Once again, it's time to take some words and mix up all their letters and then put them back together again to create new words, but in a totally fun and hip way.
But first, here's a few from last week's challenge: House Approves Money for Wars, but Rift Deepens…
President Obama, support everyone who suffers! (Dharam)
The POV so far? Pro, but enemy pwned our asses! FIRE!!! (Rico)
Pop is away; hot tub feuds never reform response. (Beth Elizabeth)
Here's this week's headline…
Leave your anagrams in the comments.

With the possible exception of Republicans, no major political party knows how to bend moral principles to the point of near-snapping better than the Democrats. One need read no further than today's headlines to see that's true. But what if headline reading is not your thing? Well, then this collection of Daily Show clips is the collection of Daily Show clips for you!
Charlie Rangel, John Kerry and Rod Blagojevich
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

Most people forget about li'l ol' New York State, with its shrinking violet politicians and its Aw Shucksy down-home folkiness. But Rep. Charlie Rangel's recent improprieties have sort of dragged New York kicking and screaming back into the limelight. And, since it's already here, we might as well use this opportunity to examine it through a Colbert-approved politiscope. 'Cause who knows when we'll be hearing from it again…
Eliot Spitzer: Spitzer Sandwich
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11:30pm / 10:30c.

Always the classiest of classy gents, New York Rep. Charlie Rangel has magnanimously deigned to temporarily relinquish the chairmanship of the congressional Ways and Means Committee for reasons not entirely un-related to the 900 ethics issues currently piling up behind him…
Rangel says he's stepping aside only temporarily, but he officially resigned the post in a letter submitted to the House Wednesday morning…
Rangel chose to step down, he said, because the matter "is bringing so much attention to the press and [I want]… to avoid my colleagues having to defend me during their elections."
Who do you think they should get to play Rangel in the movie adaptation of this gloriously uplifting tearjerker of a story?
I'm thinking Niecy Nash.
