Congress: Charlie Rangel's world
The AP takes a long look at the personal side of Charlie Rangel and his relationship with other members of Congress: "His wife, Alma, warns him not to be naive about the glad-handling. 'You know,' she tells him, 'they're putting you on.' ... 'She says it's unseemly,' Rangel says of his wife's advice. 'I say, 'Suppose it's not real. As long as they keep saying these things until I die, what difference does it make?' But he admits, 'It's still painful. It's times like this when I have to reinforce the facts: I'm alive, I'm well, and 60 years ago I could have died when I was surrounded by hundreds of Chinese' in the Korean War."
Roll Call again highlights the legislative graveyard that has become the Senate.
"Chief Deputy Minority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) last week asked Republican Members to fill out a three-page 'private survey' reporting what constituents have told them are the most important issues facing the country," Roll Call writes. "The poll is part of the America Speaking Out project, a multipronged effort launched by House Republican leaders in May to gather ideas for their new agenda from citizens around the country. Republicans expect to release the final policy document in September."

No foolin'. I ever saw "Stretch" Pelosi nekkid, I'd turn so gay, so fast, it'd end up making Andrew Sullivan look like Vin Diesel. ;)
Makes ya wonder if Pelosi had a full body lift, doesn’t it?
Hey! I remember when the little people could ride on those things.
I recall the book “Prince of the City” about Rudy Giuliani’s mayoralty.
I wish I could recall the precise details but it stated that Harlem’s revival could not occur until Rangel and his fellow black emperors had their paws pried off the levers of power over economic opportunity in that district.
Deep in the bowels of Washington, DC lurks a predator...
