Poor Old Roland Burris roland20burris

This guy has been in some form of public office for over forty years and he finally gets a nod for the big show and it has to be now?

I know he’s pissed.

If you haven’t heard the latest news from Illinois this one caught my eye as one of those “read between the lines” stories.

The Governor of Illinois, this dude here blagojevichWho is now under investigation for trying to sell Obama’s senate seat just went on television to say that Roland Burris is the MAN FOR THE JOB!  Blagojevich went on to say Roland should be judged on his own merits and not by what people “believe” happened recently (meaning Blagojevich’s Senate seat auction allegations).  He is under investigation for trying to sell the senate seat being vacated by Barack Obama.  Blagojevich basically has been blowing the whole thing off.  He won’t leave office even though they have his ass on tape trying to sell the seat and then he makes this announcement?



Potsie makes the announcement at a press conference AND THEN puts poor old Roland in front of the microphone giving him a chance to try and defend his own appointment!

When all the potential candidates heard Rod Blagojevich was continuing with making an appointment I know Roland was like that kid in class praying the teacher doesn’t pick you.

A while back Roland gave an interview blasting Blagojevich about the allegations. 

I guess paybacks are a Blagojevich!

    Blagojevich has been so successful at making himself and his office look ridiculous that about a million people are now able to remember and maybe even spell his crazy name — that’s sort of like an accomplishment, right?
