Dumb and Dumber

Blago actually appointed someone....and the poor fool ACCEPTED!

Ignoring threats from the U.S. Senate Democratic leadership to block his pick, Gov. Blagojevich this afternoon said he's appointing Roland Burris to President-elect Barack Obama's vacant U.S. Senate seat

Vote for "dumber of the two" at some other blog...

The worse part is, based on reports I've heard tonight, there's not a lot anyone can do about it. Sounds like the threat of Reid not seating him is an idle one based on a previous Supreme Court case. It's hard to be sorry for the folks of Illinois as they've allowed this nonsense to continue for far to long.

It's dumb only if you mean dumb like a fox. Blago pulled a totally "in your face" power move by playing the ultimate race card. How can anyone be opposed to his selection of a black man to replace the only black man in the U.S. Senate?? Read John Kass; he calls it "a brazen move, and a smart one, and though the race card was ugly, there was no passion in it. There was no lunacy involved."

By the way, if you don't already read John Kass every day, you should. Husband and I are amazed that he's still alive after years of reporting on the mob and all the crooked pols in Illinois. Great writer; great stuff.
