It's as if Nothing is Wrong

FLASH: The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich will appoint former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to fill the Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. Will Harry Reid agree to seat Mr. Burris? Will Gov. Blagojevich be impeached? Time will tell.

You have to love this situation. Initially, Durbin calls for a special election. Unfortunately, it suddenly dawns on him that one Mark Kirk might be the best bet for a Republican to win the seat in years and suddenly, "nope, that won't work". Now, we have Blago, professing to do the responsible thing, the Dems in the Senate saying they will not seat Burris, who, of course would only help their vote tally, and the citizens of the State of Illinios, left without representation. Oh, and let's not forget the Trib. For, had they not jumped the gun, perhaps we might have caught Blago actually commiting a crime he could go to jail for, as opposed to just talking about it.

God bless Illinois politics and all of the material it provides us to chew on each day.
