Republicans smell blood in the water and are moving strongly on President Obama’s old Senate seat. Losing that would be… embarrassing,
Keep on dreaming… A Republican winning in Obama’s old senate seat would be as unlikely as, I don’t know, Dennis Kucinich claiming that tea partiers are just people with “basic economic concerns just like everyone else,” or like a Republican becoming the governor of New Jersey, or winning Ted Kennedy’s seat.
I’ll believe it when Air America files for bankruptcy.
I’ll believe it when the (S)Aints make the Superbowl.
The hillbuzz boyz aren’t sanguine about a Mark Kirk win. They also say he’d be a Snowe or Collins if he did win.
At this point I’d settle for a Snow or Collins rather than a Burris or Obama.
I am worried about Kirk’s votes on cap and tax and his stance on assault weapons ban, but compared to the demicrooks that will be running against him, can’t say as I have much of a choice in filling in the oval for Mark. mpw
Now the real question – does this Republican candidate have a messy divorce that can be opened over the objections of both the people who actually got divorced and get splattered across the news in September or so? Because I hear that’s been a problem in the past.
Personally, I get annoyed at headlines like the linked article, “Brown’s win shows Republicans how to seize Obama’s old Illinois Senate seat.”
Why is the word “seized” used when a Republican wins an election to an office previously held by a Democrat? That makes it sound like the Republican took it by force illegitemately. I thought the same thing when reading how “Republicans Seize Control of Congress” back in 1994.
Go back to Hillbuzz lads archives where they lay out just that scenario. Today there’s an entry laying out the way the machine will ride out internal Dem divisions to assure the Mob’s banker gets the primary. To be followed by an ‘outing’ of the assumed Republican candidate.
No way, no how am I voting for him. Not a dime’s difference. Also voted for another black hole – embryonic stem cell research.
Patrick Hughes is the Tea Party-supported candidate running in the primary against Kirk who quacks like a Democrat every time he opens his mouth.
