    It doesn't get any better than this as only 3 minutes later you praise Ted "Bridge to Nowhere" Stevens" as a great senator..... You can't buy this kind of humor.

    That crook is bad, this crook is good.

    for 15 years congressman dan sat in charlie's seat, gripping rangel's gavel, chair of the most powerful panel on pennsylvania, house ways and means

    in 94 he was stripped of his hammer, then he lost re-election in his machine tight chicago district, and by 96 he was in jail, sent there by bubba's deputy ag, eric holder

    rosty had padded payrolls with phantom paychecks, he was sitting on a warehouse of congressional furniture and "momentos," but what did him in was his involvement in the "stamps for cash" scandal, part of the house post office mess

    this poster child for chicago corruption was a big part of what impelled newt into the speakership in 94

    rosty and rangel---lotta similarities

    except rosty didn't fight his ethics committee so hard, on the eve of election

    Well, that's the only way to get corrupt polticians off the taxpayers' back, it seems.

    He was a crook.
