Snake of the Day

Who else could it be but Roland Burris? The newly appointed senator from Illinois may have opened his mouth too many times trying to explain his financial relationship to former governor  Rod (pay-to-play) Blagojevich. Burris has now admitted that he was approached by Blagojevich's brother and asked to raise $10,000. Burris told the media that he told Blago's brother that he was not willing to pay for the appointment. During his testimony under oath in Blagojevich's impeachment trial,
however, Burris failed to mention any such conversations when asked
about contacts with the governor's office. He later stated that
his testimony might be incomplete and he filed an affidavit correcting it. The Sangamon County, Illinois, state's attorney is considering whether to file perjury charges against Burris.

The new Governor of Illinois, Pat Quinn, has called for Burris' resignation, stating that he has a cloud hanging over his head and should resign for the good of the [disgarced] state. Obama and his mini-me, Rahm Emmanuel, must be terrified that the dim witted Burris will expose their participation in this scandal in an effort to save his senate seat. What is it with these Illinois politicians? Is it a prerequisite for the job to be corrupt and incompetant? Judging by Obama's performance it certainly seems that way. The real catstrophe in the US is not the economy, it is the fact that we have the Illinois posse in charge and they have no clue what they are doing, and no idea how to lead a nation. Obama uses Air Force One like a new toy in an effort to escape the White House and its inherent mantel of leadership.

Burris is just one of the many snakes that Obama brought with him, but for his lies and deceit, Roland Burris is named Snake of the Day.
