    governor talks undies

    During the Q&A portion of his Union Club debate with State Sen. Bill Brady, Governor Quinn employed the venerable forensic tactic fondly referred to as "too much information."

    When asked whether he really resided in Springfield, Quinn replied with extemporaneous aplomb.

    "The test is, where do you have your underwear," Quinn said, before explaining unbidden that his skivvies are located at the state mansion.

    Boxers or briefs? The governor would not say.
