Oh, Hell the Fuck NO!!!!

JACKSON, Miss. — A Democratic congressman from New York says he wasn't trying to insult Mississippi in published remarks Thursday, but a Republican colleague from Mississippi says
Rep. Charles Rangel should apologize to the state.

Rangel, D-N.Y., was quoted in a Thursday article in The New York Times, saying: "Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the hell wants to live in Mississippi?"

Rep. Chip Pickering, R-Miss., issued a news release criticizing Rangel's words.

"I hope his remarks are not the kind of insults, slander, and defamation that Mississippians will come to expect from the Democrat leadership in Washington, D.C.," Pickering said.

Elbert Garcia, Rangel's press secretary in New York, said Rangel had received calls Thursday about the Mississippi quote.

Garcia e-mailed The Associated Press a response from Rangel: "I certainly don't mean to offend anyone, I just love New York so much that I can't understand why everyone wouldn't want to live here."

[Oh, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiight... That's it. Great explanation there, Chuck. You know, it worries me that the future of our country rests in the hands of people like yourself, who cannot even come up with a better justification for an offensive comment than that. As a politician, aren't you supposed to be a *professional* liar (ha!)? I mean, do they not teach you people classes on that? Well, from me in Mississippi to you and your Al Sharpton-looking ass wherever you are, Charles Rangel: a big ol' fat FUCK YOU. I feel quite sure that you are -- in a lovely twist of irony -- no longer welcome in the Hospitality State.]

Idiocy knows no boundaries of party line, gender, race, culture, species, or element. Aren't amoebas lucky that they have no vocal cords?

True, very true... and what a lovely way of putting it!
I just have a hard time swallowing such comments from a man representing a state that willingly elected the imported Hillary Rodham Clinton, ya know? ;)

LOL....I love your post! It seems that bigots are everywhere. Problem is the really big and bad bigots think they are the epitome of fairness and civility. Then the truth comes out (of the mouths of fools...).
