Tax cheat Rep. Charlie Rangel easily won his Democratic primary race last night.  Rangel celebrated with a long swig of expensive champagne. Need I say more?

As TV pundits hyperventilate about the extreme Right hijacking the Republican Party, Manhattan Democrats bestowed an overwhelming vote of confidence upon a man with ethics violations coming out of his ears.  What does Rangel's primary night victory waltz say about the Democratic base?  Somehow I doubt the MSM talking-head shows will devote much attention to that question.
