Gimme A Hook

It's too bad the Republicans can't call a tow operator and get Charlie Rangel's ass towed out of Congress. In the New York Post, Daphne Retter reports:

WASHINGTON - Embattled Rep. Charles Rangel's Mercedes-Benz was towed yesterday from the House of Representatives parking space he had been using for years in violation of congressional rules. As a tow truck pulled away the 1972 silver sedan under the watchful eyes of five Capitol police officers, House Republicans voted almost unanimously to oust the Harlem Democrat from his chairmanship of the powerful Ways and Means Committee in the midst of several ethics scandals.

The measure, however, failed.

Rangel refused to answer questions about the car, whose registration expired in 2004 and which has sat in the House garage, covered with a tarp and bearing no plates.

And the media is more concerned about Todd Palin telling them to go piss up a rope than this lying, conniving politician who cheats on his taxes while making the rest of us pay to support his Mercedes. Now he owes taxes on about $5,000 worth of free parking. Hook his ass outta there.

A "hook" is cop talk for a tow truck.

This guy has gotta be wrestling with dementia or something. It's like his crazy ass broke loose in a storm and is careening about the deck, scattering panicked sailors, smashing into the masts and generally just raising all kind of hell on the main deck.

Already under fire for his tax troubles, Manhattan Congressman Charles Rangel really put his foot in his mouth on Friday. In a CBS 2 HD exclusive interview Rep. Rangel called Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin "disabled." The question was simple. Why are the Democrats so afraid of Palin and her popularity.

The answer was astonishing. "You got to be kind to the disabled," Rangel said.

That's right. The chairman of the powerful House Ways & Means Committee called Palin disabled -- even when CBS 2 HD called him on it.

CBS 2 HD: "You got to be kind to the disabled?

Rangel: "Yes."

CBS 2 HD: "She's disabled?"

Rangel: "There's no question about it politically. It's a nightmare to think that a person's foreign policy is based on their ability to look at Russia from where they live.

Republicans think Rangel's comments are insulting as well as shocking.

"Charlie Rangel's comments are clearly disgraceful," Rep. Peter King, R-Long Island, said. "This is just another liberal Democrat who can't accept an independent woman running for president."

It's getting to the point where I no longer want to even open up my laptop - this crazy crap comes flying out from these idiots' mouths like June bugs on a Georgia county road.
