Why O’ why does Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) 15% even bother calling himself a Republican anymore.

Tuesday he somehow manages to be the only so-called member of the GOP to vote FOR sanctuary cities and allowing the to keep federal funding while they nullify federal immigration law.

Even West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin knew better than to say yes to allowing 340 cities and counties to continue to refuse immigration detainers for criminal illegal immigrants.

This after being given an award Monday by an Illinois anti-gun group and tweeting out a line about needing the close the gun show loophole and blaming Wisconsin, Indiana, and Mississippi???(WTF?!?) for the guns being used in all of the gang and drug violence in Chicago, Rockford, and elsewhere in Illinois.


Before that Kirk was voting to keep Planned Parenthood and its baby butchery fully funded.

Before that he was working with Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 54% and the Democrats to revive the corporate welfare of the Export-Import bank, which we now find out could be used to give out loans to Iran thanks to the nuclear deal.

Before that he was voting for many of President Obama’s radical nominees.

Mark Kirk has pissed off the pro-life community, gun owners, anyone who believes in traditional marriage, budget hawks and penny pinchers won’t like it when it become more widely know that he and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) 41%(someone else who should stop calling himself a Republican) are sharing office space at something known in Rockford as the Bus Station to Nowhere, a multi million dollar waste of taxpayer money(that also happens to lose thousands monthly).

There isn’t a conservative, a Tea Partier, or a rank and file Republican in Illinois that has any intention of helping Kirk in his reelection, and with a resume like that, who can blame them.

We can blame Mark Kirk for running in and identifying himself with the wrong political party.
