Brit Hume talks taint on Fox News Sunday.
Firstly, poor, poor Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. He deserves the same pity as an uncharged Guantanamo prisoner. Blago is innocent until proven guilty, and everyone should stop treating him like a would-be senate-seat-selling slime ball with the mouth of a stevedore:
These fuckers are telling me I have to suck it up and give motherfucking Obama his Senator pick. Fuck him. For nothing? Fuck him. I’ll put some douchebag in the Senate before I just fucking give that guy a fucking Senate seat and I don’t get anything. ” —Governor Blagojevich quoted in a Department of Justice Document
It’s easy to see how Blagojevich is just misunderstood, right.
Dems should be concerned about the appointment made by Blagojevich. Roland Burris doesn’t really give the impression he’s going to be able to retain the seat…after all, he’s had Blago’s taint all over him.
If they go ahead with the Burris appointment, they may just be trading one circus for another.
