Crowing to every willing media outlet that they would not seat Roland Burris after he was appointed - was bad enough. But adding insult to injury, they had him running here, there and everywhere trying to prove that he was "worthy." And most disguting of all, he was forced to stand in the rain after being turned away, while they held the big swearing in of all the other new and only-white senators. They displayed their Plantation Owner behavior for all the world to see. As former NFL coach, Denny Green said once in a beer commercial clip, "They are who we thought they were."
They were wrong. And worse, they came off as megalomaniacs (which many of them seem to actually be). And the President-select was front-and-center on this from Day One, I don't care how you revisionists try to spin it.
I'll bet you a nickel that their apology to Roland Burris will hardly be as public, or as vociferous as was their refusal to seat him. And the media? Well...
I have more respect for Roland Burris and his legal team's "strategy" of knowing the law and using it slap them upside their damn heads, than I have for any of them. Congratulations Sen. Burris (and please, no Stepin Fetchit behavior once you get in there, m-m-mkay?).
