Roland Burris . . . caught on tape

How could he buy Rod Blagojevich's favor and consideration for appointment to Barack Obama's seat?  According to Blago's brother Rob, Burris and his friends could "just write checks that'd be fine."

Burris's response?  "Okay, okay, well we, I, I will personally do something, okay.  . . . tell Rod to keep me in mind for that seat, would ya?  (chuckles)"

All this, and more, here in a transcript of an FBI wiretap from November 13, 2008.

You've got to love Chicago politics.

Changing the subject entirely . . . I was wondering, where is Barack Obama from?
