Charlie Rangel has heard from the man (err, woman) upstairs about a House ethics probe, and the verdict is — fight, Charlie, fight! “How lucky you are when God tells you that you don’t have to take a plea,” Rangel said during a speech Thursday in Harlem. He later backtracked on communing with God, saying, “I haven’t spoken to Her lately.”
Rangel is losing what few marbles he has left. Meanwhile, one of his buddies on the House Ethics Committee refuses to return campaign cash from the Harlem Democrat and, so far, has declined to recuse himself from deliberations on Rangel’s case. I write of G.K. Butterfield, a Democrat from North Carolina’s first congressional district.
Butterfield sits on the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct and the adjucatory subcommittee that’s weighing the Rangel case. He’s refused to return $3,000 in campaign donations from Rangel or recuse himself. It’s just one example of the many Democrats who have benefited from good ol’ Charlie.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
