BREAKING! Gov. Blago Names Obama Successor

It appears that the impeachment-bound governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich, does have some testicles as he will name President-elect Barack Obama's senate successor at a news conference later today.
His name is Ronald Burris and he once ran for the senate in 1984 and lost to Democrat Paul Simon who went on to defeat Republican incumbent senator Charles Percy.
For some interesting irony, Mr. Burris was the former Illinois Attorney General.
This governor facing impeachment is about to name a former attorney general.
Too good.

I watched the governor's announcement of this appointment on the news and ... well, he made a convincing case for himself. I know! I was certainly surprised that Blowmebitch could say ANYTHING with which I could agree.

I don't agree with Burris AS the appointment, but that's not surprising.
