“Zig-zagging the state”

Thursday, Sep 25, 2014

* Terry James at WJBC

Republican Lt. Gubernatorial Candidate Evelyn Sanguinetti made a stop in Bloomington Thursday morning to talk an alleged secret program by Governor Pat Quinn to release prisoners early.

Sanguinetti says those criminals went on to commit more crime. WJBC News asked Sanguinetti what the Rauner administration would do about crime in Illinois if elected.

“For starters it’s not to have the secret program to put criminals out on the street and putting our families in jeopardy,” said Sanguinetti. “As a mother of three small children, I would have certainly liked to know and object.”

* Many thanks to Terry for the raw audio, which is simply priceless

    At the rate rauner inc is going he might consider being more prudent in his criticism of early release.


  2. - Linus - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:45 pm:

    I feel duly zig-zagged after listening to this.


  3. - Jimmy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:46 pm:

    And I’m going to keep zig-zagging the state until you stop asking me basic policy questions…


  4. - Edwardsburg - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:46 pm:

    Horrible, but nothing will beat Plummer on Chicago Tonight in 2010.


  5. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:49 pm:

    The secret program ole Slip and Sue doesn’t line about is to have her zig zag throughout Illinois, avoiding the Press at all costs.

    Slip and Sue is possibly the most inept candidats for LG who is clueless to how inept he/she really is.

    How Slip and Sue is not embarrassed by her incompetence is mind-boggling.


  6. - walker - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:50 pm:

    Absolutely clueless.


  7. - No Longer A Lurker - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:50 pm:

    Well she certainly zig zagged around the reporters question.


  8. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:50 pm:

    “Zig-Zagging across the State.” That explains quite a bit right there.


  9. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:51 pm:

    Plummer knew, at some point, he was inept in the big picture, …Slip and Sue, pathetically, thinks she is helping, lol


  10. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:55 pm:

    She had a somewhat kinda sorta decent close, but the problem was wading through all the rest of the zig-zagging.


  11. - Dizzy Cow - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 4:59 pm:

    Willie Horton lives in Illinois now?

    That worked for Lee because he was one of the greatest to ever live the cats running this camping aren’t even in the room.

    The hook is not that it’s a secret program the hook is that you’re in danger and you don’t even know it.

    Fix the messaging before you play in the mud


  12. - phocion - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:03 pm:

    REE-Form.


  13. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:13 pm:

    Has Rauner released his medical records yet? He seems pretty fit, but I don’t think we should take any chances…


  14. - Pot calling kettle - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:13 pm:

    “We have no program to address crime, not even a secret program.”


  15. - MrJM - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:26 pm:

    Give Sanguinetti a break. She simply misspoke.

    She meant to say, “We’ve been flim-flamming the state.”

    – MrJM


  16. - naperville soccer mom - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:38 pm:

    Can you still go cowtipping while you are zigzagging?


  17. - John Boch - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:39 pm:

    We have been zig-zagging through the state trying to talk about…

    … what was it we were talking about?

    We need more prisoner releases — er, I mean jobs for Illinois!

    I’m here today to tell you about our plan to criss cross Illinois’ voters in all 57 counties so we can have more jobs than food stamp recipients in the next four months.


  18. - Magic Dragon - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:41 pm:

    Come on Evelyn. You and your running mate need to become acquainted with the law. Derrick Almon was never released from prison early nor is there any such early release program. He was released when he statutorily had to be released, based on his sentence from the courts. What makes this despicable is you know that and yet you continue to try and mislead the public.


  19. - Macbeth - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 5:54 pm:

    She’s insane. Bat-crazy insane. I’ll never vote for Rauner, but the fact that he chose her is bizarre — especially when he could have picked someone … less insane and more informed about, oh, actual policy.

    She’s so serious that she’s insane. She has no idea that she’s insane.


  20. - Michelle Flaherty - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:14 pm:

    “zig zagging”.
    she’s sending code that she’s for decriminalization.


  21. - Gage Park - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:25 pm:

    Gosh, she does not sound comfortable one bit.


  22. - Macbeth - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:31 pm:

    It’s pretty clear that no one has coached her about being … less insane. If I were on the fence, she’d push me over to Quinn and Vallas.

