Rangel warns Chavez not to attack "my president"

This would have meant a lot more coming from a guy who hadn't referred to Bush in the past as "our Bull Connor" and Iraq to the Holocaust.

His point is actually quite weak. The left went hog wild over George "Hero for our time" Galloway's grandstandning anti-American testimony before Congress last year. They don't have a problem with foreign dignitaries insulting the home team -- except when we're two months from a midterm election and the backlash from those insults is apt to swing a few voters the "wrong" way. Rangel's noisy display of patriotism was just his attempt at damage control.

Still, it's nice to see a leftist put his country before his party.

Even if he really isn't.
