The Illinois primaries are over and the winners are Mark Kirk and Alexi Ginnoulias. Both are bad choices. Mark Kirk was part of the Cap and Tax 8 and has a very long history of RINO behavior. Alexi Ginnoulias is your typical sleazy Chicago politician whose family bank is in the hole for millions and made loans to the likes of Tony Resko.
So what to do? If I were voting in Illinois, I would let Ginnoulias win. I know, I know, how could I do such a think? Simple, it is a matter of quality vs. quantity. For too long, we have been playing the numbers game. Get as many Republicans in as possible for the sake of seeing Democrats loose and the results have always been the same ... we get unreliable votes when we need them the most.
Mark Kirk is a RINO in bold caps. His record speaks for itself. What is to be gained by sending yet another RINO to the senate? Sure, we get to give Obama another black eye like in Massachusetts, but what does it cost us? Six years of unreliable votes, thats what. Will Kirk hold true to fiscal conservatism and vote to make the hard choices needed to bring our insane deficit under control, or will Kirk wander off the reservation when the first sob story about “do it for the children” comes along? The truth is we have no idea what we are getting into and that is the problem with RINOs.
With Giannoulias, we know we know exactly what we are getting; a friend of Obama and another corrupt lefty who will solidly vote his party line. But here is the thing; the Democrats are going to lose seats in the Senate in 2010 no matter what. One more crook won’t make a difference. Republicans are looking like they will win in many states that have far better candidates than Kirk, candidates who will solidly vote for fiscal sanity.
Scott Brown was Americas Panic Button. We elected him because he promised to stop the insanity of ObamaCare. We may yet rue the day we elected him for other reasons, but for now he was our saving grace. Mark Kirk on the other hand is no Panic Button, we will not be in desperate need of one more vote and tweaking Obama’s nose one more time isn’t worth six years of the unknown.
