Aaron Schock Says Goodbye To Empty House, Compares Himself To Lincoln

Well, both ARE rumored to have slept with men, so…

  • John

    Well, there is a comparison: “And I am no Abe Lincoln.”

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Bye, Felicia!

    • Javier Smith

      Came here to say that! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • TheManicMechanic

      The few times I was ever going to use that phrase and here you’ve beaten me to it!

    • guest

      Well, RepubliKKKan Jesus says to SCREW THE POOR, AND MORE TAX BREAKS FOR THE RICH, so I can see why Schock thinks Lincoln STOLE FROM THE TAXPAYERS TOO! Yup, Lincoln is just like this Felony committing fraud. More of the right always having to be the victim!

      “Well, both ARE rumored to have slept with men, so…”

      Yes, there is that!

    • Ian

      I love you for this. AND I love the JMG community for making it the #1 comment.

    • Americanish

      Aaron Shock was gay. Of course it was going to end badly.

    • Lawerence Collins

      Here you go

    Coupe or Town Car?

    • Octavio

      Town Car . . . always. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • TampaDink

      I hear he is partial to driving SUVs, so…I’m gonna go with Navigator….with a broken odometer.

      • JW Swift

        I see what you did there!

        • TampaDink

          It isn’t so much what I did….but what Aaron did. โ˜บ

          • JW Swift

            …or perhaps, whom?

          • TampaDink

            Whom….in the plural sense. โ˜บ

      • delk

        Western Avenue Special. Chicago joke, a whole bunch of used car lots on that street.

    • Dagoril

      Whichever one is roomier in the rear. If you know what I’m saying ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Joe in PA

    Hey Aaron, you DO know that President Lincoln was also known as Honest Abe, right?

    • David Walker

      Picky, picky, picky.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Yes, Lincoln was also a picky queen.

    • I should really know better

      you gotta have SOME nerve to talk about respecting the tax payers when you yourself are known to have bilked them for tens of thousands of dollars THAT WE KNOW ABOUT…

  • Herald

    He is nothing like Lincoln, he is an arrogant, egocentric, … though

    • John P.

      Don’t forget greedy. That done him in! It was always ‘more, more, more’! Wonder if his boyfriend, I mean photographer, will stick it out? (or ‘in’ somewhere)

  • Pollos Hermanos

    Lincoln was rumored to be gay…….

    • JJS_prime

      Everybody was rumored to be gay.

      • Octavio

        There are rumors that I’M gay! Imagine.

        • Lumpy Gaga

          “I’ve heard rumours.”

          “Heeeey, what’s that from? ‘I’ve heard rumours’?”

        • No! Really? I’m shocked I tells ya, shocked!

          • Octavio

            I’m schocked, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Well! Looks like there is schock all around, yeah?

          • Well! We are just full of schock, and over schock and around schock and pretty much over schock.

    • clay

      Was Lincoln rumored to have been caught in the shower with Rep. Kinzinger?

  • garyschor

    Lincoln never had that shoe collection!

  • Lumpy Gaga

    So, did you like the play?

  • jomicur

    Aaron, darling, you need to focus less on “God’s plan for your life” and worry more about what federal prosecutors may be planning for you.


      His staff delivered 24/7. A heartfelt accolade to his “photographer”.

      • jomicur

        It kind of gives a whole new meaning to “f-stop,” no?

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

      And worry about Bubba in cell block 9. He thinks your perty.

  • teeveedub

    Shameless. His speech has a tone as if he’s had a successful decades-long career instead of a scandal-plagued accomplishment-free stint that he’s leaving under a dark cloud.

    What a scumbag.

    • Octavio

      Scumbags gonna scum . . . .

      • Lumpy Gaga

        Bag men gonna bag.

    • Harley

      Someone please explain to me why Jessi Jackson Jr. spent time in jail and Arron Schnockers is getting a free pass?

      • I should really know better

        OH he’s not getting a free pass. he’s probably going to jail. the FBI are on the case now.

        • Hayward

          That is likely why the apology he SHOULD be delivering to the members of his district to which I belong will take some time, if we ever hear it at all.

          • I should really know better

            Oh he doesn’t think he did anything wrong. Blue Blood people like that don’t think of us as actual people… we’re just where the money is taken. The Blue Bloods think of it as a big game… they have rules to follow and if/when they get caught breaking them, they go to the penalty box and have a time out before coming back into the game. The rules that apply to us they don’t think apply to them. And they usually don’t, although since he’s done this to get the tax payers to pay for his “homosexual lover,” they’ll take this opportunity to make “an example of him.

