As if Mississippians, and, by extension, all southerners, didn't have enough reasons to despise and fear liberal yankee politicians, Charlie Rangel's latest disparaging remarks about Mississippi cemented the confederate contempt. Rangel played it off as really meaning that he loved New York (yet another reason to doubt his sanity and veracity) but it gave us a clear look into the mind of one of the most influential congressmen in the new Democrat controlled legislative branch. He speaks from the heart. He hates the south and southerners.
So be it. We speak from the heart as well. We hate uppity, snooty yankees.
And now, Charlie wants to bring back the draft. He floated this idea three years ago and no one payed attention. They will now.
I hope he is successful. Nothing will energize the spoiled students on America's campuses more than the threat of making them serve their country.
