I just saw Roland Burris on CNN and Fox News making a fool out of himself as he defended Rod Blagojevich's selection of him to replace Barack Obama in the US Senate.
Now he's sealing the deal: Burris asked the Illinois Supreme Court to force his appointment to the US Senate. Not to being an attorney, I can only guess his rationale by pursuing the matter in a state court. Could it be that the Illinois Secretary of State, Democrat Jesse White, refused to accept the paperwork regarding Burris' selection from disgraced Governor Rod Blagojevich?
This story gets weirder and weirder...
