    As I have repeatedly said.
    All Politicians lie, they do this so as to be both electable and elected.
    Once they have been elected their first course of action is to look after their own welfare.
    I can only recall one Politician who once elected, refused to look after his own welfare.
    I am unable to recall that he has achieved anything.
    So in order to achieve anything in either House or Senate it is essential that one feathers ones own nest.
    Is this what the Founding Fathers wanted?

    Holy ****, this just gets worse and worse:



    Outstanding. Toss this guy out of the Senate, charge him with perjury and let IL have an election.
    The special election costs too much, it's not going to happen. Get him for perjury? Because he's a senator that lied??

    He's just got 2 years to go.

    Because he is a senator that lied under oath.

    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Throw Burris out. I can't believe they tried to get away with this.

    I think the timing of this is fishy too.
    They waited until after the Porkzilla vote.

    If he had been exposed a few days before, this would have changed the press cycle some, it would have lost the Dems a vote, and it could have given the party and public more time to voice their opposition, hoping one of the Three Numbskulls wouldn't allow them to get to 60.

    The timing is a bit like showing the interview of Juanita #5 after the impeachment vote.
    They had to know Burris lied earlier.

    Tin hat off.

    This should bring Burris his walking papers pretty soon. If it goes longer than a month, deep stains will remain on the D Party.

    I thought this guy was clean, I mean he's a Democrat isn't he? :
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
