The merry pranksters from "RepubliCorp," a tongue-in-cheek political group in the vein of Billionaires for Bush, opens a "Mark Kirk for Senate HQ" immediately outside the Chicago Chinese Consulate. Mark Kirk is now notorious for his "Beijing Fundraiser" which preceeded by one day Kirk's vote against closing tax loopholes for companies that outsource jobs overseas.

We need more hilarity like this to get the attention of folks who don't ordinarily pay attention to politics. Kirk and his entire political party are completely cozy with Chinese interests and big corporations moving US jobs overseas and getting a tax break because of it.
