O/T: Farmers and Politicians

Rumor has it this may have been down state Illonois but no proof.<grin>
Enjoy

A busload of politicians were driving down a country road when all of a sudden, the bus ran off the road and crashed into a tree in an old farmer's field.
The old farmer, after seeing what had happened, went over to investigate. He then proceeded to dig a hole to bury the politicians.
A few days later the local sheriff came out, saw the crashed bus, and asked the old farmer where all the politicians had gone.
The old farmer said he had buried them.
The sheriff asked the old farmer, "Were they all dead?"
The old farmer replied, "Well, some of them said they weren't, but you know how them bastards lie."

Yeah, but he's a Chicago Machine politician. It is the Metro-Chicago contribution to political ooze (Daley, Blago, Ryan, Obama ...) that gives the state a bad name.

Nah; All Illinois state politicians live in the Chicago area. They just work in Springfield and only then when they can't get out of it.

Apparently that was one of the contributing causes of the latest bit of corruption. He didn't like the pay in Springfield and was looking for a better gig.

Our present governor and wife, refused to reside in the Mansion in Springfield which is mid state. They elected to remain in Chicago. Which is good he probably good as they would have sold all the furniture on Ebay.

Spoken by someone who either doesn't live in Illinois or doesn't pay attention. Blago probably couldn't find Springfield on a map. The joke in the state is how little time he spent in the actual governor's mansion, or in Springfield. He spent most of his time in his Chicago office and his north side home.

In all my years covering Chicago, never found a farm.
Now Peoria, Springfield, Bloomington/Normal and points south is another matter.
No mention of where the politicians practiced, only where the met their demise.

Well, there is Soldier Field, where every week several guys gather together and plow in to each other. :-)

On Usenet, no one can hear you laugh. That's a good thing, though, as some
writers are incorrigible.
