    Blagojevich to name Roland Burris to Obama's Senate seat

    Blagojevich to name Roland Burris to Obama's Senate seat

    Blagojevich to name Roland Burris to Obama's Senate seat :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Gov. Blagojevich


    "I have previously stated publicly I cannot cosign a document that certified any appointment by Rod Blagojevich for the vacant United States Senate seat in Illinois. Although I have respect for former Attorney General Roland Burris, because of the current cloud of controversy surrounding the governor, I cannot accept the document," White said.

    Former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris, 71, had lobbied the governor for the position in recent weeks.




    Looks like a game of quienes mas macho is brewing in IL..... Blago is some kinda nut to appoint ANYONE.........




    I would like to add, It would be to Obama's benefit to stay the hell away from these shenanigans.....

    Why? What's the downside in doing this for Blagojevich?

    I actually thing that Blago is going to survive this. Just a hunch. Think Marion Barry.

    Burris itsn't necessarily a bad appointment when you consider the politics of the area, my only bitch is that Blogo is flagrantly defying the whole process and asserting innocence when they've got him dead bang on corruption. The whole process is a slap in the face to all of us, but especially Il. state voters IMHO. I agree with Shiznit though, it looks like he is trying to set up a case for the insanity defense.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The scary thing is that is completely possible.

    Marion Barry was oppressed and set up by the white devil. Blago doesn't have that same card to play.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Blago is crazy, crazy as a fox. He knows exactly what he's doing - he's making the democrats very uncomfortable because they want to bring him down fast.

    The fact that Burris is african-american and very qualified was the perfect ploy for Blago.


    I'm telling you, the guy is fearless.
