As hard as I try

no matter how pleasnt my day has been, somebody manages to piss me off.

Today Mrs. C and I went to a nice lunch with my friend MB and her Mom. Got my first Christmas gift. On the way home Mrs. C bought a hot chocolate from Mickey D's for me. Turned on the TV to catch some golf. Life couldn't be better.

Then the news came on.

Charles Rangel (D NY) -you can look up what he did if yer interested- was censured, which means a large percentage of the House agreed he acted inappropiately.

In his first interview with the NY press he stated, among other stuff, and I'm not making this up,
"I didn't have sex with cildren."

Let's build him a monument!!!

I didn't have sex with children either, so make it 2 monuments.

Mine should be with an automatic spray system to wash off the bird doody.

And just in case you were wondering, when some of his illiterate, moronic faithful constituents said they would vote for him again because he had robbed done so much for them.

Never trust any politician, they all should be shot especially Mr. R. of NY. others are on the short list too.
I really enjoyed lunch with you and Mrs. C. It was great seeing you guys.

make it 3 monuments. I have never had sex with children, or animals...heck, I try not to even have it with my husband. Politicians, you can't live with them and you can't shoot them all.

His voter base is in Harlem, what do you expect? He should be in prison. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. :)

Being disciplined by the House for corruption is a resume enhancement in Harlem. Adam Clayton Powell, Jr was basically expelled in 1967 for corruption and was re-elected. He was refused a set again and was re-elected again. He was hit with a $25,000 fine for trying to sit the second time and the whole ball of wax ended up in the Supreme Court who said you couldn't toss a duly elected Representative. So, as far as the law is concerned, you can have sex with children AND keep your chair -- assuming they let you take it with you to jail.

BTW Crotchety, good to have you back. I followed your story all these months and wondered if you'd ever make it back!

It may be racist, but I think it's his hair. For it is pretty awesome for a black man to pull off wearing that hairstyle, and that is why many people would still vote for him. Not that I go around noticing men's hairstyles--mind you.

You go, Crotchety!

That should be 4 monuments, I haven't had sex with children either. Some of them acted like children but they were all legal age.

@ FishHawk: Must be the hairstyle
