    Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the Governor's Mansion in Springfield, Illinois; One from Chicago , another from Tennessee , & a third from Kentucky .

    They all go to examine the fence.

    The Tennessee contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well", he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

    The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, 'I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

    The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the Democrat Governor's staffer and whispers, '$2,700', incredulous, the staffer whispers back, 'You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?'

    The Chicago contractor whispers back, '$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire that guy from Kentucky to fix the fence.'

    'Done Deal!' He replies.

    And that my friends, is how it all works in Illinois politics ! ! !
