Dump Burris

Far be it from me to jump on a Republican bandwagon, but Roland Burris should never have been allowed to take a seat in the US Senate to begin with. I can't imagine anyone accepting Blagojevich's nomination in the first place. But then again, I've never been desperate for public office. Burris, on the other hand, has tried & failed in runs for governor (twice) and Chicago mayor since 1994. Between Burris' unquenchable thirst for office and Blagojevich's ability to just about anything for money, a bad result was inevitable. Did Burris do anything unethical or illegal to get this seat? I don't know. Did he set himself up for every Tom, Dick & Harry with a magnifying glass to investigate him? Sure did. I'm also betting that Burris' ego is big enough that if he does have some recent dirty linen he thinks it won't be found, or it won't bring him down. We'll see.

Totally agree--Burris is such a weasel.
