Unclear on the concept

State Sen. John Cullerton (D-Chicago) was re-elected president of the Illinois State Senate on Wednesday.

Cullerton has held the office since 2009. Illinois Supreme Court Justice Mary Jane Theis administered the oath of office to Cullerton after the vote. Cullerton defeated State Sen. Bill Brady (R-Bloomington) 39-18. […]

Cullerton added that Brady would be a great minority leader.

Cullerton didn’t say Brady would be a “great” minority leader.

* From Cullerton’s prepared remarks

To leader Brady, congratulations. The Republican caucus chose wisely in turning to you for leadership.

You’re going to be — and I really mean this — … a super … minority leader these next two years.

A “super minority leader.” Get it? The Senate Republicans are in the super-minority? It was a joke! Is this thing on? Hello?

    I have a dear friend who can’t tell a joke they’ve heard correctly, even if you give this person the Cliff’s Notes.

    It was a fun lil thing…

  3. Comedian: I finally got around to reading the dictionary…turns out the zebra did it.

    Homer: I don’t get it

    Lisa: Dad, the Zebra didn’t do it, its just a word at the end of the dictionary

    Homer: I still don’t get it.

    Lisa: It’s just a joke

    Homer: Oooh! I get it! I get jokes!
