Bush = Bull Connor = Bull$@#!
Although it is far from the first time that Charlie Rangel has opened his mouth to release turds of divisive rhetoric, he's really outdone himself this time. Rangel recently stated that "George Bush is our Bull Connor," comparing our president to the Alabama segregationist and police official who infamously used violent tactics against non-violent civil rights protesters in Birmingham. Read the whole story here. (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin)
Then, in an evident effort to compound the damage he brings to racial harmony every time he opens his big bazoo, Rangel accepted an invitation to appear on Bill O'Reilly last night. (Thanks to The Political Teen for providing regular video clips I can check out in my TV-free home! Put on your wading boots and watch Rangel frustrate O'Reilly here.)
Watch, weep, laugh, and draw your own conclusions. I just have two small pointers for Rangel:
The point of doing an INTERVIEW is to ANSWER the QUESTIONS posed by the INTERVIEWER. Apparently you haven't quite grasped that concept yet.
Bill Connor? Bull O'Connor? Bill O'Connor? If you want to engage in NAME-CALLING it's more effective if you GET THE NAME RIGHT.
