They seated Million Dollar Burris today:
WASHINGTON – Roland Burris took his place as Barack Obama’s successor in the Senate on Thursday, ending a standoff that embarrassed the president-elect and fellow Democrats who initially resisted the appointment by scandal-scarred Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.
More than a week after his colleagues were sworn in, Burris was seated without objection or a roll call vote, even though Majority Leader Harry Reid had said senators would have their voices heard on whether to accept his appointment.
Senate Democrats wanted to move beyond the distracting controversy and its racial undertones.
Bolding mine: you know that a Democrat’s messed up when the AP refuses to carry his water for him. I would like to thank the Democrats for this gloriously stupid meltdown of theirs, by the way: it was the perfect background of cowardice, corruption, and abject incompetence with which to highlight the incoming administration. We couldn’t have done this better ourselves, and I am not just saying that. I really can’t think of anything that we would have done any differently.
This was art.
PS: Gird your loins.
