Roland Burris, Barack Obama, Chicago, etc.

Update on the Senator, Roland Burris (Democrat), who was appointed by former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

I am extra frustrated by how this drama is playing out. I was completely fooled by the previous claims that Roland Burris had not been in any talks with Blagojevich about fundraising and the appointment. I guess some of it was that I did not expect either of them to be so foolish to lie so boldly under the spotlight of a federal investigation. Oh, well, snarky politicians have no shame, and will sometimes try anything…

So, the article below is blunt and nasty about everything going down. It describes the arrogance of the Chicago political machine, and notes the pickle that President Obama is in.  I thought I would share the article, to make up for my previous mishap of trust in the Blagojevich/Burris appointment. -KW:
