    Any politician. We don't hold them to standards, and neither party is really going to invest in ethics investigations. They don't want to open the flood gates. If the Republicans went after the Democrats seriously, and vigorously for ethics violations they know that the Democrats can turn around and do the same thing to them. They're all a bunch of rats protecting their own. Which is why politicians do not suffer from any accountability these days.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Yeah, probably corrupt. Forty years in the House makes for a lot of time to practice. But I actually got a kick out of the guy. If you ever had a chance to listen to him when he wasn't in a political debate, he came across as a likable fella.

    Just read this morning that Rangel is 80 friggin' years old. Have to imagine that retirement will be one of his compromise options.
