Having spent a year undergoing intense physical therapy to relearn to walk and speech therapy to relearn speech after his brain was severely damaged I wonder if Kirk feels at all bad about his anti-Obamacare vote.
Kirk ran on this slogan in 2010, “I’m Mark Kirk and I can’t wait to vote against the health care bill next week.”
Probably not. Doctrinal Republicans never feel sorry for their I Got Mine-ism. Had Senator Kirk been a working man, a teacher, or an enlisted Veteran he'd have been bankrupted and probably forced to choose to discontinue therapy before competition if he had even had a Healthcare coverage plan which didn't seek to fire him for missing a year of work.
Of course, Senator Kirk committed a similar infraction to the one which resulted in Jesse Jackson Jr. expulsion from Congress, in that Senator Kirk used his campaign to funnel money to his then girlfriend, Dodie McCracken.
The girlfriend, Dodie McCracken, who works in public relations, has acknowledged receiving more than $143,000 in fees and expenses for her campaign work. A former live-in girlfriend, she is no longer romantically involved with Kirk, according to a campaign aide.But, Faux News doesn't ever have to cover anything, like Senator Kirk's health vis-a-vis his stance on National Healthcare or his financial improprieties, which will cause their mouth-breathing constituents to pause and reflect. IOKIYAR.
At the heart of the matter is Vertolli's assertion that the Kirk campaign may have improperly hidden money to McCracken by paying her through another company working for the campaign. Because the money was not paid directly to McCracken, her name does not appear in Kirk's federal disclosures.
On the other hand, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has continued to be vilified and ridiculed for her Health problems. Because after all she's a Democrat, a Woman and a Clinton.
Merely having one of those qualities makes acceptable fodder for Right-Wing assassination fantasies.
Laura Ingraham laughingly declared Secretary of State Clinton's concussion was the "Immaculate Concussion"! See that's funny!!!
Even after the discovery of a life-threatening blood clot John Bolton, Charles Krauthammer, Jonah Goldberg, Glenn Reynolds and other Right-Wing scum merchants doubled down and increased their despicable month long smears about Hillary Clinton.
Toxic Conservative commentators know the truth. They can spout off their heinous theories and it feeds and enflames their audience instead of alienating them. Despicable conservative liars will, of course, claim 'Both Sides Do It!' and that's bullshit.
No one was claiming Dick Cheney's multiple heart attacks were too avoid testifying to the 9/11 Commission (Remember that whole 9/11 thing?) or the Iraq War WMD lies. Yes, Comedians joked that Dick Cheney's stole the hearts from the breasts of children to extend his despicable war criminal life but, major networks didn't bring on guest after guest (including high-ranking former Federal Government employees) to laugh and jibe about a potentially life-threatening medical condition.
If the Right didn't have False Equivalencies they'd have no Equivalence at all.
Faux News can never silence the Right-Wing extremists who espouse Clinton Conspiracy Theories because that is their audience.
The only Americans who continue to adhere to Right-Wing Ideology are bigots, sexists, religious fanatics and the Rich.
Conservatism is Terrorism.
