Illinois Can’t Catch a Break

Mark Kirk is a Republican senator from Illinois. The guy is horrible, incapable of performing any duties at all, and has done absolutely nothing for Illinois. (Like Rauner, he’s not a whole lot into working.)

Kirk is being challenged for his seat by Democrat Tammy Duckworth who had every chance of winning. That is, until she decided that now is a good time to promote the idea of bringing 100,000 Syrian refugees to the US.

Illinois is a state without a budget that can barely manage to keep its 911 lines open, with a dysfunctional political process and a tanking economy. The last thing voters of any political persuasion want right now is a debate on refugees. But the stupid twat just had to go and step into it, and now Kirk is milking this mistake to death.

  1. Incumbents always have advantages. Duckworth barely won her last election and for her first election Rahm Emanuel had to spend over a million dollars in the primary to beat her opponent by four points and lose to the incumbent by four points.
    I don’t know what she thinks she’s going to do as the junior senator from Illinois. My impression of her is that she’s a good person but a weak politician.

    1. The Senate needs to be retaken at some point unless we want Hillary to spend all 8 years crippled by a hostile Senate. Every Dem voice counts but we keep losing because Democratic candidates are more tone – death than grizzly bears.
