Is Congressman Mark Kirk Fabulous?

How fabulous is Mark Kirk? Fabulous enough to merit the 10th District Congressman an encore appearance, yesterday, on Rachel Maddow:

Congressman Kirk, fabulist
Operatives no doubt are wondering: left-leaning, pro-gay-rights Rachel Maddow may be expected to call Mark Kirk a lot of things. But fabulous is not one of them. What's up with that?

\Fab"u*lous\ (f[a^]b"[-u]*l[u^]s), a. [L. fabulosus; cf. F. fabuleux. See Fable.]

1. Feigned, as a story or fable; related in fable; devised; invented; not real; fictitious; as, a fabulous description; a fabulous hero.

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
