“And tonight, the big shiny ball drops for the Jeanne Ives campaign for governor”

Monday, Dec 4, 2017

* I swear I did not make up that headline quote. It’s from the official Jeanne Ives for governor kickoff video

* Ives

“I choose taxpaying Illinois families. Governor Rauner chose the political ruling class. That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election… Benedict Rauner betrayed us at every turn.”

* Proft

“We were promised a conservative reform governor. Instead, we got an Ivy League gender studies professor.” - @JeanneIves in announcing her primary challenge to @GovRauner last eve. She joins us at 7:07am. @MorningAnswer

* WGN

Rep. Jeanne Ives of Wheaton says in remarks released early Monday by her campaign that she’ll side with “taxpaying Illinois families” instead of the “political ruling class.” She notes that she supported Rauner’s campaign in 2014, but says Illinois needs a new path.

* Politico

* Ives on Rauner: ‘we got an Ivy League gender studies professor.’ “I supported and helped get Bruce Rauner elected governor in 2014. I believed his argument that his personal wealth would free him to do right by Illinois and lead the revolt against the political ruling class. I was wrong. The tough-talking dude on a Harley with no social agenda turned out to an empty Carhartt jacket. We were promised a conservative reform governor. Instead we got an Ivy League gender studies professor. Benedict Rauner betrayed us at every turn.”

    There’s some straight up fire in that speech, but is anyone gonna hear it?


  2. - Not Rich - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 9:56 am:

    Run Jeanne Run!! Let the bomb throwing begin..


  3. - wordslinger - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 9:57 am:

    – Ivy League gender studies professor–

    I’m pretty sure that’s supposed to be an insult, a real bad one. I just don’t get it.

    Can anyone who speaks Ives’ lingo break it down and translate the meaning?


  4. - MissBentohs - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 9:58 am:

    If she gets money so others can hear this, she may have an impact on Rauner as she seems to be saying the things Republicans want to be said.


  5. - DougChicago - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:01 am:

    Praise God one way or the other we are rid of her by next November.

    Then though I suppose we will have our own local Sarah Palin nut bag. But hopefully the half life on that will be little more than a Warholian 7-1/2 minutes.


  6. - IMissBentohs - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:01 am:

    – Ivy League gender studies professor–
    I don’t get it either wordslinger … and oddly enough I think it is offensive enough that I feel uncomfortable with it.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:04 am:

    ===Ivy League gender studies professor===

    I guess when you want to make the case Rauner is a “costal, limousine, social ultra-liberal agenda” governor…

    … you just make it about an alleged comparison to a left-coast socially liberal Ivy League professor?

    The play is to Trump supporters? Maybe?

    Too cute by half.


  8. - JS Mill - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:05 am:

    -Ivy League gender studies professor-

    I don’t speak “nutbag” so bare with me- it seems to me she is attacking him as Pro-gay rights or pro-LGBTQ or something of that ilk.

    Again, best guess.


  9. - Keyrock - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:07 am:

    Is she saying the Dartmouth and Harvard educated governor is just wearing costumes and putting on an act?


  10. - Macbeth - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:07 am:

    Um, but she hasn’t filed yet?

    This seems odd.


  11. - politico - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:09 am:

    Proft and Ives knew Rauner was an Ivy League gender studies professor but they were OK with it because they wanted his money. Who knows? Maybe Proft is a gender studies professor too. Takes one to know one.


  12. - Jack Kemp - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:13 am:

    “an Ivy League gender studies professor”

    What an absolutely bizarre thing to say.


  13. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:13 am:

    ===“I supported and helped get Bruce Rauner elected governor in 2014.

The tough-talking dude on a Harley with no social agenda turned out to an empty Carhartt jacket. We were promised a conservative reform governor…”===

    Shoulda stopped there, but her campaign is about trying to rip conservatives from Rauner and build support off HB40, sanctuary state, criminal justice reform, any of the things conservatives “feel” are too liberal.

    This is actually good stuff…

    “I supported and helped get Bruce Rauner elected governor in 2014. I believed his argument that his personal wealth would free him to do right by Illinois and lead the revolt against the political ruling class. I was wrong.”

    Like Rep. Breen, this adds credibility by owning the mistake of supporting Rauner, and not dismissing her own role in creating Rauner.

    That’s good.


  14. - Annonin' - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:18 am:

    We assumed it was some closet form of gay bashin’ popular in Wheaton parallel dimension. Were we wrong?


  15. - former southerner - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:23 am:

    “Ivy league professor” dog whistle for the anti-intellectual movement, i.e. Trumpies

    “gender studies” a blank slate for the biased type to insert any gender or orientation they wish for directing their anger.

    Maybe she wants to be the next Pol Pot


  16. - SaulGoodman - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:29 am:

    Ives keeps saying Chicago Democrats didn’t call for all these things… then who sponsored all of that legislation?


