[Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)] praised Conyers … as an “icon” …. [story]

[Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) said,] “He is definitely an icon.” [story]

“But he is an icon,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said.
“I would call that an icon!” Scarborough exclaimed. [story]

(What? Wellp, reckon I tend to dismiss the term “icon” when the phrase “in his underwear” is used.)
Note for non-Mac OS-X users: those are the Yosemite trash icons

    When did they change the meaning of “horn dog” to “icon?” D*mn Liberals!

    perhaps the good congressman, not being comfortable with the English language, is wont to introduce himself as “I, Con” instead of the traditional ” I’m John Conyers”.

    or perhaps he has spent time behind bars and so, in the interest of full disclosure, he introduces himself as “I, con”.

    or perhaps he is anticipating that he will be spending time behind bars.

    In the current scandal, Conyers paid ~$27,000 to the sexual harrassee out of his Congressional office budget, but it isn’t Conyers’ first rodeo:
    a) in 2006, two of his former staff members said the Congressman made them babysit his children and perform other personal errands for him while they were on the Congressional payroll.
    b) his former chief of staff pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property … After the staff member supposedly went on unpaid leave from Conyers’ office, a House ethics investigation showed that Conyers continued to pay her more than $13,000 per month.
    c) Crime runs in the family. In January 2009 a man… pleaded guilty to paying bribes in order to get city contracts in Detroit. Conyers’ wife, Detroit Councilwoman Monica Conyers, pleaded guilty to accepting bribes in exchange for a vote on the contract, and was sentenced to 37 months in prison.
    d) Conyers got a job as a radio host for an AM station in Detroit, but was fired (according to the station) for trying to book a $750-per-night hotel room on the company’s account.
    e) Conyers was also one of the 13 founding members of the Congressional Black Caucus, an overtly racist group.

    Yeah, he’s an icon alright; like Ted Kennedy he’s a womanizer and low life hustler living high on the race card.

    ^ So, what you’re sayin’ is that he actually is an icon of the (D) party.
