Blagojevich and Operation “Black Shield”

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008 10:04 pm by Neal

Folks, it’s going to be a long four (or, God help us eight) years because this kind of affirmative-action/race-based, politically-correct BULLSHIT is going to get awfully tiring. If you thought a black President was magically going to “heal” the “racial divide” then you are delusional and perhaps psychotic. We’ve forgotten just how damned crazy Democrats are, but as BTO said, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

Blagojevich Names Former Illinois AG to Replace Obama in Senate:

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich faced the scornful objections of lawmakers Tuesday after he named a Senate replacement for Barack Obama, but Blagojevich has the support of at least one congressman.

U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush forcefully backed Blagojevich’s decision on the basis of race, warning the public not to “lynch” Blagojevich’s Senate pick, who is black.

Rush, an Illinois Democrat who also is black, for weeks had urged Blagojevich to name a black successor for Obama, who had been the only black official in the Senate before resigning his post to assume the presidency.

And on Tuesday, Rush joined Blagojevich’s press conference to defend the selection of former state Attorney General Roland Burris for the job and to remind lawmakers that Burris would fill the racial void Obama left. Rush dared Senate leaders to try blocking Burris, after they issued a statement saying they would do just that.

“This is a matter of national importance,” Rush said. “There are no African-Americans in the Senate, and I don’t think that anyone, any U.S. senator who’s sitting in the Senate right now wants to go on record to deny one African-American for being seated in the U.S. Senate. … And so I intend to take that argument to the Congressional Black Caucus.”

The fact that Obama opposes Burris does nothing to change the fact that we’ve entered a new period of racial grievance and entitlement.
