The conservative CNS News site gets Michael Steele (about whom you can find more here) on record, telling Democrats to seatRoland Burris as the junior senator from Illinois.
Now, the Democrats have got their hands full, because they can seat him or not seat him, and the reality of it for them is there’s no legal reason not to seat him. He’s qualified. He’s dually presented by the sitting governor.
Steele’s take was echoed, with … somewhat less tact, by Rush Limbaugh. The conservative radio host and noted civil rights leader introduced his Burris segment yesterday by playing the theme songfrom* The Jeffersons*.
(Well we’re movin’ on up!)
I don’t think so.
(to the east side!)
I don’t think so.
(To a deluxe apartment in the sky!)
Not today.
(We’ll we’re movin’ on up!)
Just one problem. Couldn’t get in the front door.
Limbaugh also gloated about how he’d been right all along about the “magic negro” argument.
They accuse [Illinois Gov. Rod] Blagojevich of playing the race card. It’s the Democrats who run the Senate who are refusing to seat somebody who has been legitimately appointed by a sitting governor. [President-elect Barack] Obama’s appointed a bunch of white people, and now Burris gets rejected. Even Obama came out against Burris. The inauthentic came out against the authentic, according to the way you liberals look at things here.
Limbaugh also guffawed at the fact that the Illinois secretary of state who is blocking Burris’ appointment is named Jesse White: “You can’t make this up!”
Jesse White is black.
