Surprise: Ethics Trials for Waters and Rangel Won't Start Until After Nov 2

Not that it would have made much difference, Maxine couldn't lose in CA-35 nor Charlie in NY-15 if they dragged a puppy into a press conference and and choked it to death on camera, but it gives them some breathing room, i.e. "let things cool down and let's not be a distraction or nothin."

The House ethics committee announced Thursday that Rangel’s trial will begin Nov. 15 and Waters’s will start Nov. 29.

Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), who chairs the panel, made the decision unilaterally after Republicans publicly balked last week about the delay in setting the schedule and argued the trials should be held before the November midterms.

Lofgren, is she the same ninny who brought Colbert in for immigration hearings?

There's an awful lot of Democrat political hackery being carried out by these committee chairs. It's business as usual by whichever party is in power, so I hope these Republicans get that when the wave crests. I don't mean the hackery, I mean understanding how pissed off people are regarding business as usual.

5 No, its "no distraction n shit." Keep it in the correct obama vernacular, n shit.
Fucking animals.

6 This is so wrong. The notion among the Democrat electorate that elected officials are now some kind of nobility based on divine right is deeply damaging to our political system.

I'm not even arguing they should vote for ...gasp... a Republican. Can't they just kick these crooks out in a primary and get in a nominally less guilty leftist?

--You got it wrong. She's an idiot, not a ninny.

9 Why's Maxine always wearin' her hair white?

And Charlie with the bow ties. What's with this Harvard-Yale-Princeton club thing, bro?

But hey, that Charlie, what a great guy. Maxine, though, that's another story. A nasty piece of work. Nasty. Really nasty.

11 With them it's a resume enhancer. They are stickin' it to whitey. Ergo, they are more, not less likely to be reelected. What a sad commentary on our beloved Country.

There's no such thing!

14 Too bad their constituents don't have an opportunity, prior to the election, to see the cases put on,the defenses raised, and the verdicts rendered. Then use that information in the voting booth.

Ppffftttt! Who am I kidding anyway? It's Rangel and Waters.

15 Dave, I think this is old, like REALLY old.

I read this last month at Rangel's birthday party.

Have I talked to you about Herba Life?

17 Wow, what a shocker. The next congress needs to clean house.

18 I'm beginning to think that the main reason why the LSM runs cover for the Dim-O-Craps is that they see them as the little "Spechul eDd" class children that extra care needs to be expended on, because they are "Spechul". And that give the LSM the 'absolute moral authority' to act all high 'n mighty when their little "protected dummy" class comes under any kind of fire. "Shame on you!tm How DARE you pick on these Dim-O-Craps! They don't know any better, but they have feelings, FEELINGS, DAMMIT and I won't let you say anything bad about them because they have FEELINGS! You horrible nasty brute!!! YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED!"

19 I believe we are decieving ourselves if we think the Repubs are going to behave any different from the Dems.......just saying.

Let them eat pork!!

Posted by: kingfisher at October 08, 2010 12:20 AM (ihnNN)

20 Which kind of gives us right back to a Dem majority in 2012 with a posibility of a Dem at 1600.

Applesauce with that?

Posted by: kingfisher at October 08, 2010 12:26 AM (ihnNN)

21 Yup, I'm thinking that there's a real possibility that the Republican newbies will get into Congress and get distracted by their same old same old party elders.
Then we'll have to throw that bunch of bums out in 2012. But that experience may result in the creation of a third party. These guys in congress keep playing with their trouser snakes and thinking that they're really the cat's ass. It's going to be a continuous c ycle of throwing the bums out, rinsing and repeating until, in the immortal words of Bubba Smith ("I go through the line, wrap my arms around a whole buncha people and keep sorting until I find the one with the ball"---NFL defensive lineman circa 1975 or so) we find the ones with the ball. Those we'll keep. The rest we'll throw away.

22 "Why's Maxine always wearin' her hair white?"
Because she's the new Rosa Parks.

23 No worries; pretty sure I read at hotair that the Repub leadership was looking to entice Democrats to show our colors in return for these committee chairs and high ranking positions.

So regardless who wins the election Democrats will hold the committee chair positions.

Don't you feel better now?
