I am embarrassed and ashamed by the games played by our governor. This is just one more reason for the people in Wisconsin and elsewhere to look down on us.

ROLAND BURRIS MAY BE QUALIFIED TO BE A U.S.
SENATOR BUT HE JUST PROVED HE ISN'T QUALIFIED
MENTALLY FOR THE JOB BY ACCEPTING THE JOB FROM
A PERSON WHO HAS BEEN ACCUSED OF TRYING TO SELL
THE JOB TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER!
ANY PERSON WHO ACCEPTS THE JOB FROM THE GOV CAN'T
WIN IN AN ELECTION IN A COUPLE OF YEARS ANYWAY!
ROLAND BURRIS IS TO OLD AND HE JUST PROVED HE HAS
A MENTAL DEFECT BY ACCEPTING THE POSITION!
WHEN THE GOV GOES TO PRISON AND HE IS GOING TO GO,
HE WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE MAN WHO NAMED
A LAME-DUCK SENATOR BEFORE HE PUT ON HIS STRIPE
SUIT!
I UNDERSTAND WHERE BOBBY RUSH IS COMING FROM, BUT
ROLAND BURRIS ISN'T THE ANSWER, HE NEVER WAS!
HE IS JUST A PAWN IN THE GAME, THE SAME LITTLE
ORGANIZATION THAT WAS OUTSIDE JESSE JUNIORS HOUSE
ARE THE SAME GUYS PUSHING FOR BURRIS TO BE THE
SENATOR, THERE IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING ROTTEN IN
DENMARK!
THIS ENTIRE SITUATION STINKS OF CORRUPTION!

Great information, Lynn, on Burris's political history. Sounds like he chose to accept because he's had problems getting elected. Has been in political retirement......why come back now?? A real gamble to appoint someone from the Daley machine, even though it appears that he has a good reputation. I'd be curious to know if Blago had any help selecting him.

OH HELL'S BELLS SHOUTING PHIL BURRIS IS CLEAN AS A WHISTLE.
And 2 years from now, after the Fitz prosecution against Blago reveals all the sort of illegal spying on ALL american citizens--like that crappy FISA renewal sen. Obama voted for--who's to say Burris won't be re-elected.
But is that really necessary.
Look, Phil, what you SHOULD get upset about is FITZ REFUSED TO GO AFTER KARL ROVE FOR TREASON IN THE VAL PLAME CASE.
Educate yourself.

IT'S NOT ABOUT HOW CLEAN HE IS, IT'S ABOUT A MAN
TAKING A JOB FROM A FUTURE CRIMINAL!
WHEN THIS GUY GOES TO WASHINGTON, HE WON'T BE
ALLOWED ANY SEAT ON ANY LEGISLATION, HE WILL BE
LOOKED UPON AS A PERSON WITH LEPRIOSY!
YOU WERE RIGHT WHEN YOU SAID HE WAS CLEAN, WELL
HE AIN'T CLEAN NO MORE, HE JUST DIRTIED HIS HANDS
BY ACCEPTING A LAME-DUCK JOB!
YOU ARE MIXING APPLES WITH ORANGES TALKING ABOUT
KARL ROVE, NOW WHAT OFFICE DID HE HOLD?
HE IS DIRTY TOO, BUT HE ISN'T ABOUT TO TAKE A
SENATE SEAT FROM A GUY WHO WAS TRYING TO SELL THE
JOB!
ROLAND BURRIS WILL BE LUCKY IF HE LIVES TWO MORE
YEARS, HE DOESN'T REALIZE THE STRESS HE IS GOING
TO BE UNDER!
