Sojourner's Place

told you so! burris is a senator!  

Posted by SjP in

If you recall, I told you all here that Roland Burris would be the next senator from Illinois replacing Barack Obama.

In a move that can only be described as akin to the throwing of the shoe, Rod Blagojevich, the embattled Governor, has just told Illinoisans, the feds, and Harry Reid to "talk to the hand" minus 3 fingers and a thumb. Even Michael Corleone would have to "respect what he's done". Blago's naming of Roland Burris to fill Obama's vacated Senate Seat is evidence of Illinois politics at its best - or worst - depending on your frame of reference.

Like I said, smooth move Blago...smooth move! Congratulations Senator! Now make us PROUD!

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

4 sojourners hollin' back

I'm not sure if this is a victory or a defeat...
Part of me is happy but part of me thinks that Burris is in for very, very hard times ahead.

You did tell us!

Now that it is done ... I'm counting on Sen. Burris to work harder than the other 99 senators to create his own legacy that outstrips his Blagojevich roots...

I am so glad that he has made it!
Hopefully he can get out of the shadow of that "corrupt official"

@ Regina, I believe Roland is up for the challenge. He's just got to stay on track and not rest on the laurals that got him to the Senate.

@ Villager, Me too! If he doesn't this was all for naught.

@ Iriegal, He'll have to rise above the Blago shadow cause it'll will follow him forever.
