This is just a brief note to show a touch of respect for a couple of partisan hacks who decided to shed their hackery for a moment to promote a better good:
Chuck Rangel, Nancy Pelosi, you may not hear me say this again, but THANK YOU. Many of your peers are basking in the glow of the fact that Hugo Chavez has translated your normal talking points into Spanish in front of the UN and the New York poor. You, however, took the higher ground.
I know you normally mean to fuck-over folks like me, but your demonstrated fraternity with our President is refreshing.
"You don't come into my country, you don't come into my congressional district and criticize my president, " Rangel said from Capitol Hill.
He added that "it would be crazy to think that Americans do not feel offended" by Chavez's remarks.
You rock, sir.....this time
. Please accept the humblest of thanks from one of your most vocal critics, as we all realize George Bush does NOT need the help of the likes of Chavez to look a fool.
