Q; What do you call a Republican Congressman who resigns after being arrested for possession of cocaine?
A: A good start.
This is actually a good idea, getting rid of the scofflaws who hold high office in advance of the mid-terms (because as we all know, scandal only affects Republicans and conservatives).
Apparently, Rep. Radel (R-FL) had insisted–after being arrest for cocaine possession–that he would continue in office after attending rehab. My guess is that someone either offered him a carrot or showed him a stick (or both).
I have a not-so-little list of others who the Republican party, the Congress, and the country would be better off without, but that’s for another post.