    It’s not like Plummer — but, yeah, it’s a lot like Plummer.


  23. - tikkunolam - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:32 pm:

    Wait, do they actually not have any policy ready on crime? Rich, your headline yesterday was “Rauner pivots to crime.” What kind of message calendar are they running if they’re pivoting without any policy ready? It doesn’t have to be the Moynihan Report, but sheesh, have an answer ready when they ask what the plan is.


  24. - Chi - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:35 pm:

    It’s a fiscal agenda… Term limits, education reeeform…

    I kinda feel bad for her: first statewide campaign, she’s obviously not ready, but add to her plight the fact that she’s gotta become immediately proficient in the double-talk Rauner has spent a career perfecting. And then she has to combine her attempt at snake oil salesmanship with her obvious orders from above to stay strictly on message: zigzag is just one example of something she was obviously told to say by handlers.

    She really sounds awful. Has she agreed to any debates? Vallas will be in the position Biden was with Palin- be extremely careful not to condescend or run up the score…


  25. - Macbeth - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:43 pm:

    Plus, this idea of “jobs, jobs, jobs” is essentially meaningless with Rauner. He’s outsourced jobs and he’s fired workers from his various bankrupted firms.

    What in the world — and I can’t say this emphatically emough — what in the world makes people thing that a guy — an old, rich white guy — so cavalier about the jobs he’s vanquished over 20+ years — what makes people think that this kind of guy — this amoral, rabid capitalist — can possibly attract — or, better yet, *create* jobs — in a state like Illinois?

    Where is Rauner’s record on jobs? He’s fired people, he’s laid off people, and he’s bankrupted firms. What’s this old, rich, pro-abortion white guy gonna do to attract *jobs* to Illinois?

    It’s bat-crazy insane. I’d say it more emphatically, but I can’t.


  26. - Macbeth - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:45 pm:

    I mean, “anti-abortion, pro -life”.

    Obviously, Rauner is opposed to abortions despite his “no social agenda” agenda — shorthand for “I’m as convervative as they come — and then some.”


  27. - AFSCME Steward - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:49 pm:

    It is always a telltale sign of someone in a situation way over their head when they can only tell you what they wouldn’t do and can’t articulate what they would do.


  28. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:49 pm:

    For entertainment purposes, we need a Sanguinetti and Plummer ticket for 2018!


  29. - Mike Smythe - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 6:50 pm:

    Other than more catnip for Willy to bash the lady, so what? She stuck to her talking points,and gave a canned response. Now if she threw in lines like she “always does the right thing” and her”heart is pure” her answer to the question would go unnoticed.


  30. - Vote Quimby! - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:01 pm:

    How did Sarah Palin end up on the Illinois ballot?


  31. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:04 pm:

    ===Other than more catnip for Willy to bash the lady, so what?===

    Does that zig-zagging magician sound like she is capable to run the 5th largest state in America?

    It’s not bashing, when she decides to answer with Dopey responses, and zig zagging, lol.


  32. - wordslinger - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:12 pm:

    –Wait, do they actually not have any policy ready on crime?–

    They’re against it.

    Definitely.


  33. - PoolGuy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:19 pm:

    maybe her plan is to put parolees on “double secret release probation” not just plain old secret probation.


  34. - Anonymous - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:21 pm:

    Remember: if the Rauner/Sanguinetti ticket wins, the women of Illinois lose.


  35. - MrJM - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:34 pm:

    “Other than more catnip for Willy to bash the lady, so what?”

    Other than her demonstration that she’s not ready to be the assistant manager at a Little Caesars, so what?

    – MrJM


  36. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:49 pm:

    ( Tips cap to - Mr.JM -, still striving to be as pithy. Failing)

    @FakeSlip&Sue - ever since Bruce got all those waivers signed, I am allowed to zig-zag all over Illinois, Bruce just won’t appear as a witness. #SlipAnd ZigSueAndZag


  37. - tikkunolam - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 7:53 pm:

    –They’re against it.

    Definitely.–

    I’m sure ISP will appreciate the new marching orders. Sheesh.


