More crap from Roland Burris—who's already shamelessly played the race card (a wonderful way to make equality a priority in the hearts and minds of the nation, and a ploy he has embraced throughout his career according to Time)—on why he feels he is now, no matter what, the junior senator from Illinois:
"Friends, we're going to have to have some powerful prayer...They can't deny what the Lord has ordained."
Jesus Fucking Christ! I thought the schism in the Republican ranks between the neocons and the Christocons was huge, just wait until the Christocons realize they can use religion as a wedge issue to steal away a large chunk of the Democratic base, even if their own side is infamous for "Barack the Magic Negro."
There is no place for religious babble in American politics. I think we need to move on from a mere separation of church and state and formally file for divorce.
And good luck to Harry Reid in his effort to not seat Burris when he physically shows up. What a great image for the new Democrats. Reid is such a tool.
