Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition

three amigosYour LakeCountyEye's permanent featured blogger, the Round Lake District 116, broke a story this week about State Rep Sandy Cole:
The normally mute Representative Cole finally found a reason to speak in The Illinois House Appropriations Committee on April 18, 2012: She wants the State to get her a new chair! Yes, you read it right and it's not a joke.
State Rep Sandy Cole Has A Pain in the Butt!
Here's a web widget thingumbob for operatives who prefer to hear the audio firsthand:
And for oldschool ops without the necessary high-speed Internet, your LakeCountyEye has painstakingly produced a transcript of the budget meeting:
Ximinez: Now, you have one last chance. Confess the heinous sin of heresy, reject the works of the ungodly -- two last chances. And you shall be free -- three last chances. You have three last chances, the nature of which I have divulged in my previous utterance.

Sandy Cole: I don't know what you're talking about.

Ximinez: Right! If that's the way you want it -- Cardinal! Poke her with the soft cushions!

Ximinez: Confess! Confess! Confess!

Biggles: It doesn't seem to be hurting her, Lord.

Ximinez: Have you got all the stuffing up one end?

Biggles: Yes, Lord.

Ximinez: Hm! She is made of harder stuff! Cardinal Fang! Fetch ... the COMFY CHAIR!

The Spanish Inquisition (Monty Python)
Coming up tomorrow, a profile of Lake County's most-photographed State Senator. Nudge nudge wink wink.

I think you have produced an accurate transcript of the budget meeting, BB.

Nothing like having someone (who obviously wasn't paying any attention to the meeting itself) interrupt with a stupid request. Sorta' like asking "When will they be bringing in the coffee and bagels?' since you are mindless of the meeting content itself.
