My attitude about the Roland Burris Senate nomination is pretty simple.
If he didn’t have the political sense to realize that any Blagojevich nomination would be tainted by scandal, he’s way too damn stupid to be a Senator. Granted, we have some pretty idiotic legislators, but really…
Is it that difficult to understand the cloud that will accompany him into office? Does he not realize that if he’d publicly turned down the offer from Blagojevich, he probably would have received it anyway, later, without the baggage? Or won a special election in a landslide for standing up for honor and integrity?
