Our Tax Dollars At Rest!

Charles Rangel, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, appears to have collapsed from exhaustion after another hard day of, er, finding ways and coming up with means. How surpassing strange that the man who heads up a congressional committee charged with legislating fiscal policy should have absentmindedly forgotten to pay his own taxes.

He should step down (or perhaps "roll over" would be a better way of putting it).

Update: Babalu has an excellent visual aid to help you understand the extent of the accomplishments of the Democratic Party over the last few decades.

You know, as a concerned Christian lifelong Republican, I am more than a little concerned, in a lifelong Christian Republican way, that Joe Biden has apparently questioned Rangel's patriotism through his remarks on paying taxes.

And that is why for the first time in my life I am voting Democrat this election.

Anyone with eyes to see has known for decades that Charlie Rangel is a crook. And yet he remains in Congress because his black constituents keep voting for him. I charge racism.

Steve: Heh! Looks like a meme.

Rebecca: It is racism. Why else is William Jefferson Smith in congress? Or Alcee Hastings?

Paco, you are not questioning my new astorturf putting green, are you?

If so, then you sir, are worse than Hitler!

Paco said...

No, no, Steve! I commend you for a first-class effort.
