls.


  29. - Commisar Gritty - Friday, May 14, 21 @ 3:43 pm:

    @Union County Shoeless

    Illinois isn’t the state that has had partisan maps thrown out by courts, with quotes like “This map disenfranchises African-American voters with a near-surgical precision.” Illinois, when you look at representation vs the popular vote, is actually one of the best maps in the midwest.

    That being said, I’m sure 90% of the people in this comment section, that you seem to draw issue with for laughing at an unforced error of political theater, would agree to fair maps being implemented on a Federal level. We’re not being the bad guys for playing by the rules. It’s the rules themselves that are broken, but that fix should be applied to all states. Especially as the right tries to push forth the biggest disenfranchisement effort in the last half century.
