Brodner’s Cartoon du Jour: Burris Himself Alive

Roland Burris is a fellow, we now know, who leaves nothing to chance. He has actually supervised the creation of his own monument, extolling the legend that he, at this moment, is still busy creating. Today he was asked why he didn’t mention, during the impeachment hearings for Blagojevich, that he had discussed money with the governor’s brother in the negotiations over getting the Senate seat. He replied, “It is not upon a person to go out of his way on anything. It is the person who has to ask the questions.”

Hope he likes it where he’s going.
