Durbin's burlesque continues

Speaking from Turkey, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) had this to say about the ongoing Roland Burris controversy:

"It's sickening," Durbin said in an interview. "Short of Roland Burris resigning or resolving this issue — if he can, and I don’t know if he can — I don't know what will stop it. I'm tired of this Blagojevich burlesque that’s been going on for so long. The people of our state should be spared this."

Sheesh. The people of our state could have been spared this. Forgive me for repeating myself, but since the mainstream media isn't doing it's job, I have to yell this out again: After Rod Blagojevich was arrested for allegedly attempting to sell Barack Obama's Senate seat, Durbin called for a special election to decide Obama's replacement. But Durbin, who at first not want to spare the people of Illinois this mess, was more concerned about keeping this seat in Democratic hands. So Durbin the coward flip-flopped. It's sickening.

Burris: Resign now.

And we want a special election!

I enjoy how the press isn't saying with whom Durbin is traveling.
