Goddamnit I like Charlie Rangel
I've said it before, I know. But he's genuinely funny. I'm sure everyone's heard this already:
Mississippi gets more than their fair share back in federal money, but who in the hell wants to live in Mississippi?
His first apology didn't really fly:
I just love New York so much that I can't understand why everyone wouldn't want to live here.
So here's this morning's stab at it:
For all of you from Mississippi, I'd like to extend my deepest apologies. I promise I'll visit as soon as I find a food taster. My brother David Dinkins isn't available.
Thank you, folks! He'll be here for the next two years.
It's going to be fun having him in a position of real power.
