No one likes to see a grown man beg - unless of course it's Charlie Rangel. Any regular Joe would be in jail if they did the things he did. So, while sad, I can't imagine there are too many tears being shed across America as old Charlie grasps at straws.
From the AP:
WASHINGTON — Rep. Charles Rangel of New York asked 25,000 campaign donors Wednesday to call the Capitol switchboard and urge their representatives to vote against censuring him for ethical misconduct.
I'm sure the operators are very, very busy right now answering all those calls of support for Charlie Rangel.
Imagine if the rest of the 306, 981, 550 people in America who don't support Rangel called the Capitol switchboard? That would be something if that many people called (202) 224-3121. I'm just saying.

Exit question: Has anyone ever seen Rangel and Homer in the same place at the same time?
