Political correctness in overdrive

As a rule, I try to keep the focus of the blog local, but this is just too good:

After yesterday's scene outside the Senate building — in which a kindly, old, and, as Bobby Rush unsubtly pointed out, African-American man was barred from the Senate building in the rain — Senate Democrats have given in. The AP is reporting that Burris will soon be allowed to take office as the junior Senator from Illinois. Even if it doesn't end up helping his legal case, Blagojevich must be proud today that even as the least popular pol in America, with no political capital whatsoever, he has made the Senate blink.

Somewhere, Rod Blagojevich Is Laughing Maniacally

The Senate had no constitutional or other right to exclude Burris. The rule of law rightfully prevailed.
If the Illinois legislature didn't want this, they should have held a special election instead of sitting around and doing nothing.

Harry Reid - a true leader.
Of what I have no idea.
The absolute worse Senate Majority Leader I've ever seen in 50+ years.
Ans I suspect 75% of the American people have no idea who he is and why I mentioned him.

I respectfully disagree. The Illinois Secretary of State did not certify the appointment, which is required by Illinois state law, so Burris did not have valid credentials. Had it been certified by the IL Sec of State and the Senate refused, that would have been illegal.

Maybe you forgot about Trent Lott the white supremicist, or Bill Frist the religious nut guy who talked openly in his book about picking homeless cats off the street to do medical procedures in his basement during med school without real equipment or any morals.What a sick guy.He had no qualms about talking about it in news papers.Look it up.
