11/19/2006:"Do You Feel A Draft?"
Proving that if you want a long career in Washington you need to remain an enigmatic self-serving bundle of contradictions (he's the fourth-longest serving Democratic House member), today Charles Rangel called for reinstatement of the draft. So, he voted against the Iraq war, but feels we really need more troops to fight it. What does he care? He's too old to get drafted now, and already served in the Korean War anyway. Wonder if he was drafted or signed up voluntarily? He looks pretty good at Hillary's feet, anyway, doesn't he?
