Lisa Madigan finally wins a contest

Monday, Feb 10, 2014

* I get some weird press releases sometimes…

Hi Rich,

The Illinois General Election is still a few months away, but the results of a recent poll comparing Illinois politicians have Attorney General Lisa Madigan grinning from ear to ear.

In a survey of more than 250 member dentists from the Chicago Dental Society, when asked which Illinois politician has the best smile, the state’s first female attorney general (headshot attached) received the highest marks with 53 percent of the vote.

Here are the complete results:

    1. Lisa Madigan (53%) – Illinois Attorney General
    2. Jesse White (26%) – Illinois Secretary of State
    3. Toni Preckwinkle (5.8%) – Cook County Board President
    4. Rahm Emanuel (5.4%) – Chicago Mayor
    5. Judy Baar Topinka (5%) – Illinois State Comptroller
    6. Pat Quinn (3%) – Illinois Governor

The state AG’s oral regiment should make her dentist proud. A model patient, Madigan says she brushes her teeth at least twice a day and flosses regularly in order to keep her pearly whites ready for the public eye.

“The dentist is my most favorite doctor to visit,” Madigan said. “I am almost religious about seeing my dentist every six months and taking care of my teeth.”

The survey was conducted in preparation for the Chicago Dental Society’s 149th Midwinter Meeting, which will welcome more than 30,000 dentists to McCormick Place from February 20-22.

I’m surprised she didn’t withdraw from the competition before it was over.

Just sayin…

Also, “The dentist is my most favorite doctor to visit”? Pandering like that could get her nicknamed Kirk Dillard.

    “Dentists are the ‘backbone’ of Illinois”

    “The dentist is my most favorite doctor to visit” - greatest disconnect with the public since George H.W. Bush was asked the price of milk…


  3. - Big Muddy - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 10:53 am:

    Why no results for Lt. Gov. Simon?


  4. - a drop in - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 10:59 am:

    This explains why former hockey players rarely become politicians.


  5. - Formerly Known As... - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 10:59 am:

    Those dentists are a key demographic.

    Now Lisa fans for life.


  6. - And I Approved This Message - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 11:00 am:

    That should help her out during oral arguments.


  7. - Anonymous - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 11:06 am:

    She is in Sheila Simon mode. Pfft


  8. - Dave Dahl - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 11:15 am:

    Regiment?


  9. - OneMan - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 11:27 am:

    Did they even include Sheila in the poll?


  10. - shore - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 11:37 am:

    Most of those people have been elected 4-5-6 times to office and have been in the elected office arena at least 15 years which is the states problem.


  11. - Jake From Elwood - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 11:41 am:

    What, no Michael Madigan? This is a guy who eats an apple every day! I suppose he gets some credit for financing Lisa’s first place smile, just like he did her political career.


  12. - A guy... - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 11:42 am:

    both offices do cavity searches, so it kind of makes sense.


  13. - wordslinger - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 12:07 pm:

    That’s not a gag? It really came from her office?

    Did Lisa hire people from “The Onion” to do her p.r. now?

    How sad and embarrassing. She used to be a contender, supposedly.


  14. - Rich Miller - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 12:08 pm:

    ===It really came from her office?===

    No, it came from the dentists.


  15. - Henry Clay - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 12:20 pm:

    Mike Madigan will now propose free dental care for the citizens of Illinois. I am all for it (as long as Mike can get the taxpayers in Wisconsin and Indiana to pay for it).


  16. - Hans Sanity - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 12:33 pm:

    Congrats.

    Give that girl a cigar.


  17. - AG for Life - Monday, Feb 10, 14 @ 8:43 pm:

    See Lisa it pays not to drink too much Tea.
