    FOX News has mentioned "Former Rep. Dan Rostenkowski, the Chicago Democrat who became the leading architect of congressional tax policy in the Reagan era but later went to federal prison for corruption, died Wednesday, a family friend said." -http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/08/11/illinois-rep-rostenkowski-reportedly-dies/

    but unlike the cry babies concern over mentioning Ted Stevens' troubles (http://www.usmessageboard.com/current-events/128225-ted-stevens-dead-in-plane-crash-in-alaska.html), the Chicago Democrat said he knew "that my obituary will say, 'Dan Rostenkowski, felon,' and it is something that I have to live with,"' he said in a 1998 broadcast interview with Robert Novak and Mark Shields.

    now that's a man to admire.

    he did disgrace himself and his profession, but he moved on.

    I mention that they are corrupt. The wingnuts here backed the idiot notion that Stevens was somehow deserving in death, a news blackout on his ethical lapses,

    Dan did lots of good things as did Stevens, but both left in disgrace.

    Dan R., had the balls to admit guilt and all that would come with it today.

    oh the irony

    That sums it up well enough.

    I didn't mean to imply you were incorrect. But then again neither was I. ;)

    I can't believe you actually want to open up that can of worms.

    Anyway, I am not going to play that game. Enjoy your double standard all you want.:)
