Dear LGBT Community, Resistance to Your Community Has Nothing To Do With Being “Phobic”
If it’s not phobia, then why would we resist the LGBT community’s march on the culture? The answer is simple.Read More »
Ace of Spades (H/T, by the way) has kindly given me permission to use the Flaming Blagojevich Skull for this, so I shall:
In a November conversation caught on an FBI wiretap, Roland Burris promised Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s brother that he’d write the governor a campaign check by mid-December, Burris’ lawyer said today.
That was about a month before Rod Blagojevich appointed Burris to the U.S. Senate.
But lawyer Timothy Wright told the Chicago Sun-Times today that his client never sent the check because he believed it wasn’t a good idea given Burris’ interest in the U.S. Senate seat appointment. Wright said Burris’ decision not to send the check had nothing to do with Blagojevich’s Dec. 9 arrest.
Why, no, this planned contribution was not mentioned in any previous narrative about what was going on about Burris’ Senate appointment. It got completely overlooked, in fact. But that’s actually a distraction from the real question, here, which is: what in God’s name was Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid thinking when he seated this guy?
Heck, does Senator Reid think?
OK, that’s two questions. Sue me.
PS: If you’re wondering why Illinois Democrats haven’t picked a successor for Burris yet, it’s almost certainly because they have to wait to see who’s getting indicted in the next six months.
