Mark Kirk at the City Club: Restore Trust in Government (UPDATED)

UPDATED: Here is the full video of the Kirk City Club speech from (thanks to long-time commentor "foklaeaps" for the link):

Original Post:

In case you missed Mark Kirk at the sold-out luncheon at the City Club this past Monday, here is the video. If anyone is wavering over whether Mark Kirk or Alexi Giannoulias would be a better U.S. Senator, just watch this video, and wait until he starts talking about the dangers faced by the U.S. and the world from terrorism and rogue nations, and then the national debt crisis (which is now being seen in a new light given the problems in Greece and other European nations). [TA's note: after I watched the whole thing, I realized this video clip is only from the first half of the speech, which focuses more on corruption issues. Mark really gets warmed up later in the speech, so I will try to get that footage and post it ]

Mark's deep foreign policy and economic knowledge alone ought to be enough to convince you that we NEED Mark Kirk in the U.S. Senate.

As I said over at Cap Fax Blog yesterday in response to the "Question of the Day," Mark Kirk is to rocket science as Alexi is to model rockets. 'nuf 'sed.

as I said last week, the only place to watch the full thing as well as that of sexy alexi is on under the search term city club of chicago, they upload them 2 weeks after so for now you can watch alexi and barf along with him, and then in a few days the mark speech will be up. there are also past speeches of mark up there.

Here's an interesting post re: Mark Kirk and Kimberly Vertolli re: DADT that I just ran across.

Nice job, Ms. Vertolli.
