What a Difference Two Elections Make

The American people voted to restore integrity and honesty in Washington, D.C., and the Democrats intend to lead the most honest, most open and most ethical Congress in history.

Nancy Pelosi, November 7, 2008

Democrats defeat GOP attempt to remove Rangel.

Glenn Reynolds, Today.

RELATED: GALLUP: Approval of Congress Falls to 21%.

A short summary of Mr. Rangel’s personal culture of corruption.  Defending Rangel, Rep Maxine Waters says “Many members” of Congress suffer from the same disclosure issues as Rangel.  Guess that culture is not just personal to Mr. Rangel.



  1. Ah, but notice the left-liberal weasel word, *intend*:

    ..the Democrats -intend- to lead the most honest…

    With lefties, it’s the thought that counts. (And only the thought; not the results. And only the stated or pretended thought. And only when it’s uttered by them, or serves to give them power.)

  2. Does Waters get dumber by the day?

  3. Many members suffer(!) from the same disclosure issues as Rangel.

    The poor dear suffers from having so much money he just can’t keep track if it.

    Gee, officer, many of my peers suffer from the same speeding issues as I do.

    Gee, Mr. IRS Examiner, many of my peers suffer from the same disclosure issues as I and Rep. Rangel.

    Hmmm… wonder if that would work. Crooks, cheats, and liars.

    (Sorry, Sean A… my racism is peeking out again! Shame!)

  5. Her constituents sure do, and will send her back in 2010 for more honest, open and ethical behavior.

  6. I’m afraid I can’t disagree. Rangel should have been gone a long time ago. It’s a disgrace that he still has the leadership post and Pelosi has not only done nothing about it, but approved his staying on board.

  8. Pat,

    It’s not a bad sign when you agree on something. In fact it is your ability to not ‘follow the party line’ that makes our conversations worthwhile.

    It’s, almost, conservative of you 😉

  10. Part of the reason Obamacrats are reluctant to get rid of Rangel is that he would be replaced as Chairman by Fortney “Pete” Stark … who is a certifiable lunatic.

  11. All I have to say is…. This is going to be one HELL of a fun campaign season this year!
