Play it!

Bobby Rush on Blagojevich's appointment of Roland Burris to the vacant senate seat.

A passionate Rush, appearing besides the former Illinois AG and the indicted governor, said he challenged any pol to try to block Burris who would become the only "black senator.

Rush -- who defeated Obama in a 1990s congressional race -- went on to implore reporters gathered in Chicago not to "hang or lynch" Burris, despite the bizarre circumstances of his appointment.

"This is a good decision," Rush told reporters. "Roland Burris is worthy. He has not, in 20 years of public service, had one iota of taint on his record as a public servant. He is an esteemed member of this state and this communnity."
When all else fails, don’t forget to play the race card.

Sometimes I am just so proud that people like this are part of my states congressional delegation.