  38. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:00 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - we are definitely against crime, that’s true. As a lawyer and a mother that is a straight answer. #ForgotToAddMyHeight


  39. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:03 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - Zig-Zag? Uncle Jerry and Uncle Bill called it duck and cover. I still don’t get it #GroundhogCampaign


  40. - zatoichi - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:10 pm:

    She selling 1.0 or 1.25?


  41. - Norseman - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:27 pm:

    Evelyn Sanguinetti who? I thought a person named Slip N Sue was the candidate for lite gov


  42. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:34 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - I guess that answer zigged, when I should have zagged. #ZigOrZagJystDontFall


  43. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:40 pm:

    - Norseman -, lol.

    @FakeSlip&Sue - I am known as a lawyer, a 4′11″ feisty Co-Governor, magician, even a hidden secret weapon #KnownAsPlaintiffToo


  44. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:42 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - you have to excuse me, criminal law isn’t really my background #Torts #Insurance #PersonalInjury


  45. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 8:44 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - they told me to be careful of people filming me, not recording me #DontWorryWordsPaintThePicture


  46. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:09 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - I remind myself Bruce has been successful at everything. That must mean in choosing me too #WannaBet


  47. - not the worst Lt. Gov. - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:09 pm:

    When she’s sworn in, she will never be in danger of being the worst Lt. Gov. In history.

    That distinction, of course, belongs to Pat Quinn.


  48. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:13 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - the only secret program I know Bruce has is Operation Rubber Sole. I keep telling Bruce it’s Rubber Soul #SlippingPastMe


  49. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:19 pm:

    ===When she’s sworn in, she will never be in danger of being the worst Lt. Gov. In history.===

    @FakwSlip&Sue - I may not be the worst, but Bruce and his health will be the most watched in IL history #FrequentVitaminsAndCheckUps


  50. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:22 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - I need to brush up on my criminal law. Even when I see it I don’t report it #AG #ForgotTheReportingPart


  51. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:25 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - the only secret I don’t know this campaign season is how I got here #DefectiveSortingHatAtHogwarts


  52. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:28 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - all this talk about Quinn and hiring, think about if I got that job I wanted in the Quinn Admin & how different it would all be #QuinnHeadacheNotBruces


  53. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:31 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - I told Bruce, right away, I was worried about jobs, jobs, jobs. He failed to ask if I only met a job for me. Quinn didn’t make that mistake #InterviewIntervention


  54. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:36 pm:

    @FakeSlip&Sue - that question guy got me so upset I put a hex on tape to only play what I thought were good answers. I showed him #HidingTheGoodAnswers

    MrJM has won the Golden Horseshoe with that comment. The contest is over.


  56. - DuPage Bard - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:52 pm:

    I believe the comment was- the number one job of an elected is public safety, but yet she doesn’t know how to define or even what public safety is. I just want to know who is the real life Woody Harrelson character that has to follow her around and write the cue cards for her and teach her to pronounce the long words and tough names.


  57. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:52 pm:

    Well, well deserved.

    He makes all his comments count.


  58. - Responsa - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 9:58 pm:

    not good.

    they must be related….as such…..


  60. - Moist von Lipwig - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 10:29 pm:

    The first decision that we saw Rauner make was choosing Sanguinetti, and he chose someone who it seems had no qualifications and very little real substance. He’s been successful in everything he’s done — including picking a Lite Gov nominee who’s a joke.


  61. - illini - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 10:39 pm:

    I thought I was listening to Sarah Palin. Bruce, your pick scares the h##l out of me. What happened to Jason - kind of miss him this year.


  62. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 10:42 pm:

    @FakeJasonPlummer - I am around -illini -, I am just as speechless as Evelyn should be #KnewYallWouldMissMeSomeday


  63. - Madison - Thursday, Sep 25, 14 @ 11:11 pm:

    Willy perhaps Jason has another long lost sister besides Anne!


  64. - 13thone - Friday, Sep 26, 14 @ 12:27 am:

    Can you Imagine standing in court before a Judge and FakeSlip and Sue is your Attorney? She is an Attorney, isn’t she?
