    Rangel's symptomatic of the problems in Washington. Watch:
    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rdtFWCrCh0s]YouTube - Rep. Charlie Rangel swears at Jason Mattera over scandal questions[/ame]
    Reminds me somewhat of the dead, golden age of Journalism where you would see Mike Wallace as this interviewer, not just some regular John Q. Citizen. Can you imagine the outcry, the backlash, the outright flak if Rangel had been a Republican, and the citizen some far-left goon?

    Oh and Rangel: It IS our "goddamned business" you loony tune ass napkin!

    Don't care for all the cursing, but besides that, the post is top-notch.

    So tell us Democrats, does Rangel represent your current DC leadership?

    And just as importantly -- where's the journalists anymore? The Fourth Estate is dead, so long as you have a D by your name.

    Yes, this story should have been HUGE over the last few months but hardly a peep.

    I guess we are a nation too busy viewing the next American Idol as the barbarians are at the gate...

    Were it a R in the hot seat instead of a beloved D, the octomom woulda never got her millions from NBC, they'd be way too busy all over the story like a hobo on a bologna sandwich.

    Would you rather he drove a Japanese SUV?

    Is this your attempt to excuse the back taxes he owes, and the apparently corrupt New York real estate deal he benefitted from?

    What he drives doesn't matter. He should be paying for it himself.

    Don'tcha think? Oh wait, never mind. Wrong word.

    I'm not saying your complaint isn't valid, but I'm pretty sure most of our politicians are guilty of the same type of overblown car.

    And most of them probably drive Japanese, which is even worse, IMO.

    Oh, nevermind...I didn't realize you were a troll.
