    Not like he had a choice, that was becoming more than obvious:

    Rangel To Give Up Chairmanship On Ways And Means Committee, NBC Reports

    Pelosi had no real choice in the matter. She has been laying on the "most ethical" line for ages, and the fact he has gone on so long as he has was going to be a big deal in the next election.

    She probably saved about 10 seats by doing this.

    If this were a just world Rangle would be wearing an orange jump suit and passing out magazines to his fellow inmates at Leavenworth Penitentiary. Nancy Pelosi would be selling braziers on 5Th ave. Biden would be in a straight jacket. Obama would be back in his nation of birth, and Reid would be in jail for lifting his raincoat in front of school children.
    Way to go Dems, but I thank you for electing a bunch of lying, cheating, thieving, selfish, light weights to lead your dieing party.

    Voluntarily? He's a class act. I think of all those GOP crooks like Senator Stevens, Delay, Nixon...

    And if it was a just world, you wouldn't be allowed around sharp objects.
