    I'm absolutely sickened over Kirk representing Illinois. Well, he certainly doesn't represent me or my family. What a slimy little person! ICK!

    Hmm...Bad loss for dems and especially for Obama. That's pretty much a slap in the face.

    everyone should take a look at Kirk;s list of donors and sponsors. He definitely got bucks from insurance companies and PACS as well as law firms. I wonder if he will help China's HSBC acquire the Northern trust Bank. This is really such a slap in the face for the honest, working person. Just another George Ryan is the making . .
