  •  I am African-American and I too am EMBARRASSED (5+ / 0-)

    by Burris and Rush totally enacting the 60's with the race card they are playing.  

    There are MANY situations in which African-Americans can be in a grievous position but this is NOT one of them.

    Blago could have picked a blue person but Reid would have still refused to seat him in the U.S. Senate.

    This is about Blago trying to get Illinois African-Americans on his side who may eventually be in the jury pool when he goes to trial.  This has all to do with Blago.  He doesn't give a shit about the people of Illinois.

    •  And this "crying wolf" will have the effect of (0+ / 0-)

      diverting attention to when the real race wolf is prowling. There it is, a real wolf and there will be numerous eyes rolled partly because of this kind of crap.

      Burris struck me as a rather pitiful person in the times I've seen him--and I'd never heard of him before yesterday. He didn't strike me as the sharpest nail in the bin, but many politicians are not. If elected, he'd be another of those. Not now. He wants it too badly and is willing to taint himself to do so. That is exactly what he has done. Go up and hug the filth spattered crook and it comes off on even the purest--self tainting even in innocence.

    •  Please, Drdemocrat, don't be embarrassed. (0+ / 0-)

      By all means, donate to Rush's primary opponent, dish any dirt you have on Rush to Fitz, the Chicago media or the tabloids (as appropriate) and support Reid and Obama in their actions.  But do not feel embarrassed.

      Every American, no matter her color, has plenty of people that share that color of whom to be embarrassed.  That's one achievement of the Bush Administration's diverse Cabinet.  If everybody is stuck cringing in shame, nothing at all worth doing will get done.
