"I can't make things worse you say? Watch this."-Rod Blahblahblahblah
The best way to start the year off is with some good old 'cism, and its even better when its gubment 'cism.
With Illinois Gov. (for now) Rod Blagojevich in enough trouble for putting Illinois' Senate seat up for sale, I guess he figured he might as well kick it up a notch and appoint a Senator despite Senate Democrats pleading with him not to.
Appointing any old senator wasn't enough for Blagojevich though, he had to appoint a black man, Ron Burris.
Senate Democrats had already planned on not accepting anybody Blagojevich appointed, but the racial dynamic added on (Burris will be the only black Senator.) makes it an even stickier situation.
You hear that? That's the sound of Jesse Jackson fainting from the possiblities of all the grandstanding he'll get to do on this issue.
I wouldn't be surprised if Blagojevich just went all out and snorted coke in the courtroom as they send him off to jail, he clearly doesn't care about anything at this point.
Oh yeah, Happy New Year.
