Charlie Rangel opens his mouth...and mocks the South: (hat tip: reader CRB)
Its not just committees our influence within the House Democratic caucus will grow enormously, Mr. Rangel said in an interview.
To that end, he sketched out an expansive federal agenda: Teaming up with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg on gun control, passing new tax incentives for urban job programs, and redirecting federal money to New York in return for the outsize tax collections that the federal government makes here.
Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the hell wants to live in Mississippi? Mr. Rangel said.
So Rangel is already talking GUN CONTROL? GO to it Charlie; we will have the House and Senate back in 2008.
Haley Barbour '08!!!
I've driven through there. Very friendly folk. The elitism and snobbery in Rangel's remarks should get a trip to the woodshed in response.
Ughh, I do.
We are gonna wave Rangell around to the voters like a flag. He's good for a million votes
Well, Charlie Rangel isn't in Mississippi, so that's one thing it has going for it.
Of course, the MSM will be all over this.
Charlie will be totally given a pass
Can we say "Who the hell wants to live in Harlem"?
Yes. This will be repeated just like all other Dem statements of arrogance, meaning: "Try to find it anywhere tomorrow."
I would love to see the new chairs of House committees to hold hearings on Live tv. It will be so enlightening to voters across the nation. Intelligence? haha Homeland Security? haha (Alcee Hastings as Intel chair and Bennie Thompson as HS chair) It would be classic entertainment.
Dang, you beat me to it.
Well, at least Harlem doesn't have fire ants.
It's been my dream for some time to move back to the Gulf Coast. Biloxi-Gulfport would be nice.
Let's keep quiet on the whining and let them shoot themselves in their own feet.
[Can they shoot themselves in the foot, without guns? /sarc]
I'll take Mississippi over New York anyday. At least Mississippi doesn't put people like Hillary R. Clinton in the U.S. senate.
President Bush better hold the line on gun rights. He appears ready to sell the country down the river on immigration, so Bush can at least support the second amendment, right?
Note to folks in Mississippi: Rangel's from NYC, BTW. Not Upstate NYS.
I happen to live in Mississippi and you are right, at least Rangel isn't here.
However, there were many republicans on this web site that said the very same thing after Hurricane Katrina, I disagree with both. It's a great place to live.
RE: "who the hell wants to live in Mississippi"
If we ever do decide to throw in the towel being conservatives behind enemy lines, Mississippi is way up there near the top of the list!
