Mocking Madigan

Chicago Tribune editorial cartoonist Scott Santis has this blistering cartoon today:

I have written previously that Mike Madigan, like U.S. House Speaker Denny Hastert, will not have a statute of himself in the State Capitol.

Santis is right, however, that Madigan could hang his photo in the honored spot on the Democratic Party side of the aisle before he leaves office.

Otherwise, Madigan will have to settle for a photo above the House Gallery like all other living House Speakers.

  1. Just wait till you see the size of the portrait Lord Jumbo Boy, King Of Burgers And Gluttony,
    is commissioning, at tax expense of course.

    Rumor around Springfield is that he will be seated on a golden commode.

  2. Dirksen has one near the southern edge of the front lawn and he never servedin Springfield.

  3. Honest,

    Illinois can’t afford enough material to make a statue large enough for gov teletubby.
