Kirk vs the Loser - Round II

Last year Congressman Mark Kirk (R-IL), a childhood friend of mine successfully defended his congressional seat against a carpetbagging Democrat named Dan Seals who lives outside of the 10th congressional district. As far as I could determine last fall Mr. Seals doesn't actually do anything, the guy is unemployed and has been out of work for a large portion of this century. The man's job is to be a Democratic candidate, like I said, he ain't working. He spent last year campaigning and the year before planning his campaign. Additionally he is another Democratic Candidate who refuses to live in his district. Last fall I wrote:

The Democrats of Chicago’s North Shore are angling to replace a man with qualifying experience with a guy who worked in a bank for ten years. Mr. Seals has spent the last year campaigning rather than working. This shows a real lack of seriousness on the part of the Democrats. Additionally one can assume that Mr. Seals is just another tool of the Chicago Democrats, and one would be correct. So if you want an empty suit who has no knowledge of our military at a time when the United States has been under attack from a new type of warfare by all means vote for the Democrat. After all, Seals was endorsed by al qaeda (as have all of the Democratic candidates). It seems that the best thing that Mr. Seals has going for him is his looks, a pretty shallow reason to vote for someone. If you want a centrist who actually understands both what is at stake and how to prosecute our defense you should vote for Mark Kirk.

Look, I know that the district is very expensive but maybe the guy could afford to live there if he, you know, got a job.

Listen just becuse he doesnt live in the district and is controlled by the chicago macine doesnt mean hes a bad guy. He could run against his congresperson but her husband might have made some friends in prison so hes afraid of her.
