Thank god! And «don’t let the door hit you on the butt on the way out»:
‘Representative Charles B. Rangel tried to do something graceful on Friday. He wished a very public happy birthday to his longtime nemesis, Representative Bill Thomas, the departing chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. In an exchange on the House floor, Mr. Thomas, Republican of California, informed Mr. Rangel, Democrat of New York, that his birthday was a few days ago and asked what Mr. Rangel had done for him lately. “We’re saying goodbye,” Mr. Rangel said with a smile, drawing out his words and waving farewell.’

What a buncha sorehead losers. This is a great day for the country.
