DEMOCRATS: STILL TRYING TO WIN OVER THE SOUTH!

A Democratic congressman from New York says he wasn't trying to insult Mississippi in published remarks Thursday, but a Republican colleague from Mississippi says Rep. Charles Rangel should apologize to the state.

Rangel, D-N.Y., was quoted in a Thursday article in The New York Times, saying: "Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who the hell wants to live in Mississippi?"

I saw Dennis Kucinich holding forth on Cavuto today, too, about how he's now at the political center or something like that. Hey, maybe he'll finally be able to pass his bill banning space-based mind control weapons!

Say what you will about the elections, but I think the Democratic Congress is going to bring us a lot of comic relief.

UPDATE: I'm not the only one who sees it this way!
