Charlie Rangel Compares Tea Party to Confederates
Technically he is right since TEA party values are for states’ rights in a smaller federal government. And that in a nutshell is what the confederacy was about.
Check it out:
Charlie Rangel was on CNN today with Ashleigh Banfield, who, by the way, I saw is now dating Aaron Sorkin, he of mushroom fame. He’s also the screenwriter for that news show on HBO. He used to date Maureen Dowd. Something happened there. So now it’s Ashleigh Banfield’s turn. She was talking with Charlie Rangel. She said, “I want to ask you about this deal that we’ve been talking about, the provisions that have just come out today from the House Republican leadership. I want your reaction to these specific three provisions. What do you think? Can you deal with this, Charlie?”
RANGEL: This is all about a handful of people who got elected as Republicans that want to bring down our government. You can see it in the streets. You can see where they’re coming from. And the same way they fought as Confederates, they want to bring down the government and reform it.
