OH SO HE'S A PSYCHOPATH

Roland Burris Has Already Constructed His Terrifying Death Chamber

Wonkette grave-robbing operative “Vasyl” sends us this hilarious bit of information about your would-be new junior Senator from Illinois, Roland “Don’t Lynch Me” Burris: “Just so you know, that nice old black man who is set to become the next US Senator from Illinois is well prepared. He has already built a tombstone — actually, more of a monument — with all his accomplishments listed on it. Planning ahead, he has left extra space for additional accomplishments.

Also, Roland Burris’s children? They’re named Roland II and Rolanda. No joke.” HMM… It appears that there is much to learn about this so-called “Roland Burris.” [Flickr]

Some freepers have been googling Roland Burris and asking about this little tidbit. Yes, this is his tomb. Yes, he is still alive. Our Junior Senator designate Roland Burris has had a mausoleum already built dedicated to himself, with space available to fill in future "accomplishments"

Maybe this is Blago's way of appealing to one of the most important RAT constituencies: the cemetery votes.

Looks like he's a survivalist. He's even got a bug out plan for death!

Seriously, though, that ain't half as grand as some of our "burial chambers" in south Louisiana. :)

Haha Great design. The bereaved can sit and ponder how much dough he spent for that monument while sheltered from the rain.

Our Founding Fathers had to make do with simple headstones. Thomas Jefferson’s simply states that he wrote the Declaration of Independence and founded the University of Virginia. There is no mention of his being the third President of the United states or the first Secretary of State, or that he founded the Library of Congress.
Perhaps Mr Burris is worried that when the time comes for a monument to be raised to him, people may not think that he deserves one.

He may have undertakers funeral directors in his family.

It was one profession Blacks couldn't be locked out of and sooner or later you meet everybody in that line of work, so some prominent African-American political families (the Fords of Tennesee, for example) have a funeral home somewhere in the family.

It's the same way with other ethnic groups involved in urban politics.

This guy is alive and already has his grave and tomb built!

In Illinois, I guess that's called 'early voting'?

Does this mean he's now on the voter rolls twice?

Or is this how you register for after death voting?

There are questions that no one is asking here, so I’ll go ahead and ask them:

1) How much did Burris “donate” to Blago for this “f***ing golden thing”?

2) What did potty-mouth Patty get out of this?

Evidently the Mrs. has already passed on (tomb on the right). Wonder how many glorious things are engraved on this thing in her honor. If the meek truly do inherit the earth, this pompous bleep can forget it.

>> 1) How much did Burris “donate” to Blago for this “f***ing golden thing”? <<<

"Burris has given $15,296 to Blagojevich since 2002. That includes contributions directly from him and his firm, Burris & Lebed Consulting."

Burris has long history of brazenness

This “tombstone” was the obvious inspiration for Obama’s Mile High Stadium speech decor.

Blagojevich Plays The Race Card On Fellow Democrats
Legal Insurrection Blog ^

Posted on Tuesday, December 30, 2008 2:28:09 PM by Legal Insurrection

Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s appointment of Roland Burris has put the Democratic party in a box. By appointing an African-American to the empty Senate seat, Blagojevich has forced his political opponents to risk being called racists. In supporting the appointment, Congressman Bobby Rush called opposition to Burris an attempted lynching. Whether this analogy is justified is questionable, but it is the same tactic that has been used against conservatives for decades, most recently by the Obama campaign. Democrats are getting a dose of their own medicine, and I hope it goes down like a bitter pill.

No wonder he said yes. He wants to fill in the top line(s). But it’s sort of prophetic he left room for top lines. Maybe Burris is the real magic negro!

The main question by far is did he have any prior conversations with Blag or his staff, back when the tapes were running.

My folks planned ahead...well I should say my dad did. But his marker is nothing like this..it is a regular head stone with the last name in bold large letters and then in smaller letters his name and mom’s. They are both now residing there. Actually, as goolish as it may sound, when they passed away ( with 5 years and two weeks between them) for us kids it was a blessing not to have to decide what kind of marker to have..Dad took care of business. And I miss them both..dad is gone 8 years and mom 14, both in Nov..one on Veteran’s Day and the other Thanksgiving Day.

My guess is not. Burris is probably as close to being honest as it is possible for an Illinois Democrat to be.
