Burris and Blago Update

To the surprise of no one, it seems that Roland Burris lied .... uh ... "forgot about" certain phone conversations with former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich and his brother. Recently released tapes had the Senator who bought ... uh .... was appointed to ... the seat once held by Obama, backpedaling regarding his previous testimony to the Illinois state Senate. 

Once upon a time, the U.S. Senate began "taking a stand" against the idea of a corrupt politician appointing anyone to a U.S. Senate seat. That stand crumbled quickly when race-baiting Democrats led by the likes of Bobby Rush started playing the race card. Then, Burris and the Senate reached an "agreement," because the last thing the Democrat-led body wanted was to be accused of racism so soon after the first black President, who also happens to be a Democrat, was elected.

Nevertheless, the Senate Ethics committee began an "investigation" into Burris' claims. That investigation was probably not intent on finding anything that would damage his reputation, and it did, in fact, go nowhere. 

But now, transcripts of one of the three calls to Blago was released.  What are they going to do now?

Me? I'm grabbing the popcorn.  This ought to be entertaining.

get a lot of popcorn and champagne! Imagine a DEMOCRAT being investigated? ALERT THE MEDIA! (oh, never mind, THEY won't cover this much...UNLESS this is a shill for Sotomayor's hearings which could be QUITE lousy and nonflattering if what I"m hearing's true about her personality...maybe that's all this Burris thing is "throw him under a bus, he OWES us.....anything to keep the media off the hearings!") GRRRR

How do you like HER, T.C.?

From what I've read and seen, I'm not a fan. Some of her comments are quite disturbing.
