Illinois politics with a twist of the knife
Can you imagine the conversation before this photo was taken?
All told, how much weight has Jim Oberweis lost? He's a lot thinner than the first time he ran for office. As someone who's lost 35 pounds so far this year (I'm going for 100), I might vote for him for that reason alone.Somebody please slap me for saying that.
I thought you were supposed to throw out the jokers before shuffling the deck.
W: "So, there is some kind of illegal immigrant problem? What problem is that?"Obee: "Yeah, soldier field is gettin pretty full..."W: "Is that anywhere near... what's that place Kerry was on the campaign trail?... uh... Lambert field?..."Obee: "Yeah, but without the helicopter..."
W: "Tell me again why I gave up drinking."
This photo was OBVIOUSLY take before Bush became President. The POST-PHOTO conversation was probably:JO: Thanks for the photo, Governor, and I hope your campaign for President succeeds...W: 'Preciate it, Jimbo Obo, and thanks for the donation!JO: Anyway, I have been thinking about running for high office and wanted to discuss it with you....W: ...thanks a'gin for that check, gotta hop....
Anon 3:15, no, this photo was taken while Bush was president...it's from a FR at Pat Ryan's house in 2003 I believe.
