Q: Dear Mr. Man,
What is going on with Roland Burris (D), the junior senator from Illinois?
A: As most people are aware, Roland Burris is the U.S. Senator from Illinois appointed to replace Barack Obama by the embattled former governor, Rod Blagojevich. He was initially denied entry to the most exclusive club on earth, the U.S. Senate. After much embarrassment, the Senate leaders realized that they did not have a leg to stand on to deny Burris a seat and he was sworn in nine days later. Now he admits that he tried to raise money for Blago even though he was in contention for the vacant senate seat.
In case you were vacationing on Mars or just out of the loop, you can get full details of the story by doing a Google search on”Rod Blagojevich” or “Roland Burris”.
Now, Mr. Man has one question for Mr. Burris…
HAVE YOU LOST YOUR DAMN MIND!?!?!?
Senator Sellout, were you not aware of why Blago was in trouble? What news channel were you watching? In case you didn’t know, HE WAS REMOVED FROM OFFICE FOR ATTEMPTING TO SELL A SENATE SEAT!!!
The one you now occupy…
So now that you are a U.S. Senator, you would embarrass your state even further by coming forward and saying that you were asked to raise money for the governor, you tried, and was unsuccessful. And you wonder why people want to resign. Don’t you think that you should have disclosed this BEFORE you took office?
Oh, yeah. You didn’t disclose this because nobody asked you. Did anyone really have to ask you?
When will politicians begin to put this country first instead of themselves? How much longer must the American people be embarrassed before the world by the very people who are supposed to be serving US?
Roland Burris is a great example when the power to choose our representation is not in the hands of the American people (in this case, the citizens of the state of Illinois). Blago created this appointment out of spite and Burris let his selfish ambition get ahead of what is best for the good people of Illinois.
Senator Sellout, How much did the seat really cost?