        • bambinoitaliano

          No way! He is white. it ain’t gonna happen.

      • Mel Anin


      • delk

        I am FURIOUS that he is not going to Halfway house across the street from that all the Illinois politicians end up at.

        I wanted to Nelson laugh at him in the fenced yard that I walk my dog past every day.

        Hoping and praying I will get Aaron though!

    • I should really know better

      exactly how I felt. He’s going out in shame after having stolen and defrauded tax payers and he’s acting like he’s getting a medal of honor of some kind. But THIS is how the entitled, privileged 1% carry on. They don’t care who they rip off, their whole way of life is to rip people off… getting caught and having to pretend you’re sorry is the equivalent of getting a penalty in Hockey…. it’s just part of the game, they’ve all had to do it and when their time in the penalty box is up, they’ll be back out playing the same game with the same rules…

    • Halloween_Jack

      The thing is, I can almost believe that he literally believes that he’s had “a successful decades-long career”, since his shtick has always been that of the precocious overachiever. Look at me, I’m running my own business when I’m twelve. Look at me, I’m skating through college in two years (never mind asking whether he learned anything in his finance major, given how staggeringly blatant some of his scams, such as the thing with the vehicle odometer, were). Look at me, I’m the youngest school board president (and never mind how his allegedly balancing the books for the district turned into a $2.5 million deficit after he’d been elected to the state legislature). Look at me, look at my abs, look at meeeeeeeeeee.

      The thing that’s galling about the comparison to Lincoln, which is almost de rigueur for a politician whose district includes Springfield, is that Lincoln was kind of the opposite: dismissed either as a failure or as an overpromoted hick for most of his career, and who eventually walked over any number of nineteenth century Aaron Schocks–smooth-faced, smooth-talking pretty boys who were born on third base and tried to convince everyone that they’d hit a triple–on his way to greatness. The thought of what Lincoln would have done to Schock in a straight-up debate gives me a warm feeling.

  • Judas Peckerwood

    But aside from that, how was the play, Mr. Schock?

    • Octavio

      Now, that’s funny.

  • oikos

      Oh lord I’m going to burn for laughing at that

  • Octavio

    There’s something so smarmy about him. Just like the Young Republicans I knew in high school that showed up at the pseudo teenagers’ United Nations thing wielding tons of 3″x5″ note cards. Ewwwwwwww!

    Edit: And what’s with the pancake makek up? He isn’t purdy enough for the cameras without it?

    • another_steve

      All valid criticism.

      But will that stop you from downloading his upcoming man-on-man film entitled “Aaron Does the Men of Illinois”?

      • Rocketeer500

        I’d pay to see “Aaron Does the Men of Congress”.

        • ick.

          have you looked at images of your congress lately?

          just, eww. i don’t know what kind of porn you’re into, but i’ll pass.


      • Octavio

        I’ll download it only if there are lots of muscled, bearded daddy-types taking turns. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • another_steve

          No, Octavio. Not TMI. Actually, I felt a slight tingle in the little fellow when I read that comment of yours.

          I like the woof-woofs, but Aaron is a smooth boy.

          I think we’re lookin’ at smooth-on-smooth action here.

          • Octavio

            Smooth on smooth? Ew, fer ick. It’s got to be at least intergenerational or not al all. ๐Ÿ™‚

          • another_steve

            Why do you hate Bel Ami, Octavio?

            If you had ten cents for every orgasm the Bel Ami Studio has given me over the past 20 years, you’d be a millionaire today.

          • Octavio

            Nope. I’m a Joe Gage fan.

          • another_steve

            Okay, so you have excellent taste. I have to concede that.

            Old farts like me will remember the classic Joe Gage films of the 70s. They were excellent — problem was, they were filmed before adequate set lighting became standard.

            If you look closely in those early Gage flicks, you can see the woofs doin’ it — but just barely.

        • Ginger Snap

          I wouldn’t mind seeing little Aaron completely tore up by bearded harry daddy’s(maybe 100-150 of them) and left sobbing. I’m a bit twisted though.

      • ChitownKev

        A Steamworks production?

    • Lumpy Gaga

      He lost his stylist in The Recent Unpleasantness.

  • Reality.Bites

    Here’s another image of his speech

    • That is a foul insult to MTM!

