Charlie Rangel, Rove-plant, traitor, or a mere sellout?
The debate rages at the Democratic Underground. Money quote:
What is U.S. Congressman Charles RangĂ©l doing? Is he betraying the Democratic Party? He's bashing Hugo Chavez and defending Bush. It is very disturbing and alarming to see a Democrat, especially a monority [sic], to critize an international Hispanic leader and ally by expressing sympathy for Bush and his racist Republicans. Has Mr. RangĂ©l gone loco? Has he turned into a rogue Democrat? Is he a traitor? Hopefully Mr. RangĂ©l has an ulterior motive. But as Democrats we must be careful not to create the slightest impression that our strong united coalition has a crack in it. I consider all minorities (African-Americans, Hispanics of course, Muslims, American Indians and all to be my brothers in the cause of solidarity). We must remain united. Solidarity is the key to victory. We do not need dissent.
Because remember: as Thomas Jefferson was fond of saying, dissent is the highest form of treason.
Read through the whole thing, by the way, it's hard to tell if it's an actual DU thread or an excellent spoof of one by Wuzzadem.Posted by Steve-O at September 22, 2006 04:26 PM | TrackBack
