I wish they'd seat Roland Burris and get it over with.

Yes, Blago seems like he might have a crooked side. But I do believe in the rule of law. If he hasn't been convicted of anything, and there's no evidence that Burris did anything wrong, then whatever the rule is in Illinois for appointing senators ought to be followed.

To me this is just common sense and it's difficult to believe they're dragging it out with these phony reasons like his paper is missing a signature.

Maybe he's not the best guy for the job -- I have no idea. But if we have a law that senators are appointed in that way, follow it. If you don't like the law, change it through normal means.
