Cap & Tax 8 Update.

Illinois Rep. Mark Kirk (R) will not run for the open seat of Sen. Roland Burris (D) in 2010, a stunning reversal from just 48 hours ago when Kirk signaled to National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Cornyn (Texas) that he would make the race.
Kirk’s decision, a blow to Senate Republicans’ chances in Illinois, came in the wake of Burris’ formal retirement this afternoon.
It also followed a meeting of the Illinois Republican congressional delegation on Thursday in which his colleagues refused to back Kirk in a primary against Illinois Republican Party Chairman Andy McKenna due, in large part, to his vote in favor of President Barack Obama’s climate change bill.

Finally, the GOP is showing some signs of sanity.

Maybe our letter writing campaign did some good. Wouldn't that be nice?

In Illinois Republican and Democrats are the same animal

Of more significance is the message of party discipline being sent. Mark Kirk is paying the price for his Cap & Tax vote.

Republicans need to narrow their focus to core issues and stop trying to pander to the hard left MSM types who only pretend to like RINOs.

McCain's experience with the MSM in 2008 should be a lesson for all. Lefties will always throw you under the bus when you're no longer useful to them.
