Ok, I’m officially bored with the Blagojevich/Burris story. DiFi said and did the right thing, seeing as how she was running the Rules Committee till her recent switch to chair the Intelligence Committee. Obama isn’t part of the Legislative body, since he started over to the Executive branch and gave up his Senate Seat. So, The One can have one opinion, or the opposite, but he doesn’t get to decide. Reid stuck his neck out too early, and White is slipping and sliding. I don’t care. Another one who may have a legitimate gripe should have made a bigger stink earlier. Now, it just looks badly planned and icky.
Let him in and let’s get on with it.
Even the timing on that looks suspicious, because of Currie’s comments:
But he did not testify before the House impeachment committee and has not offered an explanation for the federal charges.
“His silence in this great matter is deafening,” said House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie, a Chicago Democrat.
Well, duh! If he is under federal investigation, he’s not going to go spilling his guts in the Illinois Senate. Whether the charges are true or not, that would be foolish. Does anyone think ALL who are pointing fingers and yelling “J’accuse!” are blameless and not using this event to get something? Just darn tiring how Democrats are chewing on each other. You got to ask yourself what’s the purpose and which rats will win.
And much more interested in whether women will get some rights back today.
