Dems are wary of Kucinich, under fire for racial tension in his own office, angling for the ranking spot on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Leave it to Congress to create a punishment one is hard-pressed to identify. Rangel deserves much worse, as his crimes would put you or me behind bars.
The school accepts and posts a revolting master's thesis.
Holder's DOJ shrugged at direct evidence of voter intimidation in the New Black Panther case, but it has no problem accusing L.A. cops of engaging in discrimination on the basis of a single conversation.
The Canadian university hosts the odious anti-Semite and pro-terrorist George Galloway, and moves to suppress the free speech rights of a Jewish rabbi for condemning him.
The troubling consequences of the Iraq invasion still bedevil our foreign policy, and will for the foreseeable future.
NATO members are preparing to meet in Portugal for what may be one of the most crucial summits in the alliance’s 61-year history.

Ahmed Ghailani, a key figure in the 1998 bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa, was cleared by a jury of 276 murder and attempted murder counts.
Our soldiers are dying in greater numbers than ever in Afghanistan. So yes, the left sunk so low as to politicize their deaths under Bush, because they sure don't seem to care about their lives now.
Pushing toward amnesty may seem insane, but this president is a hard edged ideologue who is dipping into his community organizer bag of tricks. And he knows exactly what he's doing.
Hispanics owe a debt of gratitude to African Americans for showing us what allegiance to the Democrat Party can bring.

Can anyone find 14 non-partisan, impartial proponents of clean government in Washington? Not likely.
The former chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Charlie Rangel, has been convicted on most of the corruption charges brought against him:
A House ethics panel has convicted Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) on 11 of 13 counts of violating House ethics rules.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), the chairwoman of the adjudicatory subcommittee and the full House ethics committee, announced the decision late Tuesday morning following an abbreviated public trial of the 20-term lawmaker and nearly six hours of deliberations.
“We have tried to act with fairness, led only by the facts and the law,” Lofgren said. “We believe we have accomplished that mission.”
Rangel now faces a variety of potential punishments, from reprimand to expulsion from the House. Both Ed Morrissey and Jazz Shaw predict the reprimand, which amounts to telling Rangel that he did a no-no, but on formal stationery. I join them in their justifiably cynical prediction.
As for Rangel, he tried the entertaining gambit of walking out on Monday’s proceedings against him under some pretense about his legal representation. Next he’ll lay down another race card, to set himself up for the always useful Absolute Moral Authority Card.
Which gives me the opportunity to update the viral classic.
Update: Along with the Absolute Moral Authority Card, Rangel ought to get a Golden Ticket.
Update: To no one’s surprise, Rangel “deplores” the verdict.
In less than a week, some GOP leaders have changed their tune on earmarks. But is it because they finally listened?
