I’m taking a hiatus from my podcast and we’ll be looking at light blogging until I get a rewrite finished on my book. However, here are some worthy links:

How do you know your career is in trouble if you’re Charlie Rangel? How about when the President suggests death with dignity for your political career.  (Hat Tip: Sister Toldjah.)

Rep. Barney Frank, who makes more than $160,000 a year as a member of Congress makes a fool of himself demanding a discount on a ferry ride.  (Hat Tip: Colussus of Rhodey.)

Meanwhile, Senator John Kerry (D-Ma), who made his fortune marrying rich heiresses, will go ahead and pay $500,000 in taxes to Massachusetts even though its not owed to make the political problem go away. Now, if only every corporation that moved to get away from our country’s high corporate taxes had to get re-elected.

Think pubic pressure of anti-illegal immigration advocates isn’t effective? Lindsey Graham to propose Constitutional Amendment eliminating birthright citizenship for illegals. A far cry from calling anyone concerned about a border security a bigot as he did a few years back.
