I haven't said for a while how much I'm gonna love having Democrats in charge of Congress, so I'm saying it now. Digby can complain in typical, churlish, Democrat (yes, Democrat) mode about Republican glee at Democrats having to do something besides obstruct government, but I find nothing more amusing than watching Democrats deal with their moonbat base.
But I seem to recall that Democrats smugly announced there would be a return to civility when they took power. I guess Charles Rangel didn't get the memo.
Rep. Charles Rangel has evicted Vice President Dick Cheney from his office in the Capitol, and the Harlem heavyweight is moving into the prime digs today...
Gilded letters were freshly painted atop the office door yesterday proclaiming "Ways and Means Committee" - confirming that the office now belongs to Rangel, the House panel's new chairman...
Rangel was giddy at the prospect of giving Cheney the boot the day after Democrats delivered Republicans a crushing defeat on Election Day...
"I'm trying to find some way to be gentle as I restore the dignity of that office," Rangel chuckled at the time. "You gotta go, you gotta go."
Rangel was so eager to bounce Cheney from the office, he phoned new House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) less than 12 hours after the polls closed to get her approval.
Cheney's office took the high road yesterday. Spokeswoman Mary McGinn told The Post, "It was always our understanding that that office was on loan."
Well, we knew that Democrat civility would last about as long as Bill Clinton's wedding vows.
