It’ll take a sorcerer to repair this guy’s image

From CHICAGO SUN-TIMES:

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Rock-star wife/TV personality Sharon Osbourne. Pro wrestler/actor Goldberg. Comic Sinbad.

Toss in a couple of former athletes, Australian TV chef Curtis Stone and Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks, and you have most of the season 3 cast of “The Celebrity Apprentice.”

Why, that’s Fantasia…I mean, fantastic!

More Tsuris From Burris

From The Washington Post:

CHICAGO — Sen. Roland W. Burris (D-Ill.), appointed late last year to replace President Obama in the U.S. Senate, has informed Illinois lawmakers that he did not tell them the complete story about his contacts with close associates of Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) before he got the job.

Burris Tsuris

tsuris: NOUN: trouble; aggravation.

From The Washington Post:

With five days until the start of the 111th Congress, the corruption scandal surrounding Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) has complicated what was already shaping up to be a dramatic start in the Senate.

Senate Democrats are left to deal with the mess of the successions of President-elect Barack Obama, Vice President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., Secretary of State-designate Hillary Rodham Clinton and Interior Secretary-designate Ken Salazar.

But the most high-profile scenario involves what Democrats will do if Roland W. Burris, Blagojevich’s choice, makes good on his pledge to appear Tuesday on Capitol Hill to try to take the oath of office for Obama’s seat.
