Seat This!

As you've probably heard, this man, Roland Burris, was selected by Governor Rod Blagojevich to replace Barack Obama as Senator from the great state of Illinois.  (Why is every state "the great state" by the way?  Seems like we can all admit that North Dakota ain't much.)  While Burris seems like a decent man, the powers that be in the Senate are putting up a fight about him because of the Blagojevich scandal.  As I've read about this today, I can't help but think that not only is Blagojevich a scum-bag for basically trying to sell the senate seat, but also for so cynically choosing this man who nobody had heard of before.  In a time when the country has come so far by electing a black president, it is a damn shame that all the news outlets are talking about how the senate is blocking what would be the only black senator.

As far as I'm concerned Blagojevich can go back in the time warp that his hair is from.

And that's all for the serious portion of the blog today.

Moving along, I have noticed that lately when I get my foot-long turkey sandwich at Subway that they are only putting seven slices of turkey in the sandwich.  Before the recession it was eight.  This is how it starts, folks.  Next thing you know the "sandwich artists" will be out of a job and we'll have to make the sandwiches ourselves.

Hmm, that gives me an good idea for a new job for Blagojevich...
