As I have noted and updated, Willie Brown, legendary California Democrat, said that Fitzpatrick's case against Governor Blagojevich was weak because the Chicago Tribune forced the indictment before there was anything of substance to prosecute.
Now another notable California Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has upped the ante by stating that Blagojevich's choice, Burris, should be seated. Since Senator Feinstein chairs the Senate Rules Committee, which Democrats thought would stall Blagojevich until he could be impeached and removed, I think I hear the sound of a done deal here.
Remember Bill Clinton making appointments as he was being impeached?
Senator Roland Burris, take your seat!
Isn't it obvious that with no deal done, Blagojevich skates free?
To embarrass Democrats another day!
