Congrats Roland Burris!

Finally, we find out who the highest bidder on the Senate Seat auction from Seller: Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D), ILLINOIS.

Congrats Mr. Burris, welcome to tainted public service!!

I wonder if C. Kennedy has her checkbook ready...?

Roland's a perfect fit, Lee. He fits Illinois politics well. Voters rejected him for Senate in 1984, Democratic Primary 1994, Mayor of Chicago '95, and Governor in '98 and '02. He did serve as Comptroller and Atty General, but his time there was marred by shady campaign contributions from state run nursing homes and beefing up his state pension with money from his own campaign fund.
Blagovich clearly knows what's best for the voters, more than the voters do.

I'm just stopping by and to wish you and your family a Happy New Year, Lee. All the best to us anarchists in '09.
