Holy Crap! Charlie Rangel is right on something

Charlie Rangel-D, the gruff congressman from NYC who has a history of calling President Bush a 'Bull Connor' (referring to the corrupt racist police commissioner from Montgomery Alabama), actually stood up and put the country ahead of party.

In this video hosted at, he takes Hugo Chavez to task for coming to "my country, my congressional district, and insulting my president".

Rangel is a military veteran of the Korean war, and has, at times, stood up for the military, so I have to give him some credit. But this is the strongest statement I've heard him make about someone insulting our country.

Well done Congressman.
