Venal and corrupt or just dumb?

And why, you may ask, am I opposed to the government bailing out the Big Three [1] automakers?

Because guys with all the business sense of a somersaulting giraffe ...

Between 2004 and 2007, Rep. Charles Rangel steered nearly $80,000 in campaign cash to an Internet company run by his son – paying lavishly for a pair of political Web sites so poorly designed an expert estimated one should have cost no more than $100 to create.

are dictating business choices. And we can see how that works out. For eighty .. thousand .. dollars you better get a gold-plated web site, not something that limps along and need to be spell-checked.

What? Oh, the money was spent that way because Representative Rangel is a venal corrupt old pol?

Welp - never mind, then!
