I don't know who's got bigger balls, Blago for naming Roland Burris (or anyone) to Obama's vacant Senate seat in spite of being told any pick of his would never be seated, or Burris for accepting. Or maybe Rep. Bobby Rush, who joined them at their La-La-Land presser and basically accused any Senator who would come out against Blago's pick of being a racist. (Reverse racism is probably part of the governor's plan—it wins him a few allies in the black community, who are a big part of the court of popular opinion in Democratworld, and some of whom might be on his future jury!)
Everyone keeps tripping over themselves saying what a great guy Burris is, but a great guy does not accept Blago's appointment when he's under investigation for attempting to sell the seat (he turns it down, like Rep. Danny Davis), especially when said great guy has raised money for Blago in the past...
...and then there is that pesky monument to himself that the blood-thirsty Burris has going in a Chi-Town cemetery.
Burris (R) with (closeted) Chicago Mayor Harold Washington, who died the moment I moved to the city.
I hope it's emblematic of his appointment—DOA.
(But then, even if it's dead, it could rise again a few days later. Don't believe in that nonsense? Neither do I...but unfortch, Pres.-Elect Obama sure does. I want him to get into office and do something pro-gay and/or progressive already so I can stop being pre-annoyed with him and enjoy the fact that we got a liberal into the White House for the first time in...ever?)
