Congressman Rangel On Bush
Here for your consideration is a trenchant and hilarious political commentary.
Note: At first blush one may think Rep. Rangel's (D-New York) quote was made up whole cloth by a political comedy writer, but his quip was first reported in the Washington Post by journalist Al Kamen. Click Here.
Mr. Kamen wrote in WAPO:
But there was nothing inadvertent about a quip from Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), second-most senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Rangel was interviewed on New York Public Television WLIW21 last Monday night and asked for his quick reaction to various people. The first was Bush.
"Well," Rangel said. "I really think that he shatters the myth of white supremacy once and for all; it shows that, in this great country, anybody can become president."
We have a winner.
