ill, annoyed

Burress. Burris. They sound the same. They act the same. Plaxico shoots himself in the leg. Roland shoots himself in the foot.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that someone connected to corrupt former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich has turned out to be a liar, but enough already!

Roland Burris - who first said he had no contact with Blagojevich's people about Illinois' vacant Senate seat but later admitted that, prior to being appointed, he discussed raising money for the pay-to-play governor - needs to resign from the Senate immediately, and his seat needs to be filled with the winner of a special election.

It's the only chance - remote though it may be - that the good people of Illinois will have honest representation in Washington.
