Fisting Burris













I believe it’s called “strong-arming” but that doesn’t tell you anything about how the US Constitution might win out over Blago’s appointed geezer, Roland Burris. More so, my headline tells you more about how I feel about this mess.

Forbes magazine has the scoop.
In its landmark 1969 ruling in Powell v. McCormack, the Supreme Court held that Article I, Section 5, which makes "[e]ach House...the Judge of the Elections...and Qualifications of its own Members,"…set forth in Article I, Section 2.
Blah, blah blippity bloop. This means that President-elect Obama was upholding the Constitution when he urged the senate to deny any piece of trash from being appointed to his former office. Especially if said trash was installed by helmet-headed enema pump, Gov. Blagojevich. Now look, I’m just as shocked as anyone that a president of the US is respecting our constitution. I need to sit down.

Still, let’s be clear about something, though. As a registered voter in Illinois, and a Democrat, I would have preferred a special election. Our Dems here could have easily introduced legislation that would have allowed citizens to vote for a new senator, instead of letting Blago show his ass. Why didn’t that happen, Santa?

Democrats in IL were noisily shuffling impeachment papers (to sound busy), but mostly they were busy practising their favorite dance moves in anticipation of dancing on Blago’s political grave. The problem is that Blago isn’t dead yet. Also, Dems are worried that a special election might give a Republican candidate a leg up. A GOP smack-down for the future president’s former job? Oh, the humanity!

I can see how Dems would have a psychological problem with that scenario, but they don’t all live here and I do. Anyone in IL will back me up when I say that Dems and Repubs work together in this state. They lunch together, and they share the same greasy friends. Both sides have a stake in fisting IL taxpayers. No politician here has ever been caught appointing their children to jobs, or giving their butt-buddies big contracts because our pols don’t hide anything! No one, not ever! The processes are 100% transparent and up our ass without the benefit of lubrication or dinner afterward. If a Republican were elected over a Democrat, it would not make any difference. It’s that bad. And that is why those bastards owed us a chance to vote.

Believe me when I say I’m going to remember this on Election Day in two years. It will be interesting to see how many of Obama’s former volunteers, like me, effect real change at home. There are two moods I'm going to take with me to my designated voting place: disgusted and pissed off. Please join me.

Roland Burris's career is done out side of Illinois and maybe even inside. Who in 1/10 of the right mind would accept a nomination from Whatsabitch?

I am in Florida but if the Daley machine is running right I should be able to vote in Illinois as well. So I will stand by you up there also.

Sen Mel (the Smell) Martinez (R-FL), has already said he is not running in 2010. I was going to amass as big a campaign against him as I could. Now surprising since campaigns now are a minimum of 2 years, we don't know yet who will be running for that Senate Seat.

We need to keep Sen Bill Nelson (D-FL), if he runs again. He voted against the war, against the bail out. And for the Space Program and pro Health Care. He is a keeper but he is getting old enough to retire and isn't up until 2012 when Palin runs for President.

"helmet-headed enema pump"

Mojo, you have a way with description that delights me.

In the meantime, in MN the only people making money hand over fist(ing) are the legal teams for Norm Coleman and Al Franken.

Not an El Annoy voter, I probably don't have much of a say in any of this except that the Blagoguy besmirches my President-elect Barack Obama (a Muslim from an exotic land) and forces rightwing talking guys to say my P.E. is a Chicago mobster which makes me mad as a hornet! However, as a non-El Annoyer, I would be willing to accept a blood sacrifice from the Blago in restitution for these transgressions. How about Patti? Blago will probably still go to jail and Ferris will probably continue to humiliate himself with court proceedings, yes? But for the rest of us outside of El Annoy, a blood sacrifice would be all we'd need to stop making fun of the Blago hair.

In a previous post, Mojopo compares El Annoy politicians to Loosey Anna. Her rating is that El Annoyers are more corrupt but not as dumb. I have no opinion there. I don't understand why people keep saying my public servants are corrupt anyway. Who are they talking about? And where the hell do YOU put YOUR bribe money if not in your freezer? Is it Vitter? Listen, I dislike Vitter because he is a jackboot fascist cocksuck, sure, but do I care if he pays his prostitutes too much to powder and diaper him? It's his taxpayers' money and if he wants to throw it away on expensive call girls when a truckstop working girl could do the job just as well for less, then have at it, Dave!

Also in a previous post, Mojo asks, Hey anony, how are the levees holding up?
Truth is, Mojo, I moved my tent 50 miles up the road from the damn levees. The ninth ward, along with the house where Fats Domino kept the piano he played on Blueberry Hill is pretty much being bulldozed though. The philosophy is, I think: If you can't get the levees to hold, get rid of the things that'll make us look bad when they don't. I guess that's it. For the time being, Skeletor is in charge. When P.E. Obama is sworn in, he will give the job to someone else. That person may very well get them levees fixed. But the place where most of the music came from is pretty much going. Heckuva job, yes?

PS -- THIS Mojopost is important because it returns us to a sense of our civic duties after all our merry-making of the past two weeks AND makes us think of blood sacrifices. Also, in this Mojopost, we are treated to a rare photo of blago without his colored contacts in. I give this one another solid 10!

I mean Burris, not ferris. Ferris is a different jerkoff, maybe? Chrxst, there are SO many!

You know... I get the weirdest hate mail, pro-Blago. You know, that whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing.

You got nasty mail? Guess what I got in my mail today. Someone wants to know if I'd like to sell my "unused gold" to them. What the hell is UNUSED GOLD?!

Anonymous said...

Besides, I don't see where anybody said "guilty". I see "helmet-headed enema pump", "not dead", "bastards" (which probably includes Blago). Papa said "Whatsabitch", I said "besmirches my P.E." and "shitdick". Who said guilty?

Oh, Mojo, I just luff you!

Mojopo said...

Yes, I get hate mail. The best! I used to feature it weekly. Maybe I should start it up again.

Luff you back! You big poopy.

uhhh... since when did Blagojevich join the cast of Heroes?

Mojopo said...

...as in never. Blago is a cartoon foil, now. Soon to drive school buses in South Park. Swear to God.
