Mark Kirk — “Moderate” Republican
Congressman Mark Kirk has won the Republican nomination to run for Obama’s old Senate seat this November. He’s supposed to be the most “moderate” of the Republican candidates who were running in the Illinois primary.
Well, everything’s relative.
I first heard of Mark Kirk last summer, when he introduced legislation to INCREASE the penalties for marijuana possession. He wants a 25-year minimum sentence for anyone who “distributes” marijuana that has a THC content of 15% or higher. Passing a joint around at a party, giving a joint to a friend — that’s Distributing. Twenty-five years!
I did a post on it at the time.
Twenty-five years for “distributing” marijuana?!?!? This must be part of that “Freedom!” and “Limited Government!” that conservatives are always blubbering about.
This dickwad is a “Moderate???” According to whose logic???
Sorry I asked.
It’ll be a sick commentary on the American public (as if we haven’t had enough of that already) if Barack Obama’s Senate seat goes to this putrid sack of shit.
