They Still Totally Rule, Even If – So What? – It's On Their Own Planet

Abby Zimet

In a cool act of synchronicity, both Hell-No-We-Won't-Go brothers, former Senator Norm Coleman of Minnesota and sort-of Senator Roland Burris of Chicago, acted out today in the bizarre fashion we have come to expect from two guys who both seem a few beans short of a burrito.

Coleman showed up at a Senate
Republican Conference lunch meeting, even though he's actually not a senator anymore and likely won't be anytime soon, given the way his lawsuit against Al Franken has been going. And Burris refused to resign, even though fellow Illinois Sen. Richard Durbin joined the multitudes urging him to go quiet, or at least noisy but please go, into the good night like his apparent mentor Rod Blagojevich.

Coleman, Burris, Blagojevich: And they wonder why Americans don't take their politicians seriously anymore.
