No Ifs, Ands or Rebuttles

An actual unretouched screencap from a local Lake County blog:

CBGIL Rebuttles DH investigation into Island Lake legal bills
Sharpeyed operatives will recognize the screencap is from one of your LakeCountyEye's Blogs of Note ...
What's Happening in Island Lake
The blog is the soapbox of current Island Lake Trustee, Laurie Rabattini. Their most FAQ is probably not: What's Happening in Island Lake? No doubt it must be, instead: What is a Rebuttles?

One fanboy operative sent your LakeCountyEye this inspired guess:

The Rutles
Well that was certainly a blast from the back-in-the-day. The correct answer is no farther away than the OED -- the Operative's Electioneering Dictionary:
Rebuttles \Re*but"tles\, n.
The business end of a mallet-wielding hobo chipping away at some thingy with an embossed dollar sign.
[syn: Bum]

This Island Lake blog is one of the most ridiculous pieces of garbage I have ever seen. That Village is being set 100 years back by this Laurie Rabbatini.

Never in my life have I seen a more unqualified and uneducated person in any office.

Her writing, spelling, and grammar should be an indication of her brain power.
