Thanks to Mr. Alterman for this insightful analysis of the shortcomings of Mr. Rangel. They are indeed shocking. In a future article, I would love to hear more about what he would prescribe that the Obama administration actually do in regards to Mr. Rangel, as it is not clear to me what "cutting him loose" means precisely, and it is unrealistic to hold the new administration to unspecified or unattainable standards.
