Expecting shamelessness from Charles Rangel is like expecting blue from a cloudless sky.  But after this "apology" speech, you'd expect any body of people anywhere to rise as a group and pull him limb from limb.


They gave him a standing O.

I've spent my life cherishing and refining my utter contempt for the U.S. Congress.  But this, I do confess, even suprised me.

I started reading about congress years ago, drunks. abusers, rapists. perverts,thieves,lying power mad whores came up over and over. Rangel just represents the average. There is some serious impulse in people to venerate these scum. I have no idea why.

I agree, however, what happened met my expectations.

Payment will be obtained, however, rest assured.

"I have no idea why."

Nor do I Anon but I suspect that the majority are serving their own self-interests in that they hope to "touch" the "Big Man[Woman]" when they need a Powerful Friend for granting a "Favor".

Then I also suspect that there is a large segment of the population that still believes all of the claptrap that these 3P's* spout daily.

I still don't understand why the populous of the several States at the time of the ratification of the Constitution allowed the temporary position of serving as a politician to be come a "profession". [See item #1 above ?]

Term limits may be the only chance we have left of getting these 3P's back under control.
As IF .... they will allow us to even entertain the motion ....
[Please do notice that I am NOT holding my breath ?]
