He's One of Us, Part 2

Since Roland Burris' appointment to Illinois’ vacant U.S. Senate seat, there's been talk around the web about the monument to himself.

On Thursday, Burris explained to reporters that his tombstone is already prepared because “I am a probate attorney.”

“If I’m going to try to counsel people on preparing to leave this earth, and counsel them correctly, I have to also have to mine already prepared,” he added.

Burris was appointed by Blagojevich to fill the Senate seat vacated by President-elect Barack Obama. He still faces legal challenges before he can go to Washington.
