Roland Burris is Unimpressive

| | Comments (0)

"Unimpressive" is a polite word. From NewsHour:

ROLAND BURRIS: Take for instance, Ray, if the bill that he has signed as the governor. He's exercising his constitutional responsibilities and authority. One other example is with my good friend, President Clinton, was also impeached. He was still carrying on the duties and responsibility of the presidency. ...

RAY SUAREZ: But, again, Mr. Burris, the very complaint made against Gov. Blagojevich by the U.S. attorney for northern Illinois involves the appointment for this seat. Does that change the legal landscape at all for you?

ROLAND BURRIS: Absolutely not. It has nothing to do with it. The governor -- let me ask you this. Is he still the governor?

RAY SUAREZ: Well, I guess -- not that it's a legal opinion for me, but he appears to be very much the governor at this point, yes.

Right. The fact that there's a criminal complaint against the governor for trying to sell the appointment he gave to me has nothing to do with the appointment he gave to me. After all, he is the governor! Consider this: Chewbacca is a Wookiee from the planet Kashyyyk. But Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it; that does not make sense!
