Is 10th District Congressman Mark Kirk really still milking this Hamlet routine of his? Maybe yes. Maybe no. Your LakeCountyEye's magic crystal ball does know that mean old Uncle Claudius in this case happens to be Top Republican Party Boss, Andy McKenna. McKenna is also eyeing Obama's old Senate seat -- the same seat that has already been promised to Kirk. Naturally this doesn't sit well with Kirk. Probably because Kirk and McKenna side-by-side would be indistinguishable to the typical primary voter. Andy Martin. (Martin already is claiming credit for chasing Kirk out of the Senate competition.)
Kirk doesn't want a Senate primary because in all likelihood that gets him a Pace-pass to the nearest IDES office. But as things stand, McKenna isn't backing down either. The word on the street is Kirk, McKenna and other party poobahs plan to powwow some more this weekend.
At this point your LakeCountyEye signs off with some lame closer like stay tuned until Monday. But the magic crystal ball clearly indicates that Kirk & McKenna's Alphonse & Gaston routine is already in the cross-hairs of the MSM blogs and risks doing some permanent harm for everyone. Just sayin!