  17. - A Jack - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:31 am:

    “Gender Studies Professor” - was she perhaps referencing the less socially acceptable word for wimp? She probably should have just called him a wimp and left it at that.


  18. - cdog - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:38 am:

    “Ivy League gender studies professor,” implies fluidity of principles.

    Probably not the best way to pick that fight.


  19. - Actual Red - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:40 am:

    The “Ivy league gender studies professor dig” is a specific kind of dog whistle that says a lot about where the country is politically.

    Sure, it hits the standard anti-elite chords that always resonate with many American voters, across the political spectrum.

    But, the “gender studies” angle adds an additional layer. Looking at some of the more conservative publications, and especially in comments sections, there’s a feeling among certain segments that the traditional social order is breaking down. See, for an extreme example, Breitbart’s coverage of VA state legislator Danica Roem. Roem’s status as a transgender woman was interpreted as “transgender ideology,” rather than as merely a difference in identity.

    For these people, gay marriage, increasing visibility of trans people, the overall mainstreaming of LGBT stories in popular media, etc. are really scary, because they represent a threat to established norms.

    If you accept the truth, that these developments are the result of genuine grassroots movements of people who want rights and safety, then your resistance to that change feels wrong.

    But what if you see these changes as top-down, the product of an elite, intellectual class, that you already dislike and distrust? Well then, you’re not doing the oppressing, you’re being oppressed! It’s not that you’re afraid of unfamiliar things or people who are different — you’re being forced by elites who know nothing about you to accept their weird lifestyles.

    All that angst is personified by an Ivy League gender-studies professor.


  20. - Jocko - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:42 am:

    In Jeanne’s world, only the hard sciences count. How’s that econ degree working for ya?


  21. - cdog - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:44 am:

    I am extremely glad that West Point Ives, with her degree in economics, wonky financial skills, moral bearing, and mother to 5, is officially on the ballot and declaring her candidacy.

    (The only woman on the ballot. It’s funny that there is not single woman was encouraged by the IL Dem Party to take a shot at governor.)


  22. - SaulGoodman - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:45 am:

    Woh… made it all the way through.

    The commitment on supporting people with DD is stunning. Ives has voted against every single bill that would have ever helped fund these services, workers, etc.

    She tells us to judge her on her legislative record. Okay - we will. Her record is one of screaming loud and doing nothing, and continaully voting AGAINST people with disabiltiies.


  23. - wordslinger - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:49 am:

    – implies fluidity of principles–

    LOL, how so? I’d say honesty is an absent principle in your answer.

    I was kidding when I asked for a translation. Knowing the source, I got the gist of it pretty quickly.


  24. - Phil King - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:52 am:

    “Ivy league gender studies professor” means he’s unconnected to working people and average taxpayers and that he believes in far-Left “social justice” concepts of victimization and cultural marxism.

    Surprised so many didn’t get it.


  25. - Dome Gnome - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:58 am:

    “Ivy League gender studies professor” is an anti-intellectualism dog whistle for Trump supporters. She knows who her base is.


  26. - Flapdoodle - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:59 am:

    =Ivy League gender studies professor=

    1. Dog whistling the Trumpistas
    2. Homophobia
    3. One more thing Ives knows nothing about


  27. - Aware Mom - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:08 am:

    Ives has scored “Poor” on the ICLR (Illinois Community Living Report) for two years running. This is the only legislative scorecard which measures how she’s actually treated Illinois citizens with disabilities during key votes. She can’t premise a run on this particular issue. Pick another talking point, Jeanne.

    https://www.ipaddunite.org/advocacy


  28. - CubsFan16 - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:11 am:

    Gender studies professor? It will be interesting to see if Ives will run somewhat of a substantive campaign. The only real beef she has with Rauner is that he is pro-choice and she is pro-life. Yet it seems she’s determined to just ad-hominem him and scream and yell and hope it works.


  29. - VanillaMan - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:23 am:

    Humans don’t hear dog whistles. Claiming your opponent uses them insults voters who you need to win over for electoral success. Voters are attracted to candidates for good reasons. You have to top those reason to win them over. Don’t insult voters - ever. Let the other side.

    If you don’t respect views opposite of yours, you will lose elections. You will be arrogantly blinded throughout the election. No one really likes snobs.

    Ives is not to be written off. She isn’t to be mocked or insulted, or you’ll make her more attractive to voters.

    Ignore Ives if you want to defeat her.


  30. - Dr X - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:25 am:

    “His personal wealth would free him to do right by Illinois and lead the revolt against the political ruling class.”

    I have never understood this argument. The rich are part and parcel the ruling class. They created it, they benefit from it. They share many, many values.

    So is Ives going to support labor? Nope.


  31. - Anonymous - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:29 am:

    You go, Ives. She is a tough, smart, driven person that has ideas that many here deplore. Fair enough, but with her there will never be a caption “Pick a lane” - if you’re in hers and trying to block, you’ll be a grease spot.


