Democrat Leaders Promise That Burris Will Be Met With Armed Guards If He Tries To Take His Seat

Oh the wonderfully entertaining exhibition of unrestrained Democrat hubris. Again the left is falling into the same old trap that has doomed them in the past.....overplaying their hand.
The Blagojevich scandal just keeps getting better and better. It’s not just about Blago, Obama and the Chicago political machine any more. By the way Democrats in general are handling this mess, it’s shining a light about liberal attitudes toward the law in general.

Should Roland Burris show up for duty in the Senate on Tuesday, armed police officers stand ready to bar him from the floor.

This cinematic showdown is among an elaborate set of contingencies that Democratic leaders are planning if, as expected, the former Illinois attorney general appointed by Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich shows up with newly elected senators to press his claim that he is the legitimate replacement for President-elect Barack Obama.

Democratic leaders hope to avert such a standoff. And Burris, in an interview Wednesday, said he hoped to claim the Senate seat without added drama. “We’re not going to create a scene in Washington,” Burris said. “We hope it’s negotiated out prior to my going to Washington.”
