    I can't imagine how depraved Burris must have been to take the appointment. It boggles my mind. He's a buffoon.  He's either corrupt or an idiot. Unfortunately, neither of those preclude him from being seated as a senator, and the latter doesn't preclude him from serving. And at the end of the day, that's what counts. Which is bad for the specific scenario, sure. It may hurt our 2010 chances. It may make it more difficult for a real candidate to give Burris the boot in the primary, and it's certainly disgusting, but it's also the only legitimate option. We can't let politics interfere with the legal election or appointment of representatives, no matter how terrible one may be.
