Roland Burris recites reworked "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" on Senate floor

Sen. Roland Burris has had quite a 2009 – going from one time Illinois Attorney General to Rod Blagojevich-appointed U.S. Senator.

How do you cap off the whirlwind year? A little health care-themed Christmas poetry on the Senate floor.

Burris addressed his Senate colleagues yesterday. “I see no reason why we can’t share good cheer with one another right here in Washington,” he said before announcing he would “share my own version of a classic holiday story with my good friends on both sides of the aisle.”
