The President of the Senate threw down a gauntlet by saying the Senate would never seat anyone Blago appointed.

Brilliant move by Blago. Despite being one of the denser persons on this planet, Burris is black, non-controversial, and generally well-regarded.

Let's see the Senate vote down a black man. As quoted in ANIMAL HOUSE by Flounder "Oh Boy, this is gonna be great".

Hopefully, the Republicans put up someone credible and not some hack from their side either.

So the line is drawn in the sand...

Blago appoints Roland Burris to the US Senate!

Interesting how, in the few questions that the media were able to ask Burris, there appeared to be at least TWO reasons to question and/or reject this appointment:

1) Burris has donated funds to Blago's campaign; "Only $14K"!

2) Burris has done legal work for his son's consulting business that HAS A CONSULTING CONTRACT with the State of Illinois;

In regular parts of the country, these would be considered highly suspect, PAY TO PLAY POLITICS!
In Illinois it is called NORMAL!

Then, Bobby Rush takes over the press conference and promptly DARES the US Senate not to appoint the ONLY BLACK senator.

So, if I understand Congressman Rush correctly, it's not enough that America has proven its willingness to accept an African American as President; We must also subsequently accept another African American politition being shoved down our throat, under the most questionable of circumstances, whom the voters of Illinois have REJECTED ON THREE SEPARATE OCCASIONS to be their own
Governor, and apointed by a Governor currently UNDER FEDERAL INDICTMENT!!!

ONLY IN AMERICA... WHAT A COUNTRY!!!

Off Topic:

Cicero Commander Wesly Scott, the highest-ranking African-American police officer in the western suburb’s history, took a retirement offer from the town of Cicero instead of fighting the upcoming termination hearing. Chicago police pulled Scott over Jan. 27 for failing to stop at a stop sign. Police say he had a burned marijuana cigarette in the car and 4.6 grams of the drug in a bag on top of his console. He was charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession, but the charge was dropped on May 7 after he completed a drug school diversion program. Town President Larry Dominick, a former Cicero police officer, said in a prepared statement. "I promoted Wesley Scott to police commander. I have known Wesley Scott for more than 20years and have long considered him a good friend. I still believe Wesley Scott is a good and decent man." "A zero-tolerance drug policy is especially important with respect to our public safety personnel and those persons charged with combating gangs and drugs in Cicero," he said. "As painful as it is for me to take this action against Wesley, my job as town president requires that I put the interests of the town and its residents ahead of my personal friendships." Dominick said some may consider Scott's offense a minor infraction, but the incident was too serious to ignore. He said it undermined Scott's ability to serve in a law enforcement capacity. "Some may see Wesley's mistake as a relatively minor one," he said. "However, as a police officer for 20 years in Cicero, I saw ( and I know Wesley has similarly seen during his tenure of service ) the destruction wrought by the drug trade-and the gang activity financed by the drug trade. To whom much is given, much is expected."

"I appalled (sic) the governor for his decision, and I will ask you to not hang or lynch the appointee as you try to castigate the appointer. Separate, if you will, the appointee from the appointer"

I think Blago should step down. But however unfortunate it is that he is still the governor, he still retains the right to appoint a senator as governor. All the statements that have been made by the Secretary of State and U.S. Senate mean nothing and there will be substantial egg on their faces in the end.

The Secretary of State must affirm the appointment as the governor retains the right to appoint until stripped of his power. He will not be impeached in time for this to happen and it will go to the courts. The Supreme Court of Illinois will look at the State Constitution and laws and find that the Secretary of State of Illinois must affirm the decision.

Then the appointee will arrive at the U.S. Capitol and they will try to prevent him from being seated. The US Supreme Court will step in and, per the U.S. Constitution, find that they do not have the power to choose who represents the "sovereign" state power of Illinois to choose its Senator. There is precedent for this scenario in the 70's when the House of Representatives attempted to block a State Representative from being seated who had been chosen and was, at the time, facing some sort of charges and allegations. In the end, the US Supreme Court told the "blockers" to pound sand and that they must seat the representative.

Like it or not, barring some extensive and unprecedented legal moves which may not even be viable, say hello to Senator Burris. He will remain our Senator for the remainder of the term.

