Douchebag of the Week – Charlie Rangel

Douchebag of the Week!What a week is has been for douchebagery!  Never before have so many tried so hard to with the coveted Douchebag of the Week Award.  Picking a winner was a close, tough call, but it’s a call we had to make.

The early contender was Reverend Jeremiah Wright who was in the running for pretty much everything that came out of his mouth this week.  Then came Al Franken, the for former funny man and current Senate candidate who wants to raise taxes and impose his will through the government on everyone, all while not paying his own taxes.  That was nearly it, Franken almost had it…until today.

Our winners this week are multiple but personified by one Member of the House of Representatives: Charlie Rangel from New York.  While the actual award is given to every Member of the House who leases a car on the taxpayers’ dime, it is being bestowed upon Congressman Rangel for his douchey quotes on the subject.

Read the story for the details, and the outrage, but realize that Rangel, rather taxpayers, pay $774 per month to lease him a Cadillac DeVille because”

“I could probably find something for … one of those red cars and then I think my constituents would say, ‘With all the money that he gets, this is the respect he shows us?'”

So NOT taking full advantage of a garbage House rule and buying your own damn car would be showing disrespect to his constituents?  What a douchebag!

Sorry Charlie, you’re full of it and have been in Congress too damn long if you think your constituents put you in office you could roll around in a car that costs more than a lot of people’s rent on their dime.  You need to spend less time with your rich constituents and more time with those who you claim to represent because it sure as hell seems like you don’t know them at all.

For you complete disregard of common sense, tack and class, you, Charlie Rangel and all your fellow Members of Congress who milk taxpayers for your personal comfort and status while advocating for larger government that will cost those people more, you are our Douchebag(s) of the Week!
