Dept. of earth-shattering surprises

Pardon me as I pick myself up from the floor. Who could have seen this coming?
A month to the day after he was sworn into office by Dick Cheney, Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.) is under an ethical cloud that threatens to upend his turn on the national stage.

In an affidavit made public on Saturday, Burris for the first time said that he had been solicited for campaign contributions by the brother of Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who named him to the seat. The governor, who’d already been arrested on charges he’d sought to sell the appointment before selecting Burris, was subsequently removed from office by the state Legislature.
I am shocked. SHOCKED!

Update: Oy.
