I’m shocked that U.S. Senator Roland Burris (D, Illinois)–appointed to the U.S. Senate last year by now-impeached Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich–is now admitting that, yes, he was asked to raise campaign funds by the then-governor’s brother Rob, despite the fact that Burris said (under oath) at the Illinois impeachment hearing that he (Burris) had “no” conversations with any Blagojevich about anything money-related before getting appointed.
I’m shocked that New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez (who, though a member of the University of Miami Board of Trustees, never actually went to college) is now admitting that, yes, he used steroids during three seasons he played for the Texas Rangers from 2001 to 2003, and that his “cousin” obtained said steroids and injected them into him (Rodriguez), even though in December 2007 A-Rod went on national television and told Katie Couric that he “never” used steroids.
I’m shocked, I tell you! Shocked!
