CNN’s Twitter Followers Respond to Blagojevich Senate Pick

Sanchez_12.30.jpgCNN viewers had another opportunity to make themselves heard during today’s three ring circus announcement from Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. The indicted Governor appointed former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to the Senate seat once held by Pres-elect Barack Obama.

But during the news conference, Illinois congressman Bobby Rush took to the microphone telling a national audience (on six cable news networks) that Burris should be seated because, in part, he would be the only African American in the U.S. Senate. Rush also said he would work with the congressional black caucus as well as Illinois senior Sen. Dick Durbin to make the appointment happen.

CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, who has more than 38,000 followers on Twitter, aired some of the “Tweets”, including the one above.
