He Shall Overcome

Might the pointless, self-destructive attempt by Democrats to keep the black man from taking his rightful seat in the U.S. Senate be ending soon?
Democratic leaders have backed down in the Roland Burris showdown, saying his seating hinges on action in the courts, the Illinois legislature and a final vote of United States senators. There’s an increasingly strong chance that Burris will prevail on all these fronts and he’ll become a U.S. senator, ending an embarrassing chapter in Democratic politics.
Democrats appear to have let power go to their heads already.
After a 45 minute meeting with Burris Wednesday morning, Majority Leader Harry Reid and Majority Whip Dick Durbin emerged without an immediate deal to seat Burris, yet seem perilously close to saying Burris will prevail. “This was a positive meeting and it moves us forward,” Durbin said.
With the outcome so predictable, what sort of coverup made dissing Burris so compelling?
