Does Burris Think Blagojevich Is God?

First, a quick review. Barack Obama, a black man, was a U.S. Senator from Illinois. Then, Obama was elected to the presidency, leaving his senate seat vacant. Then, Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich becomes embroiled in allegations of corruption, disgracing him. Blago, as governor, still has the legal right to name a successor to Obama's senate seat, and he chose (ordained) that Roland Burris would be that successor. At a big church sendoff on Sunday, Burris got up on stage and said this:
"We are hoping and praying that they will not be able to deny what the Lord has ordained," Burris said. "I am not hesitating. I am now the junior Senator from the state of Illinois. Some people may want to question that and that is their prerogative."
WHO appointed Burris to fill the senate seat? Why, it was Rod Blagojevich. In other words, Blago ordained it. It was his choice. Who did Burris say picked him? "The Lord," he said. Either Burris was referring to Blago as "the Lord" or Burris feels that Blago is doing God's work. Either way, how will that sit with opponents of Blago? Or, for that matter, the hundreds of thousands of Democrat Party members who are opponents of God?
