    Re: GOP Fails to Remove Rangel

    What constantly amazes me is that Democrats will defend their crooks to the end (with the help of the mainstream media) while Republicans throw theirs under the bus. And yet they claim that Republicans are the culture of corruption. Why is it that 14 of 17 members of congress being investigated by the ethics committee are Democrats yet the MSM still refuses to cover them in the same manner as they would if they were Republicans?

    No, as Easy Target said, conservatives throw their miscreants under bus.

    You see, we're loyal to our core values. Democrats are loyal to their pop stars.

    Please provide us with all that corruption and how it was defended to the death. Sources?

    They do?

    Okay lets look at some history first.

    Bob Ney.. did the Republicans kick him to the curb? No, he was allowed to keep his job for 2 months after he admitted to corruption. What did the Republican's do... demanded he resigned.. which he did not, and then what did they do? Nothing.

    How about our favourite gay paedophile? Mark Foley... what did the Republican's do? Not only did they cover for him for years, but when he finally was caught, key Republican's had the balls (or rather non-brain) to defend him at least indirectly.

    Or how about our favourite Alaskan. Scandal after scandal and yet she is still a darling of the right. Ups forgot to pay some taxes.. okie dokie no problem, crap happens. Ups I got paid to live and eat in my own home... no problem, nothing wrong in that, just pay the money back.. or the 150k in cloths that poofed into garbage bags?

    Tom Delay... Bill Frist? How about them?

    There are many more, and yes many are not sitting congressmen any more.. most were defeated by Democrats or went to jail.

    And if we go to sitting Republicans.

    How about Vern Buchanan, or Ken Clavert, or Nathan Deal or John Ensign or Jerry Lewis or Mitch McConnel or Don Young? All are on the most corrupt list by CREW, the same list as Rangel and Murtha. Are you saying that Rangel and Murtha deserve to be on the list but the Republican's do not?

    I invite you to produce similar examples (not fantasies,) of such recent behavior from the Republicans, and a concerted attempt by that party to shield the perpetrator from removal from committees, or prosecution. The clock is running . . GO!
