Twas the Night Before Christmas, Roland Burris Style

I like living in Illinois for several reasons, but Roland Burris is not one of them.  It is appalling that he was the best replacement that the democratic party had to fill the vacant seat once held by President Obama.

He decided to use some time in the Senate to pen his own version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”  Good thing he’ll be up for election soon.

Merry Christmas!

 

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Blago and Burris – BFF


Looks like Blago and Burris are BFF’s afterall.

A news story has surfaced linking the new Illinois Senator appointed to Obama’s seat and former Governor Blago. It seems that Blago’s brother asked Burris for $10,000 in campaign contributions right before he was appointed to the vacant seat. Must have just “slipped” his mind during his confirmation hearings.

If this were someone from the “other side of the aisle”, it would have been front page news. As it is, it’s an item that comes out over a weekend. How convenient.

Of course, that’s just my opinion
