Pelosi Invokes the Gospel of Matthew While Unveiling a Painting of Charlie Rangel


It’s not that often that I’m at a loss for words, but other than “WTF” I really don’t know what to say about the remarks made by Nancy Pelosi at the unveiling of a portrait of the scandal-plagued Charlie Rangel.

Pelosi made the remarks at a Capitol Hill reception for the unveiling of an oil painting of Rangel that will hang in the hearing room of the House Ways and Means Committee, where Rangel formerly served as chairman.

Rangel was forced to step down from that chairmanship last year while he was being investigated by the House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct.

“What I think what brings a passion to his work is the fact that Charlie Rangel is a deeply religious man,” Pelosi said. “How many times has he said to us: ‘The Gospel of Matthew made me do it.’ When the Gospel talked about the least of our brethren, when they were hungry, when they needed shelter, when they needed clothing. Even Christ said: ‘When I was in prison, you visited me.’ Very, very important.

“So, in Charlie’s list of accomplishments, which are very too many to mention in this big crowd, standing this long–but they were about the Gospel of Matthew,” said Pelosi.

They even had a cake with Rangel’s portrait in the icing, and Pelosi went on to talk about the “generations of children” who will come and see Charlie’s picture. These people are really twisted.
