Earlier in the day, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Illinois senior senator and Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin said the Senate would accept Burris' credentials.
Nice of Obama to drag the slimy Illinois politicians to Washington with him. Even if Obama does not want them there, they are coming anyway.
What did you expect President elect Obama? Apparently the stench of the Illinois Democratic machine is following him to Washington after all.
The Illinois Democratic machine helped get Obama elected and now the stench will be around for two years for everyone to smell. We still have the Blago impeachment trial and the Blago indictments and then the Blago trial. This stench will be front page news for a while.
In the meantime, the people of Illinois have been robbed of a person that will openly and honestly represent them. Clearly the people of Illinois are secondary to the Democratic machine.
Got to get those Democrats elected at all costs.
