In the “up your nose with a rubber hose” move of the day. Rod Blagojevich is naming himself a Senator by the name of Roland Burris, a former Illinois Attorney General. After serving stints in the state as a state Comptroller prior to the AG’s position, Burris has done his thing on the political consulting tip with his firm, Burris & Lebeb Consulting, LLC.
What is the next move for the people of my home state? Will they fight this appointment or what? Is Gov. Rod offering him up as a trojan horse knowing he won’t get to hold the seat? And did they have to meet in a park somewhere to agree on what the payoff would be?
That’s what I really want to know!
