Shady's Back...Tell a Friend!

What a difference a day makes!

Not much more commentary needed than the article itself, but apparently Representative Charlie Rangel (D) has booted Dick Cheney from his congressional office.

From the post, "Rangel moved at lightning speed to boot the man he once told The Post is a 'son of a bitch.'" Ok, that sounds a bit childish but who cares.

On other fronts apparently the new republican minority is complaining that their rights as a minority might not be respected. In case you are wondering, yes those are the same rights that the republicans withheld from democrats for 12 years.

Do they really think the public won't realize that they essentially rendered the democratic party powerless, not allowing them to propose ammendments, forcing them to meet in basement offices with no microphones (I'm not making this stuff up), and so on and so on.

Luckily the media is not letting this slide by (from the Post):

"It fell to CNN's Dana Bash to point out the awkward truth. "You can play back, almost verbatim, Democrats . . . saying almost exactly what you all just said," she said. "So is there a little bit of hypocrisy in you saying that you want minority rights?"

"This is a missed opportunity to really change the way that the House does business," Putnam offered, citing Democrats' campaign promises for "a new way of doing business."

"What stopped you from taking that opportunity when you were still in the majority?" inquired Rick Klein of the Boston Globe. "Well, I'll let Chairman Dreier speak to that."

You misspelled Dick Cheney's name. I only correct you to prevent undue confusion as to who is getting their sorry arse kicked out of their office!
