In any other universe, when one breaks the law, one generally goes to jail. Instead, Charlie Rangel had to endure standing up while Nancy Pelosi somberly intoned “you are a bad man. Bad. Really bad. Really.”
The news calls it a “staggering fall for Mr. Rangel.” Even Faux News thought this “punishment” nearly capital. A staggering fall? Ms. Pelosi didn’t even rap his nose with a newspaper.
