Lefties Gone Wild!

Congressman Charlie Rangel, comparing President Bush to the man who used fire hoses and attack dogs on civil rights marchers:


Comparing President Bush to the Birmingham, Ala., police commissioner whose resistance to the civil rights movement became synonymous with Southern racism, Rep. Charles Rangel said yesterday of the president: “George Bush is our Bull Connor.”

Mr. Rangel’s metaphoric linkage of Mr. Bush to the late Theophilus “Bull” Connor — who in 1963 turned fire hoses and attack dogs on blacks, including Martin Luther King Jr., demonstrating in favor of equal rights — met with wild applause and cheering at a Congressional Black Caucus town hall meeting, part of the organization’s 35th Annual Legislative Conference.

With mental patients like Rangel representing the Democratic Party, is it any wonder Republicans are still winning the White House and both houses of Congress?
