Apparently the news cycle here in Illinois was too slow for the taste of Sir Rod. He decided to name Roland Burris, the former comptroller of the state to the seat vacated by PEBO. This is fun for several reasons… It is now clear that what we have here in Illinois is a designated “African-American” Senate seat, and I wonder how Illinoisians are going to view that. Also, Harry Reid and his 49 Democratic Party colleagues made it quite clear, they would not be happy with a Blago selection. Whatever will PEBO do? Looks like a stifling media bubble is not his greatest concern.
