    Quoting:

    Rep. Charles Rangel, (D-N.Y.) was asked what he thought about the President.

    "Well," he said, "I really think he shatters the myth of white supremacy once and for all."

    Love it. (And, btw, I did check to confirm it's a genuine quote. It is.)

    Side Note: A couple of people have mentioned that they weren't familiar with Congressman Rangel before this post. For more Rangel-goodness, check out this video at Crooks & Liars, to which Paul the Spud originally linked back in June. Rangel's a good guy; check it out.

    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.

      Rangel does have a way with words  :)

      Thanks
