Mulligans: Inhofe, better Boorish than Moorish

Rangel's legal fight with the House ethics committee landed him in trouble with the Federal Election Commission. If he fights the FEC, will he run afoul of the International Criminal Court? Rangel in deeper with new ethics charge

Carl Paladino: forgotten, but not gone. The former Republican New York gubernatorial candidate pens a letter insulting a journalist ("Maybe it's your youth, immaturity, inexperience, or what appears to be an endless desire to ingratiate yourself with people in power..."), then misuses the word "penultimate."

Ginni Thomas: "It was probably a mistake on my part" to leave that message on Anita Hill's answering machine. You think?

A little later in the speech, I think Obama’s lip led him to mispronounce “nucuelar.”
===
Rangel doesn’t have much to worry about, since the FEC is just investigating a typical complaint by the Rush Limbaugh favorite, National Legal and Policy Center. Nothing came of their complaints against Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Hillary Clinton, and Ted Stevens. Well… Ted Stevens was just the token Republican they complained about to look “non-partisan.”
===
Further down in his letter, Carl Paladino says, “It is the ‘Petrie’ dish of fraud, waste, abuse and corruption.”

He shouldn’t talk that way about the ComPost! He even used the “penultimate” miesspelling of “Petri.”
===
The article says that Ginny Thomas is resigning as leader of the Tea Party organization, “Liberty Central.” She thinks it is “laughable” that anyone would think it’s connected to her phone call to Anita Hill that was “probably a mistake.” Ha ha, that statement is probably a joke.

The Oklahoma electric power company also withdrew their sponsorship of the “Holiday” parade because of the name change. However, the parade should be a lot more fun now. The new sponsor is, “McNellie’s Pub!”
