A few months ago good friend and Webloggin contributor Megan Fox got into it with a rude staffer from Illinois Republican Mark Kirk’s office. Megan was all up in arms over legitimate concerns about Mr. Kirk’s voting record. She had called into his office to voice her complaint and was met by a staffer that tried to convince her that she was wrong and gave her the cold shoulder after learning that she did not live in Kirk’s 10th district (this kind of treatment will hopefully come to haunt Kirk’s potential Senate bid).
Megan was challenged by a reader to her blog to provide evidence that Kirk was as bad as she said he was after writing about her issues with the flimsy Republican.
Before I detail Megan’s illuminating response let’s consider last night’s sellout by Mr. Kirk and 7 other tax and spend Republicans that voted on the bogus global warming boondoggle, forever known as the Waxman-Malarkey bill. Kirk joined another Illinois sellout in endorsing that legislation as he joined hands with Democrat Debbie Halverson who had at one time stated that Barack Obama could not pressure her into voting for cap-and-trade legislation, (video here), Halverson’s lie exposed here. (please read all about Halverson at the video link provided.)
Elected weasels like Halverson and Mark Kirk couldn’t get away with this crap without the help of a complicit media. Kirk has used his past experience in the military to chum up to the normally responsible radio talk show hosts Don Wade and Roma at WLS. The wade’s son is a flying ace and up and comer in high places in Washington D.C. Every time Kirk shows up on the morning show the hosts give him a kissy lovefest and an agenda is furthered.
That is why bloggers like Megan are so indispensable because they are not afraid to say what needs to be said; and neither are we. We are not afraid to tell the NRCC NOT ONE MORE RED CENT!! Megan did the job that the friendly media refused to do and exposed Kirk for the sellout phony that he is nearly two months ago! Continue reading
