    I don't.  The Dems can grandstand and try to look tough, but they'll probably even buckle on this in the end.  Get a real issue.

      I care. I don't want Blago any where near the next senator.  I want every legal avenue taken to block the nomination.  Yes, it's been mishandled, but the fact that Blago sees this as a joke and game and found a willing teammate in Burris, offends me.  May be he'll win, but I really want him stopped.  

      Bush = lame turducken

        I don't see how refusing Burris does anything to stop or even impact Blago. Either way it goes, with Burris' seating, Blago comes up smelling as bad or as good as he does already. It won't be his fault if Burris is not seated, and it won't help him a bit if Burris is seated. Blago may be a jerk, but he knows how to play hype.