  32. - wordslinger - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:30 am:

    –”Im extremely glad West Point Ives (blah,blah,blah) is officially on the ballot… ”

    You’re extemely confused.The ballot is far from being “official” and Ives has not even filed yet.


  33. - Blue dog dem - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:32 am:

    I wanted to pull a Dem primary ballot to vote against Biss/Pritzker. Now I get to pull a Repub ballot to vote against Rauner. Then I can stay at home in November.


  34. - wordslinger - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:40 am:

    VMan, I hear Ives loud and clear. She ain’t complicated.

    I am certain that “Ivy League gender studies professor” is her way of casting aspersions on what Blago would have called
    Rauner’s testicular virility.


  35. - King Louis XVI - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:47 am:

    –(The only woman on the ballot. It’s funny that there is not single woman was encouraged by the IL Dem Party to take a shot at governor.)

    Not sure that IL GOP encouraged Ives to take a shot at governor.


  36. - Trump2020 - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:48 am:

    “Ivy League gender studies professor” may refer to HB1785, which Rauner signed and is now PA 100-0360.


  37. - VanillaMan - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:49 am:

    Then you shouldn’t ask questions you don’t want answers to ’slinger.

    Watching OW get trolled by you is embarrassing.


  38. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:52 am:

    ===Watching OW get trolled by you is embarrassing.===

    Huh?

    What?


  39. - NIU Grad - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:55 am:

    “The only real beef she has with Rauner is that he is pro-choice and she is pro-life.”

    She also has frequently targeted the LGBT community and he has signed every pro-equality piece of legislation he has received. “We’re here to talk about economics” can only get her so far, and this gender studies remark is just the first salvo.


  40. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 11:58 am:

    - BanillaMan -

    You must be thinking I’m - cdog -?

    Ugh.

    To the Post,

    Ives helps Rauner.

    These ridiculous words allow Rauner to take his 65% or so win and point to the extreme Ives as who “we all should fear”

    Ives helps Rauner.

  46. - Anon - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 1:32 pm:

    not to be nitpick, but the flags are placed wrong on her stage. As somebody who will run as a veteran and as a patriot who loves this state and loves this country, the least she can do is honor flag protocol and place the US flag in its proper place.


  47. - Amalia - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 1:42 pm:

    oh, so Ives and her big shiny ball have invented a new phrase game now we await her list. put together any two of a list of phrases to code flash the right wing into voting. her first offering, ivy league and gender studies. ooh, what’s next? spin the big shiny ball and find out.


  48. - Skeptic - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 1:50 pm:

    “I don’t speak “nutbag” so bare with me-” Given all the recent headlines, perhaps that’s not the best thing we should do. Just sayin’.


  49. - VanillaMan - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 3:19 pm:

    Anyone saying that Ives and Palin are similar is exposing themselves as having never listened to either person. They are completely different speakers in sentence structure, vocal tone, word selection and volume.

    It’s a silly thing to say.
    Try to convince people not to support Ives by basing your rationale on real, not imagined personal traits.


  50. - old time golfer - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 3:21 pm:

    So i will be the first one to ask the magic question. Is Proft working for free or can we expect him to make a cool million off of HIS IDEA to run IVES?????


  51. - Anonymous - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 3:31 pm:

    =Try to convince people not to support Ives by basing your rationale on real, not imagined personal traits.=

    It’s not my job to convince people not to support Ives. And frankly I don’t think I could do a better job of this than Jeanne.

    It’s too bad that Rauner doesn’t have credible opposition. And my dislike for Rauner will never translate into any positive feelings towards Ives. As far as I can tell she’s pretty much cut from the same ideological cloth as Rauner except for a handful of social issues.


  52. - VanillaMan - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 4:52 pm:

    After reading through your rebuttal it seems that you have feelings about this based upon no real facts.

    Try again.
    Please explain where Ives fails regarding credibility.
    Please explain how you see a pro-life candidate and a pro-abortion candidates “cut from the same ideological clothe.


  53. - VanillaMan - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 4:56 pm:

    ==And frankly I don’t think I could do a better job of this than Jeanne.==

    Obviously


  54. - Ron - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 4:56 pm:

    Ives is literally one of the worst possible candidates any party could propose for governor. If she became the Rep candidate, we are guaranteed Pritzker or Kennedy.


  55. - blue dog dem - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 5:02 pm:

    Sorry Ron. Rauner has zero chance of winning. My vote for Ives is priciple based. Doesn’t matter if Dutch himself was running. Its going to be a slaughter.


  56. - Ron - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 9:52 pm:

    I like having real options though. Ives is the not an option.


  57. - Ste_with_a_ven - Monday, Dec 4, 17 @ 10:57 pm:

    Ives denies common decency and supports hate groups. Speaks for itself.
