Good day my friends and welcome to the second post of Simple Man politics in the New Year. I don’t plan to write a monster blog like Monday’s so you won’t have to worry about falling asleep while reading this one. I just want to touch quickly on the Senate seat issue with regard to Roland Burris the gentleman appointed by Rod Blagojevich to fill the Obama seat, and the WEENIE Al Franken / Coleman situation in Minnesota.

First off let’s discuss this whole Roland Burris thing in Illinois. Governor Blagojevich appointed Roland Burris to fill Obama’s vacant senate seat, this is his responsibility. While Blago himself may be mired in a criminal investigation not only has he not even been indicted, but he is still the Governor of the state of Illinois.

However it appears that the Secretary of State for Illinois has not signed the documents required from his office to certify Blago’s appointment. Apparently he is supposed to do this after the Governor makes the appointment, and does not have the right to withhold his signature, but decided not to because he didn’t think it the right thing to do. However, he has forgotten that his authority does not supersede the authority of the sitting Governor.

The bad thing is is that Burris is actually qualified to take the seat having served in public office for many years, including as the Illinois Attorney General. Burris was also not named as one of the people being discussed as a possible purchaser of the seat, or as an appointee that would be acceptable to the Obama camp. However when he reported to the capitol to sworn in as the junior Senator from the state of Illinois They refused to swear him in and seat him. Even Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein of California said that Burris should have been sworn and seated.

On the other hand every democratic senator is more than willing to seat that political moron Al Franken, who by the way has no experience in the political arena what so ever. It doesn’t matter that there are still 600 absentee ballots in question in the state of Minnesota, or that the election board decided to go with election night count data rather than with recount data because it favors Franken.

Then there is also the fact that the incumbent Norm Coleman has per state law made his court filings too challenge the board’s decision and to have the absentee ballots counted. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says that Norm Coleman will never be seated. If the state of Minnesota decides he has won and certifies him, then Dingy Harry has no right not to seat him. I thought every voter has a right to vote and be counted so why challenge these 600 if that is true.

I guess the Dems are just doing what they always do, throw the principled man under the bus and support the far left lunatic because that is who runs that party now. I just can’t figure out the two major political party’s in this country, which is why I’m glad to say I have no party affiliations with any of these idiots.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I will be back again soon, CIAO4NOW!!!!!


I think they should seat Roland Burris, and toss that idiot Franken back into the gutter where he came from.
