Dateline: Tuesday, January 6th, 2009:
Where do you think you are going?
I would like to go to my Senate seat.
Ahhh, that ain't gonna happen there big guy, we are under strict orders not to let you sit.
So what are you going to do if I try to go in there, physically remove me?
That exchange could actually take place next week when Roland Burris, the man who Blago picked to replace his O ness, actually tries to take that vacant senate seat.
Apparently the dumbocrats are hell bent on not making it happen and they are planning to stop my man by any means necessary. Now I don't like the fact that Burris is allowing himself to be used by Blago. The whole thing just seems a bit desperate to me. Somehow I can't get the idea out of my head that Burris is being used like so many of our Negro polit-trick-sters have been used in the past. The behavior seems houseish (is that a word?) to me.
I mean let's keep it real folks: do you really think that if Bagojevich did not get himself in trouble with the feds he would be sending Mr. Burris to Washington? This is just a desperate ploy on his part to hang on to power by playing the race card. And a part of me is pissed at Burris for even accepting Blago's offer and letting this side show play itself out.
Still, how dumb are the dumbocrats? I mean give me a break. What are they thinking with vowing to block Burris from being seated? It makes no sense. Personally, I think as it stands now, Blago is on solid legal footing. He has not been convicted of a crime and he is still the Governor of Illinois, and under the laws of his state he has the right to make this appointment.
If Harry Reid and those clowns try to block him and my man sues he will win. The Supremes have already set precedent for this when they told congress that they could not exclude Adam Clayton Powell (D,NY) back in the day. (Why is it always the black man that they try to block?)
Burris himself is not tainted by scandal, and his governor has not been convicted of a crime. And he meets all the other requirements spelled out in Article 1 Section 3 & the 17th Amendment: He is over 30, he is an A-merry-can citizen, and he is a resident of Illinois. So now what?
This is also a dumb move politically by my clueless dumbocratic friends. You just know black folks are going to be looking at this and saying that "the man" is coming down on a brotha. Can you imagine the imagery when Burris goes toe to toe with Senate Aids? Cynthia McKinney's little cell phone moment won't have anything on this one.
So Harry, a word of advice from the field: Let the guy sit and enjoy his time as a Senator, and get over it. I know you all didn't like how it went down, but that's too bad. The guy might actually turn out to be a pretty good Senator. Hell he can't be any worse than the rest of you clowns, and you all were elected to go there by a lot more people.
