A word of political advice to Senate Democrats: Do not seat Burris. I know that 2-years of Congressional majority has proven you folks to be utterly inept. I know that there are currently no Black people in the Senate. By seating this man you will only be confirming the ineffectiveness of the political management skills that have been showcased since you came into the majority. Of course Republicans want you to seat a Senator appointed by a Democratic Governor who is under corruption charges, from a state with a long history of political corruption, that happens to be the home-state of the incoming Democratic President.
I'm entirely happy if these are in fact the dudes that robbed Soulja Boy. Soulja Boy is an idiot who publicly makes statements like this:
"Oh wait! Hold up! Shout out to the slave masters! Without them we'd still be in Africa. We wouldn't be here to get this ice and tattoos."
