Senate should seat Burris and move on
After long consideration, I’ve reluctantly concluded that the U.S. Senate should bow to certain legal and political realities and give Roland Burris the seat to which Rod Blagojevich has appointed him.
Yeah, Blago’s a crook, but he’s still the governor of Illinois and still has the authority to make the Senate appointment.
Yeah, Burris is an idiot for accepting the appointment under the circumstances, but idiocy has never been a disqualification for the Senate.
Attorney Miles Mogulescu makes what I consider a GOOD CASE for the Senate ending this ridiculous sideshow by seating Burris and getting on with the people’s business.