      • AndyinChicago

        She’s a pretty staunch Republican. Stumped for McCain, calls herself a libertarian. MTM is an insult to MTM.

        • delk

          Andy, when do you think Aaron will be spotted at Sidetrack? Or will Art kick him out? lol

          • AndyinChicago

            Ugh. That dude. He’s either too self absorbed or too self hating for that. I either see him going to go rich, white, Log-Cabin and only drink where he can’t find cocktails that cost less than $30 OR he’ll be in a gimp suit in the basement of Jackhammer so no one can see his face but he can still degrade himself as much as possible (I’m not against degradation in most cases, but when it’s based on self hate, it’s pitiful).

          • delk

            I picture the old hustler bars New Flight and The Haig back when River North was a dangerous, dark place that only gay men went to!

        • I know, but spare me my childhood heroines.

      • Reality.Bites

        You know it was really the part about saying good-bye to an empty house that inspired me. I thought I’d dig up that last image of her turning off the lights in the empty newsroom. But when I looked for it I found this and couldn’t resist the “So Long, Mary” aspect of it.

        What Andy said is perfectly true, of course. But I give her a partial exemption for the many great hours of liberal programming from her show and MTM productions.

    • Ian

      Damnit. How do I explain to my co-workers the loud Gaw-Faw which emanated from my office!!!??

      • I blame it on The Voices. They tell me funny stories… my coworkers have had to endure me for years, so they know this about me already.

  • David From Canada

    Aaron had so much going for him: intelligent, articulate, good looking, young. And he screwed up by over-spending the taxpayers money, and being far too mysterious about his sexual orientation, which harmed him.
    I hope he can get his act together and present a much better side of him at some point in the future.

    • Lumpy Gaga

      He was doing a lot more than padding mileage.

      The “taxpayers money” is just a slice of this sweet pie. He strikes me as dumber than Dinesh D’Souza, so I expect it will emerge that none of the criminal stuff was vaguely necessary to support him in the lifestyle to which he had become accustomed.

      The grift is in his bones.

      • JW Swift

        Indeed. It wasn’t about spending too much of the taxpayer’s money, it was about outright dishonesty and scamming his position to line his own pockets.

        Furthermore, it isn’t just that being mysterious about one’s sexuality is a bad thing in and of itself, it’s when you do it in such a way that you make it seem like even potentially being gay is something to avoid, that it would be something to be ashamed of, if he were gay. That just reinforces the stereotypes held by those who hate us and would work against us having our equality.

      • clay

        Yep, I bet they find a chuck of PAC donors’ money in the ‘spent’ pile, as well.

    • Uncle Sal

      David, were you fondling yourself while you typed this? I would seriously reconsider my taste in men if I were you! And try putting your faith in people who really deserve a second chance. We’ve all seen his act and it was the worse show since “Moose Murders”! Let’s hope we never hear from him again except at his trial.

    • BobSF_94117

      I hope we never hear about him again.

    • another_steve

      “Aaron had so much going for him: intelligent, articulate, good looking, young.”

      Absolutely, David. He squandered his potential. A terrible waste.

      But he betrayed the public trust. In my opinion, that disqualifies him from ever again serving in government.

  • mattkorey

    Aaron may well be a crook, but in this particular case the reference to Lincoln really is not strange as this post seems to be trying to make it. Aaron represents the same area that Lincoln did, that’s why he reference him. It wasn’t like he was just picking some famous person out of thin air to compare himself to.
    There are lots of things to criticize Schock over. This isn’t one of them.

    • KT

      When you are facing a FBI probe because you misreported expenses and overcharged the federal government for reimbursements, you probably shouldn’t compare yourself to someone nicknamed “Honest Abe”.

      • With all that out of control spending and finance stuff, perhaps he should have compared himself to Mary Todd.

      It was kind of them to play some canned applause at the end.

  • Ninja0980

    Let me add one more thing to this.
    He is being shoved out the door by the Republicans but him likely being gay has nothing to do with it.
    His seat is a safe Republican one, and even if it wasn’t, with the majority the Republicans have now, there is no need to keep someone who is likely facing criminal charges soon around when all it will do is make everyone else in your party look bad.

      I think that it’s an acknowledgement that there’s almost literally nothing more he could do in office at this point. He’s resigning under an ethical cloud and already had a rep as a lightweight who was more interested in taking a cute photo and putting it on Instagram than actually doing anything useful. The best way he could serve his constituents right now would be to not embarrass them any further.
