It’s always possible that Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL) just bailed on his anticipated Senate run upon hearing that Roland Burris would neither be his opponent in the general election nor drain the actual Democrat nominee’s resources and standing in certain quarters of the minority community.
I like to think the truth is closer to Kirk having found little love (but instead much indifference, even revulsion) after his craven vote in favor of the Waxman-Markey global warming tax (passed 219-212), surely made with an eye toward running a race along the lines of other failed, squishy “look at me I’m a non-threatening Republican…media, where are you going, I thought you’d love this…?” predecessors.
It is tough, after all, to raise money when people wonder why bother given that you’ll flee on the votes that really count, and otherwise on those votes presenting a clear-cut distinction between philosophies. I also like to think that that word is getting around. 7 more House Rs, a few Senate candidates and 2 aspiring governors to go.
But is there any chance Kirk can change his vote now?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
