Gov Pat Quinn says a new television ad from his Democratic opponent reminds him of when President Obama was heckled during an address to Congress.
"I think that just is not a good way to go in a democracy. I believe in civility and decency. I’m going to run a positive campaign," Quinn said Friday.
In the ad, Comptroller Dan Hynes says Quinn "is lying" about the early prison release program.
In the Quinn ad, the narrator says the governor supports moving some non-violent criminals to half-way houses so prison space can be used to house the state’s most violent offenders.
It’s on, South-Park-style.
Let’s remember as this madness continues that both of these guys are good men, both men of good character.
Through February 2, however, they’ll both be acting like characters.
Gentlemen, please, under no circumstances are you permitted to say in an ad, "What’s he thinking?"
If you do, I won’t vote the office at all.
