Naivete in Washington's Sunlight Foundation

The Sunlight Foundation runs a blogsite; but the writers are a bit naive, I guess.

Here's the comment about Rangel (who replaced Adam Clayton Powell) which I found almost laughable:

It is just astounding that Charles Rangel finds himself in a similar position of being hit with article after article revealing potential improprieties just like the man he toppled 38 years ago.

No, it's not. 38 years in any Legislature will give one a serious case of "P-I-G Syndrome"--Party-In-Government. It's the cousin of the bureaucratic psychosis, "Party OF Government Syndrome".

Many times, solons and bureaucrats have BOTH syndromes.
