Leave Roland Burris Alone!

Let the man have his Senate seat and get off his back.

I really don’t know what the problem is with Mr. Burris.  If all calling for him to resign would just shut up, there would not be a problem.  And if — if — he had to walk in by himself last night as some kind of a shun, then all the Senators should be ashamed.  I absolutely hate it when someone cries race or racist, but I am beginning to wonder if that’s what it is.  First they block him from the Senate floor so he can’t be sworn in with the rest of the Senate, and now they want him to resign.

He obviously wants the position, I think he considers it an honor that he maybe has hoped, he was duly and legitimately appointed, and he seems to me to be an honorable man, so just exactly what has he done that he should resign?

And besides that, if Tim Tax Cheat Geithner can be Secretary of the Treasury and IRS, Mr. Burris can surely be a Senator.

“Oh, God” whispered by someone (Chris Matthews) at MSNBC as Jindal walks out (Video)

I heard this! – somebody saying “Oh, God” as Bobby Jindal ]was walking to the podium last night to give the republican response to President Obama’s speech.  I thought it was Chris Matthews, but I’m not sure.  Keith Olbermann was introducing Jindal.  It is for sure that someone said it.  Can’t tell the folks at MSNBC are on the side of Obama and the democrats, can you?  What a surprise.

They keep taking these videos down.