We don't need a contract, you can make extra money by staying late at work and swiping out when you leave and it doesn't matter if the W/C doesn't want to approve your overtime slip. Now that the City is requiring that you swipe out there is a record of all the time you leave. If the city doesn't pay you the overtime you feel you deserve file a lawsuit and all those records are discoverable...this is going to cost them big bucks I hope.

I am in patrol and I work 8 for 8 anyway but I think its another slap in the face by the City treating us like little kids. The goal of my day is collecting a salary from the City and doing the least amount of work possible.

It is a FACT that the City of Chicago, County of Cook and entire STATE of Illinois is regarded as the epicenter of Political corruption in this Country. Ask any FBI agent with more than 5 years on, they will tell you. This City is considered a complete cesspool by the Feds, worse than New York and even, possibly surpassing New Orleans.

Yet another naked attempt by Blago to taint the jury pool in N. Illinois. He's just aping Ryan in his attempt to influence ONE potential black juror.

Rest of USA take note.....Every action by white Illinois Democrats is calculated to influence black people in the voting booth and/or jury pool.

It may actually work for Blago. He's spent every Sunday for the last 6 years in black churches distributing booty to the esteemed clergy.

I love how Blago thinks this strategy will work.

He can give the black community everything they want. He can give them money, grants, appointments, jobs, and none of it will matter. In the end, no black juror will ever come to his defense.

Why?

He's white.

>>>Oh Brother, isn't this the guy who was recorder calling white people Crackers or something similar in the late 90's?>>>

I don't think so, Burris is a gentleman and I have spoken to him a few times. I think that was Bobby Rush who was confusing people of European ethnicity with Nabisco saltines.

You guys are so f*cking funny.

Rush doesn't look too well lately, karma is a comin rep Bobby
-aka former Black Panther gang member and police hater - turned you kiss my ass Sir Daley and I will kiss yours- Rush.

Blago is absolutely brilliant in this appointment. He completely put the "Machine" in checkmate.

I am starting to admire Blago's strategic tactical mindset. I hope he stays in office, a divided "Machine" is the best thing we can hope for in Chicago.

Yeah, Dude! But it's not Blago;
It's his legal team, Ed Genson & Sam Adam Jr... It's why guys like them are always working!

Illinois is only standing on one leg right now in the senate, and we are still paying for two.

If Burris wants to add legitimacy to getting the seat he should stay away from assholes like Bobby Rush.

Then he should offer to go before both houses of the Illinois legislature to confirm him, yea or nay. Let them ask their questions, and vote. It would also set a precedent for filling future vacancies.

Consider this...lets pretend, kids.

Pretend Burris is clean and untainted, and maybe even the best guy for the job. (I said it was pretend)

His acceptance ruins him! By grabbing for the ring, Burris has done a few things.

Its a Blogo move to appear like its business as usual and he's legit. Burris is being used.

He accepted something he is on record as saying should never have been offered.

He is now pulling out the innocent until proven guilty card, after calling for Blogo's resignation.

While he was pulling out the that card, the race card flopped out, in a well orchestrated (well planned, perhaps?) move by Bobby Rush. Nice use of the word "lynch" Bobbie.

Burris won't comment on his past contributions. Not even the classic Obama dodge. Here, I'll write it: "The Blogo on those tapes is not the Blogo I knew..."

Zero. Crickets chirping in the background.

Will Burris sit up in bed at 2 AM and go "WTF was I thinking?" He should.

This is either a ruin for a decent man or proof that you may turn an enemy into an ally with a sweet enough deal. Either way another pathetic chapter in this mess.

Or, maybe, just maybe, he's not a pussy like yourself, ready to either flee, or bend over, rather than fight.

I believe, if I recall this correctly, that England had a civil war start over devisive shenanigans like this. I say disolve the legislature and have King Blago rule. We could arrest all those who dodn't pledge loyalty and plunder the treasury. Then invade the neigboring weakling states of Indiana and Iowa. Our Loyalists would then go on to controlling Lake Michigan and make Wisconsin and Michigan pay through the nose to our Great King or his Navy will shell their cities...who's laughing at the Kingdom of Illinois now? Then we keep marching East, bestowing land on the most loyal Lords of our realm and taxing the conquered into paupers...oh man, I think I better call EAP!
