Rangel: moving the S.O.B. Darth out of his Hill office
Charles Rangel, the incoming chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, revealed yesterday that he’s got his eye on Capitol Hill office space now held by the man he recently called a “son of a bitch” – Vice President Dick Cheney.
“Mr. Cheney enjoys an office on the second floor of the House of Representatives that historically has been designated for the Ways and Means Committee chairman,” explained Rangel, who vaulted to the top slot of the tax-writing panel – one of the most powerful in Congress – when Democrats rolled over the GOP to take control of the House.
“I talked to [future House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi about it this morning,” a giddy Rangel crowed during a news conference at his Harlem office.
…”I’m trying to find some way to be gentle as I restore the dignity of that office,” chuckled Rangel. “You gotta go, you gotta go.”
Here’s the priceless S.O.B. quote:
“He’s such a real son of a bitch, he just enjoys a confrontation. When you have those sorts of problems, you’re supposed to seek help. He acknowledged that he has problems with communication.”
