Roland Burris Update

I was Googling "Roland Burris" for an update on his status a few minutes ago and ran across this gem:

Think Democratic leadership is going to yank Roland Burris soon? Think again. “There is already a process in place that includes investigations by Illinois state officials and the Senate Ethics Committee,” Reid spokesman Jim Manley said. “Let’s let the appropriate process play out and let all the facts come to light. But, in the meantime, he is still a Member of the Senate."

In other words, "He ain't no Republican, so let's see if it will go away quietely.  Besides, we need that extra vote in the Senate."  If Burris were a Republican, you could expect a much different reaction to this whole situation.

Amen, T.C.

Think Bernard Kerik, Bush's initial choice for Homeland Security chief. A single house lady, illegal that she was, caused an uproar in the media and his eventual self-removal.

Too bad the same cannot be said for half of Hopey One's staff.

Rules only apply to Republicans.
