Republicans take Obama's old Senate seat

Senate Republicans on Monday formally claimed President Obama’s former Senate seat with the swearing-in of Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.).

This is not exactly what Mr. Obama and the Democrats wanted - for a Republican to take Obama's old Senate seat.

One commenter said it looks like Obama got hit in the chops twice in a week, referring to the fat lip he acquired during a basketball pickup game in the White House.
