The Otter Defense 

Captain Ed over at Hot Air is pitch-perfect in characterizing Charlie Rangel's rant at his ethics hearing as a brilliant use of "The Otter Defense," first used in the movie Animal House.

Watch both imbedded videos at the link.

Can we now encourage the politicians to do what they won't?



They should, and if we all cried loud enough, after that election, there might be a slim - tiny chance the Congress does the right thing, and removes Rangel.

He is 80, not much time for him, but he really should be pushed out.

I think the other defense from that movie works better. "You fucked up. You trusted us."
