Media Gives Rangel Free Pass
Chuck Rangel (D)
Charlie can't be bothered with the facts. Like most liberals he believes it when he believes it.
Recruits from wealthy families are actually overrepresented in today’s military. The only income group whose participation in the military is declining is the poor. The percentage of recruits from the poorest American neighborhoods (with one-fifth of the U.S. population) declined from 18 percent in 1999 to 14.6 percent in 2003, 14.1 percent in 2004 and 13.7 percent in 2005.
Tim Kane, an economist at The Heritage Foundation, wrote recently, “The wealthiest 40 percent of neighborhoods in America are the home of 45.6 percent of 2005 enlistees. For every two U.S. recruits from the poorest neighborhoods, three come from the richest.”
“The average reading level of new soldiers is roughly a full grade level higher” than that of the average civilian, Kane writes. And an impressive 97 percent of enlistees in 2003, 2004 and 2005 were high-school graduates, far ahead of the civilian graduation rate (80 percent). Our volunteers serve because they want to. Rangel’s position seems to boil down to, “I believe this, so it must be true.”
Here come the Libtards....
Reaching across the aisle once more to ease the partisan divide.
Is there ANYTHING the moonbats won't complain about?
The White House puts on a good spread EVERY Christmas as they have done for many generations.
But the libtards believe that since the whackjob Sunnis are killing the whackjob Shias in Iraq that NOBODY should be celebrating Christmas in America.
Not REPUBLICANS anway.
We should all be eating Beenie Weenies because after all, thats what Arianna, Chuck Rangel, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will be eating, right?
Here's what the hypocrite readers at the HuffPo are opining and you can bet that they will make the personal sacrifice of skipping Christmas dinner this year because others in the world are suffering:
Someone should open the doors to the White House and invite all the homeless people to come in an piss all over the Bush Christmas dinner.

I'm sure the HuffPo will do a follow up story on this with pictures of Arianna volunteering at a soup kitchen in L.A. to feed the homeless on Christmas.
But, I doubt it.
My guess is that she has quite the guest list for Christmas dinner at her 8 MILLION dollar mansion in Brentwood.
