Two Americas

In contemplating the Charlie Rangel scandals, one has to ask, is there one law for them and one for us?

The short answer is yes.

You see, they, the Enlightened Ones, get to live in mansions, cheat on their taxes, and fly around to deliver their sermonettes in private jets, because of all the good they do for us, the little people.

I mean, look at Mary Jo Kopechne. If she had not been left to drown, what would have become of the No Child Left Behind Act? Whether it was worth it to her we'll never know, but it was definitely worth it for the late sainted Ted Kennedy.

Did you see that the Philadelphia Library is threatening to shut down?

If they shut down the library it will save 00000.17 on everyone;s tax bill.

This is an old trick. When Clinton shut down the federal government, they made sure to close the services that people use most, liek the passport office, but continued to boot cars in Washington DC.
