    Yes, we all know the Congressman from Harlem has extensive knowledge of terms of endearment in the cattle industry in Florida.

    Woman at party: Damn, I see plenty of crackers at this party, but where are the niggers?

    Second woman: I see your point. Damn, you just can't have a party without niggers!!

    Announcer: Niggers, in the snack food aisle, right next to the Crackers. Don't throw a party without 'em.

    Rangel should have known his choice was uncalled for.

    I just want to thank everyone for making this thread one of the most amusing I've seen in awhile. Simply awesome!

    (I highly advise no one read it at the office, though...)

    Political party is not a shade of grey. Rangel is a D therefore all the R's have their panties in a wad. The Redskins are one of the current "causes" that the right is espousing right now. That's what this is really about.

    Hey, I'm from Georgia and grew up rooting for our AA Southern League baseball team, the Atlanta Crackers. Heck back in the day of Negro Leagues, Atlanta was home to the Atlanta Black Crackers. so which one was Rangle talking about?
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
