Charlie Rangel melts down

We at VUI have always had some admiration for Charlie Rangel, a Democratic member of the US House from New York.  While we rarely agree with Congressman Rangel, he has always been an interesting character in a political world filled with consultant managed blowhards.  

That is one reason VUI was disappointed when Charlie Rangel got caught up in a real estate based ethics scandal.  We had hoped he was an honest liberal.  

But, Charlie Rangel did not disappoint us on entertainment recently.  While the consultant ran politicos would be quick to fall on their swords for the President and the Democratic Leadership, Rangel took the House floor to go on a defiant rant.  Watch the video below.  Wow.  The guy has audacity in his old age, if not ethics.

  1. I wonder when Charlie will start talking about buying votes for Democrats in New York.
