DEMOCRATS, MEET PETARD:

The Politico Whiteboard

Roland Burris, the choice of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich to fill President-elect Barack Obama’s Senate seat, defends the injection of race into the debate over who should represent Illinois. “It is a fact there are no African-Americans in the United States Senate," Burris said Wednesday on NBC's "Today," reiterating a statement first made Tuesday by U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill). "Is it racism that is taking place? That's a question that someone may raise."

If you were writing the Obama Presidency as a satire you wouldn't change a word so far.
